Bare Escentuals – Why Work For Us?


Beauty is a movement.

Pretty attracts us, but beauty changes us. That’s why Bare Escentuals is founded on our belief in beautiful, healthy-looking skin and that all women can achieve it. Every bareMinerals® product is designed to bring out your true beauty using only the finest quality ingredients.  

When a woman feels her best, her confidence radiates. Her smile makes people smile. Her laugh makes people laugh. Her beauty is contagious. It has transformative power. Pretty can turn heads, but beauty can change the whole world. 

Join us. Be a Force of Beauty.™ Because when you put pretty into action, there’s no limit to what you can do.



What is a Force of Beauty? 

We believe that when you feel truly beautiful, you wield enormous confidence, and you have the potential to change a moment, ignite a conversation and start a new adventure…. 

A Force of Beauty is an energy, a strength, a movement. 

For us, confidence is beautiful. bareMinerals® products are created to make you feel beautiful, inside and out—because we believe that beauty can change the world.



Culture is a beautiful thing.

In the world of beauty, we’ve always been different. We’re from San Francisco, surrounded by artists and innovators who inspire us to think differently, to follow our gut instincts and to pour our heart and soul into everything we do. We create products that no other brand can make and we connect with women in ways that no other brand would dare.

For over 35 years, we’ve built a community of strong, passionate women who have become customers–but more importantly– our lifelong friends. We create meaningful products that are good for you because we’re obsessed with feeling good. We introduce our brand in ways that are also innovative—by inspiring real human connections.

We’ve never been content with just making women look pretty. We want them to feel beautiful. We exist to make a positive difference in women’s lives.
