Tennis star Naomi Osaka has been named as bareMinerals’ new brand ambassador.

Born in Japan to a Haitian father and a Japanese mother, Osaka has lived in the U.S. since she was a child and is now considered to be one of the sport’s most exciting talents.

Now, Naomi has been tapped by bosses at clean beauty company bareMinerals as a Power of Good Ambassador and will serve as the face of BAREPRO Performance Wear Foundation.

“To me, The Power of Good means being the best version of yourself without sacrificing integrity or putting others down,” she said in a statement. “With bareMinerals’ BAREPRO Foundation, I don’t have to compromise clean beauty and natural-looking results for performance. These formulas keep up with my active lifestyle and never fail to deliver.”

For the BAREPRO campaign, Naomi was photographed by Zoey Grossman in Los Angeles, California. Her beauty look was created by bareMinerals’ global make-up artist, Nikki DeRoest, with the snaps showing her posing in a dress and with her tennis kit.

“We chose Naomi not only because of her extraordinary athletic abilities and unmistakable passion for her craft, but also for the confidence, poise and perseverance she demonstrates on and off the court,” said president of bareMinerals, Jill Scalamandre, of the 21-year-old. “She is a remarkable person, and I am thrilled to welcome her to the bareMinerals family.”

Naomi, who is the reigning US Open and Australian Open champion, follows in the footsteps of other celebrity bareMinerals ambassadors, such as Hailey Bieber, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Letitia Wright.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: ‘Fad diets aren’t for me’

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley doesn’t buy into fad diets.

As a model, the 32-year-old works hard to maintain her slim figure and flawless complexion.

But in a new chat with Vogue Australia, Rosie admitted that there’s no shortcuts when it comes to looking good.

“I am a big fan of Elle Macpherson’s WelleCo powder I think that’s great, great for throwing in smoothies or you know just mixing in with some water in the morning,” she told the fashion glossy. “I’m not really one for like fad diets or restricting myself but eating well, drinking lots of fluid and then great make-up products – lots of facials and great make-up!”

When it comes to the products she uses in her beauty routine, the British beauty, who’s mum to son Jack with her fiance Jason Statham, likes to keep it clean.

Mineral make-up is one of her favourite formulas, which is why she chose to team up with bareMinerals.

“One of the reasons I love working with bareMinerals is because it’s clean and that really is great for me, in my personal life,” the blonde beauty explained. “When I’m doing my own make-up I lean more towards non-comedogenic products, that really, really helps me with my skin and stripping out any skin or beauty products that have pore-clogging qualities to them or ingredients – I see a big difference when I do that.”

As for her most important beauty rule, Rosie doesn’t leave the house without SPF on.

“With my children, that’s going to be something that I like lather on them. Being British, anytime the sun comes out you’re going to bake yourself in it,” she laughed. “I just think that’s the one piece of advice I hear time and time again from skin experts is the importance of wearing SPF.”

Letitia Wright considers charitable acts part of her beauty routine

Black Panther star Letitia Wright credits selfless acts of charity for her flawless glow.

The 25 year old, who serves as an ambassador for bareMinerals, is dedicated to working on her inner beauty more than her makeup routine, and insists that helps her look great from the inside out.

“You can put makeup on, but to me it’s about what’s on the inside. I work on it every day,” she tells People.

The actress has devoted herself to self-improvement and putting time into bareMineral’s Power of Good campaign, which helps raise funds for charities that aid causes such as women’s education and mentorship.

”It’s a wonderful example that inspires young women like me,” she shares of the organisation. “Treat your people the way you want to be treated. Ask yourself, ‘What did I do today that was kind and loving? And what didn’t I do that I can work on?’”

Though she doesn’t place a great emphasis on products, Wright has a few favourites she relies on to get red carpet ready – like Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser: “This changed the game for me. It leaves my face so soft, my friends actually rub the backs of their hands on it,” she says, noting that when it comes to accentuating her stunning eyes, she uses bareMinerals’ Lastopia Volumizing Mascara.

“This makes my lashes look so great, I don’t even need to curl them,” she says. “My guy friends will be like, ‘Oh you’ve got those (false lashes) on’. And I’m like, ‘Nope! It’s all me!'”

Wright’s appreciation of cosmetics is relatively new, as she has always liked being a natural beauty: “I never really liked make-up to begin with; I just thought it was a big hassle,” she told Elle last year. “But then I started to go to events and having makeup artists do it for me and I got into it.

“When you have your makeup done really well and it doesn’t look like the wrong colour or tone, or just not me, then I feel confident in it and I can just roll with it.”

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley suffers from less than perfect skin

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has always struggled with her skin.

The model always looks picture perfect when snapped for a fashion campaign or on the red carpet, but she told Refinery29 that, like millions of other women, she’s not immune from skin problems.

“I’ve never had perfect clear skin. It’s always been this ongoing struggle and upkeep with me,” she sighed. “Now in my 30’s, I’m really diligent to not put my face in the sun and find an SPF that protects my face but doesn’t clog me up.”

