I recently had the pleasure of jetting off to Malaga with the lovely ladies from Bare Escentuals and Easyjet to see exactly what their new collaboration for Bare Escentuals’ 35th Birthday was all about…

Now at first I thought that it was an unlikely pairing, however as I boarded our Easyjet flight to Malaga I could exactly why these two brands decided to go into cahoots together as the bareMinerals Get Started Kit (£38 on board) is in fact one of Easyjet’s biggest sellers on board!  So, as a result, they decided to go all out and if you’re travelling with Easyjet this week, you may well have a Bare Escentuals makeup artist on board with their “Makeup in the Sky” promotion and they’ll be ready to give passengers makeovers while they fly! A few of our group actually got the inflight treatment on our trip and they were super impressed… mainly that they even found room to do the makeovers on board in the first place!

One of the best things about the trip was that I got to sample the mineral makeup range and it completely changed my opinion of the powder based line! In the past I’d steered clear of mineral makeup as I assumed it wouldn’t suit my skin and I hated the idea of buffing powder onto my face, rather than applying a dewy, liquid foundation. However the lovely Sarah-Jane Froom (European Makeup Artist for Bare Escentuals) gave our group a fab tutorial and I’m pleased to say I was really impressed with the formulas and the overall effect. Despite the buffing action, my skin looked flawless, very natural and, despite my preconceptions, not at all cakey. Other than the foundation, we also got to see a few of the newer products in the collection and were happy to see some great injections of colour into the range with their new Pretty Amazing lip colours. The formulas were very creamy and the pigments were very high, making all of us look super glam… which helped later on as we hit the town!

I always like to be proved wrong when it comes to silly preconceptions I have with brands and I can safely say that I was wholeheartedly proved wrong on this fabulous trip. The Bare Escentuals range (which also now has a great skin care line up too which has a moisturiser I LOVE) should be a staple for anyone that likes flawless skin and that hasn’t had success with liquid based foundation in the past. I must also say a huge thanks to the makeup artists and Easyjet as we had a fabulous flight with them and the makeovers were brilliant. Make sure you keep an eye our for the “Makeup in the Sky” artists, who might well be on board easyJet Flights from LGW to Tenerife this June (i.e. for this week only) on selected Tuesday and Fridays as a little treat to customers lucky enough to be aboard the selected flights.
