Product Description

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 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.

I absolutely love bareMinerals mineral Veil! And I'm not a huge fan of the rest of their products for the most part other than there liquid eyeliner, but this mineral Veil is unbelievably amazing! I use it as a Topper and I just swirl it all over my face either with just a loose bristle brush or a flat top Kabuki brush depending on finish that I'm going for, but it makes all the difference in the world! It just gives your skin natural glowing not makeup looking effect if that makes any sense LOL and I love it so much that sometimes I mix together the original mineral Veil, the tinted mineral Veil, and the Luminous mineral Veil and that creates like my perfect Veil! If you haven't tried it and you have to at least try the original it really is amazing and puts the perfect Finishing Touch on your face!! This one is definitely a true and tried staple!

I received the mineral veil as part of a make up kit I bought. I was going to buy most of the products and the kits offered those products plus a few more for a cheaper price than just buying the individual items I wanted. I have tried the mineral veil powder many years ago and don't remember it doing much. I tried it more recently and I find it to be a good powder as long as I only use a little bit of it. I would not recommend using this product to bake. I tried to do that and it left a white film in the area. It seemed as though I could not get the powder to come off fully. But when I just do a light dusting of the powder all over the face, I believe it works just fine. I have noticed that it can be a bit drying for under my eyes, but this is a pretty dry area of my skin.

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.

Man I have been using bare minerals since I was a little girl! My mother has always used bare minerals, and I remember having my first setting powder! Leftover from my mom lol it didn't even have any powder in it. But I loved pretending to put it on and be just like my mom. Now as an adult I buy this, and it gives me all those beautiful feelings again, and I can truly appreciate it now. It's very translucent powder gives a fine finish, I love carrying it in my purse as it is does have spf35 i believe. Some powders make me look ghostly but this one does not. I will always buy this as my setting powder. Certain brands I STAY loyal to; bare minerals, urban decay, and the newest, fenty beauty!!!

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: Original more...
I've been using bareMinerals in various ways for at least 10 years now, and I keep coming back to the Mineral Veil.  I love me a good loose translucent powder to set my makeup (foundation or tinted moisturizer) and this definitely does the job without looking at ALL like I've put a powder on my face. 

Only 4 stars because I'm trying to be more cognizant of the origins of my products and I'm not sure that the bareMinerals brand is the most ethical or sustainably made brand, but in terms of doing it's job, this is a great product.

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.

I really do love all this bareMinerals and this mineral veil is no exception. It is a fine, soft powder that goes on smooth and keeps my makeup in place and oil buildup to a minimum throughout the day. The only reason I am removing a star is because this can sometimes give me a chalky appearance depending on the products I use underneath. If it's a day that I'm feeling anything with shimmer or glitter, I make sure to use this immediately after foundation. Then I apply those bronzers, blushes or highlighters last otherwise they get washed out with the mineral veil.
