Phrases Chosen: perfect without the heavy make up feel
I gave up liquid makeup years ago when I switched to bare minerals powders. When BM came out with this and I received a sample my first thought was "ugh I refuse to go back to liquid makeup". I actually had this makeup for weeks sitting on my counter and one day decided to try it. I put 4 dots on the brush and kind of started in my problem areas first than went over my whole face. Let me say I LOVE THIS STUFF!! I would highly recommend using the brush, not your fingers. I've been using this for weeks now and my red splotchy areas aren't as obvious and I'm down to 3 dots on the brush now. I'm hooked! lol I let this makeup dry for a few minutes and than apply just a tiny bit of radiance & mineral veil mixed together, apply a little faux tan, a bit of blush, apply mascara and eyeliner and bit of gloss and I'm out the door.

I use this faithfully. I seldom used any type of creams or lotions on my face until just recently when my skin started "aging". I wish someone ANYONE would of told me about this skin regimine! I hate the feeling that my skin can't breathe so only when it was very dry outside would I use a popular drug store name face cream. I put this on everyday and I don't break out and my skin feels like it can breath but still feels nourished. I bought a deluxe size second set to make sure I don't run out.

I'm in my early 40's and my lashes arent as lush as they used to be. I've tried many drug store type mascaras. This mascara came in one of my Bare Mineral Makeup kits that I bought over the Thanksgiving holiday and I love it. I start as close as I can to my top lash base and do it several times. I have not had any problems with this mascara running or flaking. I wish it came in waterproof but hey we can't have it all!

I use this daily. I use the full coverage brush and apply to my areas that need a bit more coverage (under my eyes and chin area). I then use my kabuki brush and apply all over my face. I really recommend applying the primer first. Your brush will glide flawlessly over your skin. I will never go back to heavy liquids after finding Bare Minerals. Even my 22 yr old daughter is using Bare Minerals now!

I bought this concealer and it came with the full coverage brush. I was leery due to I have dark circles. I am really liking this concealer. It covers just right and it so easy to use. I apply it in a triangle shape under my eye and then apply my foundation. I am not old but not young so I'm in the process of trying to find products that dont make me look like i'm trying to hard to be young but then again do not want to look like a frump. I would recommend this concealer :)

I have always had to use concealer but as we all know our skin tends to not be as perfect as we age. For many years I wore liquid foundation, liquid concealers, ect. I decided about 2 yrs ago I was tired of so much makeup, being afraid my face would melt in the heat. I dedicided to try Bare Minerals. In the beginning I kind of used alot, it takes a little practice. I went from using more than a jar of foundation a month just because I was so used to layering on so much makeup. The first day I went to work a coworker said "wow! I can see the real you!" I've been hooked on Bare Minerals since I received that comment. I couldnt live without Well Rested, please never discontinue this. My morning ritual is I put a little redness remedy around my cheeks in small areas, I put a tiny amount of concealer, a little mascara, eyebrow shadow, a little powder liner on my bottom lashes, a few strokes of blush and my last step is I apply well rested in a triangle shape under my eyes and a tiny bit under the bridge of my nose. All my products are Bare Minerals and these past few months I get alot of people telling me I just look vibrant and instead of looking older I am looking younger! Thank you Bare Minerals! On days where I want to look a bit more made up I mix a little foundation powder and mineral veil and apply that lightly on my face before doing all the steps I mentioned above. Today I ordered the hydrating Mineral Veil with a peachy soft luminosity. I can't wait to get it in the mail.

I currently wear medium of the powder, but wonder if this would be better for my skin? I would like to look a little younger, not expecting miracles, but don't want those fine lines on my chin to be so obvious.
This will work, I'm at the age where I'm not old but not a youngster and I am beginning to get a few fine lines here and there. I worry about looking older in too heavy of a makeup but refuse to go totally makeup less. You can control the amount of coverage by how many dots you put on the brush and apply more where you have problem areas. By doing it that way it kind of helps to not apply so much in the fine line areas where any makeup tends to settle and make obvious.
Is the Bareminerals original and Ready foundation humidity and sweatproof?
This answer is important for individuals who live in warmer climates and/or workout frequently.
One of the main reasons I switched to Bare Minerals is due to that when the warmer weather started I dreaded my makeup melting off. With Bare Minerals my skin can breathe! Melt off or major just overall fade isn't a major issue in my life anymore.
What has better coverage: the SPF 20 concealer or the Well-Rested SPF 20 Eye Brightener?
I have dark circles and want to know which product is likely to work better for me. Super sensitive skin, too!
If you have light circles the powder well rested will work but if they are dark it will help but will not cover. My dad has dark circles and I inherited them. I used to use the stick type of concealer to cover them but with bare minerals a little goes a long way so if you have bad circles you could probably use a few dabs of the concealer and put well rested on top. That is what I do and it is not noticable at all. The well rested tends to brighten as opposed to actual concealing.
