Glow from the Get Go with Laura Mercier's Foundation Primer Radiance.

Long gone are the days of shimmer and sparkle for me. Shimmer powder may give me the glow that I crave, but they do something I don't want - they accentuate my fine lines. Ugh. It sort of defeats the purpose, especially as glow = younger. I want to look lit from within.

Laura Mercier must have heard my call as her newest foundation primer, Laura Mercier Foundation Primer - Radiance gives me the perfect lit from with in look while prepping my skin for my foundation and the rest of my makeup.

This primer applies clear, but diffuses any lines and wrinkles on my face while making it simply look better with a slight glow.  When I apply my concealer and foundation, my skin still looks diffused and radiant. A pearl sized amount is all I need to do my entire face and throat. Yes, I apply this on my throat (neck) as I definitely need the light diffusing help here. I do not look sparkley or shimmery. It is more of a mother of pearl looking type of glow. My skin is left silky smooth and primed for makeup application.

After my makeup is on, I can even dab and blend a tiny amount of this primer on the tops of my cheekbones and on my brow bone for an extra bit of light. Who would have thought a foundation primer could give me such a beautiful, soft glow from the get-go? Plus, help my makeup go on smoother and last longer, looking perfect throughout the day? Thanks, Laura! This product is certainly going to keep a spot on my vanity.

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance sells for $30 and is available online at as well as Sephora and Nordstrom.
