I have brown eyes and medium beige skin. I found that the green and skyline shades that are non-shimmery work well with a shimmery shade that's close to your skin color. Then you can customize the hues and use the same basic shades for both day and night. The shimmery shades in other colors can be a bit too bright for work, depending on what your work environment is like. But they also are quite nice looking for evenings.

I have the same coloring and am very happy with the grays all the way to the light purples. Going with a "glimmer" is always a safe bet.
Right now my favorite is Pacific Heights. It is a soft lavender and looks delicious.
For a really natural, bare and pretty look the browns actually turn out nicely as well.

Try Nude Beach from lash line to brow and contour with Mermaid. My daughter uses this color combo with stunning results. Bali and Sandcastle are also good together.

How long does the eye shadow last once it is open?
I purchased some Bare Minerals shadows that I don't use very often. I do keep the lid on. How long should they last once they are open?

I read a study about stabilities (sorry don't remember who wrote it) but for makeup it said: mascara lasts 3 months, cream makeup lasts 6 months, pressed powders last a year (as long as you keep them clean. Use an alcohol swab and rub over the top layer occasionally) and loose powders can last well over a year, the length of time depending on how careful you are with them. I hate to throw away good makeup, but if I haven't used something in a very long time I toss it just to be safe--and to make room for new stuff!!

They last a very long time. I have a Bare Minerals blush that I've been using for 5 and a half years! They keep better than most make-up.

I have had mine forever it seems and they last so well. I think it's because it is all makeup and no fillers to hold the pressed powder together. Plus I don't have to reapply at the end of the day if I'm going out. Still looks great. I know I've had my two favorite shadows at least 3 months maybe more, I can't remember exactly when I bought them.

high shine gold medal?
I got 'high shine gold medal' eye shadow (loose powder) in a kit and loved it. I can't find it now. Is there anything similar? Should Iget the glimmer, glimpse, or high shine that comes in a tube? I don't want the shadow that has acutal glitter in it. thanks.

Try True Gold. Not sure how close it would be to your other color, but it is a sparkly gold without huge flakes of glitter. Trophy Wife (would have to check BE site) might be another. Was out for the holidays, so don't know if it's still around.

I think the tube one will probably be closest. It does not have actual glitter in it, but it is like liquid metal--very shiny. BTW, not great if you have any "crepeyness" or small wrinkles. If you have young eyes, go for it.

I've had varying experiences using BE shadows with and without primer. The colors look great either way, but the staying power differs. Some colors stay with primer, some don't. So verdict is, for lasting power, use primer.

Works fine without, but works great with. I use the primer everyday and I never have to touch up my eyes all day long. Even after a day at the beach most of it held on through swimming.

Question
I want something MATTE for an all-over base.
Can someone please recommend a good base shadow that doesn't shine and shimmer? I love BE colors the best, but all the ones I've tried have a sheen to them. I need something very low-key to wear in a medical setting--no bling allowed.

My favorite is Vanilla Sugar. I can use it as a highlighter for my brow bone, all over base color, or alone as the lid color when I want a no make-up look. Completely matte, no shimmer at all. If that shade doesn't work on your skin tone, you could also try Soul, Pebble, or Patience. The BE site lists whether the colors are matte or not in their descriptions, so you could check there on the shimmer levels of the colors you like here. Good news is there ARE BE shadows without sparkles and occasionally the kits come with some too (like the Pretty Wild set).

Of the BE eyecolors sold by Sephora, these are matte (no shimmer or shine at all): Camp, Cashmere, Nob Hill, Passionate Plum, Pacific Heights, Patience, Pebble, Snow, and Vanilla Sugar. (Angel is also matte, but it's probably bolder than you'd want to wear in a medical setting)

I've found two that are similar: Nude beach (but has a bit of a pinkish undertone) and Queen Phyllis (with a bit of a golden tone). Celestine is good, too (and more neutral), but may be just a tiny bit darker. All of those are "glimmers". Hope this helps.

While I have green eyes, I've used my Bare Minerals Eyecolors many times on a friend with hazel eyes. After priming, I use a base (from lids to brow bone) of "Queen Phyllis" (for a warmer look), "Celestine" (more neutral), or "Nude Beach" (for a cooler look). For contouring, I use "Soirée" (warm), "S-x Kitten" (neutral/warm), "Drama" (neutral), or a light touch of "Soul Sister" (cool). My favorite combination for her is using a base of "Queen Phyllis", contoured with "Soirée", and blended together on lids with a light touch of "True Gold". This shimmery warm look is amazing, really making her hazel eyes pop! I hope this was at least somewhat helpful. :-)

When I first started using Bare Minerals shadows, I'd never used powder shadow before. It takes some getting used to, but the results are worth the learning curve. After years of using these now, I've found a few things help minimize the "fall-out" factor. First, Before opening the container, I tip it upside down a couple of times then tap the lid (while right-side up!) a couple of times. This makes a small amount of product stick to the lid and that is where I dip my brush for application. Don't make the mistake of dunking your brush into the full container. This causes your brush to pick up far too much product, leading to "fall-out" and a lot of waste. Also, like someone else said, tap your brush against the lid to shake off excess product before applying. Everyone who has said these small containers last forever is absolutely right! With these, a little goes a long way - you get a lot of color payoff using very little product - so even the mini shadows you get in gift sets will last a really long time. Another helpful tip - I've found that if you use a good primer along with quality brushes (and this brand has great brushes!), this tends to help lessen the amount of "fall-out" on your face, and of course, helps it stay put all day without creasing - though, honestly, even without priming this product has great staying power on its own. Hope this was helpful. :-)

It is loose, and yes, it can. You can minimize this by carefully tapping the excess on your applicator along the edge of the case before raising it up to your face. There will also be less excess on the applicator if you use a sponge-tip applicator instead of a brush. After applying, use a face brush and gently brush the "droppings" off your face. Your powder or foundation should naturally give you a bit of a resistance to the color sticking, as long as you brush it off very lightly with a brush (not your finger) and don't crush the particles into your skin. It can be a mess, I admit, but some of the colors are so worth it!
