Additional Information

What it is:

7 CLEAN INGREDIENTS Made with oily skin types in mind, this vegan matte loose powder foundation starts with the same skin-improving minerals found in our iconic ORIGINAL Loose Mineral Foundation SPF 15. Formulated with just 7 clean mineral ingredients — and without any unnecessary additives, binders, fillers or talc — it's MAKEUP SO PURE AND CLEAN YOU CAN SLEEP IN IT. GOOD FOR SKIN COVERAGE MATTE Loose Mineral Foundation SPF 15 promotes clearer, healthier-looking skin over time and is clinically shown to reduce shine and absorb excess oil. Customize your coverage from sheer to full with this effortlessly buildable formula that wears all day without clogging pores, causing break outs or settling into fine lines. This skin-improving mineral makeup is available in 30 shades that flatter every skin type and tone, visibly perfecting skin with a no-makeup look and feel. MINERAL-BASED SUN PROTECTION With mineral-based, non-chemical Broad Spectrum SPF 15, MATTE Foundation also protects from damaging UVA/UVB rays. Unlike chemical sunscreens that absorb UV rays, mineral-based sunscreens work to immediately block UV rays from absorbing into the skin. Containing the active minerals Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, mineral-based sunscreens provide physical protection from the sun. EFFORTLESS APPLICATION When you use our signature SWIRL, TAP, BUFF application method, the mineral pigments warm up and blend seamlessly onto your skin. Easy to use, this weightless mineral foundation never looks cakey, whether you’ve got a naturally oily complexion or just prefer a matte finish. Our online Foundation Shade Finder makes it easy to choose your shade. You can also stop by a bareMinerals boutique for a free Shade Matching consultation. FULL OF CLEAN, NATURAL MATTE COVERAGE FREE OF CAKING

  • Once you tap out some foundation and apply to one side of the face, do you tap out additional foundation to cover the other side of the face, etc.? Or does the initial amount cover the entire face? 

    Asked by: LaceyH
    Hi LaceyH, Great question! The amount of product you need to tap out will depend on how much coverage you want to achieve. We suggest starting out tapping a small amount and you can always add more!

    It seems that the original foundation in medium tan 18 is lighter than the matte in this shade. The matte looks so much darker. Is this true?
