Available in 24 shades for almost any skin tone, Laura Mercier's Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation is the perfect foundation to give you a luminous glow to your skin. Look like you are in candlelight anytime of the day with this foundation. It does this with a calibrated blend of radiant pearl mic, embedded in an ultra-lightweight , sheer to medium buildable formula, that mimic the reflective glow of just lit candles. The mixture mingles with refreshing purified water to give skin a burst of hydration and helps foundation glide onto skin for lasting smoothness and natural luminosity. A luxurious blend of lightweight oils locks in this moisture to leave skin balanced, soft and beautifully lit from within. The color stays true without the formula settling into fine lines, wrinkles or pores.
The easiest way to apply the foundation is with a foundation sponge or with fingertips. I use my beautyblender. Definitely use over the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer. Place a small amount of foundation on the back of your hand and pickup formula with the narrow end of a dampened Laura’s Foundation Sponge or a beautyblender. Using the narrow end of the sponge, apply foundation to the face working on one area at a time. Laura Mercier recommends starting at the outer portion of the face and working inwards towards the nose. Avoid excess application around the contours of the face. Blend well with the wide end of the sponge. Repeat application until desired coverage is achieved.
I love that there is great coverage with this foundation. It is sheer to medium but it really does have more of a medium buildable coverage. And the foundation glows on the skin like candlelight. It looks amazing. This is one of my favorite foundations of all time. I wear Creme, which is the lightest shade (Fair with Cool to Neutral undertones). It looks good on my very light skin, without any problems of the shade being too dark. This foundation wears well in normal conditions (low heat, low humidity). It lasts all day long. It applies well, blends well into the skin, so that you cannot even see it, it looks like you are not even wearing foundation. This foundation does not leave the skin looking too "glowy" either. It leaves the skin looking ethereal, which is why I like it so much. The skin glow but does not look too shiny.