She also has regular facials, and relies on a potent night cream both before and after bed and during long flights.

And when it comes to her most famous feature, her lips, the bareMinerals Beauty Ambassador shuns harsh scrubs in favour of exfoliating with a towel after she showers.

“Making sure that you gently rub or buff away any dead skin with the edge of the towel works well for me,” she smiled.

“One of the first things I do while I’m doing my make-up or skin care is apply some kind of lip balm, like Aquaphor, and I’ll just let that melt in. My lips are usually the last step when I apply make-up.”

And because her lips are so prominent, the 31-year-old barely has to touch them when making herself up.

“I like to play up my eyes. I feel lucky that I don’t have to do too much to my lips – they’re already there. But if I do choose to do a lip, I’ll do a very clean eye and just keep it natural,” she shared.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has helped bareMinerals launch a new charity initiative.

The British supermodel was named as a new global brand ambassador for the cosmetics company last September (18), joining the likes of Hailey Baldwin, Letitia Wright, and celebrity make-up artist Nikki DeRoest.

Now, Rosie has announced bareMinerals’ Chain of Good initiative in conjunction with the unveiling of the brand’s BAREPRO Longwear Lipstick range.

“To celebrate the launch of the new lip-loving, vegan BAREPRO Longwear Lipstick, I am kicking off the @baremineralsChain of Good, which encourages all of us to share a little positivity by tagging someone who has been a force of good in your life,” she captioned a post on Instagram on Thursday (17Jan19).

“For the first 1000 Instagram posts with the hashtag #GoodThatLasts, bareMinerals will donate $10 for each post to women’s charities that encourage mentorship, entrepreneurialism and education. I am tagging my fellow @baremineralsambassador @haileybieber who is as beautiful on the inside and she is on the outside. Keep the chain going!”

The Chain of Good initiative will run until 21 January. Rosie stepped out at an event in Los Angeles on Thursday to promote the new lipstick, which has been described as the “first long-wear, vegan lipstick, rich in nourishing minerals”.

She sported a white shirt and black trousers from The Row for the day, and teamed the look with Jimmy Choo stilettos and Vhernier jewellery.

While Rosie has previously fronted campaigns for ModelCo and Burberry Body, she recently shared that teaming with bareMinerals was a natural fit because she is such a fan of the New York-based company’s formulas.

“I love to champion brands that celebrate beauty in the right way and I’m proud to be a part of bareMinerals. As a mum and model, I don’t have time to compromise – I need reliable products that can deliver strong colour payoff and are also good for my skin,” the 31-year-old commented.

Hailey Baldwin makes a point of ensuring her outfits are “attainable” for her fans.

The model has landed several high-profile gigs in recent months, including campaigns for clothing brands Tommy Hilfiger and PrettyLittleThing, as well as for beauty company bareMinerals.

While Hailey loves experimenting with fashion and trends, she has now discussed how she thinks it is important for her to be seen in items accessible to her followers.

“I’m so into clothes and fashion. I like being put together. I love looking cool, but I also feel like that can be done in sweats and a big coat and sneakers,” she said in an interview with Buzzfeed. “I just think there’s something so cool about natural beauty and just being able to just be yourself. I think attainability is much more attractive than when you see a picture of somebody that you admire and you’re like, ‘That’s just unattainable to me.'”

Hailey, who wed Canadian popstar Justin Bieber last September (18), went on to state that she finds putting extravagant outfits together to be “exhausting”.

And she tries to present her most authentic self on her social media platforms, especially as young women make up such a large portion of her nearly 17 million followers on Instagram.

“Everything on the Internet, at some point, it’s like it’s a false reality. That’s just what it is. You’re looking at people’s lives through photos, and you’re not seeing their actual life. For me, social media has much more become about work. I use it as a tool more than I use it as something to show off my life. I also like it to be able to stay in touch with followers and people that have supported me,” the 22-year-old noted.

Elsewhere in the chat, Hailey explained that she will delete social media apps from her phone for days or weeks if she finds the platform to become too overwhelming, and regularly practices self-care by watching a movie or visiting a spa.

Hailey Baldwin wants to be ‘open and vulnerable’ in 2019

Hailey Baldwin wants to be open about her personal struggles in the coming year.

The model had a very exciting 2018, having landed a number of high-profile fashion and beauty gigs with brands like Tommy Hilfiger and bareMinerals, while she also married her popstar husband Justin Bieber towards the end of the year.

Hailey has now shared a lengthy Instagram post detailing her hopes and ambitions going into 2019, detailing her aim to be authentic and honest regarding the troubles in her life.

“Stepping into 2019 I want to be more open, I want to be more open about the things I struggle with, and be able to be more vulnerable. I’m a 22 years old (sic), and the truth is no matter how amazing life may look from the outside I struggle…,” she wrote on Monday (07Jan19). “I’m insecure, I’m fragile, I’m hurting, I have fears, I have doubts, I have anxiety, I get sad, I get angry.”

