      I would never go back to liquid, cakey foundation. I've used Bare Minerals for a few years and the coverage and weightlessness is beyond compare with any makeup out there.The Mineral Veil is also a great finish!

                          We would suggest trying Golden Ivory 07 in the BareMinerals ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15. Neutral Ivory 06 would also work if you are interested in Light to Medium as opposed to Light as a shade darker.
