What it is:


Perfect your makeup look with Mineral Veil, now available in four shades and finishes, from matte to luminous. Versatile enough for all skin tones and skin types, the light-as-a-feather, super smooth formulas blend onto skin without smudging the makeup you're already wearing. Sheer and never cakey, Mineral Veil is a translucent setting powder made with natural ingredients that weightlessly blurs and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and pores, whether it is applied over makeup or onto beautifully bare skin.


Soft Matte Finish

With a soft matte finish, Original Mineral Veil is a transparent but hardworking finishing powder for all complexions. Minimizing lines, absorbing oils, and softening your look, it gives you an airbrushed finish that's too good to miss. And best of all, the loose mineral powder is utterly weightless.


Brightening and Blurring Luminous Finish

Completely sheer and versatile enough for all skin tones, Illuminating Mineral Veil provides a soft glow and keeps skin looking photo-ready with light-reflecting pearls that impart a radiant, ethereal softness.


Soft Matte Finish with a Hint of Warm Tint

With all of the soft translucence of the Original Mineral Veil, our Tinted Mineral Veil Finishing Powder features a hint of warm tint that infuses skin with softness and light while gently absorbing oil and minimizing the appearance of lines and pores. Completely sheer with a soft matte finish, it's versatile enough for all skin tones and works especially well as a translucent setting powder for dark and deep skin tones.


Hydrating, Brightening Finish with a Cooling Sensation

Our Hydrating Mineral Veil brightens skin with a sheer, peachy soft luminosity. The unique water and rice lipid encapsulated formula delivers an immediate brightening boost with a cool feeling. Clinically proven to improve skin's ability to retain moisture, the translucent finishing powder also minimizes the appearance of fine lines, pores and shine, and keeps your complexion feeling fresh. *

Ingredients: Silica, Aqua (Water/Eau), Silica Silylate, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Lipids, Populus Tremuloides Bark Extract, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Sodium Dehydoracetate, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Sorbic Acid. May Contain: Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Bismuth Oxychloride (CI 77163), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492)



SWIRL a small amount of Mineral Veil Finishing Powder in the lid until it all disappears into the brush.

TAP away excess.

BUFF onto the skin in sweeping motions.

Apply a quick sweep of the translucent finishing powder across the t-zone, around the cheeks or all over the face-wherever you need Mineral Veil to gently lock makeup in place, absorb excess oil, and help keep you looking fresh and flawless.


For use on oilier complexions, in humid climates, or with heavy moisturizers, start your makeup routine with an application of Mineral Veil before applying bareMinerals foundation or face makeup, then apply again as a last step to set your makeup.

I started using bareMinerals over 10 years ago maybe even 15 years ago and I loved them then, the only thing was that I was using it as my only foundation products so I didn't feel it gave me enough coverage, but I did love the way that it made my skin look for a powder. I have the finishing Veil and a all over face color\ bronzer type of product from them and I do like the powders I think that they do leave a pretty nice look to the skin and they are some powders that I can actually get away with wearing without looking too powdery but they still do make me look somewhat powdery in some areas so I'm still on the hunt for that perfect powder that doesn't give me a powder look. Overall I do think that Bare Minerals make some of the best face powders that I've used and if you don't have dry skin or even if you do and you can make Powers work for you I think that these powders from bare minerals are really great and you can also find them for really inexpensive prices at stores like TJ Maxx and Marshalls so if you can find them there or on sale then I definitely think that they're worth it and I would recommend them.

I have been using bare minerals for about 3 years now.

I LOVE this set. It's great for travel! So compact but complete with everything you need for day and evening looks. I do feel it's toward the more expensive end for the amount of product you get and if I use it 4-5 times a week this set is gone in 2-3 weeks, a month at the most. So, unless you want the small containers, it is more reasonably priced in full-size products!
GREAT for my sensitive skin. I can wear it daily without fear of breakouts from too much makeup use.

Works and looks so flawless & SMOOTH! I'm in my late 30s and my "fine lines" are starting to show more & more! So, I have to be careful with what products I use to not show my age 😂. This makeup does not settle in lines. This makeup looks flawless if put on properly. It even skin tones and hides blemishes Very, Very well without feeling heavy. I always get compliments on how my skin looks when I use my bare minerals. This makeup does not get on your clothes or phone like liquid makeup does. It lasts most the day too without need to touch up. I do have to touch up if going out after work for the evening for dinner but not somewhere casual.

