Get Started Complexion Kit - null 4.8 5 99 99
acne skin i have oily and acne covered skin and i do love how this foundation looks it gives me an amazing covrage but still looks natural the only thing is it doesnt stay on my skin type, i will apply it at 7:30 and by 12 (when im not even half way through my day) it will start to wear off and look blotchy. I do love the look it gives i just wish it would stay on on my skin type! i do know its not the same for everyones skin type but for mine it just doesnt stay on but it looks amazing when i first put it on which i love! 05/03/2014
Fantasic starter kit So many times I have found a new brand to try and bought everything under the sun just to find out I cant get good coverage and don't need half of it. This kit in fantastic because you get all the brushes as well. I have since bought new brushes and replacements for everything. I have bad skin and I have AHA chemical peals so my skin is sensitive after, I never have any issues with this make up affecting my skin. It does take time to get used to getting good coverage, but I just watched YouTube videos and it helped me so much. 26/02/2014
Bare Minerals Get Started Complexion Kit I have never purchased any Bare Minerals makeup before, so it was my first time. I want to start of with the complexion of my face, then built my way up to buying eyeshadows, blush etc. And I must say the assistance of the worker in the shop, couldn't be anymore helpful. She tested the different shades on my skin to see which one was a perfect match (Olive Under Tone) It is one of the best makeup kit I have ever brought. As I wanted to achieve a more natural look. I will definitely be purchasing Bare Minerals again. Thank you. 17/02/2014
Amazing!!! This kit is amazing! I have combination skin which suffers regular flare-ups. Since using BareMinerals these have occurred less and less. It looks natural, feels light and lasts for ages so it's worth the money. I will definitely continue to use BM when I run out but will probably buy another Get Started kit rather than individual items as it's such good value (I bought the kit mid-November and still have loads left). 06/01/2014
UNBELIEVABLY GOOD! A couple of years ago a friend recommended this product to me because I was in my teen years breaking out all over my cheeks, I'm now 21, she thought it was so good that she even bought me the Get Started Kit. I was so impressed that ever since I first used it, I haven't put it down. I have tried other products and nothing worked so well. Oddly enough, it actually helped diminish the acne...It was love at first touch. 19/02/2014
I love it ! I love everything about these products ! I really like the fact that you get 2 different shades of foundations because you can use the darker one for when you have a little tan and the lighter one for when you don't ! I like also that the brush shampoo is a full size bottle and it works really well ! Very pleased with this product ! 14/02/2014
Excellent I have just started using these products and I'm loving the results.I feel like my skin can breathe,it's so light and covers perfectly.I will definitely be trying different products from Bare Minerals. 22/12/2013
Perfect welcome to Bare Minerals Before I bought this, I knew a few girls who raved about Bare Minerals foundation, so when it came to me needing a new foundation I thought I would try this. I went in and spoke to one of the ladies who showed me how to use everything and what it was for (if you're buying online there was a dvd in the box to help instead :)). All I can say is that it feels so light on your skin and doesnt feel like you've got a thick layer of paint on your face. Whether you want full coverage or just a light veil, this is perfect. Plus the price is fantastic, since I've used it all up, looking at buying everything separately is much more expensive. 19/12/2013
Loved It This product was amazing with my skin. I could not recommend it highly enough. I have chosen this for my wedding make up because of this kit. It covers imperfections evenly without looking 'fake' it has the perfect natural finish and lasts all day. I will not be looking back after trying this... will be at the top of my christmas list.... 19/12/2013
Converted! I recently bought this present for myself alone with the All Night Christmas Kit as a start up to BareMinerals and I have to say I have not been disappointed at all! I have to say I don't really wear makeup in the day or at work so this makeup is perfect for the natural look but on the other hand, I decided to wear more makeup such as the eye makeup for my Christmas Party and I felt so glam and lady-like. I have truly been converted to BareMinerals. Brushes They are so soft and feel amazing on the face. Primer This makes your face feel so soft and keeps everything in place. Foundation Using this as a concealer really works and gives a different texture, using with the brush and buffing on after just looks seamless. Warmth I was a bit sceptical and didn't want to make my face look really dark but I tried it and love it! Put across your T zone and cheeks and you look so healthy. Veil This is just so soft and keeps your make up from drying and getting oily, keep a pot of this in your bag and you can go all day. In The Night Kit The mascara..... AMAZING!!!! Blusher is a nice creamy texture and gives you a nice healthy glow. Eye Makeup - amazing colours especially for the smokey eyed look. 18/12/2013

A: 
If you are concerned about oily skin, we would recommend trying out our Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer. This will really help your makeup to stay in place as it helps to absorb excess oil throughout the day and does not contain any silicone or oil. If you still find after this that the foundation isn't staying put, we would recommend switching over to our MATTE SPF 15 Foundation - if you get a chance, try popping into your local bareMinerals counter where you can try both these products out and really test them to see if they make a difference to your skin.

