Additional Information

What it is:

5 CLEAN INGREDIENTS

ORIGINAL Loose Mineral Foundation SPF 15 is the iconic mineral makeup that started the clean beauty revolution in 1995. Formulated with just 5 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

This skin-loving, vegan formula cares as it covers, promoting clearer, healthier-looking skin over time. Customize your coverage from sheer to full with this effortlessly buildable formula that wears all day without clogging pores, causing breakouts or settling into fine lines.

That’s why it’s is the #1 mineral foundation in the U.S.* Available in 30 shades that flatter every skin type and tone, it's makeup with a no-makeup look and feel.

 

MINERAL-BASED SUN PROTECTION

With mineral-based, non-chemical Broad Spectrum SPF 15, ORIGINAL 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 transform from powder to a silky cream that blends seamlessly onto your skin. Easy to use, this weightless mineral foundation gives you natural-looking coverage that never looks cakey.

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 LUMINOUS COVERAGE

FREE OF CAKING

Our team suggests:

SWIRL, TAP, BUFF®
Our signature application method will give you buildable, seamless, natural-looking coverage! We recommend applying with our [https://www.bareminerals.com/makeup/makeup-brushes/face-brushes/beautiful-finish-foundation-brush/US77069.html 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 in 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.

    If I used BareSkin bare beige 08, is the original foundation a good replacement for my old favorite? And if so, what color should I be using? Can you layer this product on top of the complexion rescue, or is the coverage great by itself? 

    Asked by: BB1234
    Hi BB123, Great question! We love our Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 and think you should try this if you like a powder foundation which has buildable coverage (you can apply this over another foundation for extra coverage or alone) in shade Neutral Medium 15. If you want a lightweight hybrid foundation we think you'll love our Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream in shade Wheat 4.5

    I went to Ulta and was told I should use Medium 12 which I thought was slightly dark for me. The quiz says I should go with Medium Soft 11. Are they extremely different or is the difference in the two shades subtle?

    Hi TLTalbot, Soft Medium 11 is ideal for light skin with cool to neutral undertones & Medium 10 is ideal for medium skin with cool undertones. We think you should trust your best judgement and choose the shade you think will work best for you!
