OKay, I'm back! LOL!

Anyway, some mineral makeups that DON'T contain bismuth are Aromaleigh, GeoGrafx, Botany 101, & Monave. There may be more. But you'll want to avoid Bare Minerals/Escentuals, Youngblood, Sheer Cover, & Jane Iredale. You can get samples of AL, GG, & Monave for reasonable prices. The samples from Botany are reasonable but it can take up to 6-8 weeks to receive them - to me, it's not worth the wait - but they are available.

Also - I use sunless tanners, too, & don't have any problem matching my skintone! :-)

I know BE has their own stores in some cities, but again, I wouldn't recommend it because of your rosacea. You're probably going to have to order samples online.

Brushes - the type of brush you use depends on the type of coverage you want. With rosacea, you're going to want something super soft. I have a baby kabuki that I got from Aromaleigh - it is SO soft & is awesome for a flawless application. You can also use a flocked sponge - this will give you heavier coverage. You can get these at Sally's for a few dollars. A good foundation brush is going to be dense, but soft to the touch. The *hairs* should be silky & pliable, natural - not stiff & plastic, or spread far apart. A good foundation brush is not cheap - but it will last for years & years.

I'm happy to answer any questions you have!!
