                              Hi,
                              Thank you for your question. The multi-tasking BB primer-cream immediately diminishes the appearance of discoloration, uneven skin-tone and imperfections while providing Broad Spectrum SPF 30. The silky smooth formula also helps with flaky dryness, excess oil and helps to diminish the appearance of pores for a flawless foundation application. Licorice root is a know antioxidant that supports and helps protect skin from environmental stressors and helps balance oil, which is great for oily skin. Hope this information helps with your question.

                              I would recommend Tan if you're your darkest skin tone right now, Medium if you are a bit lighter. Either one would work great for you!

                              The finish is a silky, smooth texture with very little color. It pairs great under any of our foundations!

                            I wear the Medium Beige orginal mineral foundation. Should I get one or two shades lighter in this primer.

                              Hi there! Based on what you wear in Original Foundation, we'd suggest using the Light shade in this primer.
