          If you have oily skin this is perfect...I'm 60 ..and yes I still have oily skin which is good for fighting wrinkles. Love these products. They do not clog pores which can be a problem for oily skin.

                          MATTE Foundation provides buildable coverage, from sheer to full. Your best match may be Medium Beige for medium skin tones with neutral undertones, though we suggest visiting your nearest ULTA store for complimentary shade matching to ensure this shade is perfect for you:

                          For those who wear Bare Satin, we suggest Medium for medium complexions with cool undertones. You can certainly use MATTE over bareSkin for fuller coverage and a matte finish!

                          bareMinerals MATTE SPF 15 Foundation works beautifully for skin of all ages! The loose mineral powder actually has a surprisingly creamy, blendable consistency once applied to the skin. It won't settle into fine lines or wrinkles. To further minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles, apply a primer such as bareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer Original prior to foundation application to ensure a perfectly smooth canvas:
