Question
Can I wear it over liquid foundation? Is it good for touch ups?
I am currently using makeup forever's HD liquid foundation and I do find that my skin get oily though out the day. I would like something that will make my skin flawless over my liquid foundation and sometimes my makeup wears off in the oily areas so can I use this though out the day to do some touch ups?

I dab liquid foundation/concealer underneath my eyes & on other problem areas then blend the bare minerals foundation over the top. This actually works quite well as long as you don't use too much powder because then it can start to look cakey.

Yes, I carry the travel size with me and use it to touch up. I also use liquid foundation but only on parts of my face that need it (nose, cheeks) and use BE over the rest. This works better than using primer (less creasing), I have oily skin and it last longer.

I agree with all the statements above: You probably COULD wear it over your liquid foundation, but I would try it on its own first. I was AMAZED at the fact that this seemingly sheer powder not only covered AS WELL AS some really excellent liquid foundations, but BETTER. And it looks like I have no foundation on at all while it does it! I learned that if I really used the concealer brush as liberally as I needed to, and then blended that in very well with the rest of the powder/BE mineral foundation, almost every mark can be "disappeared" and still look totally natural.

If using the brush alone (buy the concealor brush! It's worth it!)
If putting layers on with the concealer brush DRY dosn't do it, the wet the brush for even more complete coverage.

I think skin gets greasy because we take to much of the natural oils- such as using harsh chemicals and scrubbing too much, take some fish oil supplements, it will work wonders on your skin! I can only suggest using products without chemicals- I think bare minerals would work on top as a touch up if you used the concealer brush on the spots that you say your makeup has worn off.

I've tried BE over liquid foundations before, it definitely didn't do either makeup justice.
The BE will last all day by itself and everything in the line is made to layer on in an order and stay put and not blotch.
I do use other skin care products underneath *Perricone*, but do not mix any other makeup with the BE so that it can do what it says. It always looks natural and doesn't run off my face like the liquids did.

I also use a liquid foundation-Laura Geller's Phenomenal Liquid Foundation in medium and I have oily skin. I then lightly apply BE matte foundation as a finishing powder which gives me good, uniform coverage. If I want a more flawless look, I lightly apply over the BE matte Laura Geller's Balance-N-Brighten foundation powder or Make Up Forever's foundation powder (I use these as finishing powders). Then, for a super flawless look, I apply a very, very light dusting of Make Up Forever's HD finishing powder (this is their translucent, looks white in the package, finishing powder; don't apply too much of this). I find that by lightly layering the different products, I get that flawless look everyone is trying to achieve. I have to use multiple products, because of uneven skin tone, dark circles under eyes, some sun damage dark spots, etc. If you apply lightly, it doesn't feel heavy over the liquid foundation, especially Laura Geller's liquid foundation which has a light feel when applied.

If you use this instead of liquid foundation, you will never use liquid again! It took me a while to really believe this, but it is true. If you moisturize and prime your skin before you apply this BEscen product, you will not get oily, won't need to touch up, and will love your look.

I think you could wear it over liquid foundation, however, I found that I didn't need any other foundation when I started using bareMinerals. BareMinerals gives the same coverage as any liquid foundation, but I have found the coverage is more even and natural. I haven't noticed a more matte finish with this foundation than the regular bareMinerals foundation, but my skin doesn't get as oily with bareMinerals as it did with liquid foundations. When I do have oily spots throughout the day, I use oil-blotting sheets or even just a kleenex to blot the oil and my make-up stays put.

I have been using Bare Minerals since they started. I switched from Original to Matte as soon as it came out. I love both, but Matte gives me a more natural look. When I'm using Matte I tend to have slightly dryer skin like you said. But I only found that Primer (I've tried all kinds) makes me dryer! And the BE Moisturizer gave my skin a horrible reaction.

I would use lotion under the foundation. I use Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion, It's fragrence free. They even have one specifically for your face that is SPF 15. This lotion was recommended to me from my dermatologist. I used to have bad acne, since I switched to using Cetaphil as a face wash and lotion, and started using Bare Minerals I haven't had any break outs. It's been 4 years! You'll need to wait awhile for the lotion to soak so you have a good surface, but my I found that it is the only thing that keeps my skin from going dry!! And the Bare Minerals goes over great.

