What it is: A powder foundation with second-skin comfort that can be applied wet or dry for sheer-to-full coverage and a matte or natural finish. Who it's for: All skin types. What it does: This revolutionary lightweight, oil-free foundation powder blurs the line between real skin and makeup, creating a natural, long-wearing, color-true veil. It effortlessly evens your complexion, smoothing and perfecting skin's appearance. Created to move with your skin, the comfortable formula flexes easily without settling into fine lines. Water-resistant, it feels light and fresh and wears all day, instantly reducing shine, evening skin tone, hydrating and visibly reducing lines and pores. It comes with a sponge for easy application. How to use: For sheer to medium coverage, use the dry sponge. Apply just as you would a pressed powder. Avoid the eye area. For medium to full coverage, dampen the sponge then smooth the powder onto your face. For best results, use after your preferred foundation primer. Pro tips: For the most flawless, natural look, Laura says it's key to avoid over-applying foundation to the middle of the face-where too much formula can accentuate lines and other imperfections. With liquid, creme or powder, she recommends starting at the outer portion of the face and working inward toward the nose. Focus on one area at a time and be sure to blend well. Avoid excess application around eyes or the contours of the face. Repeat application until desired coverage is achieved. Style Name: Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Foundation Powder.
