    "I lightly mist my Flawless Application Face Brush with mineral water and then Swirl, Tap, Buff® as usual. My skin tends to the dry side and this method leaves a smooth, dewy look." — Michelle B.

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.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 502 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Please Add More Colors!!! I absolutely love the formula of this foundation but PLEASE come out with more colors!! I usually wear Fairly Light (which is too light for me). I have a neutral undertone and have tried the Medium Beige color but it is way too dark for me! I wish that there was a color for light to medium skin tones with a neutral undertone. 16/05/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is better than the best! I started using Bare Minerals years ago and I love the new color Golden Tan. I was using Medium Tan and Tan depending on the time of year - because neither fit me year round. That being said, when I walked into the store and was color matched with Golden Tan, I was more than thrilled! Thanks for such a great product! 01/05/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love love love This product... My gosh. You need this in your life. I absolutely hate liquid foundations, all of them seem to make my face super oily and patchy, even though my skin is not oily at all. They also feel so heavy on your face and I hate that cakey look. I was going and spending 45 plus dollars trying to find a good foundation that didn't look super cakey but still had enough coverage and someone recommended this to me. I never even thought of buying this foundation because it was powder but I thought why not and gave it a try. This stuff is my favorite seriously! It makes my skin look so beautiful and natural and covers up what it needs to cover. It doesn't look cakey. It looks like my skin but better which I love! 23/04/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Been using this product for years I've used the Original foundation in the lightest shade they make for well over 10 years for my very fair skin. It's the only foundation I'll even use anymore. I can't stand the cakey feeling of liquid and cream foundations that are never fair enough for my skin any way. Especially when my skin is extra sensitive, like when I've over exfoliated or I'm breaking out, this foundation has always been very gentle. I think it has great coverage for the cost. 19/04/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this product I have loved bare minerals powder foundation for years. I hesitated to try it until a dermatologist recommended it. It's been over 9 years and I won't use anything else. My skin looks great, I get complimented often, and my break outs are rare. I appreciate that it looks natural on my skin and I can vary how much coverage I think I need. I also love that the days of a makeup line along my chin line are long gone. I also use all of the foundation and makeup products on my 11-year-old daughter when she performs on stage. Her skin looks perfect and never causes any sensitivity issues, which we both appreciate! 09/04/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really great foundation!! I am back to using Baremineralss after 10+ year hiatus. I am in my mid-40s & while I have combination skin. This covers very well, is creamy & does not age me at all. Love it! If I am experiencing a some troublesome oily spots, I put a little matte version on top of this. Happy with this product. 09/04/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Foundation well what can i say i have been using bare minerals since 2008 and let me say this is the Best foundation for you skin. I have tried other products and notice my skin would breakout. when i would use bar minerals i've never had a breakout or skin problems, so when they say its good for your skin and dermatologist recommend it i see why. I will never use no other foundation unless its bare minerals. This foundation gives great, Natural coverage makes your skin look luminous and healthy, no one will ever know you have it on, And a little goes a long way. So if your looking for something that will give you that natural and wont make you breakout then this is the foundation for you. 07/04/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The BEST Foundation I have ever used! I am in love with this foundation, and have been for the past few years. It makes my skin look amazing. It evens all my tones out and brightens my face! Never have had a problem with making my face look too oily or dry.. I Highly recommend this foundation. 02/04/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nothing compares to bare minerals I have not long been using bare minerals make up for long yet and don't often leave product reviews but in this case i just had to do a review only, ive been using it now for 6 months since my friend intrduced me to it and since then i have not looked back. The first time I used this product I noticed how comfortable it felt on my skin and how finished and polished it made me look. It lasted for a long time and it was easy to remove. I have yet to find another product that I like more than this. Nothing has come close. You can choose how much coverage you would like by layering up the foundation and using different bare minerals brushes! It gives a very natural feel and still looks great at the end of the day still giving a flawless finish. Before switching to Bare Minerals, I had never found a foundation that suited my extremely fair skin. 02/04/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMAZING FOUNDATION!!! I am a huge fan of Complexion Rescue but wanted something I could add to it on days I wanted a little more coverage. I don't know why I waited so long to try the Original Foundation but now that I finally did, I cannot believe how fantastic my skin looks!!! I am blown away by the coverage and the glow my skin has and all the while it looks so natural! I am 62 with a few fine lines but not many thanks to years of sunscreen. Neither of these makeup's settle into the fine lines I do have. I was a Clinique fan for years and then tried some of the other department store and drugstore brands as well. I wanted to go with a healthier brand without chemicals and additives like BareMinerals. I am so glad I did and have never looked back. I can't say enough about their new skin care line and their make up. I can't wait to see what new products they come up with in the future! I am one happy customer:) 31/03/2016

I was shade matched for the original foundation a couple of years ago and was a Medium Tan. The colour used to be perfect on me but I've notice in the last couple of months that my foundation has begun to look ashy. Have the shades changed or am I doing something wrong?

