Phrases Chosen: yes wonderful for aging skin !!!!
I am 60 years old and stayed away from mineral makeup because I read reviews regarding mineral powder settling into fine lines and wrinkles, which I have an abundance of .
If you are in this age group, pleeeeease go to a Bare Escentuals boutique and have
a demonstrator show you how to apply this makeup properly; then wear it for a day.. I guarantee you will be back. I went into the store with my 29 yr. old daughter who has been wearing BM for 4 years; I always compliment her skin and she kept urging me to try BM foundations. Once in the store I decided to give it a go. The wonderful sales person took her time and showed me all the steps. As I walked around the mall all afternoon, I kept checking my face in every available mirror, and loving the results. This foundation does not settle in your lines, nor does it leave that awful jawline demarkation mark, nor does it feel heavy and make you aware that you are covered with a layer of ecru tinted
smear which ends up all over your IPhone 5. Bare Minerals is FLAWLESS; you don't feel as if you have makeup on at all !!! Yet I have great coverage, even over the brown spots.
I was using the best possible foundation ( $80) and I've tossed it.
BM feels so much better on my skin. I sat outside on Easter Sunday, in full sun, and
no smearing or running of makeup for once, such a good feeling.
I have been getting compliments for the past 2 weeks and people are asking me what
I've done, this has never happened to me before. I think the combination of wearing the right color foundation, applying the makeup as subtly as I was shown, and buffing it
into creaminess has made such a difference.
It is essential to go to a boutique and be shown the correct method. I had one previous
experience with BM in a beauty supply type shop and I was not impressed, simply because the foundation was applied like blush, and I didn't get the proper results.
This makeup is beneficial and absolutely perfect for aging skin, I am so happy
I finally tried it.

How do I prevent the foundation from settling into wrinkles and accentuating them?
Original loose foundation.
I am 60 yrs. old and have MANY wrinkles. I find BM foundation Original Formula does NOT settle into the lines as aggressively as many liquid foundations. Liquids appear not
to settle in at first; the initial application appears to glide over fine lines. But check your face later in the day; this was a source of constant frustration to me; the liquid foundations gathered in the creases and I'd have to rub the color out of them.

FIrst rule: use the primer, don't skip this step, it fills in the lines and
prepares your face for the foundation.
Once you get your brush prepared with the powder, buff your BM powder foundation gently in a circular motion for at least 60 seconds,
going over and over the same spots; you should achieve beautiful results that last all day.
I have not changed my skincare routine at all, yet people are complimenting me constantly about the way my skin looks since I switched to Bare Minerals. This makeup has received some negative reviews regarding aging skin and I am writing to tell you it's all about the application. I was first shown how to use BM in a beauty store and the girl applied it
like blush, it looked awful. Once I was shown the circular buffing method the difference was incredible.

My wrinkles are not going away, I can live with that. But with Bare Minerals I don't have that over-made up look as many aging women do... I look natural and as I've been
told: "glowing".

I currently have fairly light foundation, and it makes my skin look like it's tinted a yellow-orange color.
What color do you think will look better on me? My complexion is light, but I don't like the fairly light color of foundation.
I have a light complexion also, but I used Medium Beige foundation and love it;
I told the sales person I preferred a warmer look and this is what she recommended.
