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.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

  • I have just started wearing bareMinerals. I purchased Medium Beige 12. It is a little too light for my skin. It will be perfect in the winter when my skin is paler. What shade is a little darker?

    Asked by: NancyMe
    Hi NancyMe, Our ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in shade Neutral Medium 15 is slightly darker than Medium Beige 12, with the same neutral undertones.
