    • Stays On Great

    • Why 2 Of Same Foundation
    • Wish Came With More Brush

      Comments about bareMinerals Get Started Complexion Kit:

      I love the way it looks and stays on. Wish it came with only one foundation instead of 2 but at least you have more! The mineral veil is wonderful. The primer is a bit oily for my skin & I had to learn to go very easy with the bronzer. The Golden Tan color is great for my skin tone.

          I have always avoided mineral foundation because I was afraid it would not cover my occasional breakouts and redness! If you take your time and apply this properly, you will have phenomenal results!! I do wish the kit came withe the full flawless brush ( for medium to full coverage) instead of the flawless brush. The kit is still a great value though!

              Comments about bareMinerals Get Started Complexion Kit:

              I used BM several years ago and moved on to something else. I thought I would give it another try. I still love the coverage and the way it makes my skin feel, and I have fewer skin issues compared to a liquid or cream foundation. I give it 4 stars because it does need touched up about half way through my day, but most foundations do. I also like that it doesn't settle into lines and creases. BUT, they are more obvious if you apply too much.

                          Unfortunately, they don't make it in Golden Medium. :-( This set is only available in select shades. The closest shade to Golden Medium is Medium Beige, which features neutral rather than warm/yellow undertones.

                          The products within this kit are designed for use on all skin types. For best results on dry skin, we recommend first exfoliating a few times weekly using a gentle scrub or peel to eliminate any flaky skin texture, and then moisturizing daily and nightly using a moisturizer suitable for your skin type. We also suggest using a primer such as bareMinerals Prime Time after your moisturizer to create an ultra smooth canvas for makeup application. This kit includes a Mini Prime Time Foundation Primer, which we know you'll love!

                        Hello, I am somewhat new to bareMinerals, i started off with the complexion rescue, and loved it. However I am looking for something with more coverage as I suffer from acne. This seems to be the kit I am looking for. My color was somewhere in between the Buttercream and the Natural in the complexion rescue line.
                        What skin tone would you recommend I go with for this line?

                          Original and Matte Foundations provide up to 8 hours of wear. Using the Mini Prime Time Foundation Primer underneath your foundation, plus setting foundation with Mineral Veil finishing powder will definitely help to extend makeup's wear. All products within this kit are formulated for all skin types including oily skin. bareMinerals formulates all of their products to minimize any irritation or discomfort, but if you have a known allergy or diagnosed skin condition (such as rosacea), we do recommend consulting your physician.

                          If you're a makeup novice, bareMinerals Get Started Complexion Kit is a great place to start!

                          bareMinerals products are formulated for all skin types, and bareMinerals ensures their foundations and complexion products have no potential for comedogenicity (won't clog pores).

                          We think you'll especially love the Matte Foundation within this kit! It features up to 8 hours of wear with a matte finish, perfect for those with oily skin.

                          Additionally, Mineral Veil helps to absorb excess shine as well as to minimize the appearance of enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles, and other imperfections. It provides a soft focus, flawless finish when applied over your foundation and can be reapplied as needed throughout the day for touchups.

                          All of these products are super simple to use! Detailed instructions are included with this kit, as well as listed below:

                          Four Steps To Flawless:

                          Prime Time Foundation Primer: Apply one pump of Prime Time Foundation Primer, massaging an even layer all over your face for a luminous, skin-smoothing finish. Allow it to dry, then apply bareMinerals Foundation.
                          bareMinerals Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15: Apply with the Flawless Application Face Brush using the SWIRL, TAP, BUFF Application. Start application on the outside of your face near your cheekbones and work your way to the cheeks, forehead and nose. Buff until you're satisfied with the coverage.
                          Warmth All-Over Face Color: Apply using the Flawless Application Face Brush. Sweep just a touch of color on the forehead, cheekbones and chin, where sunlight naturally touches, in the shape of the letter "E" and the number "3". Warmth All-Over Face Color creates a nice contour to the face.
                          Mineral Veil Finishing Powder: Buff on using the Flawless Application Face Brush for a smooth, translucent, soft-focus finish all day.

                          Warm Tan is not an available shade for this kit. Your closest match may be Golden Tan, which is slightly more yellow-toned. We recommend testing this shade at your nearest ULTA store to ensure it is a good match for your skin tone:

                          The products within this kit are designed for use on all skin types. For best results on dry, flaky skin, we recommend first exfoliating a few times weekly using a gentle scrub or peel to eliminate flaky skin texture, and then moisturizing daily and nightly using a moisturizer suitable for your skin type. We also suggest using a primer such as bareMinerals Prime Time after your moisturizer to create an ultra smooth canvas for makeup application. This kit includes a Mini Prime Time Foundation Primer, which we know you'll love!
