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.

    Hi, I am currently using your matte powder foundation in W15. I am looking to try the original mineral powder foundation, which shade should I go for? (Am looking to get the "get started kit") Thank you!

    Asked by: xwcmc
    Hi xwcmc, If you're wearing Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in Neutral Medium 15 or barePRO Performance Wear Pressed Powder Foundation in Sandalwood 15, then you'll be shade Neutral Medium 15 in Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15.

    Hi BareMinerals Team,  I received this as a gift in shade medium 10, and normally purchase the shade vanilla in other foundation/tinted moisturizer products. Will this shade be too dark? Otherwise I’d love to give this to a friend. Thank you! 

    Asked by: Jen44
    Hi Jen44, Our Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in Medium 10 is best for medium skin with cool undertones. Your regular shade Vanilla 02 in Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream is best for fair skin with neutral undertones. We suggest maybe trying your gift foundation as your new summer shade and hope you like it as much as we do!

    What concealers works best with this foundation (I wear golden ivory)? I want to use a concealer for under eyes and occasional blemishes.

    Hi there! I saw a review about the color changing. I didn’t know this happened! Around when did it? I always used orig. medium beige 12 pdwr. and did notice a color change a few months ago too. What would I be now?

    Asked by: LJade
    Hi LJade, The Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 that you always loved is the same formula and hasn't changed but what did is that we simplified the name of your favorite foundation to be more globally relevant with a numbering system in which 1 is the lightest and 30 is the darkest. Shade names will still be available on packaging for your reference. You would still wear this in Medium Beige 12. The minerals in our Original Loose Powder foundation are derived from natural ingredients and as such, there can be variations from batch to batch. bareMinerals will continue to improve the standardization of this process which will eliminate these batch variations going forward.

    In the bareMinerals Original powder, is there a difference between medium beige N20 and medium beige 12?

    Asked by: CMGrace
    Hi CMGrace, bareMinerals simplified the name of your favorite foundation to be more globally relevant with a numbering system in which 1 is the lightest and 30 is the darkest so your current shade in Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 is Medium Beige 12!
