Q & A

Well-Rested Eye Brightener Broad Spectrum SPF 20 4.4 5 58 58
For Fair Skinned People. I'm not too sure if this is the right way to use this item but this is how I use it. I put it under my eyes and on the eye lids before I put on my foundation. Only because I find that it is pretty yellow if I put it over the foundation to get that 'well rested' look. It certainly works well that way however, I guess it would become more like a concealer. I am really FAIR skinned so if I put it over top of the foundation it looks terrible. Just in case there were any other fair skinned people looking at this item. 01/28/2016
Too yellow for fair girls I was so excited to try this product that I bought the full size. It is far to yellow for fair skin with cool undertones. I tries using a precision brush and applying it only over blue under eye circles...and it still showed up "yellow" next to my skin. It is unwearable. 01/11/2016
Love Bare Minerals I use well rested eye brightner to cover red splotches on my face and it works great. I also use it to cover bags under my eyes. I've used bare minerals for several years now and love the products. I do sometimes get caking if I have hot flashes and perspire a lot, but I think that would be true of any make-up. 01/07/2016
Favorite Concealer Does not crease, looks natural, works well with the original and matte foundations. I wouldn't recommend this for trying to cover really dark circles. 01/05/2016
Doesn't work for my under-eye darkness I don't like this as an under-eye concealer for a few reasons. I find that even with a moisturizer and primer, this really settles into fine lines. I wear fairly light foundation and like a lot of fair-skinned people my dark circles are very noticeable. This doesn't cover well enough in that area. It's great for coverage of red spots elsewhere on my face though or if you want to brighten your eyelids. I got somewhat better under-eye correction from an eye-shadow called Lemon Freeze which is less gold than this. Unfortunately, it was only sold in a discontinued collection. I've just tried a sample of the correcting concealer that's a cream rather than a powder and it provides substantially better coverage than any of the powders. It's almost enough to make me want to try the liquid foundation which is something I swore I'd never touch after switching to BE over 10 years ago. 10/29/2015
I love this BM product I have glaucoma and the eye drops I have to use have discolored the area around my eyes. Plus, I have Rosacea which causes red splotches on my face. I'm also very allergic to most cosmetics, even some that are hypoallergenic. I searched for many years and spent tons of money trying to find a product that would really cover my skin discolorations. About 3 years ago, my daughter gifted me with an introductory gift of Bare Minerals. I liked it so well that I began to experiment with other BM products, Well Rested being one of them. I used it around my eyes and on all red splotches and it covered perfectly. Plus, I'm not allergic to it! I love this stuff and will not do without it! 09/18/2015
This is my LIFE SAVER I love this stuff. This is probably the best thing BM makes. I use it under my eyes to conceal darkness and since I'm light in complexion this actually works for all over my face if I have any redness or blemishes to conceal. I keep a jar of this in my purse with a brush to touch up throughout the day. It's awesome and worth the money. It they made this in a compact form it would be even better. 09/06/2015
Awesome for under eyes! I apply this with a soft focus brush underneath my eyes after applying my mineral veil. I love how it brightens up my eye area and makes my under eye circles look less visible. A little goes a long way! 08/09/2015
Not For Me Dark circles are my worst enemy, and I really wanted to find something to not only mask mine but also give it that lighter glow. In hindsight, this sounds perfect. It's lightweight and definitely brightens up your eye area. Sadly, it just didn't work out for me. For some reason, the powder made creases I didn't know I had appear. I also didn't feel like it covered up my dark circles at all and the brightening affect didn't look as good as I had hoped. I ended up exchanging it for the Correcting Concealer and am really glad I did. Would recommend that over this. 07/20/2015
Not so well rested! My experience with the Well-Rested Eye Brightener Broad Spectrum SPF 20 was the exact opposite of what it is intended to do. I never looked “well rested,” except when I had a good night sleep. Sorry, but that is the honest, unvarnished truth and outcome. 06/19/2015

I've heard great things about this. I often get dark circles under my eyes due to lack of sleep (thanks college), but if this doubles as a concealer it's a must have! So, does it?

Works great for concealing color from acne or scars. I don't think it would conceal pores or 'holes' in the skin.

I'm new to the world of makeup and new to BM as well and lately I've been really liking the conturing and highlighting look. I've heard that well-rested eye brightener works for highlighting? i mean can an eye brightener be used for highlighting other areas other than the eye area?

