LAURA’S APPLICATION TECHNIQUES For the most flawless, natural look, Laura says it’s key to avoid over-applying foundation to the middle of the face—where too much formula can accentuate lines and other imperfections. Prep skin with appropriate skincare and primer. Apply a small amount of foundation to the back of the hand. Pick up a small amount with a narrow end of a sponge. With the loaded side, apply foundation onto face, then turn the sponge to the clean side and blend into skin with a pressing and rolling motion. For fuller coverage use a brush. Product sets quickly, so work in small areas and blend as you go. Avoid excess application around eyes or the contours of the face. Repeat application until desired coverage is achieved. KEY
INGREDIENTS/TECHNOLOGY • High-tech, liquid thin mesh seals formula into place and ensures pigments stay in place all day yet feel weightless and comfortable. • Pigments are coated with an advanced natural resin that help them roll effortlessly and gently over the skin, so it won’t drag and applies smoothly and evenly. This improved pigment performance helps color look and wear evenly on skin, so the color won’t change, oxidize or fade over time. • Silky Fine powders like Silica diffuse light so skin looks smooth, pores and fine lines look minimized, while absorbing any oil the skin produces. Smooth Coat Mica helps to control oil and balance the way light hits the skin so that the complexion looks smooth and even – never dull or flat.
