When it comes to foundation, we prefer not to play favorites — instead, we love having a wardrobe of formulas to suit every mood and every occasion. The newest addition to our foundation closet? BAREPRO 16HR Skin-Perfecting Powder Foundation.
This longwearing, talc-free formula is ideal for anyone who needs a foundation that can keep up with their busy schedule — whether that involves zooming from meeting to (virtual) meeting, dashing to school pickup, or anything in between.
This updated formula now has even longer wear — 16 hours of sweat, humidity and transfer-resistant full coverage, to be precise. It also offers 24 hours of oil and shine control, leaving your complexion with a fresh, natural matte finish. And if you’re prone to breakouts, don’t stress — we formulated this pressed powder foundation to be non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic.
We also added more skin-improving ingredients: Pineapple Complex helps to brighten and smooth, while Peony Extract and Sugarcane-Derived Squalane help to hydrate and nourish. You’re not just perfecting your complexion when you wear this clean, vegan foundation — you’re doing good for your skin, too. And you’ll see results even after you take off your makeup: our testers noticed their skin looked more even after just two weeks,* and after four weeks they saw smoother-looking skin texture, too.**
We should also point out that this silky formula won’t settle into fine lines or end up looking cakey. The secret is our unique pressing method. Let us explain: traditional pressed powder foundations are made with only dry ingredients and then pressed directly into the pan. BAREPRO Powder Foundation, on the other hand, is made with a combination of wet and dry ingredients before it’s pressed into the pan, resulting in a formula that stays creamy and cake-free. This unique formulation method also means you can apply it wet or dry, depending on what your skin likes best. In general, those with oiler skin might prefer to apply with a dry sponge or brush, while those with drier skin might like to use a damp sponge or brush for a creamier application. Experiment to see what works best for you, and feel free to mix it up depending on the season or how your skin is behaving on any given day.
