Our History

Naked Minerals® is the result of two extraordinary women (Kari and Marlene) and their love of helping others feel beautiful.

Kari is a licensed master esthetician and certified makeup artist. Her passion for beauty began at a young age and created a desire to teach others about being beautiful both inside and out. In addition to her work as an esthetician, she has traveled extensively as a national educator for both skin care and makeup.

Marlene is also a certified esthetician and professional makeup artist, as well as being an image consultant. She has done makeup professionally in both the film and print industries and also has a strong passion for teaching.

Together, they founded a school for the study of esthetics and cosmetics, dedicated to “personal and professional image education and inspiration.” While working together, they developed an affinity for mineral-based makeups, but were disappointed with the number of unnecessary fillers and additives they contained as an artificial means to extend their use-life.

They longed for a mineral makeup that was truly pure and offered complete weightless coverage without any added chemicals, colorants, fillers or binders. Unable to satisfy their professional requirements in the marketplace they set out to create it.

Kari and Marlene spent countless hours formulating their product line, going through batch after batch after batch until they found the perfect blend of ingredients, carefully establishing just the right process to create a universal makeup line of the highest quality that is good for your skin and works with every skin type and complexion.

Naked Minerals® is the outcome of all their dedication and hard work and the fulfillment of their dream to make the world a better place, one beautiful person at a time.
