– i have always been obsessed with anything that sparkles, whether it be real or rhinestone if it shined i wanted to make it mine. little has changed as I’ve grown older that i don’t find it odd at all that I’m attracted to things that not only sparkle but add glow to other areas, such as my complexion. my first foray into luminous foundations was with cult favorite Luminous Silk Foundation by Giorgio Armani. Pat McGrath helmed the creation of this line which is no wonder, as the product has been on Best Of lists since it’s launch.
– of the other lines that have come out with glow enhancing foundations that i’ve tried such as Lancome Teint Miracle Foundation, Charlotte Tilbury‘s Magic Foundation, Clinique‘s Dewy Smooth, Dior‘s Dior Skin NUDE foundation and many more I had yet to find one outside of a medium to full coverage spectrum until now, read on below to find out more about Laura Mercier’s Candleglow Foundation:
Brand: Laura Mercier
Product: Candleglow Foundation
Coverage: Sheer to Medium
How To Apply: i find the best way to apply this product is with a damp Beauty Blender, lately i have been using Make Up Forever’s Mist and Fix to dampen mine to give me longer staying power and water proofing/sweatproofing my makeup. i don’t find the need to powder my entire face when using this product on my Beauty Blender which really enhances that radiance that an illuminating foundation can give you. this foundation is so sheer that if you were to apply it with a traditional foundation brush it would streak, that’s why a sponge of any kind is recommended.
Results: don’t expect cake face with this product, it’s very sheer but can be built upon by doing layers thus leaving your skin looking more natural. if you’re like me and like a medium to full coverage look then this foundation may not be for you, however, i still liked the finish once my concealer was applied in the areas i require more coverage.
Where To Find: most often you can find us picking up our Laura Mercier products at the counter in Holt Renfrew but you can also find your Candleglow Foundation at Sephora, online and at Nordstrom in Canada.
