I love this foundation! I tried the original one at first but I was a shiny mess, so I tried the matte and look so much better. I use the mineral veil as a primer, then I apply the matte foundation. I had to get used to it becuase it is not as much coverage as a liquid foundation but its easy to layer concealer using the max concealer brush. I use the foundation as a concealer and also bisque and well rested as concealers too. After I apply faux tan and blush, I apply another layer of mineral veil, concentrating on my t-zone. It keeps me shine free for hours, and I have extremely oily skin!

I love all BM products except for the primer. It contains silicone, which is not natural. I thought BM products were supposed to contain natural ingredients. The reason I use BM makeup is because it does not contain silicone. I cant find other foundations out there that don't contain silicone, so this was exciting to find out that BM makeup has like 4 ingredients. My skin is oily and acne prone, so silicone is a major no-no for my skin. I hope they come out with a silicone free primer soon!! Does anyone else have problems with silicone?

When I wear Bare minerals, it looks like a mask and I get really shiny and greasy looking!! HEEEELP!!
I have super sensitive skin that is red all the time!!! I am 16 and I really want to go without makeup, but can't get up the courage to!!
I have the oiliest skin on the planet so I can relate. I use sephora silicone free primer after cleansing my skin. Then I apply a layer of mineral veil to my entire face, concentrating on the t-zone. I then apply my matte BM foundation, concealer, blush..etc. I add another layer of mineral veil and voila shine free for a couple of hours at least lol. Mineral veil is perfect for touching up through out the day too!
