Quite the Surprise

Phrases Chosen: beautiful
I was very excited to try my Ready SPF 20 Foundation. The foundation does an excellent job of covering my skin, but still manages to have that light airy feel I like in make up. The foundation also covers just as well as my regular bare minerals make up. Some things to note - the minerals are more compacted so I have noticed I get a fuller coverage with this make up, but like usual this can be changed via brushes. My favorite aspect is the compact case. When I have time to do my make up, I use the bare minerals regular foundation. I enjoy being able to choose how much coverage I want. However if I am on the run, need a touch up, or am going to be somewhere where I won't have be able to sit down with my make up and brushes, this is a quick and easy option that never fails! I love it!

A Perfect choice!

Phrases Chosen: perfect for starting out!
I chose the Customizable Get Started Kit over the Get Started Kit because it comes with only one foundation. My skin is the lightest color and I knew getting a second medium foundation that wasn't my color would be wasteful. This was the perfect kit for me. With the three brushes, the three make ups and the cleanser, I was able to get the perfect start that I could afford as a college student. Now I have a list of what products I want to try next and I will already have the brushes for several of those. A great choice for starting out!

I've been watching the Bare Minerals advertisements sense they first came out on TV. I finally bought myself some for Student Teaching this spring, and I love it! I have always been one to like makeup that is light, and went through several types of liquid makeup hating it. When I tried minerals and powders, they never stayed on. If I touched my face, I could feel the powder come off on my fingers. With Bare Minerals, I never have this problem. I applied the makeup at 8 am and by 5 pm my skin still has the silky smooth feel. I don't feel weighed down by this makeup and I can already tell I'm hooked. I also love that all products are SPF 15 which is important for my fair complection. As for the Matte vs Luminous, I am going to be keeping both on hand for days when I'm more apt to have oily skin or not. But, for days when I'm stressed and know my skin may be oily, the Matte holds up to the test. Which is impressive for my skin!

I have tried several make up brands, moisturizers, and the like over the years. I have a particular problem of having my make up stay in place throughout the day due to my sometimes oily skin. The Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer is great because I can wear it on special events, or days I know I'm going to be more stressed (which can make my skin more oily) and my Bare Minerals, which already holds up amazingly, lasts just the extra step. It doesn't take much, so I already know this bottle is going to last a long time. I love it!

Questions
 
When to Apply
I purchased this product this winter because one day while putting on my makeup before work I noticed how dry and tired my skin looked. I have only been using this moisturizer for a week and I absolutely love it! I can certainly see a difference in my skin. However, I'm trying to figure out how to apply it in relation to the bare minerals foundation. Before I was using the prime-time primer, then applying my makeup. Now I notice that if I put on the moisturizer, it needs time to soak in before putting on the makeup. What is the best method for applying moisturizer - primer - makeup, and do I need to use the prime-time primer with it? If I don't, when do I decide which to use and not to use?

Would the original foundation fix my oily skin problem?
I went to a BE outlet before trying any products. I was interested in the Matte foundation originally, but the sales girl told me to use the original to "fix" the problem rather than cover it up. My skin is extremely light, fare color is the only color I've found that can match... which is why I have to spend a little more than I'd like to on foundation. I bought the starter kit with the original foundation, and I love it, I am due for a new one. Is what the sales girl told me true? I may have seen results but I am not sure if the results were specifically for oil! I plan to buy the original again, because I feel like it looks natural either way, but I do wonder!!
I am currently using the matte foundation and I find it works really well. I have combination oily skin that can be oily one day and normal the next. My skin is also very fair and so problems stand out strongly. I think that the matte make up has also worked to diminish some of my problems. One thing I would suggest is with extra oily skin buying the oil control primer. I love it, and on days I know where I may be stressed and have oily skin this keeps it all under control. I do want to purchase the original some day. With my skin I have a tendency to go back and forth for what works best for what day. But what I like about BM is the make up is good for my skin regardless.

What is the suggested application of this product?
Is a brush used? Is it dabbed with a finger? I haven't found instructions for application.
I applied mine the same way I apply moisturizer. A small pump onto my ring finger then dab on the main points of my face before spreading over the skin.
