Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil

Mineral Veil is Bare Escentuals' best selling product. It has been featured on the Oprah Winfrey show as a product that is used on Oprah by her makeup artist everyday. Because it is so popular, it can be found in a variety of formulations and sizes.

Many users do not use other Bare Escentuals Foundation - they use it either alone with no foundation or with liquid or another brand of foundation.

In addition to the original formula, it now also comes in tinted, feather light and hydrating formulas.

It is completely sheer and softens your look and makeup, minimizing the look of lines and pores. It also contains cornstarch and does a great job of providing a perfect finish to your foundation.

Some users with oilier skin and/or enlarged pores will use a "sandwich" of Mineral Veil - before and after their foundation. This makes pores appear smaller and controls oil.

Tinted Mineral Veil has a slight tint and imparts a hint of color. It is a favorite among Medium to Dark skin tones, because the original can leave them looking a bit "washed out".  I was so thrilled when the tinted version was introduced, before I always had to add an All Over Face Color, because the original left my face too light.   Lighter skin tones can use it very sparingly for a sheer wash of color.
You can mix your own tinted version by adding a touch of Warmth to regular Mineral Veil. There was also a faux tan version which was a mixture of the original formula and a little faux tan all over face color.

Illuminating Mineral Veil was originally called Feather Light. It is my favorite because it is much lighter than the original and is very, very sheer with a slight luminous finish.

There was also a Tinted Illuminating (Feather Light) version in a kit a while back, but unfortunately I have only very rarely see it available for sale on its own.

Hydrating Mineral Veil is ideal for drier skin types and those who find their mineral makeup to be drying to their skin. It contains rice lipids, shea butter, glycerin, ceramacydes, and hyaluronic acid to provide moisture and like all of the other formulas it also contains corn starch to absorb oil.

Do you need Mineral Veil?
I definitely recommend using it to set and soften your look and it keeps your minerals in place all day.
