Q & A

bareMinerals READY SPF20 Foundation - null 4.1 5 347 347
Effortless Beauty I used to suffer from mild acne and was using the 'BE Original Foundation' and although it was a blessing that I managed to stumble upon it, it was very time consuming trying to cover all my imperfections. When I heard BE had come out with a new compact foundation I immediately had a look online, though there were not as many positive reviews as I thought. My biggest concern was: is this foundation going to be as light and breathable as the Original Foundation? Well I went to a local store and tried it on and WOW! 2 effortless minutes to flawless skin! And just for the record it was just as light and breathable as the Original Foundation AND takes less then half the time to apply! A truly AMAZING product! 12/06/2013
My favorite! I've tried many other foundation powders but keep coming back to Ready. It's the perfect coverage for day or night. Amazing! 24/03/2015
Amazing My name is Alfanette, I am 52 years old and I have used MAC for over 12 years. But I recently found that MAC has many chemicals. I searched for months for a new line I can use for my skin. Bare MInerals is AMAZING. It feels light, the coverage is great and no chemicals. WIN-WIN. I will be a Bare MInerals partner for years to come. A very Happy customer. 23/03/2015
Amazing Coverage! I started using bare minerals in January. I went into the store because I'm not a girly girl I never wore make up but here lately I've wanted to be more girly I tried a few liquid foundations but I wasn't happy I have acne scars and although this doesn't completely cover them I am very pleased with the coverage I feel 100% more confident than I ever have! 21/03/2015
Flawless skin all day! I apply my makeup at 7:00 am and reluctantly remove it after a days work at 10:00 pm. This product gives me flawless skin all day, I have even had compliments on how clear my skin is on days I know I have had a break out. I am never using anything else. 20/03/2015
love this product. I used bare minerals 10 years ago and left. (Not sure why). But I am obsessed with all bare minerals. It is all I use. Anyway this is my holy grail everyday foundation and I love it. If you don't have this get it today. Highly recommended. 12/03/2015
Best Foundation Ever! I've never met a foundation that 100% pleased me until I finally tried Bare Minerals Matte pressed powder foundation. I have to apply full coverage but even so - it is so lightweight and silky that I forget I'm wearing makeup! I have a lot of freckles and spots I don't like and this makeup feels sheer, yet it hides most of those flaws. I honestly can't imagine that I'll ever change foundations again. I was disappointed that I went to Sephora and they didn't have the pressed powder foundation in Medium Cool. I was told Bare Minerals stopped producing them due to low sales - everyone wants the loose powder. Well, actually, that's wrong. I'm not everyone. I much prefer the pressed powder and hope it will remain available! 07/03/2015
ABSOLUTELY PERFECT This foundation gives my skin such a goregous natural glow. I always like to have a full coverage and it definitely gives me that! I love how you can build the foundation up without it making you look orange. The bush that was recommended to have with it is also amazing, gives me such a flawless look. It feels so light on my face it never feels like I have make up on, and plus takes maximum of 5 minutes to apply depends on the coverage I am after! 27/02/2015
Great coverage and holds moisture. I loved the bare minerals original but as I have aged over the last few years my skin has become very dry with more discoloration. I switched to the Ready Foundation to get more coverage and because it was marketed as more moisturizing. Learning the application technique was a little tricky for me. I learned that you must use the Precision Face Brush and pat the foundation all over before smoothing in long strokes to get the best coverage and most flawless look. I have eczema and this definitely helps keep moisture in my sensitive skin and it gives my skin a more youthful appearance. 23/02/2015
I love it!! This product is amazing. I recently bought this at Ulta and I've never boughten powder before until I bought this product. Literally amazing, although its a bit smelly, yet the powder itsself is absolutly incrediable!! 16/02/2015

I found I had this problem on my forehead. I think for me it was because I was using a full brush of foundation straight on to my forehead. I found it better if I loaded the brush and started first of all on my cheeks and then go to other areas like forehead, chin and nose once you've already worked some of the product off of the brush.

I'm 47 & can assure you that it doesn't settle in any fine lines. I do have a tip to minimise any 'pore settling' which can happen around the nose area; leave that area until last & only use the brush when you've buffed everywhere else on your face & it's 'empty'. That way you won't over-apply. Also use a primer but don't apply any foundation until it's completely absorbed. Hope that helps!

Hi Kentlady, yes I have the same skin-type and it works well for me. It gives smooth even coverage and keeps the skin looking shine -free. It minimises the look of the pores and does not crack.

A: 
Our bareMinerals READY SPF20 Foundation is great for all skin types and sounds like it would be great for your skin. The foundation is really hydrating for those dry areas, but because it is made with minerals it will help balance out any oily areas and won't block your pores.
If you are having trouble with how your foundation is sitting you may want to try it with our Prime Time Foundation Primer, which will prep your skin perfectly for a flawless foundation application.

I'm sure they still do this colour. If you have the tub maybe take it down to BM and see what they say? If it has been discontinued they I'm sure they will be able to match a similar colour to you. Hope that helps.

The shade names for our bareMinerals READY SPF20 Foundation have changed since our initial launch. If you bought the shade Medium Beige, this would now be shade R250.

A: 
It is very difficult to tell what shade you will be in bareMinerals READY SPF20 Foundation without a shade match as the shades are so different from our loose foundation formulas. Our comparison guide (http://bit.ly/bMcomparison) indicated you could be either R450, R470 or R530. We do suggest that you pop into your local bareMinerals counter to get properly shade matched to ensure you get the right shade.