Hailey went on to reveal that she often compares her looks and achievements to the women she follows on Instagram, and admitted that this practice frequently knocks her confidence and belief in herself.

“Every single day is a confidence battle for me. I’m not writing this for a pity party or for sympathy but just to simply say, I’m a human… I’m a young woman, I’m learning who I am and, it’s REALLY FREAKING HARD,” the blonde beauty continued. “It’s hard finding who you are, but what’s even harder is being picked apart and compared to other women while trying to do that. There are days that I’m simply broken because of it.”

The fashion star concluded her message by encouraging women to help “lift each other up” and take pride in their perceived flaws.

“So this year I’m gonna do my very best to just be ME and be confident with who I am,” she added. “Cause I am enough, and I’m loved, and you are enough and you’re loved.”

Hailey Baldwin: ‘Vampire facials really work’

Hailey Baldwin is adamant that so-called vampire facials actually work.

Vampire facials, technically referred to as a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, involves a small amount of a client’s blood being extracted and then injected into the face to rejuvenate the skin, with the beauty treatment first popularised by reality star Kim Kardashian.

Hailey has given the scary-sounding facial a whirl and is certain that they make a difference to her complexion, especially when she is busy with modelling gigs.

“I use (Dr. Barbara Sturm’s) custom blood moisturiser and some of her serums, like her Glow Drops,” she told The New York Times. “Essentially, they make you glowy, but they also give you this really nice natural lift. I’ve also done the PRP facials with her. I’ve found that they maintain my skin really well.”

Hailey explained that she stumbled across Dr. Barbara’s products when she was working with a make-up artist at Paris Fashion Week and was really impressed by the results. She also uses Shiseido Benefiance Masks to keep her skin hydrated when travelling, uses coconut oil to remove her cosmetics and washes her face with Dr. Christie Kidd’s Facial Cleanser.

And though she wears very little make-up when off-duty, or spending time with her new husband Justin Bieber, as a BareMinerals brand ambassador she will dust on a few of the beauty brand’s products on before heading out for a natural look.

“I like products that are good for my skin. I use a little bit of concealer, mascara and then Complexion Rescue by BarePro Glow. It’s like a liquid blush and highlighter in one,” the 22-year-old smiled.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley urges beauty lovers to give powder foundation a try

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was “pleasantly surprised” by the effectiveness of a powder foundation formula.

The supermodel knows her stuff when it comes to beauty, even going so far as to launch her own beauty platform Rose Inc. earlier this year (18). She is also one of the newest global ambassadors for mineral-based make-up brand bareMinerals, and insisted that the brand’s famous Original Foundation is always in her make-up bag.

“At first I was a bit apprehensive about using powder as a foundation. Like, how is that going to look on my skin, is it gonna look cakey? Am I gonna look dry? Is it really going to give me coverage?” she reflected in an interview with Marie Claire U.K. “But I’m so pleasantly surprised by the coverage, how quick and easy it is to use and how glowy I look; surprisingly it doesn’t make you look powdered.”

Rosie also likes to carry a face mist in order to refresh her complexion throughout the day, as well as a lip balm to keep her pout plumped.

Being a skincare junkie, the 31-year-old recommends bareMinerals Mineral Cleansing Water for make-up removal, but if she could only grab one beauty product while fleeing her burning house, she’d opt for something equally fiery.

“Oh, a timeless red lipstick or something,” Rosie smiled.

Letitia Wright constantly takes beauty inspiration from Naomie Harris.

The Black Panther star has been inspiring women everywhere with her fun but fresh make-up looks since she found fame in 2015. However, she has now confessed that she often namechecks the Moonlight actress when she’s getting ready for a big event.

“Naomie Harris. I always say her name but it’s the truth!” she gushed in an interview with Elle U.K. “She has a great track record of looking fabulous – her make-up is always flawless and glowing and true to herself. Whenever I’m in the make-up chair, I always reference her, I’m like, ‘Hey, can you make me glowed up like that?’ I just want to be her forever.”

Letitia’s own beauty prowess landed her a gig as a bareMinerals ambassador earlier this year (18), and she’s particularly a fan of the brand’s “super dope” loose foundation.

And though she’s happy to play around with different products today, she used to be reluctant to wear make-up.

“I never really liked make-up to begin with, I just thought it was a big hassle,” the 25-year-old shrugged. “But then I started to going to events and having make-up artists do it for me and I got into it. When you have your make-up done really well and it doesn’t look like the wrong colour or tone, or just not me, then I feel confident in it and I can just roll with it.”

The British star also believes it’s incredibly important to have a diverse range of faces representing the beauty industry.

“It’s important to see yourself reflected in the media and what’s going on in our society, so working with a beauty brand that shows women of different ethnicities and backgrounds is really refreshing,” she smiled.
