Breaking Beauty Podcast

Apr 22, 2020

Who needs some motivation mojo right now?! Today, we’re serving the JUICE, with the “Queen of Beauty” Leslie Blodgett, creator of Bare Minerals makeup — celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. With just five ingredients on the label, BareMinerals Original Loose Powder Foundation was a panacea for skin so sensitive, makeup wasn’t even an option. But it should have been a flop. Listen in to find out how Leslie would turn the famous “tap-swirl-buff” method into a global phenomenon. (Stay tuned until the end for our honest review!) 


Named the most influential woman to impact the beauty industry since Estée Lauder by the New York Times, Leslie is the person responsible for changing the way millions of women apply makeup. She’s also been known to do the splits on boardroom tables! Now an educator, philanthropist and angel investor, Leslie gives us a sneak preview of her debut book, Pretty Good Advice: For People Who Dream Big and Work Harder. Plus, find out what Leslie is calling the next big thing in beauty, and the sound advice that any entrepreneur can take all the way to the bank.
