What else you need to know:
Renowned makeup artist Laura Mercier believes that Foundation's true purpose is to even out your skin tone so it looks its very best. Her foundations create a flawless, natural look that lets your skin show through, yet they are distinctly lighter in weight and texture. The aim is to enhance your beauty, not cover it up.
This professional-quality foundation is noncomedogenic, dermatologist-tested, and free of sodium laurel.
-Shape and tap to activate. For each use, first activate the bi-phase formula by shaking vigorously for a minimum of 10 seconds.
-Then, holding the bottle with the cap end up, firmly tap the other end of the package (near the shade label) down onto the counter or your palm, several times. (This is key to ensure that the bottle tip is completely clearand the formula is fully blended).
-Then dispense a small amount onto the back of your hand and apply to face with Laura Mercier Egg-Shaped Sponge or fingertips.
-For best results, use after your preferred Laura Mercier Foundation Primer.
-With a bi-phase formula, it's normal to experience a surge of product when you release the cap after shaking. If the two phases are not fully mixed, shake it a little longer and more vigorously.
-For the most flawless, natural look, Laura Mercier says it's key to avoid over-applying foundation to the middle of the facewhere too much formula can accentuate lines and other imperfections.
-Whether it’s liquid, cream, or powder, it’s recommended to begin at the outer portion of the face and working inward towards the nose.
-Focus on one area at a time and be sure to blend well, especially below the jaw line.
-Avoid excess application around eyes or the contours of the face.
-Repeat application until desired coverage is achieved.
-Hydro-Brilliant Technology: Reflective waters and natural silica provide brilliant, color-true shades.
