                    I am a huge fan of the line but have yet to find a primer that works well with BareSkin Foundation. This BB Cream Primer was suggested with promises of more coverage in combination with foundation. I found that it neither provides coverage nor effectiveness as a primer.

                            A:

                            Because Complexion Rescue features built-in priming benefits, there is no need to use an additional primer, though you can certainly use in conjunction with Prime Time BB if that is your preference. Setting with Mineral Veil is also optional, but if you have oily skin, you may prefer to set your makeup with Mineral Veil to ensure lasting wear and to keep skin shine-free.
