            I cant say enough good things about this product. I have been using it since I first started wearing make up. I am 21 now and I still plan never to change my foundation. My sister and mother use it as well and are equally as happy. I have acne prone skin, my mother has dry skin, my sister has oily skin. WE ALL LOVE IT. Amazing product.

                • Q:

                  I normally set my liquid foundations with translucent powder because of my oily skin. Will this foundation last without a finishing powder or is it recommended to follow through with one?

                    A:

                    bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation provides buildable sheer-to-full coverage for up to 8 hours on its own, so using a setting powder such as Mineral Veil is completely optional. bareMinerals Mineral Veil is a sheer finishing powder that can be applied to set your foundation or worn alone to absorb excess oil and minimize imperfections.

                    This product works well for all skin types including dry skin!

                    For dry skin, we recommend prepping the skin with moisturizer and primer prior to application to ensure a smooth canvas. Try bareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30, which serves as a tinted moisturizer, primer, and sunscreen in one, to smooth, protect, and perfect skin:
