In the face of it all

Lots of people have asked me in work and on twitter what foundation I've been using,  well if your a reader of my posts you will know I'm a fan of Nars Sheer Glow, but I've had a foundation change around and I'm currently using Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation, with The Laura Mercier hydrating primer and using my trusty Real Techniques brush.

Why do I like the foundation, well it makes my skin look flawless, and airbrushed.  

As with everything the base has to be good hence why I use my primer, after all you wouldn't paint without sanding down would you.  

The stippling brush is what I use to really work the foundation into my skin and it works. 

The only thing I don't like about the foundation is the smell: it's like a cross between talcum powder and a perfume that I wouldn't like.  But once the foundation is on your skin you can't smell it anymore, and the effect it gives you is so good I can live with that.
