I recently purchased Laura Mercier's Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 in Golden Radiance ($42). I had first received a generous sample at Neiman's. It took a little practice to get the hang of how to maximize its potential...a natural glow vs. a phosphorescent gleam...fortunately, practice does make perfect.
One of the things that people love about Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizers, is that it does provide a bit of coverage and a little goes a long way.
Here are three ways to look lit from within:
- Mix one part Illuminating Moisturizer with one part regular tinted moisturizer or foundation in the palm of your hand and apply with fingertips, a sponge or a foundation brush
- First use a light dusty of matte bronzing powder then dab Illuminating Moisturizer on tops of cheekbones, the bow of the lip and at the temples
- Try it straight up, but tamp down the shimmer with a damp sponge and finish with a dusting of finely milled powder
