Phrases Chosen: convenient, for fair skin, hot weather
I'm a natural redhead, and therefore have very pale skin that gets red easily. The "Fair" in the original foundation was too dark for me. The "Fair" in the READY line seems perfectly designed for a pale complexion without much yellow -- and they have a shade with more yellow in it for those who need it.
I have combination skin, and this foundation doesn't cake or get too heavy or oily for me. One of the things I love about BareMinerals foundation is that it does not run at all even if I'm sweating buckets outside in 100+ degree weather -- I attended an outdoor funeral service in August in the South and it seemed to stay on better the more I sweated!

Is this foundation for all skin types?
I have combinaton skin and dont want to look oily on my Tzone also can one use the touch up veil on top of this foundaton for shine control and to set it.
I have combination skin and this works well for me. Use the Prime Time over your moisturizer, just a pea sized amount, less is more. Take the time to really buff the foundation into your skin -- 2-3 times like that over the whole of my face like that with the Full Flawless Face brush is enough coverage for me.

The touch-up veil works perfectly to use for shine control and to set the makeup -- I found even with the original foundation that if I used some of the Mineral Veil in the compact they sent me as a free gift that it looked better if I touched up at lunch and before going out that night with it. The READY touch-up veil compact is great, and so convenient! I can fit all my makeup in a small bag with my toothbrush and toothpaste for traveling, and I have the brush organizer as well.
