Leslie Blodgett, Creator of bareMinerals, was the recipient of the 2014 WWD Beauty  Visionary of the Year Award. You should know Leslie Blodgett, she’s the Creator of bareMinerals. The award was in recognition of her ability to redefine the norm for the beauty company and how she transformed Bare Escentuals into one of the Beauty Industries biggest success stories to date. Bloggett leads by example with her keen gift of leadership. She was instrumental in spearheading the beauty’s first social brand as well as trailblazing with her gift of direct selling and amazing marketing techniques. Bloggett is responsible for making bare Minerals a global brand and shares a bond with women all over the world.


Blodgett continues to make history as she was the first female recipient of this prestigious award which is truly a testament to her unparalleled vision for the Bare Escentuals brand and the astonishing mark that she has left in the industry with her introduction of the breakthrough brand, bareMinerals, which we are happy to report is now entering its 20-year anniversary. Blodgett was also one of  WWD Beauty Inc’s “Beauty’s Big Ten” for recognition of her astonishing journey and continued success.

On December 11, 2014, Blodgett accepted the award at the annual awards ceremony held in New York City. “I am beyond honored to receive this prestigious award and I am so proud to have devoted my life to this work,” shared Blodgett. “I love this industry. I love what it does for women. I love the people who make it happen: driven people, competitors, innovators who push through barriers and create delightful products, new technology and new ideas that create new realities. At the highest level, this is life-changing work. For the people we serve and also for us.” (

Congratulations Leslie and we wish you continued success!
