                      bareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer features a lighter weight formula that is oil-free, mattifying, and ideal for skin prone to excess oil and/or blemishes. Both formulas create a silky smooth canvas for makeup application.

                  • Q:

                    When using Prime Time, do you still need a daily moisturizer or does this take the place of that? If so, in what order do you apply? I use a moisturizer in the morning before makeup and a different moisturizer at bedtime.
