Escentuals Foundation Light
Question about mineral makeup...bare escentuals?

Do you recommend it for someone who has light acne?
Can I put the mineral foundation powder all over my face, including around my eyes?
Can I use a MAC brush (like the 116) to apply bare escentuals makeup?

I work in a salon that uses Bare Escentuals make up, and it's the only thing we recommend for skin with acne. It has no irritants, and unlike the high street brands it doesn't contain talc powder.

The company does say you should use the Bare Escentuals brush though, it just gives better coverage rather than mixing brands. MAC tools aren't designed for that type of make up.

You could put the foundation round your eyes extremely lightly, but I use the proper eye concealer pot because you need a shade lighter under your eyes than you use on your skin.

Hope this helps!
