I have always been insecure about under-eye darkness and spend most of my make-up regime just trying to fix that area. The Well-Rested powder is the best thing I have ever found!! It COVERS, it CONCEALS, it BRIGHTENS, it's AMAZING. This product wins the "Most Likely To Use Forevermore" award. Even if I no longer need concealer for blemishes or foundation for scars/spots, I would STILL use the well-rested brightener. Even if my circles disappear, it still brings a nice glow and shine to my eyes! Plus, it never drops into the creases and makes me look old like a liquid concealer would.
A MUST HAVE!

Pros and Cons

I bought this product last month with the intention of covering blemishes, scars, and dark under-eye circles. After using it for a few weeks I've made the following conclusion: The concealer works great on the scars and I'm stoked that the product helps fade these! It works to conceal SOME blemishes. Particularly red blemishes seem to stump the concealer completely. The worst place to use it is under the eyes. It doesn't cover as much as I'm used to with the well-rested powder, and it immediately brings out every crease and wrinkle - I'm only 22!! But It covers the blackheads on my nose GREAT and sometimes I find myself trying to apply it all over my face instead of just problem spots haha.
Overall, it's good for some areas and not others. I definitely will continue using it on my scars but I'll stick with the well-rested powder and use the concealer brush with my foundation for the other problem areas.

At first I said, why would you wear a shade to bed? But then I thought about it and realized that washing off my makeup and facing my guy was a source of stress every night! I brush this on and it covers everything. My face feels SO soft and clean. I've only used it for a week so I haven't seen the pore size reduction yet but I can't explain it, my face just feels so much better. It glows!

If I don't use Primetime under my foundation I get oily before I even get out of work. It's like a magic shield between my skin and makeup. Use it followed by mineral veil under your foundation and you won't get "dewey" at all!

I am curious as to the best order to use moisturizer, eye cream, foundation primer, and eye primer along with BM foundation and other beauty products?
I am new to Bare Minerals and I am trying to learn how to get the most from the products. I have very early signs of aging and would like to slow down the progress and make my skin look as young as possible using the entire line of products! Any advice you can give is helpful, especially the best order in which to use ALL of the products to have younger looking skin.
Although I'm concerned more with covering acne scars and oiliness as compared with aging skin, I do the following order:
Cleanser, Moisturizer, Eye Cream, Blemish Treatment, Primers, Mineral Veil, Foundation, Concealer, Mineral Veil again, Bronzer/Blush, Eyes, Lips. If I forget something or do a different order, it doesn't last me as long! At night I use cleanser, moisturizer, blemish treatment, and then Night Treatment.
