Our team suggests:

SWIRL, TAP, BUFF® Our signature application method will give you buildable, seamless, natural-looking coverage! We recommend applying with our Beautiful Finish Brush, which deposits the ideal amount of minerals and fits perfectly into the cap. Step 1: SWIRL a small amount of foundation in the cap until it disappears into the brush. Step 2: TAP away any excess. 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.

  • MATTE Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 256.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great coverage but too dark I love the matte finish and I got the fair color, however, for some reason the fair is darker in the matte than the original foundation. When I put the fair matte on it gets darker on my face, a couple shades darker than my neck. Please create a porcelain color for people that need one shade lighter than fair. Thanks!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thee best foundation out there! I absolutely love this product. I have combination skin and this matte foundation makes me look photo shopped in real life. My pictures have looked amazing since using this and it lasts ALL day. I work long 12 hour shifts and when I get home, it looks like I just put it on. I never have to do touch ups on it. I never have breakouts anymore either. My skin doesn't even feel like I'm wearing anything, it is that light but provides full coverage. Truly, there is no other foundation like this out there. Plus I feel great knowing Bare Minerals is part of clean beauty and never tests on animals.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage I've been using this product for about 3 years now. I switched from the original BM powder foundation, which is another great product. I love the matte finish and lightweight feeling. This is definitely my everyday go to foundation. I have sensitive skin that is a little on the dry side so I do have to apply moisturizer and primer before applying foundation. I love that this product is buildable and allows me to choose from light to full coverage. Age range 18 to 25 (not an option for some reason)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long time user I have used this product for many years. Love the way it blends with my skin tone and evens out the coloration on my skin. I even use it as a pigmentation cover up by dabbing on the areas that are discolored before I put the foundation all over my skin. Also the fact that it is a foundation without chemicals is a major plus.

  • I have always used the original foundation. I’m looking at trying the matte one. I wear the medium beige in original. Should I go a shade lighter in the matte? I saw some of the reviews said it looks darker in the matte?? Thank you.

    Hi there, I had the matte foundation in medium C25.  I can’t seem to find it anywhere and I’m wondering if you have new codes for your color and maybe my old product is outdated?

    Asked by: Katieray
    Hi Katieray, We suggest our bareMinerals Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in Medium 10 as your new go-to shade!

    Hi! I wonder if there is any shades from the matte foundation I could blend somehow to get as close that I can to the dawn 02 shade? I love that shade but it gives my bad skin while the matte foundation powder does not, but the shades are not the best.

    Asked by: Ania
    Hello Ania, We recommend trying shade Fairly Light 03 in the MATTE Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 as it contains the same shade and undertones as Dawn 02 in our barePRO foundation.

    Did you change the shade range? I used to use the third lightest shade, but now even the lightest shade is way too dark for my skin tone.  

    Asked by: lilygrace77
    Hello lilygrace77, The Original and Matte foundations have expanded their lines by 10 shades. We recommend viewing our shade finder here to compare shades:

    What’s the difference between original and matte? 

    Asked by: Lisa15
    The difference between matte and original foundation has to do with the finish that the skin leaves. Matte foundation targets excess oil and leaves a matte finish, Original foundation has a luminous finish.

    Did the shades change? I used to be able to use the third lightest shade, and then that became too dark so I started using the lightest shade.  Now that shade is too dark, even when I have fake tan on.  So did the shades change?
