Beauty Find of The Week: Laura Mercier's Flawless Face

Full disclosure I am not a foundation kind of girl, but one thing I do know is that Laura Mercier is one of the best names in the brand when it comes to creating flawless looking, as well as healthy skin. Laura believes there are four steps to create a flawless face: primer, foundation, concealer, and setting powder. Each product has been specifically developed to allow every woman to achieve an incredibly even, smooth, yet natural-looking complexion. I'm not stranger to other Laura Mercier products, as you may have seen previously on my blog (I'm wearing a Laura Mercier lip gloss I purchased in the picture), so I'm glad I have the opportunity to introduce you to Laura Mercier Flawless Face approach.

Laura Mercier's has four simple steps to the flawless face:

Step 1: Prime the Skin with Foundation Primer
This product is much different that I expected. When I think of primer I think of a clear, matte/silicone like gel. Instead this product was white and creamy like a moisturizer ( it's completely oil free). It was ultra light and was easy to apply with my finger tips.

Step 2: Apply Foundation/Tinted Moisturizer
Laura Mercier is all about a flawless but natural look so I used the Tinted Moisturizer which is great for on the go ( you can apply with your finger tips) The product is very creamy, and a little more opaque than tinted moisturizers I've used before, but definitely not heavy or cakey. The other bonus is it has built in SPF 20 to make sure your skin stays flawless and cancer free for years to come

Step 3: Conceal
Yes I know many women perform this as step 2, but the four step flawless face says conceal after you apply your foundation. Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage concealer is great, but you really must have a brush for proper application. If you aren't use to applying concealer with a brush don't fret it's easy just use a brush to to take color from both color pans and warm the two colors on the back of your hand to create the perfect color for your skin. This guarantees a customized color, and as you know your skin color/tone can change with the season making this mix option perfect

Step 3: Set with Powder
Laura Mercier's Translucent Loose Setting Powder is a once size fit all powder which doesn't add more color to your face, which could make your look cakey and unnatural. The powder will just set your tinted moisturizer or foundation which will allow you minimal shine, and a lasting flawless face.
