      I use this product every single day. It contains SPF and it's lightweight but has great coverage. If you need heavy coverage, this is not the product for you. It's perfect for overall coverage but I don't feel made up. It's perfect for my type of skin. Oily t zone. I have been using this for years.

          Event the selection to describe skin tone is limited but this products blending is not.
          Bare Minerals has really improved its shade offerings. I am a medium warm brown golden with peach undertones. The ULTA Rep matched me very well with the "tan" shade of BM. I am confident that I will be able to get more "warmth" out of the next shade as spring/summer approaches when natural tanning occurs.

This foundation is easy to apply and provides the perfect amount of coverage even when you have the occasional blemish. I have a dry and oily skin and it provides the perfect balance; never making my skin dry and never making skin look oily.

                • Q:

                  I am over 70 (!) and haven't needed makeup for most of my life. I now have a few brown spots and would like to know if BM would provide coverage for the problem.The only serious wrinkles I have are lip and smile lines because I have never been a sun worshiper. I've been told that powder would make them worse. Please let me know if your product is suitable for me.

                    The BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 would be suitable as it offers sheer to full build-able coverage. If you are concerned about spots, we would suggest a concealer underneath for the best results.

                  My face tends to perspire easily, so I have never been able to wear any kind of liquid foundation. Luckily for the most part I never really needed one. I would like to find something that will hold up under this condition, to even out my skin tone while looking natural, would this product possibly work for me?

                    Warm undertones are golden, yellow or peach. Cool undertones are red, blue or pink. Neutral undertones may appear greenish or have elements of both warm and cool tones.

                  Is bareminerals matter foundation good for oily skin? I have been through bottles of brands and none of them live up to their expectation. I have tried this foundation before and it was good, but make me cake on my upper lip, was there too much product there? And it wore off and my redness shined through, I can't remember how it did with my oils though.

                  Hi, I've been using Bare Minerals 'Tan' matte finish foundation since May 2016 and find that it is too light for my olive complexion. I believe I started out using Med tan and would like to go a little darker than what I am currently using. The color in the picture seems lighter when I compare the Med Tan to the Tan. Is Med tan lighter than tan? Suggestions?

                    A:

                    The Medium Tan is slightly lighter and better for cool undertones and the Tan is better for neutral undertones. Many customers tend to use two shades of foundation throughout the year depending on the seasons. Potentially one is a better fit in the summer months and another is a better fit in the winter months. If you feel you have more golden undertones we would suggest going with Golden Tan.
