Additional Information

What it is:


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.



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.



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.



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.

Our team suggests:

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 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.

    I have rosey and golden undertones in the summer and fair rosey, neutral in the winter. I have tried 3 colors already and they all seem to be too yellow. Even the Ivory 02 is more for olive skin. Please advise. I've been to the store twice.
