Glammy Award Winner for Best Department/Specialty Stores from 2005-2014 (10 years and counting).

Fairly Light - For porcelain-to-light skin with neutral 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.

    This is the best makeup I have ever used in the world, hands down. I've tried everything and nothing compares. To address the prior user's reviews - yes, you have to be careful with it when you open it as powder does tend to spill out from time to time (but it cleans up with a wet rag or even just with your hand - no big deal). And yes, there are no instructions on the package. But how often are there instructions on makeup boxes? The prior user is clearly only concerned with instant gratification and not willing to make the very minimal investment required to be able to use this INCREDIBLE product. Please don't hesitant in giving it a try - I promise it will be well worth it. My skin has never in my life looked as good as it does using bareMinerals. After a few practice applications, you'll be happy that you did

    I have been using this foundation for a few years. I like it very much, and have come back to it after trying other mineral foundations. However, I may leave once and for all once I find a good foundation with a better container. This Click Lock Go is a disaster, and a ripoff to boot. It's hard to get foundation up to the top, so I wind up opening the bottom very soon - so much for portability. Also, the mechanism catches mineral powder, causing much more waste than the old container. And I don't have one to compare, but I think it's a higher price for less product! The mechanism makes it feel heavier. If ID came out with a better container like the old one, or at least a lower cost refill, I might not leave them. As it is, I am on the lookout to leave them asap. Pity, because the foundation itself is very good.

      Comments about bareMinerals Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15, Fairly Light (N10), .28 oz:

      I use this product in conjunction with the bare minerals light foundation. I use a blend of the two when doing my makeup. I have fair skin and always fall some where in between colors, so blending the fairly light and the light helps give me a very natural look. It also does not break my skin out which is why I started using it in the first place, and is very light so you don't have that caked on makeup feel.

          Comments about bareMinerals Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15, Fairly Light (N10), .28 oz:

          Love this make up but the price is so high, I got it at 20% off which made a HUGE difference to me! I like how it gives me a light shimmer to reflect light and makes me feel pretty. You can use it alone for a quick light finish or over a tinted moisturized/concealer for a full coverage effect. The only complaint I have....(bummer!) is that this make up makes my face itch when I am out in the heat. It's perfect for the beach because it's light and fresh yet.....it itches so badly when I hit the heat outside in the sunlight! I have gotten a little used to it because I force myself to wear it outside in the summer, but it would be SO NICE if it didn't itch.

            Comments about bareMinerals Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15, Fairly Light (N10), .28 oz:

            This make-up is truly incredible. It gives a natural glow that is not too shiny nor too matte. I have acne prone skin with some scarring. Before trying this make-up, I didn't think powder would stand a chance at covering up my blemishes. But this make-up is the best foundation, concealer, and power all rolled into one amazing product. One pot will last for a year. With it's long shelf life and many uses, this product is a very worthwhile investment. I use a big, fluffy, kabuki blush to buff the power all over my face. It takes some time to learn how much powder is needed. With the right technique, this make-up gives an airbrushed quality that softens all imperfections and gives an even complexion. Then I use a smaller, denser concealer blush to pat on more powder over blemishes, undereye circles, and other problem areas. I use a paitning motion for lighter coverage, and a patting motion for heavier coverage. It can conceal anything. One thing to note, this make-up does not apply well to greasy or dry skin. If you use too heavy of a moisturizer, the make-up will stick to it and look cakey. If your skin is too dry, the make-up will emphasize flakiness. So you need to use a lightweight, non-greasy moisturizer before you apply the make-up. (I like Neutrogena's Combination face moisturizer.) Lastly, I have fair skin but it's definitely not porcelain fair. Fairly Light matches me perfectly in the winter, and is just ever so slightly too light in the summer. (I darken it up with some of BE's Warmth All Over Face Color.) Overall, it's a truly incredible and worthwhile product.

              I love this and have used it for years. It's not heavy, easy to apply and if you forget to take it off at night it doesn't cause breakouts. Already has sunscreen in it for the summer, one of my favorite parts! I love this product!

                Someone recently suggested I try Bare Minerals and I have to say I was very skeptical. After years of using a liquid foundation, I couldn't imagine that a powder would be any good. I started by getting a small kit of samples. I was impressed with the coverage I got using a bit of concealer and the foundation then topping it off with the mineral veiil and blush. It doesn't feel like I have paste on my skin, I definitely have fewer breakouts, and even though it is poweder, I don't look like a ghost in photos, like some brands. On the downside, I find that, despite the new packaging (with a sifter top), I end up with powder all over the place. And when I am down to only a little bit in the container, I can't seem to pop off the sifter as I've heard that others do. So I lose a small amount of product in each container. Otherwise, I would suggest trying it.

                  Both my daughter and I use this product and I only wish we had found it sooner though now we have been using it for years after trying all other forms of foundation. Appears very natural, we both get many compliments on our skin - I am in my 60's and she in in her 20's so I would recommend it to everyone. Be sure to use a moisturizer first. The only thing I REALLY dislike about the product, even with the new twist cap feature,is that it STILL gets powder all over the bathroom. Any ideas about that?