Answers

Answer: 
Sometimes your skin tone may change due to climate, or just general raging. My skin was always very pink undertones, but now I am very yellow. If your shade is looking to ashy, try and see if you could be matched again, or maybe choose a foundation shade that is slightly more warmed toned.

Answers

Answer: 
You can keep it until its used! I have had mine for several years, and depends on how my skin is behaving (acne) depends how often, or which bare minerals foundation I use. If you are worried about using to much foundation, or it running out too quickly, then try the READY foundation, as it is in the compact so you get less fall out from the packaging.

My mum tried bare minerals and she was 42 at the time and she felt it sat upon her skin and aged her however I think it is a personal choice! If you go into a bare minerals store they will be able to try the foundation on your face and you can test it for yourself!

Answer: 
In my opinion you need the right brush, I tried with one and it did emphasize my wrinkles and flaky skin, but then I tried the precision face brush and it looks amazing. I would maybe go to a retailer and ask to try it so you can see though as im not sure one brush fits all!

Answer: 
Definitely not, in my opinion. I'm 64 and have dry skin, and find the BM foundation just wonderful. It might take a while to master the technique, buffing with a brush, but a store rep would be very pleased to demonstrate. If you haven't already done so, I'd say - go for it!

Answer: 
Absolutely, all our Foundations are suitable for all skin-types. If you are concerned about dry skin we would recommend moisturising and using our Prime Time Foundation Primer prior to applying our bareMinerals Foundation. This will help to smooth over any dry patches and give you perfect foundation application. Also our bareMinerals READY SPF 20 Foundation is great for those with dry skin as the formula is really hydrating. Hope this helps.

Answers

Answer: 
I was also introduced to bare minerals through the starter kit and the actual foundation in the starter kit is much smaller than what the foundation would be if you bought it in store. If buying the foundation itself and not in a kit, it lasts me so much more around 6 months! I bought one end of June and by end of December i had to buy a new one.

Answer: 
I'm also a student so I can easily tell you it lasts quite a while! I got my starter kit almost two years ago now and its just running out. Depending on how often you use it, it should still last you a long time. I bought the larger 'original' foundation for myself (with my student loan!) and I can guarantee that it will last a while.

We can't give you a guaranteed answer unfortunately as it all depends on how much you use, but on average we would advise a standard pot of our bareMinerals Foundation would last about 3-4 months.

Answer: 
It is very difficult to shade match online. If your skin tone is more yellow when tanned then we would recommend trying the shade Light. However if your skin goes a pink more of a pink tone when tanned then we would recommend trying out Fairly Medium.

Dear Sir/Madam,
I bought the Golden deep N50 (compact foundation). This colour was perfect for me. Unfortunately I accidently dropped it all on the floor. I went in store to get a replacement and was given a colour that was too yellow in tone for my complexion - R510. Can you please tell me what this colour is now called ? And whether I need to get the cool or golden range.

If possible, I think it would help a lot of your customers if a chart of the original compact foundation colours and their correlating replacements were posted online. Thanks.

Answers

Answer: 
Our bareMinerals READY SPF20 Foundation in Golden Deep was renamed to shade R510. If you still find this too yellow for your complexion we would recommend trying out R530. It may be best to pop into one of counters for another shade match so you can be sure you’re getting the right shade for your skin tone. The shades for our bareMinerals READY SPF20 Foundation never changed, only the names of them did. On our bareMinerals READY SPF 20 Information Page we do have a comparison guide to help you out between Original SPF15 Foundation shades & bareMinerals READY SPF20 Foundation shades: http://bit.ly/19tLxTQ

Answers

Answer: 
It is really difficult to shade match online. Our READY SPF20 Foundation tends to be slightly lighter than our Original SPF15 Foundation, so even though R210 may be little too light, Medium in our Original Foundation may be the right shade. If you can, try to pop into your local bareMinerals Counter to get shade matched by one of our Beauty Ambassadors. If this isn't an option we would recommend trying our Medium if you have a slight pinky tone to your skin, and Medium Beige if you have a neutral skintone.

I usually use medium tan during the summer months but if that comes up too dark for you mix a little of your medium beige and medium tan together to give you a more customized colour which you can tweak to your skin tone :)

Answer: 
It is really difficult to shade match online, as your skin-tone may slightly change when you have a tan. Your Medium Beige has neutral undertones, and if you feel that with a tan you still have neutral undertones, we would recommend trying the shade Tan. You can always pop into your local bareMinerals Counter to get shade matched by one of our Beauty Ambassadors.
