        Good buildable coverage. I use a liquid concealer to cover dark under eye circles before applying mineral foundation. This works well but does settle into fine lines more that other foundations. The foundation does not cause my skin to breakout though and that's what I was looking for in a foundation. It's easy and quick to apply.

          I can make the coverage as heavy or light as I need with just a little more powder on the brush. Covers well and evens my skintone without looking caked on.

                I love this and how it is easy to use. You can build your coverage and my face can still breathe. I use this in the color light 04. I alternate between blemish remedy foundation from bareminerals in tge color clearly pearl as well on different days just for the heck of it cause they are both great. I never thought a powder could cover like this. I used to sponge on liquid foundation and pack powder on top. The oxidation of the liquid foundations always changed the color on my face and also broke me out. Thanks for making bareminerals!

                  Comments about BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

                  I have been using bare minerals original foundation since high school and have never found anything better. I've come to find that liquid foundation, while good at providing an airbrush finish, can end up looking too fake and difficult to blend into my jawline/nick. Bare minerals looks so natural, it's very easy to blend into my jawline and neck, even when i apply "warmth" too. I can really vary the amount of coverage i need while still looking natural. A lot of the cons people aren't happy with can be remedied with having the right tools. Wearing any makeup by itself is going to wear off/fade/etc., you need to make sure you wear a good primer for your skin/type of foundation and also wear a setting spray so it'' last. Poor coverage in general? Make sure you're using the right brush. Poor coverage over acne or redness? Make sure you're also using a concealer or using and color correcting like green or yellow.
                  I will continue to use this everyday!!

                        Hello Makeupaddict101,

                        We would not suggest this to cover large birthmarks as the coverage is light to medium. Although build-able, we would suggest using a full coverage foundation instead, or a concealer for your birthmark underneath this foundation if you are trying to cover it.

                        BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 does not contain sparkles or shimmer. By soft luminosity, it means that certain minerals in this item reflect light which would appear as luminous once applied to the skin.

                        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.
