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

Medium Tan - For medium-to-tan skin with rosy 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've been using BE foundation for several years now and wouldn't be without it. I've never even strayed to test any other mineral foundations or any foundation since finding BE. My skin issues are oiliness and uneven skin tone. BE takes care of both issues. And, the longer I have BE on, the more luminous my skin becomes. It provides just enough coverage to even out my skin tone. And, it lasts a long time. Less is best with BE. Another plus is that it doesn't contain all those questionable ingredients. Love it!

      IF you don't watch yourself, you may spill it on your cabinet top and then it has to be washed off.

                  Big fan of the bareMinerals line, but this particular shade turns out much darker than I anticipated. I use it now as a bronzer instead of a foundation and that works out well.

                  I've been using Bare Minerals for several years and it is the best makeup I have ever used. It really looks so natural that friends have told me that it looks like I use no makeup at all. It is a little bit more expensive than some of the newer products out there, but it is really worth it.
