I had recently reviewed the bareMinerals Ready Foundation, which I liked quite a bit. I had received a small tester of the Original, when I made this purchase at an Ulta. The color was Medium Beige. I learned to use a neutral shade because it's the best at covering Rosacea, and luckily this was the shade I was given. I was using a kabuki brush, as I thought I needed full coverage for my redness. The shade was just a little too dark so I purchased Fairly Light, and I mix them 1/2 and 1/2. I read a review that someone wanted a neutral between these 2 shades- this is it. You pay for 2 foundations up front, but it will last FOREVER. I also started using a big fluffy powder brush-with very little product in the cap...and it's amazing how much better it looks. It's a light to medium coverage- but it covers more :)

I went to a Bare Minerals store on a whim, and was color matched for the Ready Foundation in Medium Tan, I'm between fair and medium and thought this would be too dark, it wasn't really...it is amazing how much lighter is goes on. I have some rosacea , and after seeing the video with Shelby, and with going to Ulta and buying some Original Bare Minerals powder I learned to go with the neutral for covering rosacea. I now use the Medium Beige in Ready. I love it, I learned to REALLY, REALLY go easy. I was getting it in my lines a little at first too ( like I've seen some comments) I decided one day to just tap ,and brush it on one whole side of my face, and another tap for the other side, It really is enough, and no bisque concealer is needed on my cheeks anymore!!

Questions
 
Rosacae coverage from Ready Foundation
My Rosacea prone areas seem to get blotchy and the foundation doesn't cover well (nose and cheeks) Is my foundation too light?, am I not blending enough? It doesn't do it when I apply a very light application but I need to apply more for the coverage. The more I apply the worse it gets

Which shade now that my skin is lighter?
Hi there, i have always used the medium beige shade as was recommended to me by the beautician selling your products a few years ago. Only I have noticed this winter it seems too dark with a slightly orange tint. Which shade is the best one to be one step lighter? I noticed the others have pink undertones but the one i have been using is neutral, would medium be ok in this case?
Medium is the pinkest color of all. if you want to stay neutral go with Fairly Light, and mix them.

How Do I apply Ready foundation
Can you use your fingers to apply Ready Foundation or cotton ball? Any other ways you can suggest?
I think a brush is needed, a cotton ball or your fingers will just put the product in one spot. This foundation blends so nicely into the skin, but it won't without a brush in my opinion. I left my Precision Face Brush at my vacation home, and now use a big fluffy brush, or a mini kabuki, and get a nice medium coverage.
