    Comments about BareMinerals Get Started Complexion Kit:

    I get this kit specifically because of the value, this if used not sparingly but not over-using should last a good 2-2.5 months or more. The only con is the concealer is so tiny but I LOVE the concealer it blends really well. You also get the face brush which is like 25$ or so itself so it is a good deal :)

      Comments about BareMinerals Get Started Complexion Kit:

      I absolutely love this brand! I've had this kit for over a week now and it does great! My face is very sensitive and lately I've been breaking out more so I decided to stop using my liquid foundation. I've been using this kit in its place and my face is finally clearing up. These powders can be used as medium coverage to full coverage depending how much you apply. It's so lightweight I forget it even wearing makeup now and it gives me such a flawless finish I'm obssessed!

                        Hi,
                        Thank you for your question. I would recommend you get the Tan Complexion rescue Get Started kit. I would recommend using the Smoothing Face Brush to apply your Complexion Rescue. The dual synthetic fibers of the bristles provide control and diffusion of the product for a soft smooth application for a more air-brushed effect. The best method to apply with a brush is to squeeze a pea size of the product on the tip of the brush and start from the outer circumference of the face and apply in circular buffing motions. Be sure to start of with a light application and build as needed. Thh brush is a best seller and a great tool to get a beautiful finish for your complexion. Hope this helps!

                      I use the shade Wheat in the complexion rescue what would be a good shade to start with in the powder foundation? Also could I use the complexion rescue as a primer under the powder foundation for more coverage?

                        Hi, Jen!

                        Since you wear Wheat in Complexion Rescue, our suggestion would be the Fairly Medium shade in Original or Matte, depending on your preference in finish. And yes, you can use Complexion Rescue underneath either Original or Matte for more coverage! It may not extend the wear of your foundation since it is not considered a "primer," but it will give your skin a beautiful, radiant glow!

                        Try Original Prime Time Primer underneath your Complexion Rescue for added longevity and a silky-smooth finish!

                    • Q:

                      I'm 56 with fine lines around eyes and mouth. Will the powder formulation accentuate and settle in the lines? Does the powder tend to dry the skin?

                        Hi, Judy! Great question!

                        The Original Foundation is great for all ages and all skin types because it contains only 5 ingredients which help improve the look and feel of your skin. This formula is not drying at all. You shouldn't find it to be drying to your skin. As someone who is also dry with the same concerns, I don't find it settles into my lines in these areas.

                        Of course, it is important that you find the right skincare prior to meet your needs before applying any foundation. If you feel your skin needs added hydration, try SkinLongevity Vital Power Infusion serum combined with either Bare Haven or Butter Drench moisturizers. These are great products from bareMinerals that will help address those concerns.

                        Furthermore, a primer is a great tool to use before your actual foundation. Try our Original Primer which is designed to keep your makeup on longer and has a silky finish you're sure to love!
