mineral pressed powder
What it is: A oil-free pressed foundation that delivers sheer-to-medium coverage and a natural finish with good-for-skin minerals. Who it's for: All skin types. What it does: This creamy, pressed powder version of the brand's Mineral Powder Foundation creates a natural, healthy, youthful glow. It's formulated with natural elements and rich in amino acids, while pearlescent powders give a soft-focus effect for a smooth, natural look. Oil-free and water-resistant, it adheres to skin for a color-true finish that lasts all day and can be used as your main foundation or for touch-ups on-the-go. How to use: For sheer coverage or mistake-proof touchups, use the white flocked side of the applicator. For medium, buildable coverage, use the sponge side. Either way, apply with smooth, even strokes on areas where coverage is needed. Pro tips: For the most flawless, natural look, Laura says it's key to avoid over-applying foundation to the middle of the face-where too much formula can accentuate lines and other imperfections. With liquid, creme or powder, she recommends starting at the outer portion of the face and working inward toward the nose. Focus on one area at a time and be sure to blend well. Avoid excess application around eyes or the contours of the face. Repeat application until desired coverage is achieved. Style Name: Laura Mercier Mineral Pressed Powder. Style Number: 272035.
