Bareminerals is a great and widely-loved company, so it comes as no surprise that it would be making this list more than once.
The BAREPRO performance wear foundation is a great choice for anyone looking for a full coverage, breathable formula that has a lasting life of 12 hours. It proves that summer foundation can be in powder form.
For all of my oily girls and guys out there, this would be a great choice due to its matte, noncomedogenic, and non-acnegenic finish. Other perks include its formulation of 90% vitamins and minerals which help to improve skin clarity, reduce appearance of pore size, and controls shine.
