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:

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 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.

    I usually wear Medium 10 but during the summer this seems too light. What is the next darker shade? I need something with cool undertones.

    For most of the year I normally wear the shade Light Beige in the original loose powder. Now that it’s Summer, I’ve gotten quite tan. What would be the next shades deeper than that? I would say that I have a more neutral undertone.

    I usually use neutral medium but I'm finding it's a little light for me as my skin is getting tanner as the weather is warmer. What color is one shade darker but still has a a neutral undertone (not warm or cool)?

    Asked by: girl3000
    Hi girl3000, Well-Rested Under Eye Brightener SPF 20 is a unique, universal product that was designed to work on a multitude of skin tones but we think you may want to try Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in Fairly 03 or Golden Ivory 07 to start. We think you may also find foundation shade matching tool helpful:
