In case you didn’t know (& I am working on a ’35 things you don’t know about me’ post) I use to be a makeup artist. For like 6 months, LOL. It was only because in the beginning as a photographer I didn’t know any artists who didn’t charge a Prada shoe to do makeup. This is before I made friends with my besties and I now trade services. But I’ve always loved makeup. I love getting dolled up even more than I love fashionable clothes (I’d rather just write about them, kinda). But anyways …
I was recently asked to try Laura Mercier’s Flawless Face products which comes with 4 easy steps. I was pretty geeked because Number 1 – I get to add more goodies to my little baby makeup kit and Number 2 – I wanted this brand to work for me. A few of my MUA friends really love this brand for the brown girls but when I tried the tinted moisturizer, which I later determined just doesn’t make sense to me at all, it was very orange in color.
Inside the box were 4 items and instructions. This was extremely cute although I am familiar with what each product does. I used them for 3 days straight and here’s what I thought…
Laura believes there are four steps to create a flawless face—primer, foundation, concealer, and setting powder. Each product has been specifically developed to allow every woman to achieve an incredibly even, smooth, yet natural-looking complexion. Here’s my before and after.. My skin is pretty clear to begin with but my issue is finding a foundation that blends all my browns. I think we have a winner!
I am totally in love with how even my skin appears after using this product. And more importantly it took maybe 7 minutes to apply. GOTTA LOVE THAT!
