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

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.

    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.

    I’ve been wearing Medium Tan for years. I guess my skin tone is changing during spring and summer months because now my makeup makes me look grey. I tried the Find Your Shade tool and it said Medium Deep which isn’t an option. What shade should I try?

    Asked by: Adrea84
    Hi Adrea84, We suggest trying shade Golden Tan 20 and maybe adding a highlighter product to brighten and highlight your skin, like our Endless Glow Highlighter!

    Is this Original loose powder ok for someone that’s 70?  I like sheer and easy to apply. Tired of heavy liquid feel. 

    Asked by: Clydajo
    Hi Clydajo, This foundation is suitable for all ages but we do stress great skincare and moisturization for all ages. We suggest applying Skinlongevity Vital Power Infusion Serum, followed by your favorite bareMinerals moisturizer and then applying a primer to fill in fine lines and smooth skin like our Good Hydrations Silky Face Primer before makeup application.

    For years I have been wearing the original foundation in Fair 01. The most recent one I've purchased is VERY fair. Did the color change? Should I be purchasing Fair Ivory now?

    Asked by: Laurenm2293
    Hi Laurenm2293, The formula didn't change although there could be very slight variances between batches occasionally as these are composed of natural elements, plus any differences in your skintone due to sun exposure. You can use either shade as Fair Ivory is for neural skin tones.

We recommend applying our Skinlongevity Vital Power Infusion Serum followed by Skinlongevity Vital Power Eye Gel Cream. We love using a primer such as our Good Hydrations Silky Face Primer to help fill in fine lines and create the perfect foundation for makeup application.
