      I'm going through the fading process from a suntan back to normal (pale) skintone. I'm medium during the winter and it appears medium tan during summer and fall.

            Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

            I have been a loyal bareMinerals customer for almost 5 years now. I started using bareMinerals after reading reviews about how the brand is supposedly kind to your skin and noncomedogenic. I started getting very mild breakouts during my first year of college and didn't need much makeup to cover up. However over the years my skin got progressively worse, and I noticed a correlation between the clogged pores the amount of bareMinerals foundation I would use that day. I would wake up with fairly calm skin but by the end of the day my jawline and chin would be covered in comedones! A few weeks ago I finally had a meltdown and threw all of my makeup in the trash. I had read online that bareMinerals matte foundation has an ingredient in it that the original foundation does not contain. It is highly comedogenic in some people. After a few weeks of being completely makeup-free, my skin has honestly never been better. I can't believe I was MISERABLE for 5 years trying to get rid of my clogged pores when my makeup had been causing it all along. I will never go back to using bareMinerals! I truly believe this brand was the sole reason for my comedones.

              I purchased the bare minerals matte foundation because I was looking for a good foundation that would not cause my skin to break out. I chose the matte over the regular foundation because I prefer the polished look with no shine on my face and this product works very well. It lasts throughout the day and doesn't feel heavy even if you touch it up later on. It helps make my skin tone look more even but still feels light. Overall I would highly recommend this product and am interested to try more of the bare minerals products in the future.

                      The Matte foundation leaves you with a Natural Matte Finish while the Original Foundation leaves you with a Natural Luminous Finish. Hope this helps!

                  • Q:

                    My skin tone ranges from tan(summer) to medium(winter) and I already have the tan color and now I want to purchase a medium shade, but the medium shade on the picture chart is a bit too light.. Are the colors on your chart accurate? And should I choose medium beige or medium tan?

                      A:

                      Hey there! Yes our charts are accurate. The Medium Beige is going to be for Medium skin with a neutral undertone and Medium Tan is for Tan Skin with a cool undertone. If you're more tan now since summer is coming to an end, you may want to try the Medium Tan, then transition into the Medium Beige as winter approaches!
