Get Shade Matched

Phrases Chosen: lovely, lasted all day, got many compliments
Just like the READY foundation, you need to get shade matched. I am so pale, I'm transparent. The BARE Porcelain is still just a tad too dark for me but it blends well. The key to making this foundation work is #1 Exfoliation. Ladies you must exfoliate regular as part of a good skin care routine or else everything just sits on top of the skin. #2 Primer. You must use a primer with this (especially if you have oily skin) to make this (or any foundation for that matter) to last all day. #3 Tools. You need to use the brush it was designed for. These lovely people took the time to create a tool that will make you love the makeup so you'll look beautiful and keep coming back for more. It works, buy the brush. #4 Shake it. Really, really shake it. It's in the directions, shake the heck out of it. #5. Be sure to blend it out (just like with any liquid makeup product) or it may settle around your nose (I use a clean fluffy brush around this area). Overall I like it. Love all of BE products!! PS several people complimented my complexion with this on. Oh yeah!

Love the Duos

Phrases Chosen: love the perfect storm, lovely color payoff, doesn't crease, good for your eyelids
I have a bunch of ready shadows. I have an 8.0, several Quads, and a few 2.0s. I love them all. The color pay off is nice, less mess than the loose (though I still love and use the loose), and travels nicely. The color payoff is great and lasts all day. Just bought the Perfect Storm and think it is a great neutral grey color duo. You just can't go wrong with Bare Minerals READY Shadows. A little goes a long way and all you need is a one soft tap and sweep on to build the color you want. They last forever and a day too. So you get way more than your money's worth. I'm addicted, lol. Hope you enjoy your purchase....I always love mine!

Phrases Chosen: soaks up oil
This is not like regular mineral veil. It goes on rather thick/caky if you go too heavy handed. You need the right brush for this also. You don't want to use a buki type brush or even the full flawless face brush. The regular flawless face brush will do or one of the sheer "heavenly" type brushes. A very little bit goes a long way. It doesn't give you the "air brushed" look like regular mineral veil does. It is very much for on the go "touch ups" that you made need during the day. If I was traveling, I'd take all my READY make-up but would also take my loose Mineral Veil (I'm using the Perfecting Light Mineral Veil right now.....can only get it at QVC). I'd recommend it for touch ups like the name of the product says but it is NOT a replacement for my regular Mineral Veil.

Phrases Chosen: doesn't raccoon, great brush
I typically don't like BE mascaras. This has always saddened me because I love everything else they make. I am extremely brand loyal and want all my makeup to come from one brand. I was talked into this at a boutique. I am happy they did! The brush is so different and cool. My lashes look great and the best part......NO RACCOON EYES at the end of the day!! This is the first BE mascara that lasted all day without flaking and migrating to under my eyes. This is a home run!!! A great mascara to try and fall in love with!

Love this as much as the Loose Blushes!!

Phrases Chosen: a little goes a long way, beautiful color, goes on awesome!
I LOVE the loose blushes. They last forever and ever and ever. I wanted to try the READY blushes because I travel a lot and the READY compacts take up less space in a travel bag. This blush is amazing. You tap the brush once and your cheeks get a great flush. I bought Aphrodisiac and it is a pretty color on my pale skin. It goes on beautifully and lasts all day on the cheeks. I expect the compact to last 6 months or so with everyday use and even longer if I mix it up with a cooler color for my winter looks. Try it and you'll love it!

Phrases Chosen: covers, creamy, light, blendable, doesn't take much
I have never liked the Bisque concealer. It never laid well on my face and I was way too pale to use it. I LOVE this concealer. It is creamy and it doesn't take much to cover. I recommend that you use the Max Coverage Concealer Brush instead of your fingers in the pot (it's more sanitary), and then blending with your ring finger. It drys almost instantly and then you follow with your favorite foundation (Bare Minerals of course!!!). Totally a great product and I expect the pot to last a few months. Good job BE!! =D

Phrases Chosen: light, creamy
I got this as a sample. I like this as a highlighter but not as any kind of concealer. If you need very light concealing this may work, but not any heavy concealing. Now as a highlighter it works amazing!! It is nice in the corner of the eye, on the brow bone, on the cheekbone. it has a nice luminous look to it. It's sheer and beautiful as a highlight. I would buy this.

Works Like It Says It Does

Phrases Chosen: wonderful, works
This works like it says it does. It's perfect to lengthen the time in between brush shampoos. It does have strong perfume to it, but that does not cling to the brushes. I wish it didn't have a scent though. I feel that people with allergies would not be able to use this product. But it cleanses the brushes amazingly! =D

Phrases Chosen: nice, it's a primer
The other Prime Times are clear, so when this came out a golden shade I was nervous. I am so pale I am almost colorless and seeing this shade was scary. It went on great, didn't look orange. I noticed a very slight luminous effect on my skin that may look better on a darker complected person. It primes just fine, as well as the original. I would buy it again, I like it.

