spotlight: perfect powders

September 25, 2013

spotlight on foundation powders


If you’re looking for a foundation to add to your makeup regime, here are three perfect powders.

Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Foundation Powder: Medium coverage, semi-matte finish. Laura Mercier used new technology when she created this foundation. There is elastic in the powder, which means that when your skin moves, the pigment moves with it. This prevents the product from settling into the lines in your face.  Bonus: Comes in a compact with a sponge so it’s great on-the-go!
We recommend this foundation if you have oily or combination skin.

Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Powder Foundation: Medium coverage, silky finish. This powder is a finer mill than Laura Mercier’s Smooth Finish Foundation so it is sheerer and offers less coverage.  Comes with a sable brush for sheer application.
We recommend this foundation if you have natural or combination skin.

Hourglass Foundation Powder: This is a pure mineral pressed powder with a satin finish. It’s the sheerest of the three products but you can layer it for more coverage. Hourglass is made with an oxygen-delivering agent that allows the skin to breathe.
This foundation works well on all skin types.
