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.

  • ORIGINAL Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 425.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yea, no chemicals! I've used Bare Minerals for many years and love the ease of applying it to my face. It looks and feels so natural and light, no one would ever know I'm wearing make-up!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nearly 20 years I have used this foundation A++ I have only used this foundation and blush for nearly 20 years and still get compliments on my skin and I am 72 - Great products do not hesitate to give it a try!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed with the color & the formula Bare Minerals has been around for a long time. You'd think they would have perfected their color palettes by now. I'm very fair with cool undertones. I don't tan at all, I have never had a tan in my life. Except when I used this foundation in Fair 01. It made me look sick, orange-y and unnatural. It's a total failure. Also, I'm over 40 with dry skin and a few wrinkles. All this foundation did was further dry out my skin and settle into my wrinkles making them look worse. And coverage was not that either. Putting too much on will result in a dry cake-y look by mid-day. Bottom line: Not the color advertised, not to be worn by those with mature skin, poor coverage and finally -- way over priced.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have use this 20+ years!! And I still love it so much. I am now 52 years old and everyone said that powder foundation makes you look older, but that is not true for me, this foundation covers everything that I don’t like. And when I have hot sweats it stays in place. I tried some liquid foundations recently, high end Lancôme, Estée Lauder, and a few more that were recommended for “older skin”, and they were all horrible, they didn’t cover my bad stuff and all I could see were wrinkles I didn’t even knowi had. I have also used other mineral foundations, in the past 20+ years and none have come close to the coverage of this one. To say I love this product is an understatement, I now live in a place that doesn’t have a boutique, so I fly back to my best friends home so we can go buy makeup in her city where she has several so we hit them all (being old has its perks). I started using this as a young woman, because it covered my pimples so well and I had oily skin, I now have dry skin, age spots, wrinkles, and pimples sometimes, yes old lady’s can get them too. For me this is the best foundation ever and I have literally tried them all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from lightweight and flawless... I love this foundation! I have used it for over 10 years now, while I have tried several newer products I always come back to this foundation. I have very dry and sensitive skin. The original foundation is light enough to let my freckles show through but covers enough to even out my blochines! I appreciate that there are so many colors, especially options with the "cool" pinker undertone vs. the yellow or beige options. I use "medium" and am thrilled with the natural perfectly blended look I can achieve with it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome product I absolutely love this foundation. I was never a powder foundation type of person, but I gave this one a try and I am so glad I did. My only problem is that I am very fair skinned, and the lightest shade is still too dark for me. That is my only reason I gave this four instead of five stars. If they could make a couple lighter shades, I’d be hooked for life!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall great service and quality and pricing I've used bareminerals for years and love it! The foundation flawless powder is my favorite and I only use it. Love the light weight feel with no caked on look.
