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.

    Which finish of the original foundation powder would be good for a "young looking" 68 yo grandmother? It was suggested that this age group usually goes for the Matte finish, but I see that someone wrote in that the Matte finish is best for young skin.

    I have been using Original Foundation Medium (there is C25 in a little white circle) right next to "medium". I want to reorder but you have so many different types of the Medium shade. Which is the one most compatible with the one I am using now?

    If I wear fair 01 in the winter, what would be a darker shade to wear in the summer? I've been using fairly light but it makes me a little orange at times. 

    Asked by: chloe121
    Hi chloe121, We think you'll like Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in Fairly Medium 05 or Soft Medium 11 for summertime.
