Makeup: Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide Foundation (in the shade "cashew")
Every fall I make one important change to my makeup routine: I switch over from my summer foundation to a fall foundation. The major difference? One is several shades lighter (haha!). I took the opportunity this year to do a little research, and pick a foundation that was a true match for my skin color and type (I have sensitive/combination skin that gets pretty dry in the winter!). Using Nordstrom's Foundation Finder, I answered a few questions about my skin type and it recommended Laura Mercier's Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide Foundation. I went into the store to test it out, and it turns out that I'm a new fan! The foundation is medium coverage and very matte, which I LOVE. I hate for my face to get shiny, and this foundation combats it - since it's a liquid foundation, it's pretty moisturizing at the same time. I also ended up buying the Secret Camouflage Concealer to cover up dark spots & acne (my face is pretty clear of the most part, but I do tend to get hormonal acne on my chin). The concealer & foundation combo is a winner in my book!
P.S. If you're looking for a new lipstick/gloss combo, the one I'm wearing is the BOMB and the perfect fall color for many different skin types. I mixed MAC's "pink plaid" lipstick with Dior's "trompe l'oeil" gloss. It creates a beautiful purple/burgundy/pink color!
Hope everyone has a great Thursday :)