You can use the foundation as concealer too. I apply the foundation as advised, then use the concealer brush with a little of the foundation to cover up any prone problem areas. I also have red skin areas and suffer from spots, the foundation as a concealer offers excellent coverage.

Hi Rosie. This kit doesn't come with the concealer, but if your not getting the coverage you want with the Foundation, you could try our Redness Remedy. Our Redness Remedy reduces facial redness on contact and over time.

The bareMinerals starter kit offers two shades so that you can use one in winter and one in summer when you might have more sun kissed skin! So I am currently using the medium beige, and will begin to use the medium as my tan fades!

You don't need to apply both foundations. Of course, you can if you want to blend the colours for a perfect match, but I personally use one at a time to match my skin as it changes through the Summer and Winter months. The medium has more of a pink tone to it, and the medium beige is more golden. I find that for me, medium beige is best for summer with a tiny bit of warmth mixed in to give a nice tanned look, and medium is best for winter with warmth just accenting the cheek and collar bones. If you prefer to use both colours to match your skin, I recommend mixing them together in one of the lids before applying. The coverage will be more even and will also save you time.

You don't have to use both together - they just give you two shades in each kit so that you can find your perfect one. I got the light kit and found out that the lighter shade suited me better but I still used the darker shade when I wanted a bit more colour. You can use them together as well though, whatever works best for you!

Hi, you really only need to apply one foundation, have you had your shade checked at a bare minerals counter? Medium beige suits most medium skin tones. To apply perfectly, tap a small amount (less is more!) into the lid, grab your foundation brush (full flawless is one of my faves) swirl it in the lid until it has picked up all of the foundation, you shouldn't be able to see any on the brush. Tap the brush on the side of the lid to remove any excess, then start buffing in a circular motion, starting at the edge of your face and jaw line, working inwards, remember people look more closely at the centre of your face so this is where you should really concentrate on. To ensure you are using the right amount of pressure, buff over your eye area, it shouldn't feel uncomfortable!

Really hope this helps! If you are using two foundations to get the perfect colour match (i do this when i have got a little bit of a tan) then it would be better to mix the foundations together in one lid, rather than applying one then the other.

The more you buff, the better the coverage you get, a good rule of thumb is sing "happy birthday to you..." twice, that is about how long it should take to apply. You can always finish with mineral veil to get a complete airbrushed look.

If she does her make-up twice a day, now, still finding that it doesn't cover well, then I would recomend this product! I myself bought it, just to see whether it was what everyone was telling me, and when used with the Prime Time primer and the Mineral Veil, it generally lasts me all day. I have horses, play netball, badminton and cricket often, and the only time I cover up more is just after a sport :) (The different brushes supplied give a different coverage too!)

I once saw a fantastic video of a lady who suffered with rosacea (reddening of the skin). When bare Minerals was applied to her skin it calmed the redness and blended beautifully to give a full coverage. You may find that you use a lot of concealer at first, and may look a tad strange at this stage, but once you have concealed and start to apply your foundation you'll see that although the product is light you can build it up to give a lovely full coverage. If you're worried about choosing the right colour, pop into a bare Minerals boutique and the staff can show you how to bring out the beauty in your skin.

This provides better, more natural coverage than any other foundation I have ever tried! To be extra sure, I'd recommend using prime time primer before applying the foundation and finishing with mineral veil. Bisque would give even more coverage, used either before or after foundation. However, this foundation is so amazing I'm sure it'd make a massive difference on its own!

A: 
All I can say is I found that if I pre-conceal with the maximum coverage concealer brush (it comes with the kit) that covers a multitude of imperfections before you buff your foundation over the rest of your face as normal. I was staggered at how well it covered after being initially sceptical. Go to a big department store where they let you try it out or give you a demo if you're not convinced.

When I've had it tested before I was told I was "Light", however, when outside the shop, this was far too orange so I went to another place to get tested and they told me "Fairly Medium". I am slightly anxious which starter kit is best as I definitely do not want to be orange!! So which Starter Foundation Kit would you recommend?

I have very fair freckly skin and have bought the fairly medium and it's absolutely perfect for me. In the starter kit I use the lighter of the 2 colours provided and gradually build it up then finish it of with the finishing veil.
You only need a small amount of the powder as well and gradually build it up.

A: 
Unfortunately there isn't currently a kit for fairly medium, which is a real shame because so many people use the colour. I'd perhaps go back to the boutique and ask them to mix colours you can get in the get started kits to see if any of them will blend to match your skin tone. This might be a better option for you anyway as it sounds like you're in between colours at the moment. You could also mix the warmth to counteract the orange look. Remember, this can change in the Summer and Winter months!

I was told to go for light but I found this a bit dark so I had fairly light and used this until I was comfortable applying it and now I use light as I know how much is enough although I do find myself going ott on nights out as I love it so much. The trick is swirl, tap, buff so don't apply too much at once keep buffing x
