  • Step 1: SWIRL a small amount of foundation in the cap until it disappears into the brush.

  • Step 3: BUFF onto your skin circular motions. This activates the minerals and transforms them from a powder to a silky cream.
  • Repeat until you've achieved the coverage you want, from sheer to full.

    Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

    I've been using Bare Minerals foundation for 8 years. I have sensitive skin and this doesn't irritate it or make me brake out in odd rashes like I do with many other products. I used the original foundation and mineral veil for 5 years then gave the matte version a try about 3 years ago. I tend to be shiny but not that oily. The matte hides the shine without making me look dull or drying out my skin and I can skip the mineral veil which saves me money.

        I love the light coverage this powder provides. Just enough to take the red out of my skin. A little pricey but It has SPF 15 and bought when Ulta offered 20% off. I have used Clinique powder for years, but this one has better coverage. Looks very natural!!

          Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

          I am a budget buyer, but not when it comes to foundation and concealer. There is no equal to Bare Minerals for me. And, I have tried many! I was certain less expensive brands would be just fine. But, I've wanted a lot of $ trying to find one that would work for me as well as Bare Minerals. There is none for me. I don't even care for their pressed powder or liquid foundations. This is it for me. If you like mineral foundation, this is it. If you had a bad experience with others, try this.

            Comments about BareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15:

            I've been using this product and this brand for YEARS, granted I'm not all that happy about the price but Ulta will have sales specifically for this brand or a 20% on prestige brands. So I try to make my dash and stock up when I can. I love how many colors you can get and that it's light weight and long lasting, there's different undertones for all skin types and I prefer the matte for my oily skin but they also have the original for dryer skin types. It's a smidge messy but I just wear a robe when I do makeup so just keep that in mind if your wearing white trying to apply there loose powder. Over all I will continue to buy this product
