                  This product looked heavy. You could tell there was foundation on my face. Also the color was really strange even though the employee at Ultra matched my skin tone. It was an unnatural gray color. My pores looked enlarged when using this product.

                  I love this product. I put it on in the morning and don't have to reapply until 8 hours later. Sometimes I use the primer but I don't really see that much of a difference with coverage or staying on longer. I will purchase this product again and again.

                          A:

                          Absolutely, you can certainly layer MATTE Foundation over bareSkin Foundation for extra coverage! bareSkin Foundation is noncomedogenic (non-pore clogging) and oil-free, so it is totally safe for acne-prone skin.

                          This foundation is formulated for all skin types including dry skin! It is even clinically proven to help improve skin texture. For best results on dry skin, we recommend moisturizing prior to foundation to ensure smooth application. Optionally, you can also use a primer like bareMinerals Prime Time (after moisturizer and before foundation) to further smooth skin and seal in your moisturizer for extra hydration.

                          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.
