HOW TO

4 Easy, Essential Concealer Techniques

Before
After

Conceal Dark Circles

1. Using the shade designed for your skin tone, glide BAREPRO® Concealer under the eyes, starting from the inner corner and moving outward.

2. Gently blend in using ring finger and finish by blending with a small, diffusing brush such as the Shade & Diffuse Eye Brush.

Before
After

Conceal Blemishes, Uneven Skin Tone or Uneven Skin Texture

1. Using the shade designed for your skin tone, apply concealer directly from tube.

2. Pat in gently with ring finger.

3. For fuller coverage, blend out with a small, flat brush such as the Max Coverage Concealer Brush.

4. To diffuse coverage, blend with a dual-fiber brush such as the Shade & Diffuse Eye Brush.

5. For best results, finish with a dusting of Mineral Veil® powder using the soft, fluffy Supreme Finisher Brush.

Before
After

Brighten Dull or Sallow Skin

1. Using the shade designed for your skin tone, or one shade lighter, focus on the center planes of the face to accentuate and add brightness. Applying to the forehead, cheeks, bridge of nose and chin will help to counteract dullness.

2. Blend in using a dense brush, such as the Luxe Performance Brush. For extra precision around the nose, you can also use the Shade & Diffuse Eye Brush.

3. For best results, finish with a dusting of Mineral Veil® powder using the soft, fluffy Supreme Finisher Brush.

Before & After
Application

Contour and Highlight

1. Select two shades of concealer, one that is 2-3 intensities deeper and one that is 2-3 intensities lighter than your skin tone, depending on your desired level of contrast.

2. Apply the deeper shade in the hollow of the cheeks to sculpt and define cheekbones and along the sides of the forehead near the hairline to visually shorten the forehead.

3. Using light pressure, use the Shade & Diffuse Eye Brush to apply along sides of nose for a slimming effect.

4. Using the lighter shade, apply directly above contour shade on cheeks, down the bridge of nose, center of forehead and chin to bring light to the center of the face.

5. Using the Blurring Buffer Brush, buff in the lighter highlight areas first with long back and forth strokes, then blend in the deeper contour areas.

6. Use a smaller brush to blend nose contour, such as the Shade & Diffuse Eye Brush.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from DISCONTINUING THIS IS TRAGIC! Three pumps of the prime time in the tint, "fair" and two of shade "light" gives me an awesome and flawless coverage that I can layer the blemish control powder foundation

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best primer I’ve been using this primer for about a year. Best ever. Lovely matte finish, perfect tint to skin and keeps my oily skin in check all day. Plus it doesnt irritate my already acne prone skin! I haven’t had a problem with the pump like other reviewers. It isn’t perfect but neither is it hard to unscrew the cap and get the primer out that way if you have a problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't live without! I've been a long time user of this product and it's my favorite step in beauty routine. It feels amazing on the skin!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will never stop using this stuff!!!! A+ Most bare minerals products are fantastic, so this is just one of my favorites. I used to work for bare minerals for a few years not long ago so I know it all works and all over better for your skin. Their skincare completely transformed my skin and again, I won't use any other skincare ever. I'm obsessed. So working for bare minerals I have to bring up all of these comments About the make of the primer bottles. I have never had this problem because most of you are probably not shaking it before every use, cleaning off the hardened part where the product comes out so it doesn't shoot all over the place, and also do not unscrew the bottle open either and you will be fine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost there I started using this product about nine months ago. I absolutely love how it evens out my skin, covering redness and not looking fake, BUT the product starts to separate and what gets pupped out for a little while is the thinner part of it, leaving soon the thicker part that can't settle to the bottom and pump out. So I've had open the top and hit it out or use the lid with the straw to scoop it out. I deal with it because as I said, I love how it looks on my skin, but bare minerals need to fix this. It's not hard.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs New Dispenser I love this product and have used it for years, even though the dispenser needs a redesign. With all the negative reviews about the bottle, what is keeping you from offering it in a different dispenser. This product does get thick, so from day one, you need to shake it up every time you use it. But when you shake it, eventually the tube comes off and the dispenser quits working. I guess if all of us die hards would quit buying it, you might listen and change it. The product itself is wonderful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Evens skin beautifully! I have been using this since last winter on my combination skin. It soothes and smoothes my dry skin. It absorbs into my oilier skin. It even fills in the little wrinkles under my eyes. I can use it alone, with the powder foundation or even with liquid foundation for heavier coverage. Remarkable product!
    Date published: 2017-08-04
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from SPF Prime Time I recently bought this product and hoped that all the negative reviews about the pump had convinced the company to make a necessary change. It's still exactly as everyone said...the pump works for a bit then the product gets thick and the pump doesn't work at all. When it's thick it doesn't go on as well and it's a bother to use q- tips or the straw to get globs of it out. Nice product at first but not worth the effort later; I'll go back to my old product.

  • Is the Prime Time neutralizing foundation primer still for sale? Would love to purchase some more. I have a reddish complexion and like how it calms my skin down.

    Asked by: LeoP
    Hello LeoP, We no longer carry the Prime Time neutralizing primer. We recommend trying our COMBO CONTROL MILKY FACE PRIMER Balancing Face Primer for Combination Skin as an alternative: https://goo.gl/36u5wQ.

    Did you discontinue the medium tint in Prime Time BB Primer Cream Daily Defense? This is my second time that I'm not able to order medium. In fact, my last order, I ordered medium but the color was either fair or light and now I cannot order the medium.
