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

Light - For light skin with yellow-olive 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.

I have been wearing this makeup every day (without fail) for over 3 (or 4?) years. I tried so many different kinds of make-up for daily use over the years, and this is just the best all-around product i've found. It has pretty decent coverage and since it's a powder foundation it's incredibly easy to apply...it's almost impossible to screw it up! My skin tends to be oily in the summer and dry in the winter and, with the proper seasonal skin care regime, i am able to wear this foundation 365 days a year. I will say, though, that while it is really great for a natural day-time look, sometimes you need a little extra oomph with pigment at night.

I don't get all the hype with this foundation. I wish I liked it. It's horrible though. Buffing on your makeup takes a lot longer than using a foundation brush (what I normally do) and I also thought the package was a little messy and seemed like it'd be a great environment for germs since you're using the lid to apply the powder to your brush. Even worse - it made me breakout, tended to look greasy or absent halfway through the day, and made me look older since it settles into every little line (and I'm only 24!).

      I've used bareMinerals foundation for more than 10 years. I've tried other mineral foundations and I always come back to bareMinerals. My technique is to use a tiny amount and buff all over my face and then add just a bit more to buff over areas where I need more coverage.

        Comments about bareMinerals Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15, Light (W15), .28 oz:

        I use this product in conjunction with the bare minerals fairly 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.

                        I like that these products don't cause congested skin, but I recently purchased the 'fairly light,' and I want to warn those with pale ivory skin that this color is too dark and yellow, which makes it impossible to apply for spot coverage without looking patchy and obvious.
