Fair - For the fairest porcelain skin with pink undertones
Clinically proven to promote clearer, healthier-looking skin. Our loose mineral foundation gives you all the flawless coverage you want with a naturally luminous finish and no-makeup look and feel that lasts up to eight hours. The creamy minerals diminish the appearance of imperfections without drying out skin.

Formulated without parabens, binders, fillers, or synthetic chemicals.
It's makeup so pure you can sleep in it.®

© Bare Escentuals Beauty, Inc.

For flawless coverage, follow our three simple steps...SWIRL, TAP, BUFF.

  • SWIRL a small amount of bareMinerals into the lid with the Flawless Application Brush (for lighter coverage) or the Full Coverage Kabuki Brush (for more coverage) until the bareMinerals are tucked into the bristles.
  • TAP off excess. bareMinerals should not be visible on the outside of the brush.
  • BUFF bareMinerals onto the skin in a swirling, circular motion, starting on the outside of your face near your cheekbones.  Then, buff around your face, working your way to the cheeks, forehead, and nose.  Buff until you're satisfied with the coverage.  Less is more when applying bareMinerals.

    Comments about bareMinerals Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15, Fair (C10), .28 oz:

    Liquid foundations do not sit well on my skin. I've tried many over the years. I do sometimes use a BB cream in the winter but mostly use Bare Minerals (original) foundation is amazing on my dry skin. I just place a small amount of poder on the cap, swirl my foundation brush in the cap, tap it and apply to the skin in circular motion. The coverage is amazing. One of my favorite things... I can create a light-medium coverage or build it up to a full coverage on the days I need it. I always use mineral veil to set the look, so I recommend purchasing that as well. The price is a high but it lasts me 4 months or so.

    Use as concealor

    Comments about bareMinerals Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15, Fair (C10), .28 oz:

    I use C10 Fair (I have very light skin with red in it).

    Been using for years. I never use as an all-over product, I just use it to dab on to areas of redness or imperfections.

    It does feel drying, and if you have already dry skin it will look bad. Works best on well-hydrated skin.

      Comments about bareMinerals Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15, Fair (C10), .28 oz:

      I last used this product about ten years ago and thought I would try it again. Initially, I adore it. I wear the fairest shade, and the coverage is absolutely beautiful. But it is too drying for my skin; even with my heaviest moisturizers (I tried La Mer, Embryolisse, and Caudalie)l my skin would start looking flaky and parched in about four hours. I've tried to re-hydrate with moisturizing sprays but nothing helps. I imagine that for normal or oily skin this foundation is absolutely fantastic. I'm going to hang onto it and try again in the summer.

              I am 50+ and liquid makeup does not apply well. This brushes on fast and beautiful, smooth finish. It lasts all day without starting to look weird. I get compliments about how nice I look.

              Comments about bareMinerals Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15, Fair (C10), .28 oz:

              I bought the shade for fair skin tones as I am exactly that. My eyes are light (blue), I have freckles, and I burn, peel and almost never tan. Still, the color wasn't right. It looked as though I was pasty and pale. I had better results with the free sample that came with the order. It was a slightly darker shade that looked completely natural when I applied it.

              I am not really impressed with the click, lock, go container. I don't carry the stuff around with me (it's on my bathroom counter) so I'm not really concerned about spillage and instead, some of the powder gets up under the turny part and doesn't come out. I actually ended up dumping the free sample powder into the full size one so that I could darken the shade a bit. It seemed to work ok.

              I still see fine lines on my skin and it doesn't seem to do what the commercials say it does as far as smoothing those out. Maybe it's just me, though, because my husband told me that I looked younger the day I wore it.
