Whether you’re going for a natural look or dolling up for a night on the town, you’ll always look your best with Laura Mercier’s foolproof four-step approach to a flawless complexion.
PRIME YOUR SKIN
Prep skin with Foundation Primer – Radiance. This waterbased makeup base not only blurs imperfections, evens out the complexion and enhances luminosity, it also protects your skin from external elements. To reduce puffiness on your face, pop the product in the refrigerator a few minutes before you use it.
The award-winning Secret Camouflage masks discolourations, blemishes and other imperfections on the face. For the delicate undereye area, a more emollient formula is required. Try the moisture-rich Secret Concealer ($38) or High Coverage Concealer ($42), which also de-puffs and brightens the eye area. A little goes a long way for these highly pigmented products, so apply with a brush for precision and control.
For a sheer, dewy finish, apply Tinted Moisturizer. Formulated with antioxidant vitamins, it softens the look of fine lines, hydrates skin and gives it an iridescent glow. The oil-free version offers shine control for oily or acneprone skin. If you need more coverage, try Silk Creme or Moisture Supreme Foundation ($73 each) for a smooth, flawless finish. Laura’s specially designed sponge ($24 for four) blends for a second-skin effect.
SET WITH POWDER
Finish with Loose Setting
Powder (Translucent). Formulated with ultra-fine talc containing light-reflecting part particles, the powder blurs fine lin lines and imperfections while delivering a beautiful, longlasting last finish that never cakes.
