    Comments about bareMinerals Illuminating Mineral Veil:

    I use this as a finishing powder and helps tame the shine. I have a reservation regarding the application of this product. I have to apply a very small amount to my powder brush and dust lightly over my face, otherwise if it will settle in my pores and lines if I get too much product. Also, it can get a little messy because it's a fine loose powder. Other than this it is a good product and you get a lot of product for your money

    Comments about bareMinerals Illuminating Mineral Veil:

    I like to use this product on a day where my skin is just feeling gross. I feel like it adds a little bit more life into my skin. I use it very lightly all of the face after I apply my foundation and it looks absolutely gorgeous! My only problem, is that it can get pretty messy. But other than that, I would definitely recommend this!

      Comments about bareMinerals Illuminating Mineral Veil:

      I use the illuminating veil as the finishing touch to my makeup for evenings and special occasions, to add a photo-ready finish to my look. The veil really makes my skin glow and look beautiful, young, bright and healthy! The only drawback is it is a little sparkly up close, so in natural bright daylight, I don't think it would look as appealing. I wouldn't use it every day or for daytime wear on a really sunny day when you will be outside a lot.

        I use this with a blush brush as a subtle highlight over my regular mineral veil along my cheekbones, nose, center forehead, and chin. Pretty and subtle enough for daytime wear.

          Comments about bareMinerals Illuminating Mineral Veil:

          Mineral Veil is applied over top of the rest of your makeup as a finishing powder to settle everything in. The Illuminating Mineral Veil adds a touch of...sparkle...to your face, hence the "illuminating" in the title. It is supposed to help capture the light and make your skin look dewy and fresh. It does, depending on how much you put on. Heavy application will settle into those fine lines (not good) and too little application will not provide the glow. A nice product/effect and I would definately recommend it for special occasions, photographs, and in low-light conditions. Not too fond of it as an everyday product, but again, it depends on how much you put on. As a side note, as with all Mineral Veil products, because of the super-fine grain/consistency, when "swirling" and "tapping," it does create quite a bit of dust in the air, so be careful when breathing while using this product.

            I love this product and have been using bare minerals for over 20 years. I have oily skin and this helps eliminate that too much shine but still gives mr the gglowing complection I want. I'm 46 and people tell me I look 30. I tell them thank you and to use Bare Minerals.

                        The difference is subtle! Illuminating Mineral Veil features a brightening dewy finish, while Brightening Gold Mineral Veil features a soft glowing golden finish.

                      Can I use this on bare skin? I don't like foundation but do like to have a nice glow that minimizes imperfections. I have combo/dry in winter and oily in summer, which one would you recommend? Have not tried any of the baremineral but wanted to give it a try.

                        While you can apply to bare skin, for best results for those with your skin type, we suggest moisturizing with an oil-free lightweight moisturizer and/or priming prior to application. Prime Time Oil Control helps to keep skin mattified all day and helps extend this product's wear:

                        Illuminating Mineral Veil provides sheer coverage and helps to minimize the look of pores, fine lines, and other imperfections. It also provides a subtle luminous glow.

                        This product is formulated with light-diffusing minerals to lessen imperfections, even and illuminate the complexion, and absorb excess oil. bareMinerals cannot claim that this product will make you look 10 years younger, though it does minimize pores and fine lines. To conceal blemishes, try bareMinerals Correcting Concealer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 or bareMinerals Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Concealer. You may want to consult your child's dermatologist regarding use of this product or any other product before adopting it into his/her regimen.