I use the primer, concealers, the foundation, the finishing powder, highlighter, and bronzer for starters & little bit goes a LONG way! Do not use directly from the container. Shake some in the lid as recommended! Definitely look at the instructions for each product to get the most out of them. I also use blushes and lip products.

HANDS DOWN the BEST PRIMER! It feels like velvet going on. It is light and airy but leaves a smooth surface to start your makeup applications. It is my MOST FAVORITE primer! Too, it takes so little product the tube lasts forever!

Surprisingly, the concealer is the GREAT for covering up dark circles under my eyes!!!

The blushes blend evenly and like the eye shadows stay on all day.

Review for: Hydrating more...
I love the original mineral veil, and since I have dry skin I thought the hydrating mineral veil would be awesome. In the package it has a slight gold tint and is shimmery, but it goes on translucent and doesn't make your face look glittery. Even though my skin is dry, whenever I wear makeup, regardless of what kind, brand or ingredients, my t-zone gets oily after a few hours. This mineral veil made that problem worse. After 3 hours I need to blot my nose and forehead twice, which I do not have to do with the regular mineral veil. Overall, I do not think this version is any better than the original and I would not recommend it.

I got their deluxe size that they sold around the holidays for a bargain deal so I thought this would be great since I’m a setting powder junkie. First off, this isn’t translucent. It has a red tint that does slightly alter your foundation to make it look like a cooler undertone. Second, when I would spray it with my all nighter from Urban Decay, it would feel SO SOFT at first but then after five minutes, it would pill off meaning that if I touched my face lightly, I could full little balls of powder coming off with my foundation. I used MAC Fix+ the next day and found that the polling didn’t start until 30 mins after. I do not recommend. If you’re looking for a high end powder, Hourglass is for the win.

Review for: Original more...
I bought this while it was on sale at Ulta last year and it was an alright powder. Even though it's labeled as translucent, the powder looks like it has a pinky undertone to it and it doesn't look totally translucent to me. It's a decent setting powder, but I have noticed that this doesn't smooth out my undereyes as well as other powders I've tried and I can still see the fine lines around my undereyes. There is also definitely some flashback with this powder and I had to find that out the hard way. It's an alright powder, but not one I find myself reaching for. I have other, more affordable powders that work better for me.

So, I used to do a lot of full face makeovers for clients with almost all of the B.E. minerals. Personally, my skin was too dry for the products, regardless of whether it was the loose foundation, mineral veil, or loose radiants. Not only that, I never felt like it was enough coverage for my skin. But I can say this, it worked wonders for many people of many different skin types & skin colors. Especially people with pale complexions, rosacea/redness, or any skin concerns/sensitivities. The most common complaints I've heard or had with the loose minerals mainly with the loose minerals being super messy, which can be especially discouraging when there was an accidental spill, such as dropping the container whether the lid was on or off, because 1 way or another, there would end up being a huge cloud of minerals wafting, plus it was always sad to see so much product wasted if it was dropped when the lid was off. But, on the upside, the product itself does work well & many people consider the mineral veil their secret weapon or perfect finishing touch to their makeup routine, which is why it's been a top seller in the makeup industry for over a decade. Plus, you can't go wrong with all natural minerals in a cosmetic product.

Review for: Hydrating more...
So I recently dropped 600 bucks at Ulta and this was something I picked up, I wish I had bought 2! That's how BOMB this powder is. It feels so good, I got the hydrating one and it literally is cold....like it feels like you're sticking your face in a freezer when you apply it and its so satisfying! It's also super finely milled and really good on nature skin. I just use a big powder brush cause I do think a beauty blender would make for cakey skin, but with a brush its PERFECT!

This is my favorite brand of cosmetics. I have weird skin, sometimes it's hardy as a pioneer and some days you look at it wrong and it will break out. Whatever my skin is doing, I can put on the Bare Mineral foundation, and it feels light and airy on my skin and hides all my imperfections and makes me look like I have great skin. I can wear it all day and have even SLEPT in this foundation, and I get up the next day and wash my face and my face feels better than when I put the makeup on. The coverage is wonderful and it's just a great product.

(NOTE- Technically I use the Hydrating Mineral Veil)
I love this mineral veil. I don't know how to describe the hydrating properties other than you can tell by the sheer softness of the powder. It feels heavenly on the skin, blends seamlessly and helps blur imperfections. It isn't translucent but it might as well be. My only complaint is it is really hard to open initially. I shake just a little into the cap and swirl into my brush from there, adding more as needed. I use the e.l.f. Studio Kabuki Face Brush to apply the mineral veil.
