      Golden medium 14, why didn't I find you until I was 51 years old? This is a perfect match for my skin - not too dark, not too orange, not too white. Beautiful, buildable coverage - you can use just a little to even out your skin tone, or build it up to a full coverage, natural looking finish. And it does not look dry. Nor does it feel heavy. The SPF really works, too.

        I have dry skin, so in the winter I wear a cream foundation, however the summer heat seems to melt it off my face I've switched to using bare minerals original foundation in the warmer months. It absorbs sweat & keeps me looking cool & fresh all day long!

                    If you had previously used shade C20 in the BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15, we recommend using shade Fairly Medium 05.

                • Q:

                  I am pretty fair/light with yellow undertones.. Most of my foundations are for Yellow Base, But I have no clue what shade to buy in this! I have tried Fair and Fairly Light both of which were way too Pink for my skin... I currently use Make-Up Forever in Shade Y215 which matched perfectly, but I prefer to wear powder foundation in the summer... Any suggestions for shade?
