Rethink What Matters!!



"Freedom: the condition of being free; the power to act or speak or think without externally imposed restraints"

When you think of make-up, sometimes you think "Coverage" as opposed to "enhancing". Some may even think "Heavy" instead of "uplifting". Well, though as a makeup artist I know that there are all types of cosmetics that offer all of the above, I understand that the average woman, the consumer, may not know the difference.

Bare Escentuals is another company who realizes that there are misconceptions as far as what people think of when they think of make-up. They also realize that beauty is not skin deep, it comes from inside. Who we are and how we love and care for each other is part of what makes us beautiful.

In an effort to accentuate the positive, empower women and their self confidence inside and out, Bare Escentuals has launched a movement known as "Rethink What Matters". With this campaign, they will be releaseing thought provoking taglines to help start honest conversations between women about things that really matter to them. Thankfully, when we're with our girls, we can talk about anything (thank God) without being judged or censored. Now, there will be topics we can add to those heart to heart talks and really get into the nitty gritty of who we are, what matters to us and how to be a better us:)

Now, I'm not saying that Bare Escentuals is going to start sky writing, or mailing out random "fortune cookie" like papers with sayings on them.. LOL.. though, wouldn't that be funny?!
What they are doing is for example, one foundation reads "Rethink Going Bare in Public". This Bare Minerals foundation feels light (weightless even) but gives you all of the flawless coverage you're looking for.

Every week at www.Rethinkwhatmatters.com there will be a new discussion topic and 5 questions for you to answer (you gotta love the interactive part of it all!! LOL) which will give you a chance to win free stuff and goodies!! Yuh-huh!!! I sooo did just say FREEBIES!! Oh I got your attention now I can FEEL it!!! LOL.. The new products and topics will be featured weekly (every Friday).

Now, the REAASSONN you're going to want to stay tuned to my bloggy-poo is because I'm going to let you know when the really BIG contest is approaching, so that you can sign into RethinkWhatMatters.com and try to get yourself some BIGTIME prizes:) Oh yeah baby!! I got the info right here, you'll see it here first and you'll take it home!

You will also be able to start winning giveaways here at www.GlowingFaces.blogspot.com!! Just for being a loyal reader:) So be sure to stay tuned, keep reading, visit the website listed above and load up on some good stuff!!

Rethink What Matters!!
Sound advice for every day of our lives doncha think?!