Phrases Chosen: pretty, glowing, youthful
Each side is subtle but beautiful. Place it along the tops of your cheekbones, bridge of the nose, and center of the forehead and you look amazing! I used to use the lightest eyeshadows that BE makes, but no longer. This is perfect. Every time I wear this (which is everyday) I get a compliment with how amazing I look. It makes me look youthful, healthy, and glowing. I love it!! Please never stop making this!

Questions
 
Which red?
I am FAIR with pink tones to my skin with reddish hair and blue eyes. I want to try a red lipstick. What color do you think I should try? I was thinking the scarlet color because of the blue tones it would have, but I like the vibrant red of the cherry red color. Any advice ladies?

Does this raccoon as the day goes on?
I love almost everything BE makes ACCEPT their mascaras. I find they raccoon over the course of the day. Does this one? I tend to stick to a waterproof drugstore brand and I HATE that. I'm really brand loyal and want to use only BE products....however, I can't find a mascara I like that doesn't end up underneath my eyes in a horrid black smudge. Helpful hints or product suggestions??

Does is Raccoon??
I have tried most of the BE Mascaras and I find that all of them smudge and raccoon by the end of the day. This is frustrating because this is the absolutely ONLY item in my make up drawer that is not BE. I am very, very brand loyal and would love to buy my mascara from the wonderful people at Bare Escentuals. So.....does this smudge and raccoon? I work a 10 hour day in the public and don't want to look freakish and carry makeup remover with me 24/7!

Mineral Veil
Can this be used BEFORE applying makeup, as a base?
Yes, you can apply it before the foundation. I like to do this in the Summer months as an extra oil barrier.

Is this supposed to be used for a blusher and a highlighter?
I'm curious, because it would be great to luminize and blush at once.
No, this is way too subtle to be a blush. It would enhance your natural blush, but not be a blush.

How long will this foundation last?
I just want to know if this foundation will awhile like the other foundations do.
If you are asking how long the compact lasts, I've had mine 3 months and still have around a month of product left. A little goes a long way and it is a several month supply. It is very much the price you pay for it seeing how long it lasts. My fav foundation!

How does it work?
My little sister is beginning to use make up and she is CONSTANTLY stealing my mascara. I wanted to find her something that would be more age appropriate than Big Tease because she is just starting. I don't get how this mascara would work. I couldn't really tell from the picture. I guess I don't get the concept of a brushless mascara. Would this be a good choice?
This mascara is for the advanced makeup wearer. It is radically different than the traditional mascaras out there. It takes patience and skill to get this to work. Once you master it, the results are amazing. I would suggest a traditional mascara to start her out and then move on to the more advanced stuff.

Is this the best brush to apply mineral veil? Also, what brush would be best to apply warmth?
help with brush selection for particular products.....
I would not recommend the Handy Buki Brush to apply Mineral Veil. I would use the Flawless Face brush for MV. The Handy Buki is for full coverage which is what you need with the foundation. However, MV is just a sweep on your face to set your makeup and to also give you that "airbrushed" look. So you don't want a heavy hand or you will look "cakey" and that isn't good.

How often should I clean my brushes?
I want to get the maximum life out of my brushes. How often should I clean and/or replace them?
Your brushes can really last forever. I recommend that you clean them at least once a week. Use a gentle shampoo and conditioner. Also, never ever ever let anyone else use them. Your skin is precious and so easily damaged, don't let anyone touch the tools that touch your face. =D

 Face Shaping V Brush

Face Shaping V Brush
 
Can you tell me how this brush is to be used. What is the reason for the v?Do I buff with this brush like the other brushes?
How and where would the face shaping V be used? Can I use for both foundation, blush, veil?
The reason for the V is that it shapes to your cheek just right to give you color perfectly. It's more of a sweeping motion than a buffing motion that I use to get the perfect sweep of color. I use a tapered blush brush to give me color to just the apples of my cheeks and I use the Shaping V with a Radiance to give me a dewy look over the blush.

 Green Eyecolor - Faith
Green Eyecolor - Faith
For enviable eyes.
 
I'd really like to try your eyeshadows but don't know what would look good on me
I'm fair skinned, cool toned with rose undertones, have darkish brown hair and green eyes. My eyes really "pop" when I wear green. When I wear blue, they pull a little blue-green. I know that violet shades look good with green eyes, but I've also read that some greens/teals/seafoams/blues can really make them stand out as well. Right now I'm looking at Faith. I'd like to get a few "make my eyes stand out" colors that are not too out there and that I can wear to work, but I was also wondering about some neutral colors. I usually use MAC but I'd really like to try Bare Escentuals as I've heard great things. So, do you have any recommendations in the color families that I listed above? Also, do you have a good shadow primer for me and an eyeliner? Sorry this is so long.
I am extremely fair skinned with cool tones. I find that the Green tones make me look sick. I have blue eyes, so the blues don't look well on me either. However, BE is great about making eye make up that is buildable. Meaning you can go for a sheer look and build it to a full "foiled" look. So you can tweak how the shades look on you. Try purple tones for you eye color. Shauntung is an AMAZING color and try with Sugar Plum liner shadow to finish the look.
