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

  • Is this foundation meant to used for both foundation and powder purposes? Or should a separate powder be used?

    Asked by: LB76
    Hello LB76, The Loose Powder Matte Foundation SPF 15 is a powder foundation that you can wear alone and build up the coverage as needed, or you can pair it with a liquid foundation for extra coverage. -Brittny, Clean Beauty Artist

    I use make up forever duo mat 209 (summer) and 207 (winter) Which one/ones of bare minerals should I get?

    Asked by: Samj
    Hello, Samj Thank you for your interest in our Matte Foundation SPF 15. We recommend trying the shade Golden Beige, which is perfect for warm skin with yellow undertones and a close match to Duo Mat 209. We recommend Golden Medium, which is perfect for light warm skin with a golden undertone and a close match to Duo Mat 207. -Jessica, Clean Beauty Artist

    I currently use Light 08, but is a little dark. Before that I used 07, but it was a little too yellow. Number 07 is pinkish so that won't work. What would you suggest, mixing 08 and 06 or diluting 08 with the Mineral Veil?

    Asked by: CHRISTIsm
    Hi CHRISTIsm, We suggest trying Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in Neutral Ivory 06 because it has a neutral undertone.

    I have this in Med Beige 12 but it leaves me so yellow and a tad darker. Flax 9.5 in BarePro Performance Liquid matches me 100% right now that it's winter, it's a little light during summer. What would you recommend close to Flax in the liquid form?

    Asked by: mmiissyy
    Hi mmiissyy, We think you should try our Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in Light Beige 09.

    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!
