    Comments about bareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20:

    I'm 63 and this should have been better for my skin, but, the product didn't work as well as the powder. It had a tendency to "pill" up and it didn't matter how long I let my moisturizer set. I mix 3 or 4 shades of the powders to get the right shade for my skin and will continue to do that. I did like the shade because it matched almost perfectly.

          I have used this product daily for about 3 months. Overall, when my complexion is good it works well, although lately with the change in seasons and drier air it isn't covering well enough and appears greasy at times.

              wouldn't recommend the brush, and you definitely need to shake the bottle.

              I LOVED this foundation, it was perfect. It matched my very pale skin, blended seamlessly, and lasted all day. Unfortuanatly it broke me out really bad. This would be perfect for someone who didn't have this reaction to it.

                  I use bare minerals powder usually but in the winter my skin gets dry and patchy. Would you recommend this for that time of year or possibly a moisturizer to layer with?

                  I use the powder foundation currently and have heard excellent reviews on the bareSkin. Would I still need to use mineral veil with this foundation?

                    A:

                    Using finishing powder such as Mineral Veil is completely optional! Those with oily skin may prefer to finish using Mineral Veil over bareSkin Foundation to keep skin shine-free and extend foundation's wear.

                    Absolutely! bareSkin Foundation features buildable sheer-to-full coverage plus natural skin brightening ingredients to promote an even complexion. Use 2 drops for sheer coverage, 4 for medium, and 6 drops for full coverage.

                    Try bareMinerals Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Concealer in Honey Bisque or bareMinerals Correcting Concealer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 in Tan 1. These products' shades are ideal for tan complexions with cool undertones like yours!

                    Primer is optional! You can certainly layer Prime Time underneath your bareSkin Foundation to extend its wear.

                • Q:

                  Out of the shades i was matched with, one was too dark and yellow, the other too light. I was thinking of mixing the lighter shade with the medium shade BB Primetime. Would the foundation perform ok mixing the two products to darken it up?

                    A:

                    Yes, you can certainly "cocktail" your bareSkin Foundation with bareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer. Another option that we'd suggest is using bareMinerals Warmth All Over Face Color to set your bareSkin Foundation; it features a warm tint to deepen the shade and will help to set bareSkin for lasting wear:

                    A:

                    bareSkin Foundation features a very fluid consistency, so although you can apply using your fingers, for best results we suggest using a makeup brush or sponge to apply. We recommend using bareMinerals Perfecting Face Brush (Item #: 2272522), designed specifically to use with bareSkin Foundation, for best results:
