          I bought this product due to the high rating. However, after purchasing this product I was EXTREMLY disappointed. Even when applied in a thin layer this product goes on cakey and sinks into pores. Ive tried multiple ways of application, including a pore filler (and I have small pores to begin with). This product is a waste of money and I will not be purchasing from this brand again. Don't waste your money

                      Hello Debra,

                      It is possible to use a cream blush with the ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15. We suggest stippling the blush on lightly and gradually working the rogue into the apples of your cheeks and towards your temples for the best look possible.

                  • Q:

                    Is this original foundation non comedogenic? I have very sensitive, acne prone, and oily skin. Unfortunately I can't use anything that isn't. Also could you tell me is the gel tinted moisturizer? I was thinking of getting that also for days off so I'm not always wearing full makeup.

                      All bareMinerals® foundations, and facial moisturizers are tested to insure that they have no potential for comedogenicity. Also, we think you are referring to our Complexion Rescue™ Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream, if so, it is tinted moisturizer, but also so much more! It's packed with powerful SPF 30 and a tasteful tint of hydrating foundation, this gel cream is blessed with the benefits of our marvelous mineral makeup with marine botanicals and mineral electrolytes that hydrate and boost your skin's natural beauty.

                  • Q:

                    I use the Bare Minerals Original Foundation Powder in (Light) color... I found out I shouldnt be using the bare minerals warmth for contouring..... and was instructed to go 1-2 shades darker than (light) to have a cool shadow contour rather than a warm shadow contour etc.... So.. which ones in the Bare Minerals powder line would be considered one to two shades darker than (light)??? Thanks!

                      A:

                      Hi, we have a few suggestions, our Original may not be the best choice to contour with, because it has a luminous finish. We would suggest either Matte or BarePRO foundations as an alternative. For shades, we would suggest Faux Tan or Skinny Dip. They are much cooler than Warmth so will resemble the shadow you are trying to create. You can also use the Deep End Bronzer. Hope this helps!

                      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!
