Summer Perfect

Pros: perfect for summer, light, just enough coverage, exactly what i was looking for
I live in Florida and wanted my skin to look healthy and moist, not powdered. I wear only the mineral veil and have always avoided foundation so i was very hesitant. This product has no fragrance which i consider positive. It is almost scentless and i dont consider the smell offensive in the least. After reading reviews, i decided purchasing the brush was a must. The mineral veil smudges so i have to buy a setting spray. To avoid the same issue with the foundation, i bought the brightening primer (hesitant once again to introduce another layer of make up). LOVE IT! The primer, application brush, and foundation work great together and achieve EXACTLY the look i was going for.
1 drop of the primer is plenty but i have been using 4 drops of foundation (2 drops, 2 applications).

Do you apply the luminizer at the end of your makeup routine or after foundation?
Would you apply it after blush, or after the foundation, mineral veil, and warmth?
I apply it after mineral veil and blush so the luminizer slightly blends the two above my cheek bones. I also use it as eye shadow.

What am I doing wrong? It's just not flawless for me?
I am a true believer in Bare Minerals. I love this make-up! With that being said I have "complicated skin" its classified as oily, I have mild rosacea so my cheeks tend to be dryer than the rest of my face. I used to use the oil control primer. That didn't seem to work so I went back to the original primer. I just bought the BareSkin foundation got color matched at my local supplier and I bought the brush the whole nine yards. I love the way this foundation feels but accentuates my dry areas and doesn't help with looking seperated on my face after a day. I only use 2 to 3 drops for my whole face for the coverage. I don't know what I am doing wrong it is almost as if it is melting off my face. If i touch my face throughout the day it comes off. ( also I must add that I did get samples of this product before I bought it , it didn't do this with the samples, and i used a different BM brush then the one that they recommended you use with this product) Please HELP !! I hate to waste all this $$$!
I did see a lot of bad reviews from people with problem or sensitive skin. I also noticed the best reviews always mentioned using the BM brush which is why i decided it was necessary to purchase. I have always had a problem with BM smudging off easily. The Urban Decay setting spray works wonders for the bare minerals and maybe it will work for the foundation as well.
