Beauty Soundbites: The Bare Necessity

s905364-main-Lhero“I created this product because I wanted to give skin a fresh, healthy, no-makeup look with a soft hint of color that evens and enhances without hiding the skin.”

—Laura Mercier

Those of you who have experimented with the varying coverage of skin perfecting formulas can attest that the heavy-duty foundations almost always leave behind a cake-like residue. And while your skin suffocates underneath, you’re left to dodge direct sunlight at every opportunity. One approach to marginalizing a possible makeup meltdown is by ditching full coverage foundation in favor of the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Oil Free Broad Spectrum SPF20.

Laura Mercier, a pioneering member of the pore police, invented this cult beauty product, which fuses moisturizer together with color-correcting pigments. This product has inspired the legions of BB creams that have flooded the beauty halls ever since.

As the lightest form of canvas corrector, this vitamins C, E, and antioxidant-packed formula, will nourish your skin, protect it from harmful aggressors, and help conceal surface imperfections, all without clogging your pores. Adapted from the original formula, the oil-free version is designed with combination and oily skins in mind.

Applied directly to a just-cleansed face, this product ensures that your t-zone stays shine-free while still managing to provide a natural radiance to the skin. To prep for the long haul, finish with a dusting of setting powder and you’ll still look like a barefaced beauty—no mask required.
