Laura Mercier Foundation Primers

Step one: Prime the skin

If you didn’t know, Laura Mercier cosmetics were the pioneers of foundation primers. A foundation primer is a colourless gel which helps create a more even skin surface so skin texture appears smoother and it also ensures that makeup stays fresher and lasts longer throughout the day.

To apply, place a five-cent sized dollop on your hand and lightly massage into skin in an outward and downward motion.

Laura Mercier’s foundation primers come in five variants to suit your different skin needs.

For normal and combination skin: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer
For dry or mature skin: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Hydrating
For oily sensitive and acne prone skin: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – oil-free
For a cream to powder finish: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Mineral
For a healthy radiant glow: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Radiance (new)

Step two: Apply Foundation

From liquid foundations to mineral powders, you’ll be able to find the coverage you’ll need for any occasion.

If you’re looking for a product which provides sheer coverage, try Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20. It keeps skin hydrated, evens out skin tone and is long-wearing, fuss-free and great for the weekends.

For medium coverage, try the Laura Mercier Foundation Powder. The formula can be used wet or dry and is great for touch-ups on the go. For more coverage, apply it wet with the enclosed sponge.

If you’re worried about someone catching a close-up picture of you, try Laura Mercier’s Oil Free Foundation. It’s highly pigmented and offers sheer to full coverage.

When attending black-tie events or weddings, try the Laura Mercier Silk Crème Foundation which gives full coverage. This oil-free foundation is extremely long wearing and has light-reflecting qualities to give you a luminous finish.

To conceal dark-eye circles, use Laura Mercier’s Secret Concealer. Specifically designed for the eye area, this concealer glides easily on skin to cover any dark areas and to give your face a brighter look.

With Laura Mercier’s Secret Camouflage, a little product goes a long way. To be applied with a brush, mix the two colours together to custom-blend your own shade to match your skin.

Step four: Set with powder

Setting your makeup with powder extends makeup wear. It also gives makeup a natural and velvety finish.

Laura Mercier recommends setting your makeup with a powder that has no pigment so as not to distort the colour of your makeup.
