Colour: Medium Beige
Description: For medium skin with neutral undertones

Our ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation gives you all the flawless coverage you want with a naturally luminous finish that won't clump or cake. It's proven to improve the appearance of your skin over time. The creamy minerals diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles without drying out your skin. Its silky, soft texture looks like a powder, but feels like a cream and buffs on beautifully. Made with only the purest, highest quality ingredients.

We love to use our Foundation with our Full Flawless Application Face Brush or our Handy Buki Brush.

  • BEliever Tip!

    "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.

ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation - null 4.7 5 243 243
Get shade matched+use the right brush+watch the application instruction video=Amazing! I LOVE this foundation! I was skeptical for years and wish I had tried it before. It did take a little trouble-shooting to make sure I was applying properly and had the right brush. I thought that the Matte formula would be best for me because I have such oily skin and struggle with shine but after trying Matte and Ready, I came back to this and realized it was the perfect fit, I just needed the right shade. I don't have any problems with oiliness or shine with it. I need full-coverage so I use the full coverage kabuki brush and love the results. This foundation is wonderful! Take the time to make sure you have the right shade, brush, formula and learn to put it on properly and it will be worth the time invested! So happy, wish I had been using this all along! 09/12/2014
Used it for years This is one of the best makeups on the market, especially at this price point. I am an older woman with sun damage and wrinkles. While nothing makes these go away, this offers awesome coverage and does not settle into the wrinkles as long as i use a good moisturizer first. i firmly believe that it is good for my skin and i appreciate the built in natural (NO chemicals) sunscreen. Whenever a friend tries it at my urging, she feels the same way. You do have to learn to use it, but if you just follow the directions you'll be a pro in no time. Dip, swirl, tap and blend, blend blend! I love it 28/11/2014
Incredible! Recently I began to have trouble with blemishes on my skin. My usual makeup simply wasn't concealing or helping solve the issue, so I decided to upgrade. I was unsure about the price of this product, but after it was applied in store I was absolutely sold! The coverage was amazing, and it barely felt like I was wearing makeup at all. The best part is that after a few weeks of using this foundation, my blemishes have cleared up a little and my skin feels great! Totally worth the money, and will be buying again. 23/10/2014
ADDICTED I have very dry skin so for the past 30 years have always been drawn to rich moisturising foundation, no more, this is the most amazing foundation ever it gives me a healthy glow, it doesn't sit in all my 'laughter lines' and although I have only been using it for a couple of weeks the complimentary comments I have had have to be because of this product. I have recommended it to all my friends and family and will now never use anything else. The only problem is that I want to replace all my makeup and skin care with Bare Minerals products! 21/10/2014
This Makeup is great I have others who have used this product and they loved it and recommend it to me The products I have tried of what you are offering is just right for my skin type. and It doesn't break me out like so many others do 20/10/2014
Beautiful coverage I've tried tons of mineral, liquid, and cream foundations. This is BY FAR the BEST one out there. My skin cleared up after I switched over to bareMinerals. I'm so happy with the product and I'll never go back to another brand. As some of the other reviewers have said, one container lasts for about 6 months and I wear my makeup every single day. 08/10/2014
I don't use anything else This is the first foundation I used and I've always used and supported bareMinerals ever since I saw them on QVC. It lasts FOREVER, so you get your money's worth. You'll love it. 04/10/2014
Dedicated to the Foundation Broad Spectrum I have been using this foundation for about 5 years. I love it! I use it almost every day, and a little goes a long way, so one container typically lasts me 6 months to 1 year. I love this is stuff! It covers all my blemishes and gives me a radiant look. I get consistent compliments on my "radiant" skin whenever I wear it. I never buy a different foundation (with the exception when I want to wear a liquid one). It is THAT good that you won't need to make the change. I have combo skin, so my pores are larger on my nose especially, but this does the trick in hiding them perfectly. This product never breaks me out either! LOVE LOVE LOVE BM's signature item. Dedicated for five years, and going to keep on buying! 03/10/2014
AMAZING Tried this product after going through numerous foundations and never finding the best for my skin and one that stays on through out the day. After trying this over a year ago I will never switch foundations again it is truly amazing and you will not regret trying this out!! 22/09/2014
Original SPF Foundation I absolutely love this foundation! It gives me a lovely face complexion along with a natural, flawless face. I would definitely recommend this product to a friend, in fact I already have! Thank you bareMinerals! 20/09/2014

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!

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.

I love this foundation and got brought the starter kit for Christmas but as I am a student with a low income I wondered how long the foundation has been lasting people as I wouldn't be able to go out and just buy it again when it's gone, I'd have to put some money away?

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.

A: 
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. You could always check out our online Foundation Shade Finder to help you decide: http://bit.ly/12Njp5g

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.

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

A: 
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.

Hi,
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 :)

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.

A: 
It has not been scientifically proven that SPF in make-up affects the quality of your skin in photos at all - from my experience it seems to be an urban myth. Moreover, the SPF of Bare Minerals make-up is fairly low and, if working in tandem with a blush or bronzer, should not be an issue in photography. The fine texture of Bare Minerals foundation and it's luminous finish should make it for perfect wedding-day make-up :) Hope this helps!

Our Original and Matte Foundations used with Mineral Veil will give you a naturally flawless look on your wedding day. The SPF in the foundations should not have any negative effect on your wedding photographs. If you were looking for a longer-wearing, fuller coverage you could always try our READY SPF20 Foundation which launches nationwide in March.
