WHAT MAKES OUR MINERAL POWDER FOUNDATION SO AWESOME
Batty's Mineral Makeup Foundation is formulated to keep your skin looking great while you're wearing it without causing any problems after you take it off! This foundation won't clog your pores. It also won't irritate sensitive, acne, or rosacea-prone skin.
This weightless, forgiving, silky matte foundation feels like nothing at all when applied but it covers just like a medium to heavy duty liquid foundation (Build up coverage by applying as many layers as you need)! It evens out your skin tone and reduces the appearance of fine lines, pores, redness, and imperfections.
If you're looking for a sheer, flawless, natural looking foundation, look no further! This foundation is natural anti-bacterial power powder! It works as a foundation, concealer, powder, and includes sun ray blocking titanium dioxide (one of the best sun blocking minerals found in natural sunscreen). A little bit of foundation is all you need to create a naturally luminous, healthy complexion.

HOW TO USE THE MINERAL FOUNDATION
- To get a smooth flawless finish start by using one of Batty's facial scrubs to remove any makeup, oil, dead skin, or debris.
- Next, apply Batty's Daily Detox (Primer) Moisturizer or Forever Young (Quick Tint) Moisturizer to prep your skin as well as work to make your skin flawless by moisturizing, reducing redness, and pulling up blackheads.
- Next, apply Batty's concealer if desired.
- Now it's time to apply the foundation!
- Tap a small amount of Batty's Mineral Foundation into the lid of the packaging. Use a kabuki brush to pick up the powder in the lid and tap the brush on the side of the lid or sink to remove the excess.
- Apply the foundation in a swirling motion to blend the powder in while you apply. Start by applying LESS than you think you'll need.
- Look at the foundation in a few different lights (including natural sunlight) to see if you're comfortable with the coverage. Add more if desired.
- After using the foundation a few times you'll get to know how much you're comfortable applying and you'll likely notice that it's less than you are used to applying. The idea is to have natural coverage without looking like you're wearing mask of makeup.

I don't like to feel like I'm wearing make up so it has to have good coverage because I don't use much. I use just a dusting of the mineral foundation plus I go back over any blemishes or redness with a tiny bit more and voila!...even skin tone in seconds.
Absolutely, irrevocably obsessed with this foundation. There was a bit of a learning curve to get used to a powder after having used liquid but stick with it - it truly just takes practice. Goes on light, doesn't feel cakey, and lasts me most of the day (I'm oily by nature, even when inactive, so the oil absorbing setting powder has been a lifesaver). I dab a bit of Batty's concealer if I have any really bad spots and use the mineral foundation on top, all over. Gives such a gorgeous shimmer that's very natural looking and seems to smooth and highlight your features beautifully. All in all a very well made product! Thanks Batty, can't see myself ever using anything else :)
This is my favourite mineral foundation! I love it! It is matte yet has a nice glow to it and it covers everything amazingly! I will not use anything else now except this foundation!
I absolutely love my Mineral makeup foundation! I love that it doesn't feel heavy when I wear it and it goes great with the Whipped Cream Foundation or alone with Moisterizer. However the shade in the Mineral foundation compared to the Whipped Cream foundation is lighter, So next time I know to get a shade darker in the Mineral Foundation! ( I originally had Flax in cream and mineral but will get Cinnamon in the mineral in the future)
I love the glow Honey gives to my skin!
I have used mineral foundations before, and this one is my favourite. You can layer it on for as little or as much coverage as you need, and you need very little to achieve either! I am looking forward to trying the liquid foundation next.
I must say that I absolutely love this mineral foundation! It provides great coverage, looks very natural, is light and airy on the skin and stays on practically all day. I love that it shimmers and gives a golden dewy look that other mineral foundations don't provide. The best part...unbelievably this is all achieved without harsh carcinogenic chemicals. I am sick and tired of poisoning myself trying to look pretty! I have acne prone skin and I'm always apprehensive trying a new product as I never know how my skin will react but I have not had a break out since I started using it. I am really happy to say that this product has far exceeded all of my mineral foundation expectations! Highly recommend!
Hello:) I just recently discovered Batty's Bath, and just received my first order today! I got a sample of the mineral make up and absolutely love it. It provides good coverage, and is easy to apply. Going to be ordering a full size, along with a concealer next.
I love my mineral foundation!! For a long time I was using pore-clogging liquid foundations from the drug store, putting myself through a vicious cycle of covering up zits only to create more of them. Now I feel good about what I'm putting on my skin-- I can see a noticeable decline in my acne since using this foundation (along with the Patchouli facial soap and Patchouli moisturizer). Even better, the coverage is incredible!! I normally don't like mineral or powder foundations because they never covered as well as liquid ones for me. They also always felt too drying, but not Batty's. This mineral foundation has a silky feel to it. I was surprised to find that the two lightest shades were too light for me, as I don't think I have much color. However, even with Almond, I find the foundation makes me look a little pale when I have to use more to build coverage. I'm going to try Vanilla next, but a bit of bronzer does the trick too.
This product does everything it promises. Those before and after photos on this page? Those are 100% truthful. I'm someone who has every skin care issue imaginable; acne, sensitivity, oiliness flakiness, you name it. Whenever I'd attempt to put on liquid foundation (even though they would be covered) I always felt these problems becoming worse. Plus, it felt like I was putting on a mask :/ Everything changed when I ordered some of Batty's samples. The powder was very east to apply and east to blend into my skin. It was also non irritating and didn't have me restraining myself from wiping it off every couple of minutes. Most of all, I no longer feared finding a zit had grown bigger after removing it. In other words, doing my make-up is a much more enjoyable experience :) I can't wait to order full size in the future!!!
