Are you a fan of the no-makeup, makeup look? It’s one of my favorites, probably because I have zero time to do anything and I basically want to get a 5-minute face and be out the door. We see temps in the high 90’s all summer long in Jersey so I am a huge advocate of less is more and you need some heat-proof summer makeup in your arsenal. A tinted moisturizer is high on the list of must haves and I’ve been trying out the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer – illuminating.
Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer-Illuminating blends two of my favorite things; skincare & makeup. It’s super moisturizing, goes on almost sheer with a luminous radiant glow. A lightweight formula with SPF 20 sunscreen to give you a bit of added protection; I still use another sunscreen first though. I have combination skin and this works fantastic for me, they say it’s perfect for all skin types.
As a fan of tinted moisturizer for my no-makeup makeup routine this one definitely get’s the stamp of approval. It’s barely there color but does a good job of giving you that minimal coverage you need during the summer and a nice radiant glow. I have it in the shade ‘Bare Radiance’ and it blends out to match my skin tone perfectly. It’s sheer but completely buildable so if you’re needing a bit more coverage you can get it; don’t expect full coverage though it’s not that type of product. The formula is similar to a cream foundation product and the tube packaging is easy to use and dispenses properly. I used about a nickel sized amount and apply with my beauty blender. It’s available at Sephora or Macy’s for $43 in a 1.7 tube, it’s a lot of bang for your buck I believe!
