Softer eye looks with bareMinerals The Modern Icon and Classic Cream liner

Now that the weather is warming I’m finally in the mood for a softer palette. I loved a stronger eye in the winter but it just feels off for me in spring. I’m late to the game with bareMinerals Modern Pop Ready Eyeshadow palette in The Modern Icon but that doesn’t mean you need to be late too. When bareMinerals sent this I started to wear it but I was still into my winter darkness, now I love this softer look especially since I’m wearing softer colors in my clothing too.

bareMinerals READY palettes are among my favorites. Just like we’ve come to expect with bareMinerals and bareEscentuals the colors are minerals so they don’t have preservatives and are cruelty free. bareMinerals uses a proprietary SeaNutritive Mineral Complex that helps the skin on your eyes so you are doing more than make them look pretty – the mineral complex has skin-nourishing benefits that will help reduce the look of fine lines.

The Modern Icon has this great POPping design with dots on the compact and on the shadows. Of course they wear away on the shadows but it’s still cute to look at.

Top left is Chic which is a very soft pink cashmere shade. Next to that is Carefree, which is described as peach sherbet. The bottom row contains Sophisticate which is a light dusty amethyst and Exhale, the smoky taupe.

None of the shades are dark in this palette so it’s great for both young and old. It is appropriate for a teen that you don’t want to see covered in dark shadows and it’s soft enough to not emphasize the texture on eyes of someone older.

This is available at Ulta, bareminerals.com, and beauty.com for $30. And while you are shopping you need to check out the bareMinerals Lasting Line Long-wearing Eyeliner in Classic Cream for $16. Hopefully this isn’t limited edition like the palette because this is a winner for all year round.

While people talk about using liner on their waterline, I find that it closes my eyes up too much. The bareMinerals Lasting Long Wearing Eyeliner in Classic Cream is the perfect solution to this because it actually opens up the look of my eyes. While it’s easy to wear this as a regular eyeliner, especially under your eyes, I prefer it on my bottom waterline. It doesn’t last all day but it does last for most of the day which I find amazing.

One side is the twist up liner while the opposite end has a built in sharpener and smudger.

Everything I’ve been reviewing lately from bareMinerals has made me so happy. Lash Domination mascara is terrific, Kiss Me lipstick just made my Top Ten Summer Lip favorites list and now The Modern Icon and Classic Cream eyeliner are added to the list. Which bareMinerals products are favorites of yours and should be added to my try me list? — Marcia

    I saw this palette and debating on it. I don’t know why I adore Bare Minerals they make beautiful products. I think I need that liner now too 🙂

  2. Anastasia | 8th May 15

    The palette looks really nice! I think I would rock all the shades there.

    I love the Ready eye palettes, the shadows are so easy to work with! I like that this is a softer array of colors – I’ve been feeling softer eyes and bold lips as the weather warms!

    I’m really like these eye shadow quads that seem to be popping up everywhere. This one from BareMinerals looks like a great neutral palette.

  5. Destany | 8th May 15

    That palette looks really nice! Soft shades.

  6. Chelsea | 8th May 15

    I’ve always wanted to try one of the Bare Minerals eyeshadow palettes! This one looks super pretty.

    I love that the liner lasts on the waterline – I can never get a liner there to stick very long. I need to try theirs.

  8. Jess Scull | 8th May 15

    These shades are so pretty! Love BareMinerals shadows!

    These shades are really pretty and the fact that they last on the waterline is a huge deal because my eyes are sensitive. I have chronic dry eye so my eyes will tear like crazy sometimes.

    Very pretty soft shades for spring. I have a couple of the BM cream shadows, and you’re reminding me to find them and use them before I run out and buy more 😉

    That is a nice looking palette, I prefer lighter colors year round! I also love those liners, it is so handy to have the sharpener right in the end!

  12. Justina | 9th May 15

    I love Bare Minerals. This palette looks fabulous!

  13. Brooke @ Blushing Noir | 9th May 15

    Those are definitely some beautiful shades! I love the liner too!

  14. Erika | 9th May 15

    Ooooo! I NEED that palette! NAO!

  15. Mai | 9th May 15

    I like this palette, it’s got such a spring look to it without resorting to pastels!

  16. Amber | 9th May 15

    This is a really soft and flattering palette, and eyeliner! I didn’t realize they have a cream liner, but I find that shade to be better on me too.

  17. Lisa Heath | 9th May 15

    This looks like a really nice palette with shades to go from day to night with.

  18. Francine Brandow | 10th May 15

    I really like these colors, they’re soft and so wearable.
