            I use only in spots where needed. I blend on blemishes or age spots and it works really well. With tanning color, I went one color up and will blend with the one color down powder to get a nice even mix.

                Horrible. Accentuates everything you're trying to cover, will make you look old, will make your skin feel dry and tight. The BarePro is much better.

                          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?
