Laura MercierMini Translucent Loose Setting Powder - Honey
Formulation: Loose Powder
Skin Type: Normal, Dry, Combination, and Oily
What Else You Need to Know: This award-winning powder locks in makeup for long-lasting wear without adding weight or texture. It absorbs oil and reduces shine all day, creating a flawless, matte finish with no flashback in photos. This truly translucent powder creates a soft-focus effect to subtly blur fine lines and imperfections.
Its three shades work for virtually all skin tones: Translucent (perfect for fair-to-medium and tan tones), Translucent Honey (sets medium tones with olive, warm, and golden undertones), and Translucent Medium Deep (ideal for medium-deep to deep tones).
Clinical Results: In a consumer test on 32 women after 2 weeks:
- 100% said it is lightweight and does not look cakey on skin
- 100% said it controls and reduces shine
- 97% said it absorbs excess oil
-Preparing the puff is key: Press Laura Mercier‘s Velour Puff (sold separately) into the loose powder, then work the powder into the puff by folding and rubbing the halves together or tapping the powdered side vigorously on the back of the hand.
-Gently press puff onto skin, using a rolling motion to work the powder in.
-Apply after any creamy formulas including cream blush.
Pro techniques for medium skin tones:
-Tone down redness by spot setting areas using the Velour Puff.
-Apply all over if your face has more pink or cool undertones than neck and body.
-Brighten olive complexions by applying all over, using the Velour Puff. The peachy undertone in the powder will help give life to the skin for a fresh and healthy appearance.
-To soften a too-intense blush, apply a layer with the Velour Puff using a pressing and rolling motion. Continue adding layers until blush has reached the desired intensity.
-For a seamless eye look, apply using the Laura Mercier Finishing Pony Tail Brush (sold separately) to blend any uneven-looking eye shadow.
Pro techniques for medium skin tones and medium-deep to deep skin tones:
-Set and brighten the tone of the under-eye area by picking up a small amount with the Laura Mercier Camouflage Powder Brush (sold separately). Tap off excess and press into the under-eye area to set concealer. This technique adds additional light coverage.
-Create a subtle highlight with light coverage by lightly setting areas where brightness is desired: the cheek bones, along the jawline, and above the brows.
