I recently had the opportunity to try out Laura Mercier’s Flawless Face products. These products are all new to me and with them being Laura Mercier (hello!!), I knew they would be high quality & very effective products. Flawless face… here I come!
Definitely use the Flawless Face Finder (on lauramercier.com) to help you find the specific products to meet your skin needs. I did! This really cuts the time on figuring out which products would work best for your skin – for that flawless face you’ve always wanted.
According to Laura Mercier, there are four steps to achieving a flawless face, a specific product for each step. My flawless results suggested that I use – Oil Free Foundation Primer, Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 Oil Free, Secret Camouflage, Invisible Loose Setting Powder. As you can see, two of the products are the oil free formula to balance out my combination, acne prone skin. These easy steps really helped me set a beauty routine that I can follow from now on.
Here are 4 steps to a flawless face using the products recommended. Each of the products below were specifically recommended for me by the flawless face finder. I strongly recommend you to find out your very own products as well!
STEP 1: prime the skin – Oil Free Foundation Primer
I try not to skip on the primer before applying foundation. It makes a huge difference on so many things – makeup staying power, controlling the oil and minimizing the appearance of pores. I’m so happy that this particular primer comes in an oil free formula. Yay! Soaks in like lotion, leaves skin matte & dewy.
STEP 2: apply foundation – Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20
Coverage, hydration, SPF, and oil free, all in one! I don’t like heavy makeup so a tinted moisturizer is perfect – with the benefit of SPF (SPF is needed year round not just in summer), not to mention oil free too! This one offers decent coverage for a tinted moisturizer. And best of all, it doesn’t scream – I have makeup on everyone!
STEP 3: conceal – Secret Camouflage
Two shades offer custom blending options – one to match the skins depth of color and one to match the skins undertone. Takes care of any imperfections showing after the tinted moisturizer is applied like under the eyes, dark age spots, etc.
STEP 4: set with powder – Invisible Loose Setting Powder
Again, for a sheer yet natural looking face, the Invisible Loose Setting Powder is right on target for my combination skin. My biggest issue is visible pores and an oily T-zone area. It offers a translucent finish yet it hides pores so well (just the powder alone!). I tell you gals, I’m so completely obsessed with this powder! Truly transparent. Pores be gone. No stinky smell.
Some call it a photoshop powder and I totally see why. I love how it doesn’t look cakey unlike some other loose powders I’ve used in the past.
This seals & extends the makeup application throughout the day. This invisible powder will work on all skin tones, no matter what shades, from light to deep.
No worry of spillage as you can turn the lid to secure it. Nice! Has the appearance of baking powder, but much finer. I recommend using brush application instead of puffs. I’m going to pick up a fan brush just for this product.
Works great in conjunction with a tinted moisturizer to create natural, dewy looking skin. Honestly, this is the best loose powder. Ever! Since loose powder is not the best for carrying around, I might as well get it in the pressed powder form for portability (uh-oh, one more added to my shopping list).
Okay, so if you want flawless face (who doesn’t!), get the set! You deserve to look your best! Do some of you gals already use any of the products mentioned above? Do tell!
