      I use this product with the Physicians Formula CC cream for full coverage and bareMineral mineral veil to set it. If I am press for time, I would just use the foundation with the mineral veil.

                  I went into Ulta and had a "beauty expert" help me find something for my rosacea. She said this would cover the best. I hate it. It does not last long and it is not even my color. I prefer liquid and usually put this over the top of my liquid just to use it up.

                      A:

                      This product is designed to be buildable which allows you to decide how much or how little you need to achieve your desired look. BareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation will not settle into fine lines or wrinkles. To further protect makeup from settling into fine lines and wrinkles, we recommend prepping the skin with moisturizer and primer prior to application to ensure a smooth canvas. Try bareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30, which serves as a tinted moisturizer, primer, and sunscreen in one, to smooth, protect, and perfect skin: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod6470091

                      A:

                      If the mix is seeming a bit too warm/yellow, we suggest using Medium alone. Medium features more cool/pink undertones.

                      A:

                      Both Original and Matte Foundations are formulated for all skin types and feature buildable sheer-to-full coverage, so which to use is a matter of personal preference, though many with combination/oily skin types prefer the matte finish that Matte Foundation provides.

                      A:

                      This foundation provides buildable sheer-to-full coverage, so you can easily achieve your desired level of coverage to fully conceal discoloration from acne scarring. bareMinerals concealers provide full coverage. To help improve texture of scarring, we suggest using a primer such as Prime Time underneath your foundation and concealer.

                  • Q:

                    I bought this product like forever ago and i just barely ran out of it, back then i was tanning a lot and was a bit darker so when i went in they suggested i try the medium tan but now I'm a lot lighter, I am latin and am naturally tan with a little red and yellow undertones. Problem is i currently live in Honduras and am not able to go to my closest ulta store.. Do you think the golden medium would be a good choice for me? Since it's one shade lighter then the one i currently have.

                      A:

                      For medium skin tones with a neutral mix of red and yellow undertones, you may find that Medium Beige is your best match. If you have stronger yellow undertones, then yes, Golden Medium is what we'd suggest. We hope this helps!
