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 use Cetaphil's moisturizer with SPF because I have sensitive skin. Can I use this product after I use that moisturizer? Also, I use number 04 bare ivory in BareSkin. What is the best shade for this?

    How do I prevent the powder foundation from creasing in my lines and wrinkles? I use the bareMinerals primer and am using the "swirl, tap, buff" method but it always creases. What am I doing wrong? :-(

    Asked by: SueW
    Hi SueW, Great question! We think a primer beforehand is an amazing way to prep the skin for your makeup application. We also love priming the skin after cleansing. First, we love applying a serum like our Skinlongevity Vital Power Infusion Serum, followed by a moisturizer to hydrate the skin, like our Bare Haven Essential Moisturizing Soft Cream. Your skin should now be ready for your regular makeup routine.

    I would wear original foundation in the light shade however now it comes as light 08. Is it the same shade? what shade is the same as the original light? For some reason the light 08 seems darker than the original light shade

    Asked by: Karina05
    Hi Karina05, 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 now wear this in Light 08. Our foundation is made with 5 mineral ingredients, which are naturally derived elements so there can be very slight differences occasionally. We want to assure you though that your beloved foundation is still the same foundation!

    I am light-complected and have used the "Warmth All-Over Face Color Bronzer" for the crease on my eyelid. Could I play around with the darker shades of the "Original Loose Powder Foundation SPF 15" and use it in the same way as an eyeshadow?

    Asked by: Lynski
    Hi Lynski, We love that you like to experiment with your makeup routine and think you should feel free to use this in that way if you'd like!

    Asked by: SueW
