Can't-Live-Without-It Foundation

I don't wear very much makeup, but one thing people often ask me about is my foundation. I use Laura Mercier Mineral Powder which is super easy to apply and provides natural-looking coverage. It wears really well all day, so even when you start getting a little shiny or sweaty (story of my life), your skin still looks pretty. Here's how I use it in my morning routine:

1. First, I prep my skin by washing gently with water and applying moisturizer and a prescription acne gel.
2. Next, I sprinkle some powder into the cap.
3. Using a big fluffy face brush, I "buff" the powder in circles in the cap to break it down and get it to adhere evenly to the brush.
4. Then I apply the powder to my face using circular motions, concentrating on areas where I need more coverage (like around my nose and chin).
5. To finish, I apply a little bronzer on the apples of my cheeks, and that's it!

I've converted three aunts and potentially the receptionist at my optometrist's office to this make up. If you're looking for a new no-hassle foundation, I'd highly recommend it.

Your skin looks absolutely flawless and glowing! I'll have to give this a try for sure. I have oily/acne prone skin and I think this seems light enough with enough coverage.

I also use the Laura Mercier liquid foundation and so far it has been the best to date.

Thanks!

where do you buy it at?

Sounds like a great foundation! I use a MAC pressed powder which offers minimal coverage... will definitely need to check this one out!

Thanks Elissa! I don't know why, but liquid foundation has always intimidated me.

Prettyanddelectable and katie, if you want to try it before you buy it, I'd suggest getting a sample from sephora (I just learned you can ask for up to 3 samples per visit!) :) you can also get it at any laura mercier counter in department stores like macy's or nordstrom.

Hi! May i ask which shade you are using? I can't decide between real sand and classic beige. I have asian skintone more on the yellow sometimes olive tones. Any help would be appreciated! 😊
