I don't think it's too dark for fair skin, my skin is fair too. Just use sparingly until you get the right shade. I found "warmth" to be too much color. The tinted Veil is really nice. Hope this helps

I use Fair foundation in the winter and use regular mineral veil during that season. As I see more sun in the spring I switch to tinted mineral veil or mix the two. My foundation color is Fairly light to Light in peak tan season. I don't get really dark compared to other people, but dark for me. I don't think you would want to use the tinted mineral veil in the winter months though.

I have pale skin, and while the tinted color looks really dark in the container, I think it looks great when you put it on. It's definitely a summer look b/c it does make you look a bit tan - but I don't think it's too dark on me or fake-looking - it just looks like a nice, natural glow.

Use the sheer formula rather than the tinted formula. Even though I have an olive complexion, the tinted formula is too "orang-y" for me (too "umpah loompa, if you know what I mean).

It's not a primer- it works over your moisturizer, foundation or primer. That's what I was told in the store. If you put it on before moisturizing your skin it would probably feel just really dry. The untinted formula is great. It just blends right in with your skin tone, leaving a soft, matte-like (but not dry) finish to your face

I live in Oregon, where the sun rarely shines, I travel to the sun as much as possible. I find that mineral veil alone is not enough when tanning or when in and out of water. If I'm just around town dashing to and from my car I wear spf foundation and spf mineral veil. If I'm tanning, swimming or boating. I use a lotion with a higher spf and apply my foundation and mineral veil over it. I may be over doing it, but skin cancer runs in my family and I'm usually pastey white the first few days in the sun. (Sorry can't give up my tan completely even with cancer risk. Bad I know.)

Yes, you can, but not if you are swimming or too sweaty. If I am going to be outside all day, I use an SPF 40 suncreen underneath and the bareMinerals foundation and SPF 25 Mineral Veil on top. Also, I wear a hap or visor when possible. If you want to reapply the bareMinerals SPF 25 Mineral Veil, I would suggest blotting the skin with blotting paper and then reapplying bareMinerals SPF 25 Mineral Veil.

YES - it is a great touch up product BUT it isn't the most portable. The SPF is fantastic and will not mess up your make-up when applied through out the day.
Depending on your skin tone - pale/fair -medium use the original. The tinted could be used as a light bronzer so it is more suitable if you are already a bit tanned or if you lean more towards the medium -medium dark, dark skin tone.

SPF MV is not the matte finish MV, but I have not noticed any shine when using this product. There is another that has some pearlescent or opalescent material that does give a slight glow or shine.

Mineral Veil is not a bronzer and has no color. It is sheer. The B. E. product you would want that gives a bronze color is called Warmth. You would then seal Warmth with your Mineral Veil. Mineral Veil will offer sheer protection for your makeup and will add SPF to protect your skin.

It has a sheer effect, so it would work as a sheer bronzer, but I would use the overall cheek colors instead. They are more saturated. I don't wear the tan mineral veil, I wear the original, but it provides a light weight sheer powder that helps blot oil and reduce shine. It "finishes" my foundation/bronzer/blush layers and helps them set.