This foundation is very drying! I have been using it since it came out and love it, but find that it is very drying in the colder months. Tried switching to duo mat by makeup for ever but that broke me out horribly. I am trying a more moisturizing moisturizer and primer. This foundation is formulated to constantly turn over dead surface skin cells, which can dry you out in dryer, colder climates (winter months!) Also, you could switch to normal foundation just for winter months and pair with an oil absorbing powder for your oily spots...I use makeup for ever HD microfinishing powder in oily spots. Another thing you might try is a tinted moisturizer first so that you don't have to use much of the bm matte...could just use it to conceal over spots as needed that weren't covered by the tinted moisturizer. This is the best foundation out there, but it is drying! (and I have the OILIEST skin ever!)

I had the same problem before, and this will sound crazy but I came across this natural skincare blog about oilve oil and how it is the same as the natural oil in our skin. anyway, I massage olive oil on my skin, and put a warm cloth over my face and press down gently until the cloth is cool. then I gently and firmly wipe off the oil in circular motions until it doesnt feel greasy. then I follow with apple cider vinegar, which removes any dead cells, is also very effective in germ killing power and anti-acne. It also helps exfoliate. anyway I then get about two small drops of oilve oil in my palm, rub together and press on my face. blot the excess and wait about five min then apply makeup. It has worked well for me and I do not break out either. I have always had clear skin, and never had used soap or cleansers but had flaky and dry skin- the one time I actually tried using facial cleansers i broke out terribly. I am 33 almost 34 years old and people think I am in my early twenties, so I guess natural skincare is the way to go! hope this helps you!

You will need to find a oil free moisturizer to apply before you apply your matte foundation. It seems the foundation is drying out your skin too much. You need to add some moisture, without producing too much oil.

I have oily skin and I will tell you what I have been using for many years. I use Clinique Clarifying Lotion #4 (this is the strongest formulation which controls my breakouts; there are less strong formulations). After that dries, I apply Laura Geller"s moisturizing lotion with SPF30. I don't use a primer because Geller's lotion seems to prep my skin in a way that allows foundation to go on really well. However, Geller"s primer, called Spackle, is good, but I think it contains silicone. I use this sometimes over the lotion. Then I apply either BE matte foundation, or Geller's liquid foundation, depending on how I feel that day. If I use the liquid foundation, I apply the BE as a finishing powder. Other good finishing powders include BE's mineral veil, Laura Geller's Balance-N-Brighten, and Make Up Forever's HD finishing powder.

Please note: it is not possible to actually shrink your pores. A good product can reduce the APPEARANCE of large pores, but this will not actually change their size; it can't. The appearance of pores is largely related to age, heredity, genetics, etc. You can reduce the prominence of your pores by exfoliating, using products to treat excess oil and by using foundations that deliver a flawless finish. This one IS effective, so your pores will appear smaller (they just won't shrink).

Depending on your skin type it can reduce the appearance of pores. BUT some who have oily skin have claimed in the past that they found this product to make pores more visable. I do think you can either use the BE Primer to help give you a nice base to help with that OR try using the Mineral Veil first. By using buffing on the Mineral Veil first over your moisturizer and then buffing on the foundation it can really help disguise your pores effectively. Be sure that you are using a good gentle facial scrub to help release dead skin cells that may be sitting on the surface. By doing that you will allow new skin cells to show will add your skin's healthy glow. Also helping to diminish your pores size.

I find the Fairly Light oxidizes into a TERRIBLE orange color on my very fair skin. My skin doesn't tan and I have a bit of redness.

I was given the Fairly Light by a Sales Associate, and I knew right away that it was the wrong shade. Unfortunately, I didn't know at the time about Sephora's awesome return policy and I've stuck out with it painfully. And it's almost gone now, thank goodness. Because it looks so, so terrible on me. I look like an oompa loompa after about an hour. I wish I was joking.

I use "Fair" because I have very fair skin with pink undertones. I tried both and "fairly light" looked a little unnatural on me because it's for someone who has very fair skin with gold undertones. So it's really a matter of if your daughter's fair skin is more pinkish (like Nicole Kidman) or more golden (like Gweneth Paltrow). Hope this helps!

