The Perks of Being a Makeup Addict

I am obsessed with makeup-- in a good way! I love to give my opinion on products and give tips on how to use them. I also like to show my own creations. Have any questions about a product? I'm glad to answer to the best of my knowledge. i'm also open to any requests :)

Laura Mercier- Tinted Moisturizer (Original) ($42)
In a nutshell:
Very light feel
Fragrance free
Sunscreen (20 SPF)
Gives a healthy looking glow 
It was love at first application… haha. But really, it was! This is a tinted moisturizer. Meaning that it is a moisturizer with some color in it to camouflage redness and little blemishes. Now, this is not a foundation, although it is definitely one of the more pigmented tinted moisturizers I’ve seen on the market. So, if you’re looking to hide acne then I would not recommend this product. However, you do not need perfect skin for this! I don’t have perfect skin, so neither do you. It’s a good thing to let some imperfections shine through — leave the flawless, airbrush look to the models in magazines :) This is my go to TM because it gives such a health appearance by giving a glowy/dewy look. If you have oily skin this may seem like a turn off to you, but no worries; this comes in an oil-free version as well! The packaging is great because it comes in a squeeze tube so you get every last drop. Plus, you get 1.5 fl oz of product which is quite a bit!
Colors: (From very fair to dark)Porcelain (very fair skin), Nude (Light beige/fair-light skin), Bisque (Light/Neutral skin), Sand (light-medium skin), Fawn (Medium skin w/ pink undertones), Almond (rich brown/medium skin), Caramel (light tan & olive skin w/ yellow undertones), Tan (medium-dark skin), Walnut (deep skin tones), Mocha (deep complexions w/ yellow and red undertones) 
Where to buy: www.sephora.com, www.lauramercier.com, Sephora stores.
