                Been a favorite of mine from it's beginning. I also have used the original formulation but I like the matte the best. I do use a primer or a moisturizer underneath and have no problems with it blending as long as I allow the moisturizer to dry a minute. Moisturizer and primers aren't requires with this base makeup though. I've used it without also. My skin is dryer as I've gotten older. I also apply my concealer first and apply this over it with a light sweep of a buki brush or full round makeup application brush works as well. I like a light barely there look for everyday. For this I apply a small amount and work in a circular motion. When I want a heavier look and more coverage, I apply lightly and then reapply in areas that need more coverage. That way works best for me. I also change colors with seasons. I blend two colors in the transition to a Tanner skin tone.

Should someone with my type of skin set this foundation with powder? And if so, do you recommend any powders that go good with this foundation?

                        A:

                        Setting using finishing powder such as Mineral Veil is totally optional! Many do wear Matte Foundation alone. Please note, though, that Mineral Veil is very refined and never looks cakey, if you do choose to use it to set your foundation.

                      I have very oily skin. I don't use any type of make up because it is so oily. I have tried several oily skin face cleansers and they just don't work. I know I can't get rid of oily skin just like that, but does the matte foundation help minimize throughout the day? Without clogging up my pores?

                        bareMinerals Matte SPF 15 Foundation features a natural matte finish and is clinically proven to minimize the appearance of pores. Because many with oily skin desire a shine-free finish, the most popular choice for those with oily skin is the Matte Foundation. All bareMinerals products are formulated to ensure no potential for comedogenicity. We also recommend first applying Prime Time Oil Control to help maintain a lasting matte finish:
