Applying the Makeup is Easy

  • Swirl, Tap, Buff

  • 1. Swirl
    a small amount of bareMinerals into the lid with the Flawless Application Brush (for lighter coverage) or the Full Coverage Kabuki Brush (for more coverage) until the bareMinerals are tucked into the bristles.

    2. Tap
    off excess. bareMinerals should not be visible on the outside of the brush.

    3. Buff
    bareMinerals onto the skin in a swirling, circular motion, starting on the outside of your face near your cheekbones. Then, buff around your face, working your way to the cheeks, forehead, and nose. Buff until you're satisfied with the coverage. Less is more when applying bareMinerals.

Q & A

MATTE SPF 15 Foundation - null is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 260.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection Thank you for expanding your color line. I wear the new shade fair ivory which is a perfect match. I use the beautiful finish brush and it's perfection. After my first sheer coat I am able to zero in on areas that need more coverage very quickly. I'm 57 with acnegenic skin and this blurs my scars and pores. This never breaks me out but also doesn't dry out my skin or settle into lines. Holy grail status for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this foundation! I have NEVER liked wearing foundation but I gave this one a try and I absolutely love it! It makes my skin feel great and even helped my acne clear. Seriously my acne has been better since wearing foundation.. I would've never believed it if I hadn't tried it myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Foundation I've finally found the perfect foundation. It is just the right amount of coverage. It evens out my skin tone (I have a yellow undertones but tend to have rosier cheeks) yet it is somewhat sheer and doesn't look heavy. The finish is matte, which in my experience happens to make it look a bit more pigmented as compared to the original foundation so I'd recommend dropping down a shade to compensate. I'd also recommend using a primer under this, as I accidentally put it on once after I forgot primer and it clustered around my pores. This foundation also has SPF which is an extra bonus, as it protects your beautiful skin underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Foundation. The Foundation itself is fantastic. I've been using it for 5 years now. My only complaint is that I wish they would make the container such that I could unscrew / open it to get the last 3-4 applications out. I'm shaking it upside down for an hour to try to get it all out, because it's not cheap. But the Pros outweigh the cons. I LOVE LOVE that it doesn't feel or look like I'm wearing makeup. It lasts all day and it blends so well. I use a large brush to apply it with. When I first was being taught how to use it by one employee she used some type of sponge to apply it. I returned and explained how I liked it but the application method was making it way too thick. The next consultant taught me to apply a small amount to a brush and tap it off before applying. That is the best trick. Works perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Foundation!! I have been using this foundation for about 4 to 5 years now and I cannot express how much I love it!! I Love how this foundation is so easy to use and I find it is good for all ages. I have tried so many different kinds of foundation but I always end up back with this Matte powder. I absolutely love how this foundation fills on your face, rather other products can make your face feel like the foundation is caked on. This foundation fills like you don't have anything on and makes your skin feel and look great!!! I have would definitely recommend this to a friend and will be most definitely be repurchasing this product every time I run out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great foundation I used this foundation a couple years ago because I felt I had oily skin. I got compliments on my skin/makeup when I wore this. I used the BareSkin for a bit by itself and am now layering the two. Even together my face is not caked on or unnatural-looking.

What I'd the best foundation for very greasy t-zone with large pores?

I went to a store to have a BM makeover yesterday and told the lady that my main concern was hiding my large pores and controlling the shine I get on my nose and chin ( I have to power ever hour or so during the day I told her ) she recommended the original foundation which I bought in the starter kit, but since coming on here I think the matte foundation would have been ideal for me and I'm surprised she didn't recommend this.
Asked by: Jowat
I have large blemishes or breakouts because of my hormones I find the matte foundation is great for coverage and my oily t zone and I use complex rescue underneath

What colour should I use in summer when I am tanned?

If I have Fairly Light for winter skin and tan easily - what colour should I order for summer? Is Tan too dark? Thanks :)
Asked by: Anonymous
No one can answer this but you! Personally I would keep your foundation and buy a bronzer as well - this way you can build up the tan easily on your skin and make sure it's right for you. Remember: it's far easier to make your skin look darker than it is to make it look paler!
