                          Depending on the actual amount used per day (assuming some days it may be more or less than one actual pump), this can last anywhere from 6-12 weeks.

                          The BareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer would be a good option for you in addition to a setting powder or spray to help your foundation stay put. Please also note that we recommend possibly changing your moisturizing routine as your skin may need added moisture.
