Tap off excess. bareMinerals should not be visible on the outside of the brush. Buff bareMinerals onto the skin in a swirling, circular motion, starting on the outside of your face near your cheekbones. Then, buff around your face, working your way to the cheeks, forehead, and nose. Buff until you're satisfied with the coverage. Less is more when applying bareMinerals.

    If you have dry skin or many fine lines, probably not the product for you, as your skin may get that 'caked on' appearance.

                        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!
