        I originally started buying this for my daughters but one of them didn't like it so I finished the jar and LOVED it! I have been using this for almost 10 years and keep coming back to it. I have tried using other brands and liquids but they just don't compare.

          I've loved this product since the day I tried it in 2006. I've attempted to find other brands that work just like it or close enough to it as the price can be slightly discouraging. I haven't been able to find anything like it that blends as well with my skin tone and looks as flawless as this product.

            I started using this product when it came out, years ago. I liked it then but I still had young skin so tried other brands for easy application, etc. Now that I am older, I went back to the Original Foundation and I love it more than ever. And it is easier to apply! Doesn't settle in creases. Doesn't look like a powder pancake. Gives my sun damaged skin a perfect veil with enough tint to not look like I have been fairy dusted. Thanks!

                I have been using Bare Minerals for many years now. This is the best make-up I have ever used. It is light and covers quite well. My skin actually cleared up when I started using it. In fact, if I go a day or two without any make-up on, I start to see a few pimples forming. I tend to be a bargain shopper, but will pay for a product that truly delivers. This foundation definitely delivers.

                      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.
