Mineral Veil - null
Over or under, it's a great product
If you ever wonder why you need to put powder on top of powder, look at the difference in texture between mineral foundation and mineral finishing powder. The super fine texture of the mineral veils gives an air-brushed appearance to the skin that you can't get with mineral foundation alone.
Original Mineral Veil has become too drying for my dry/sensitive skin. So, I don't use it anymore. When I did, I saw it as an essential final step to make my skin look its best.
Instead, I use Hydrating Mineral Veil. I've recently started using it as my primer, because my new sunscreen stays tacky no matter how long I put it on before makeup. (I can't use primers because of an intolerance to dimethicone.) It works perfectly! Sometimes, I put it on over my foundation, too, but I've been using Radiances for finishing instead with great success - but only when I have used HMV as a primer. Otherwise, HMV is my favorite finisher.
Illuminating Mineral Veil (formerly Feather Light) makes a great facial highlighter and can make a dull complexion look radiant. It does glow. Some might even say it sparkles, but when it's applied sparingly, the effect is luminous rather than sparkly.
I use Tinted Mineral Veil on clients only. I thought it might work as an all-over faux tan for summer for me, but the color just isn't right for that use. However, as a finishing powder for darker skins, it excels. You never have to worry about a whitening effect from it.
This make-up does what it says! It helps keep my skin hydrated and my make-up lasts all day. What more can you ask for?
I've been using Bare Minerals for about 9 years, and while I really like the majority of the products, Mineral Veil is by far my favorite. I am not someone who wears a lot of makeup, and there are days when I will only be out for a few minutes, so I just swirl, tap, and buff a little Mineral Veil on! It covers the majority of the imperfections in my skin. When I'm wearing a full face Mineral Veil gives me a flawless finish.
I can't live a day without it.
First I have to say, I hate how in the start-up kit you get a big foundation and a small Mineral Veil. I use the veil more than the foundation! Some days, I wake up with flawless skin (I know, I don't get it either) and so all I use to finish my face is the mineral veil. It is amazing. I can only describe it as such. It keeps my face rom getting oily, and locks in the moisture from my morning moisturizer, yet it doesn't cause any breakouts on me with the sensitive skin. I can only say one thing: buy it right now. It will change your world. I understand the price is shocking, but the large tubs have lasted me for over a year, so the money is worth it.
Love my mineral veil
I love love love my mineral veil! My face is not complete until I've applied my mineral veil. It so soft and perfect, adds perfection to my skin and makes my eyelashes fuller for easier application of mascara. It tones down my blush if its too heavy. I use the powder and carry a compact for touch ups during the day. During that time of the month when my face is a little oily, it's super to get rid of the shine. I love my mineral veil, I've tried several of the different kinds from tinted to sparkly. I love them all! Thank You God for my mineral veil!!
This doesn't look like much, but a little brightens your complexion and gives you a luminous glow!
The Best for Last
Do not skip this step!! It will leave you with a flawless finish.
Don't skip this last step!!
At first, I was skeptical as to whether or not this product was necessary. It totally is!!! Especially during the summer or winter months when you would either sweat or have snow flakes falling from he sky. Mineral veil prevents any breakups or separation in powder. I absolutely love it and this product is definately a must have for your BE collection!
SO GLAD I FOUND THIS BRAND!!!!!!
After going through radiation and chemotherapy I found myself highly allergic to just about everything. The treatments had also caused light and dark spots all over my face so I was embarrassed to go out without some kind of makeup on. Bare minerals has been a God send to me. After finishing my makeup the mineral veil is the finishing touch that pulls it all together. Sometimes I only wear it, so PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE don't ever stop making it.
My favorite product!
Very lightweight , soft air brush, glowing finish. People always compliment on my skin when I wear the mineral veil . It is great to wear for pics because it reduces shine. It is healthy for your skin ! A little secret and tip of mine for oily skin... I use it right after my moisturizer before I put on my bare mineral foundation. This helps to reduce oil and shine and it's the best primer ever!
