              I have such sensitive skin that it is really a chore to put on foundation. Until I broke down and order bare minerals from an info commercial. Game changer. I even have adventured into blush and eye shadow. I love is brand. I have since bought from Ulta website. With freebies and bonus buys. I won't buy it anywhere else.

                      I used to use this years ago and then Bare Minerals came up with the Ready compact. Unfortunately, they down-graded to the new Ready Pro, so I'm back to using this. It's not the most convenient with the tapping and loose minerals, but the finish is great and long-lasting, it has sun screen, and it doesn't have the extra junk. I used to use R20 in the Ready, I can now use fairly light or fairly medium in the good old loose minerals. (Just in case any other R20 lovers are fed up with the Ready Pro.

                          Thank you for your question. Happy to hear you are already a Bare Minerals Customer. I can recommend a great product for your Highlighting needs. The Invisible Light Translucent Duo has two translucent powders in the compact. The matte absorbs oil and creates an even, long lasting, youthful looking finish. The glow, which will suit your needs, is infused with rose gold pearls and adds sheer luminosity for highlighting and strobing. I would also recommend the Dual-Finish Blush and Contour brush for the best application. Happy Shopping!

                          A:

                          Hey, Bre! Great questions!

                          Since your skin is more Combination (oily in some area, dry in others), the best way to ensure that your makeup will apply best is with the right skincare. If you're able to, purchase our Smart Combination moisturizer for day and night. That will help to ensure your skin gets the nourishment it needs day and night.

                          This foundation will give your skin a beautiful, luminous glow. Keep in mind that in areas where you're more oily, you may want to use Mineral Veil on top to help mattify the skin more.

                          I will certainly encourage you to stop by your nearest store and try our products together with a beauty expert. That way, you can be matched up with the perfect color and see it in conjunction with our other lineup.

                          Good luck!

                          Because our Original Foundation is made of minerals which buff on as a cream, you can choose to use a liquid concealer BEFORE or AFTER you've applied Original. I would try it both ways and see which one wears best throughout the day.
