Ask a Question
Know that airbrushed perfection that's in all the magazines? bareMinerals has got the same soft-focus finish right here in a jar. Illuminating Mineral Veil gives you a pearly, ethereal glow that reflects light for a photo-fabulous look. And like bareMinerals original Mineral Veil, it's the flawless finishing touch to any makeup routine.

Benefits:
  • Minimizes pores and fine lines for a smooth, flawless look
  • Absorbs oil without drying out the skin
  • Completely translucent, so all you see is beautiful skin
  • Keeps your skin clear of preservatives, waxes, talc, and binders
  • Prolongs wear of bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation, Lipcolor, and Eyecolor
  • Can also be worn on bare skin for a fresh, feather-light finish
  • Works beautifully for all skin tones and types
  • Features "Click, Lock, Go" sifter
Soak it up. For oilier complexions, in humid climates, or with heavy moisturizers, start with an application of Mineral Veil before applying bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation.

Take it to go. Swirl and Tap Mineral Veil into the brush before you leave the house. (For a day-to-evening look, swirl Clear Radiance along with the Mineral Veil.) Put on the cover, pop into your purse, and Buff on your bareMinerals on the go or as an office to evening pick-me-up.

      Comments about BareMinerals Illuminating Mineral Veil:

      It really does make a nice airbrushed finish, as advertised. You should be advised that it is subtly sparkly. Personally, I love this, because it makes me feel like a less catty version of Tinkerbell. However, if sparkles aren't your thing, you might want to buy one of the other mineral veils instead.

                            Typically, we recommend applying Mineral Veil as your very last step to set your makeup, although some prefer to apply after foundation and before blush - it's totally up to you! It can also be reapplied to touch up your look throughout the day as needed.

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

                            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.
