Trying Bare Minerals Original Foundation for the First Time

I've wanted to try it for a while, but I have PLENTY of foundations. I do love Complexion Rescue, and it is now what I wear in summer. So I thought I'd try this.

 

Do you wear anything under it, like sunscreen and primer? I wear them under most of mine, except Complexion Rescue. I don't know much about the original. My favorite primer is LG's Spackle. Can I wear it under this? Or if the ingredients in this are supposed to be skin care, should I put it over a bare face? TIA! Smiley Happy

Re: Trying Bare Minerals Original Foundation for the First Time

I always wear my usual daytime moisturizer/SPF underneath, even though the bareminerals has sunscreen.  Unless you have very oily skin, I’d suggest some sort of moisturizer.

 

There was another thread here somewhere discussing the TSV and the original foundation settling into fine lines.  Many people said they always wear a primer underneath too.  I don’t like primers, so I only go with a moisturizer.
