                • Q:

                  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.

                  Hi! If I use a mix of medium beige and medium in the original foundation, what shade would I use in the matte? Are they the same? Also is there a shade that would be better suited as I am in between shades every time I try to get color checked. Thank you!

                  Hi, I have been debating on whether or not to try this product. I have slight acne that changes in a heartbeat; I might have almost clear skin one day and nothing but pimples the next. Should I even attempt to use a mineral foundation such as this one, or stick with a liquid foundation? Thanks so much!

                    Hi,
                    Matte foundation is suitable for acne prone skin. It is clinically proven to minimize the appearance of pores, give you a flawless coverage, a natural matte finish and a no-makeup look and feel that lasts up to 8-hours.The lightweight minerals also absorb excess oil without drying your skin. Another option you can try is Blemish Ready Foundation which is designed for blemish prone skin. This is also a weightless mineral powder foundation with a medium to full buildable coverage that diminishes the appearance of imperfections, skin redness and shine with two active ingredients, tea-tree oil and aspen bark. Hope this information helps you choose the best foundation for you!

                    A:

                    Hello, Holly!

                    Matte foundation always works best if you layer it to build the coverage. Of course, you want to Swirl, Tap and Buff the product appropriately. You just may need to do so a few more times to build your desired coverage. Also, ensure the right type of brush is being used for maximum coverage. If you don't have it already, purchase the Beatiful Finish Brush. It will make quite the difference!

                    Also, try the Blemish Remedy Mattifying Prep Gel when you're in need of a new primer. This lightweight gel glides on effortlessly and immediately dries down to an invisible matte finish, prepping skin for a beautifully smooth makeup application. Formulated with Aspen Bark, Tea Tree Oil, and a Peptide Complex to help promote clearer, healthier-looking skin, this weightless formula also features an oil-absorbing mineral to help keep skin looking fresh and flawless.

                    I hope this helps!
