Rimsha Khan (@lifewithrimmi)

From: Pakistan
Professions: Elementary school teacher and content creator
Favorite bareMinerals product: BAREPRO Performance Wear Liquid Foundation
Best beauty tip: To always clean your makeup brushes — and practice makes perfect. You don’t just learn to do makeup overnight, but with the right clean products, it definitely helps improve your skills!

What do you love most about bareMinerals?
I love how bareMinerals is so diverse. I have never had any trouble with shade matching!

What does clean beauty mean to you?
Products that are safe for every skin type, individual and for the environment as well. Clean beauty is something that I can blindly trust because I know it will not be toxic or harm me or the planet.

Aside from clean beauty, what are you most passionate about and why?
I am very passionate about product photography and working with kids. As a content creator, I am always trying to perfect my photography skills and it has been my creative outlet since the pandemic started. It brings me great joy to work with such wonderful younger kids and help them grow.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
Beauty-related advice would definitely be: less is more, always double cleanse, and wear sunscreen!
Non-beauty: be patient and be grateful; hard work will always pay off.

What got you interested in beauty in the first place?
Growing up, watching my mom and my sisters have a blast and feel good when wearing makeup became my go-to as I grew up. I started off by stealing my mom’s mascara and eyeliner and later on, her whole vanity. I found out how putting on a simple blush or mascara can change your mood and boost your confidence. It has been a way for me to express myself and have a good time.

What’s something that not many people know about you?
I think a lot of people on social media think I am shy, but I am actually a very talkative and outgoing person. I try to find joy and happiness in everything. I like to stay positive and enjoy life.

Madi Prettyman (@chooseyourglow)

From: Fresno, CA
Profession: Skincare influencer and Instagram coach
Favorite bareMinerals product: BARESKIN Complete Coverage Serum Concealer
Best beauty tip: In order to make your makeup look good, you need to have a moisturized, balanced base. Using a hydrating cream right before you do your makeup is always a must for a smoother-looking complexion.

What do you love most about bareMinerals?
I love that they offer clean beauty and skincare options without sacrificing the quality and effectiveness. They truly care about their customers, and it shows.

What does clean beauty mean to you?
Clean beauty is an amazing way to make conscious decisions for both your health and the environment. It means full transparency of what exactly is in products and being mindful of where the ingredients are sourced. I feel safe using products that keep my health in mind.

What are you most passionate about and why?
Skincare has been a passion of mine since high school when I started to suffer from severe breakouts. When I finally took the time to do my research, and learn about the effectiveness of ingredients, I knew I wanted to help others reach their skin goals as well. In 2018, I started my skincare blog and Instagram page and ever since it has been my sole purpose in life, to help others achieve what they think is unachievable.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
To always lead with kindness. The internet can be a very scary place sometimes, and I have been a victim of hateful comments time and time again. However, my mother always taught me to lead with kindness, because you never know what someone else is going through. I try my best to make my page a place with no judgement, and lots of love. I truly love my community, and their well-being; they make my world go round!

What got you interested in beauty in the first place?
I love that beauty is a way of self-expression. The feeling of trying out a new makeup look or adding a new serum to your self-care ritual truly makes me feel like I can be whoever I want to be. It makes me feel confident in my own skin and has shown me to be outwardly passionate about things. I see that same effect on other people in the beauty space, and I LOVE THAT. It is so empowering!

What’s something that not many people know about you?
I love to cook! It is another form of self-care for me. Putting on a podcast, a pair of sweats, and dancing around the kitchen while making a new recipe I found online is so therapeutic. Pasta is my favorite! I practically beg my friends to come over for dinner — I love to cook for people as well — it must be the Taurus in me!

Hikari Murakami (@hikarimurakami)

From: Orange County, CA
Profession: Mom, makeup artist, content creator and small business owner
Favorite bareMinerals product: COMPLEXION RESCUE Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream
Best beauty tip: To put on your bottom mascara first before your top to avoid smudging!

What do you love most about bareMinerals?
I love bareMinerals for the simple and clean approach to beauty that allows us to feel good, look good, and do good. 

What does clean beauty mean to you?
Clean beauty goes beyond what we put on our skin. To me, it’s about thinking beyond ourselves, to think about others and our planet. What we do and how we do it affects each other. Clean beauty to me means compassion.

Aside from clean beauty, what are you most passionate about and why?
I’m passionate about my Japanese culture and cooking! I’m a mom to a half Japanese/half Filipino toddler, and it’s important to me that our kids know and be proud of our culture and roots.

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
Be the person you want to become. I always thought that you had to have certain things in order to be happy. But it’s really about embodying your best self now.

What got you interested in beauty in the first place?
I got into beauty because no one could work with my Asian features, especially my monolids. So, I practiced on myself and eventually got into loving the artistry of makeup and how that can enhance someone’s features. This eventually led to me becoming a makeup artist and now a content creator!

What’s something that not many people know about you?
I’m a former hip hop dancer and choreographer that taught and performed worldwide!
