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. 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.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

  • How come the original foundation broad spectrum spf 15 powder no longer contains zinc oxide? It says on the website contains both titanium dioxide and zinc, but on the container only lists titanium dioxide 25%?

    Hi CB92, We suggest referring to the ingredients on your jar of foundation or any of our products as the ingredient listing will be specific to that product's batch. We hope that helps and will communicate your feedback with our team! Thank you,

    Because of COVID, I can't go in and find my true shade. I tried medium 12 and it was okay. I think it is the correct tone but a little too dark when I add multiple layers for more full coverage. What is the next lightest shade with the same undertones?

    HI ellllllie, We suggest Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in Light Beige 09 or Soft Medium 11.

    Hello! I used the online tool to see which would match and it said Golden Medium. It was way too yellow and didn’t match. I also bought Summer Bisque Concealer which matches 100% is there a foundation the same color as Summer Bisque Concealer?

    Asked by: Mtdowner
    Hi Mtdowner, We suggest Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in Warm Natural 12 as it is a neutral undertone shade. We don't have a foundation to perfectly match Summer Bisque but think the shade we suggested will work very well with it.

    I need to find a replacement for Laura Mercier Mineral Powder 3N1 natural beige and I'm not sure which shade or powder type to get. They don't make the Laura Mercier brand anymore.

    Asked by: JulieBinter
    Hi JulieBinte, We love that powder too and are happy to help find you a substitute! We suggest trying our Medium Beige 12, which is ideal for light to medium skin with a neutral undertone. Neutral Medium 15 may also work for you if your undertones are neutral and your skintone is more on the medium than light side.

    I wear Fairly Light most of the year but in summer I definitely am needing a darker tone due to natural sun tanning. What would the next two darker shades be? I’m hoping to get quite tan so I may need not just the next shade but the shade after that. 

    Asked by: BDubs85
    Hi BDubs85, If Fairly Light 03 is your go-to for most of the year, we would recommend Neutral Ivory 06 as the next step towards a darker complexion (although that might not be enough of a change if you are planning on a lot of sun exposure). The following shade in that tanning progression would be Medium Beige 12.
