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. Click, Lock, Go™ Sifter Instructions 1. FOR FIRST TIME USE: Remove the clear tab inside to toss away. (Sifter is now in open position.) 2. Dispense product inside lid and begin “Swirl, Tap, Buff®” application. 3. When finished, grab the outer ridges of the sifter and turn to the right until it clicks. (The click indicates the sifter is in closed position.)* 4. Close jar lid. 5. FOR CONTINUED USE: Open jar lid and turn the sifter to the left until it clicks into open position. *To stop the flow of product, always close the sifter prior to placing jar lid back on.

  • On the pictures of the models, it looks like 01fair suits me best (since I have a light and uneven skin), but when I see the pictures of the powder it looks like 01 is more 'orange' than 05fairly medium (more 'pink'). What is the difference between them?

    Asked by: emma01
    Hi emma01, Our Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in Fair 01 is best for fairest porcelain skin with cool undertones and Fairly Medium 05 is best for fair to light skin with cool undertones. We suggest considering your overall skin tone and undertones when deciding which shade is best for you.

    I am trying to avoid mica in my makeup because of the recent humanitarian crisis in mining mica in Madagascar. I saw the ingredient list and it say "may contain" mica. Can you please elaborate whether this does or does not contain mica. 

    Asked by: Louda313
    Hi Louda313, Thank you for your question! Even though mica is not an ingredient in the formula for the Matte Foundation, that product is created in an environment where mica is handled, and therefore we cannot make the claim that it is 100% free of Mica. bareMinerals does not support the use of child labor in the mining of mica or any ingredient used in the sourcing manufacturing of cosmetics and personal care products. As part of our quality control, we only use raw materials from reputable and socially accountable suppliers who share our views on quality and fair labor practices. bareMinerals Code of Conduct promotes and expects lawful, ethical and honest behavior by our suppliers around the world. We encourage their compliance with all labor, health and safety requirements.
