Our team suggests:

Apply a pearl-size amount of primer prior to the application of bareMinerals BLEMISH RESCUE™ Skin-Clearing Loose Powder Foundation. Use your index and middle fingers to press and roll primer onto areas where you see redness, large pores, bumps or flakes for maximum smoothing and redness control. Repeat until skin texture looks more even. Next, layer primer on any unprimed areas of the face for even foundation application. Your clear skin routine For the best results, we recommend starting with clean bareMinerals® skincare designed for sensitive and acne prone skin. Cleanse with BLEMISH REMEDY® Gelée Cleanser and spot treat with BLEMISH REMEDY® Serum before applying an oil-free moisturizer like TRUE OASIS™ Replenishing Cream. Follow with bareMinerals BLEMISH RESCUE™ Primer and Skin-Clearing Loose Powder Foundation.

    Is this primer safe to put under the eyes as well? I love that this is a good primer for acne-prone skin that won't clog pores - but I want to make sure it's also safe for the delicate skin of the eye area.

    Asked by: Tonitrus
    Hi Tonitrus, You can apply our BLEMISH RESCUE Anti-Redness Mattifying Primer to anywhere on the face you'd normally apply a primer prior to your makeup application. We do recommend not applying the primer or any product too close to your inner eye as it is a sensitive area.
