bareMinerals READY SPF20 Foundation - null 4.1 5 327 327
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
Love it! I'm loving this more and more. I wasn't so sure at first because I was using too much product. All it takes is one tap and then long swipes across my face with the precision face brush. I do one layer like that, repeating the one tap at a time until my face is covered, then I go back with the regular face brush and add a little just to the spots that need it. I have very fair skin and Medium R210 is perfect for me. (I'm 53 with sensitive, dryish skin.) I'm so happy I gave this a try! 08/10/2014
Great for Touch Ups! I bought this product hoping to have my favorite foundation more readily available to me at work, since I work anywhere from 8 to 10 hour shifts. And it is a high-pace environment, so sweat happens. The product is small enough to fit in my small hand-purse (it is literally a hand-purse), and it works great for the touch ups I need to do. I bought BM travel-size face brush, and I use it with the READY foundation. However, the only complaint is I feel like a lose a lot of product due to the nature of the brush. I wish I had a better applicator for READY foundation. Other than that though, the coverage is great and portable for sure! 01/10/2014
Pls don't ever discontinue or change this product! Let me first start by saying that I hope the READY Foundation never gets discontinued or changed. This is a quality product that has changed my view of foundation. ~THE FEEL OF THIS PRODUCT..... When I apply this foundation it feels like I have nothing on my face. I often times forget I'm wearing it because it feels like my natural skin. This is something I love as I am not a big foundation wearer. My husband always tells me he likes me without foundation but when I wear READY bare minerals foundation he told me he likes it equally as well as my bare face look... That makes me happy.. :) ~MY SKINS RESPONSE TO THIS FOUNDATION..... I have dry, sensitive skin that likes to crack and get dry blotches when I wear any foundation. It also is very prone to breakouts and bumps when I use foundation. I have tried countless foundations and I've always been bitterly disappointed with my skins response to them... I.e. breakouts and dry cracked skin... I have been using bare minerals READY foundation for about a month now and I can wholeheartedly and honestly say my skin has actually IMPROVED since wearing it. I have the clearest skin that I've had in years and my skin has a subtle glow that I am loving. So if I decide not the wear foundation on some days I'm proud to show my healthy skin ~APPLICATION AND PACKAGING..... Applying this product is simple in my opinion. I use a sigma f80 flat top kabuki brush... As long as you have a dense flat top brush you can get a beautiful finish. Be light handed when dipping into the product. Place brush on product and very lightly push(don't swirl!!!!) then apply to 1section of your face at a time in long soft strokes again not swirling your brush on your face either. Get more product in same manner as previously stated. Do this in layers until you build up to the coverage you desire. It's quick and surprisingly easy. Blends beautifully and only takes a few minutes. Packaging is beautiful and sleek. Easy to carry and non-messy. ~OVERALL SUMMARY... Great product. I will continue to purchase as long as they don't discontinue it or change it. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Definitely get color matched as the colors aren't the same as their other foundations. My holy grail foundation because it doesn't cause me ANY breakouts, looks airbrushed and flawless, light and natural felling, gives me a little boost of confidence, and actually improves my natural skin. Hope this is helpful!!:) 28/09/2014
Amazing results I wanted to overhaul my make up bag and bought loads of BareMinerals products after a makeover at my nearest Debenhams. This foundation is incredible! It makes me skin look so naturally flawless; it hides blemishes, evens out my redness and creates a naturally beautiful looking base for the rest of my make up. I'd long ago given up on finding a foundation that would work for me but at long last I've found one. My advice (it's taken a while for me to figure this out) is that the more you buff it in to the skin the longer it lasts. I build it up in thin layers and buff really well (I almost feel I'll buff it off) and it builds better coverage and lasts longer. 23/09/2014
Great foundation! At first I was sceptical about using a compact powder as a foundation, purely because I like to have full coverage and was worried it wouldn't cover very well. I was extremely pleased with the result and have never gone back! I cant imagine using a different foundation now and I don't feel like I'm wearing any make up its great! The coverage is fantastic and cannot recommended it enough, really glad I started using it as I have noticed my skin has become so much better. Thanks! 22/09/2014
