    Comments about bareMinerals Mineral Veil:

    I used Mineral Veil under my Bare Minerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15. Or alone over my moisturizer. It is light and doesn't cake up your foundation.

    I've been using Bare Minerals for about 8 or 9 years.

            I use this product as the last step in applying make-up. Love the polished look it gives your skin. It also helps control shine. I'm in my 50's and am going through 'the changes' and this really helps to keep me "cool" especially with the summer heat and humidity.

                      I have the fairly light starter pack, and I ran out of the veil and I was wondering if this is the shade that matches the one I have now?

                        It is really up to you! Personally, I apply Mineral Veil after foundation, then follow with blush and bronzer, but I know several users who apply Mineral Veil as their very final step of makeup application over blush and bronzer. There is no wrong way! :-)

                        You can certainly apply it to bare skin to minimize pores, lines, and shine. Mineral Veil provides sheer, translucent coverage and can be reapplied throughout the day as needed to eliminate shine.

                        Absolutely, Mineral Veil works beautifully as a shine control powder and helps eliminate excess oil. Mineral Veil features a very sheer, translucent finish, which makes it ideal for all skin tones. It leaves skin with a silky smooth texture and feel and blurs the look of pores and any skin imperfections.

                        Although either order is correct and depends on your personal preference, we typically suggest applying Mineral Veil after foundation application and before blush/bronzer application.

                      What is the difference between mineral veil and bare minerals powder foundation? Do you use them together?

                      Will this work just as well over a foundation or a bb cream that isn't from the bare minerals line?

                        This product may be used in conjunction with a different brand of bb cream or foundation. Mineral Veil is intended to be used after foundation to help hold in place, minimize pores and extend your foundation's wear.

                        This product features a super sheer, soft translucent finish suitable for use with all shades of bareMinerals foundation, including Tan.

                        bareMinerals Tinted Mineral Veil (Item #: 2122525), which features a subtle warm tint, is also a great option for those who wear Tan foundation:

                        A:

                        For your skin tone, we would recommend the Original translucent soft finish rather than the Tinted finish. This product can be applied using a face brush such as bareMinerals Flawless Application Face Brush. This product can be used alone on bare or moisturized skin to minimize minor skin imperfections or applied over foundation to set your look.

                        This product functions as a finishing powder and complexion perfector, so it would be applied after bronzer to prolong your bronzer's wear. This product works well to minimize pores and fine lines but does not provide much coverage as a base. For sheer to medium coverage, instead try bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=VP11362
