For the last so many years my skin has been unbelievably dry, and finally it has normalized.
I still use a power-packed moisturizer but I haven’t used foundation in any form of compact in years. ( I used to be a Lancome’ Dual-Finish girl).
Regular powder, cream to powder, liquid to matte powder finish—nope, nep,nah.
Seriously, I missed how easy it is to use a puff and just powder foundation on.
I began looking longingly at the compacts a few months ago.
I even tried Laura’s Tinted Moisturizer Compact–the salespeople put on Nude or Sand, but I just didn’t care for it-
But you know, the lights in the stores…I can never really see what the foundation or any of the makeup actually looks like until I get outside or in my car mirror.
That’s when the proof hits the pudding–uh–you know what I mean.
So the other day when I had my makeup put on at NM’s event, LM’s national artist put on the compact in Fawn.
And lo and behold – we gotta match! I looked at the color in my car mirror and I never want to admit I look tanner than I want to be-but the color really works.
The last few days since, I’ve joyously been applying the compact foundation (technically tinted moisturizer in a compact) over my Laura Mercier Radiance Primer.
I only put a light light light dusting of MakeUp Forever’s HD Powder to set and finish and I’m off.
If life were as easy as compact makeup.