Active Soil is the same active component in Rare Minerals that was added to the bareMinerals Matte Foundation. It creates staying power in humid situations & is good for your skin. It naturally controls bad bacterial oils & sweat from creating breakouts on skin. Use the Shade Fair if you have alibaster white skin & do not tan. Use the shade Fairly Light if you have dark hair & eyes, and your skin tans during the summer.

answer 9
What I've found is that with most of these colors, unless you REALLY have a "golden undertone" the best color to go with is the NEUTRAL undertone. For example, in my test kit I had Medium and Medium Beige. I have neutral undertones, not golden ones. With Med Beige, I ended up looking "yellow". My correct color is Medium.

Also be aware that you may be able to wear a color darker than you figured. I was shocked when I had the makeup applied in the store that I could wear a color that appeared SO dark in the container (I'd have sworn I was also "fair" or "fairly light"). But, because it goes on so lightly, it blends well and does not leave lines like regular foundation does.

If you still have doubts, try purchasing the get started kit, which comes with both fair and fairly light in it and let HER choose which looks better.

Hi! I have been using BE for 8 years. For 7 of those, I bought fair because I'm pasty, pasty white. I was so wrong!!! I got a kit from QVC last year... they'd sold out of the fair so I got fairly light. My tone is kind of a really light peachy color but in no way does that not mean super pale. I have roseacea, too, and this matte formulation is absolutely fabulous... it covers completely without having to put on more product than a person without roseacea would have to. I still use the fair foundation that I have sometimes. I even mix it with a tinted mineral veil that I got stuck with in a kit, too, to tone that down. You likely won't make a mistake regardless of which color you buy. Most BE girls that I know have found that it's better for them to have 2 different, but similar shades anyway, because of the changes in the seasons. It's fine to mix the foundation colors to come up with a new one! Hope this helps!

The BE Matte formula makes the claim that the formula is enriched with 100% pure RareMinerals ActiveSoil Complex, a proprietary ingredient that minimizes pores and promotes cell turnover for fresher, smoother skin, while protecting your skin from environmental damage. Matte doesn’t contain bismuth oxychloride, which is what gives the original its sheen. It also gives a visible sheen to the makeup, so it's good at refracting light and that helps draw attention away from, and camouflage, fine lines, wrinkles and minor discolorations. Bismuth oxychloride is an inorganic white pigment, and usually comes in two forms: diamond and pearl finishes. Some people are higly sensitve to this ingredient and can become red or experience dry red patches. For those who do have this allergy or reaction, the Matte formula is for you.

I think the Matte formula is less irritating than the original was. While the original foundation is all natural there are some ingredients (or so I've heard) that can irritate the most sensitive skin. I've heard people say the original foundation left their skin feeling slightly itchy. The original formula also has a slight sheen I've found when used on my face.
The Matte formula apparently does not irritate like the original did to some faces and it really absorbs oil better. The skin is not left with a shiny finish after use and it really holds up on the face.

The matte Spf 15 is better for controlling excess oil on the face without drying it. Of course if you have really oily or sweaty skin it will be less effective, but it does do a better job than the original loose powder at mattifying. It isn't as effective in coverage however, so you might be spending more time on covering a blemish with it. I would still use the mineral veil with it because that helps it better match your skin's natural tone.

Yes, this product does rub off on clothes. This is especially true when you get sweaty or oily throughout the day. If my skin is completely dry, it doesn't rub off much, but I am always careful, especially when I wear white or black.

Unfortunately, it does if you are pulling a top over your head after you have applied it. If you spill some loose powder on your clothes though, it will just brush off.

It doesn't rub off on clothes unless you sweat ALOT, but even then it doesn't streak or run. It will only rub off on clothes if you literally rub your wet face with your clothes.

It works pretty well, helps me control how much powder I tap into the cover.

The new click, lock and go component is different from the regular container, but it doesn't come on the sample size. You just need to tap a little bit on the lid so that you don't make a mess and can lock it back up. Then if you need to take it with you, there's no mess.

The click and lock isn't available in the sample version, but it's wonderful on the full size version. It definitely keeps me from making a mess and wasting this powder.

The sample does not have the sifter. The full-sized products does have it and it works wonderfully. Just be careful when using it, cause it can give you more product then you want.

Takes extra time to keep shaking out a little more.
