There are numerous factors that might contribute to one’s decision to skip on the foundation. Humid weather that only adds to that icky feeling, a cakey base that doesn’t look like skin, heaviness–these are just a few examples. This is why many have opted to take part of the growing natural skin movement instead, focusing on skincare for a glowing complexion.
But like it or not, there will still be times when your skin might act up. Perhaps that time of the month is looming or maybe things have been a little stressful at work. Whatever the reason, a little coverage won’t hurt. This is where a new favorite comes in: the Laura Mercier Flawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation (P2450).
Upon application, the Flawless Lumière makes your skin naturally glow with ingredients such as Silver Mushroom Extract for 15 hours of hydration and Vitamin C for improved skin radiance over time. Perfect for everyday use, the product blends easily on the skin and is comfortably light.
“What’s great about this product is that you can choose to do light coverage or build it up for full coverage on those nights out. Either way, you’ll still look radiant,” Laura Mercier makeup artist Jaja Pangilinan told me as she applied the weightless product on my face.
Almost instantly, the blemishes and mild redness that I was dealing with that day disappeared. As I went on with my day, I completely forgot that I had foundation on, as the finish was very natural. It was a nice reminder that when it comes to your face, your skin can take center stage as well.
The Laura Mercier Flawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation will be available in Rustan’s Makati, Shangri-la, Alabang, Gateway and Cebu starting February 2019. For more information on the product, follow @lauramercier and @rustansthebeautysource on Instagram.