Hi AriaAnchorage Ak,

As a loyal user of the Stroke of Light Eye Brightener, I would say using it for coverage on other areas of the face than the eye area may not really hold up when compared to some of the cheek tints, etc. It is just the right amount of highlight for smaller areas such as the far and near corners of the eyes. Even wiping a longer stroke and blending from the corner of the eyes downwards I find helps contour and narrow the nose bridge. I have heard of some using it in the cupid's bow to provide subtle highlight there.

A: 
I use a Flawless Face brush to apply this - maybe the size of this brush is a bit overkill, but it works. I use the same Swirl & Tap process that BE suggests, and then I close each eye and lightly buff it both underneath and over the eyelid. After that, I use my fingers to squeeze the brush into a thick line and get up to the eyelashes for all around brightness.

Just as you would any of the items - take a small brush (I like the baby buki) take a small amount of well-rested and swirl and tap. Just lightly brush over each eyelid. You're done!

Use one of the BM brushes and apply to upper and lower areas above the eye and below. You will be truly surprised at how well it extends the wear of your eye shadow and eye liner after application as well as lightening and evening out your colors.

Hi,

I'm not sure if someone's answered this or not, but I'm gonna give it a go! You can use a small powder brush of your choice, preferably a soft bristled one so the product spreads easier and isn't so harsh on your face. I've been using the product anywhere I want to highlight. I know it says it's for your under eyes, but it does wonders all over your face. Try using a small brush and putting it underneath your eyes and blending out toward the top of your cheekbone as well as down toward your nose. You can put it on the bridge of your nose, bow of your lips, inner corner of your eyes and your brow bone, too. Have fun with it!! xo

in the same way as foundation powder (slight-medium coverage). But let me to advise you to try this product in the store to see if it fits you. I also wanted to buy this but when I tryed this I saw it is too light for me, I looked like the panda with this, though my tone of the skin is fairly-light . Also "Well Rested" accentuated all wrinkles under my eyes. But some people love this, so it is better to try this before purchase

A: 
Since you have super sensitive skin, you may have to try a few different things. The Correcting concealer (the creamy version) works well under my eyes to even out skin tone, as does the Stroke of Light. The Well Rested Powder does some concealing, but in my experience it does not last all-day without either the concealer or Stroke of Light underneath.

Concealer means it will conceal - the well-rested is more for brightening. My suggestion - use well-rested on eyelids to brighten, concealer under eyes to cover the dark circles.

A: 
If you have light circles the powder well rested will work but if they are dark it will help but will not cover. My dad has dark circles and I inherited them. I used to use the stick type of concealer to cover them but with bare minerals a little goes a long way so if you have bad circles you could probably use a few dabs of the concealer and put well rested on top. That is what I do and it is not noticable at all. The well rested tends to brighten as opposed to actual concealing.

My personal choice is the Well-Rested as it not only protects the sensitive eye area; but evens out the tone of the entire area, and I brush it on the upper and lower eye areas.

If you act right away, I just purchased the Wellrested trio for only $15. You must purchase online and you will receive wellrested concealer and wellrested eye brightener and the application brush. Wellrested is my favorite product but maybe you may need a separate sunscreen. God bless you

I've purchased both concealer and the Well-Rested Eye Brightener, and I find that Well-Rested works sooooo much better for me than the concealer. I use the "Maximum Coverage Face Brush." This brush helps TREMENDOUSLY in covering things up. It's much better than the "Maximum Coverage Concealer Brush."

Hi Brynn,
I suggest the Well-Rested SPF 20 Eye Brightener (loose shadow version) for dark under-eye circles. I have all three products: the powdered concealer, the powdered Well-Rested, and the liquid Well-rested. The concealer is really great for red marks, sun marks, or pimples. It neutralizes the color and works well under a foundation. If you have acne or get zits, it's a great thing to try! The Well-Rested Brightener (powder) lightens dark places and provides good coverage. The liquid version does not work as well for me (less brightening, less coverage, harder to apply). If you wanted to choose only one product that works really well for dark eye circles, I highly recommend the Well-rested SPF 20 loose powder shadow. I also have very sensitive skin, so much so that I cannot wear all BM products (e.g. eyelid primer, big and bright eye liner, etc), but the products you're asking about work really well for me. Hope this helps!

So many BM products sound like they might be gluten-free but scientific names are not easy to determine if they are gluten-free unless sources are given. It is necessary to know what products contain gluten for millions in the US alone. No concealers are listed under your "products containing gluten" but I wonder if the list needs updating. Thank you.
