my skin gets red & itchy with makeup. Not like breakouts, just irritation. It doesn't do this with bare minerals.

Thanks Morgan. I break out. Next thing you know I wake up with a massive pimple!

I've been using bareminerals for about 4 months and I love it. You can't feel it on but it looks great. Like you are "done" but not "done-up".

Laura Mercier makes a similar loose mineral powder that's part of their "flawless face" line. I bought it before the wedding and used it and loved it. Not sure about the photos, though, the photographers warned me to be sure not to have anything shiny on my face that could reflect light.

They sell bare escentuals kits which come out cheaper than buying everything separately so I bought it and took it to Jamaica with me and had the stylist that did my hair apply my make up. It turned out great. It wasn't too heavy and it stayed on all day in the hot sun.
so it photographed well?

I bought the bare essentials kit at Sephora and at first I loved bare minerals. But after about a month, I noticed I had started to break out. I quit using it and my skin returned to normal. I have really sensitive skin and I have to be careful with what I use. I break out very easily.

Does anyone have experience with this?
That is kinda like me. My T-zone is super oily but my face can easily get too dry and flaky. I love b.e. even with my skin. The kit comes with some random lotion that I put on before hand and it helps with the dry parts.

I use Bare Minerals and LOVE it. It's true what they say about being able to sleep with it on and not breaking out from it.

 

However, I am using MAC for the wedding b/c I want a more matte finish and the MAC Studio Fix powder foundation works so well with all different types of lighting.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