I love this stuff! I am tempted to buy this stuff in bulk because Im so scared they'll discontinue it! I love love love my Ready makeup! I've used the original Bare Minerals before, but I gave up on it because it got messy and the amount I'd see on the counter made me think half of it was going down the drain, even though the coverage was flawless! Fast forward 2-3 years later. After using acne-assisting liquid makeup and still suffering from breakouts and even getting really expensive specialty makeup for acne that exacerbated the problem worse than over the counter stuff (not to mention no matter what shade I picked you could always tell I was wearing makeup!), I decided to try one last investment. I chose Ready makeup because it promised full coverage with ease of application, and that it is! You just do that little easy tap-tap and voila! Beautiful coverage, no make-up lines! And I literally don't have to wash my face before bed (in case I forget or I'm so exhausted I can't pry myself out of bed) and I wake up and my sensitive face has no blemishes and no yuck makeup transfer everywhere! AND! It's so much less messy than liquid foundation! You don't get your hands all gunky as you start your day! I will say that I like to think I'm fair skinned, but the light neutral version (R170), while blending in flawlessly, looks a little too light for my skin per my husband, even though I tried my best to shade match via the Internet. I ordered the medium neutral version last night (r250) so I'll try that out. If worse comes to worse, I can always blend. But I'm content with what I have and a bronzer so we'll see! The precision face brush is a must have with this product. It's expensive, but an investment (you'll never have to buy it again)! And the videos that show you how to use this product are short and informational. Very helpful! I'm SO excited. Im spending about twice as much as I was on drug store brands (and actually less than department store brands),but the pay off has been such a blessing. Worth every penny. Because I can't tell you how much I've spent on different foundations, acne cleansers, etc just to not use them. This product works GREAT over a normal moisturizer after dried. If you like eye shadow, it does not show up as well as it does on a liquid base (which is like its own primer), so a good idea would be to get the eyeshadow primer. Amazing, skin-nurturing, easily portable, non-messy beauty! Ohhhh I love this stuff! GREAT JOB BARE MINERALS! You're worth ALL the hype! Please don't stop making my makeup! 18/09/2014
Be flawless in lesss than 5 minutes! I have tried almost every brand from high end prices to high street foundations looking for something that is natural looking on my pale skin! This product does everything I have ever wanted a foundation to do..and more! It's so easy to apply and lasts ages even though I use it everyday, I personally use the Handy Buki brush press it into the solid powder and it literally glides on, no need for harsh buffing or precision just big strokes around your face. Takes less than 5 minutes, Doesn't look cakey atall and leaves no nasty line from your chin to neck! Oh and the best part is it covers any blemishes without clogging them up with any harmful ingredients, in fact they say you can even sleep in this stuff! If you don't have this in your make-up bag you're missing out! I can't live a day without it! 16/09/2014
Loove it! I have been using BM original loose formula for 10 years now but I feel like I need more coverage and was tired of the messy powder.. I tried the new bareskin liquid and it was a fail , to greasy and light coverage, I felt like it never set :( I wear shade med-biege in the loose BM , I ordered" Med-tan R3310" and it was an okay color match, to light--- but I really liked the coverage with pressed powder!! It really covered any red areas and the hyper-pigmentation !!I don't need to wear concealer!! I can work out and sweat and my make up is still on! The compact lasted only 5 weeks-- bummer because it so expensive! Next time around I ordered a shade darker " Golden Tan R330" and it a perfect match!! YAY!!! I really love the pressed powder it just cost more and I run out faster versus BM powder.. 10/09/2014
expected a lot more from BE I guess first of all I cannot understand why the shades of Ready don't match the she shades of the original foundation. Makes it impossible to purchase online, and not everyone is fortunate enough to live near a boutique to be color matched. Regardless, I have found the Ready to be very cakey. It is difficult to apply a light layer, so by the time I'm done my face looks heavy and thick with make. What I've always liked about BE is the natural look, but this in now way provides that. Very disappointed. Plus based on online comments and suggestions, not only do you end up with an expensive product that does not work, but you get fooled into thinking it will work if use the right brush, so there's another chunk of change spent without any better result. I hope BE will take all of reviews into consideration and really work on improving this product. The tap swirl and buff technique is so cumbersome. Having a Ready foundation would be so convenient, if only it worked. 27/08/2014

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.

A: 
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.

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.

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.
