I'm Lovin' : tinted moisturizer

Tinted Moisturizer- Foundation is so tricky. I have yet to find the exact right one for me now that the sun damage from my teens has come to give me payback, so I stick with my tried and true Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer for now. A bit of coverage, but not so much you look like you are wearing a mask. The new illuminating version is best left to those without anything to hide, it's much sheerer than the original.
Oh, and pick up her translucent loose powder to set the tinted moisturizer.  It is the best!

Also, for those that want to spend a little less, during the summer I started using Olay Difinity Color Recapture.  It had a lighter coverage than the tinted moisturizure, which I liked for summer.  However, my sister-in-law tried it and did not like it.  It didn't work well with her sensitive skin.  I however, never had a problem and have liked it.  So, I guess this products depends on your skin type.  It is supposed to help with discoloration, wrinkles, dullness, and brown spots...all the problems my face is dealing with!  Help me! 
I found this product for a great deal at Costco.

For those days that I need extra help, I will use a mineral powder foundation.  After trying several kinds, I still really like the feel and coverage of bearMinerals. With four kids to get ready, I can never seem to get myself fully ready and out of the house on time.  So, I usually end up putting my make-up on in the car at lights or in parking lots.  So, my only hang-up with this product is that it is a loose powder and therefore can be quite messy, especially in the car.  I need to just get in the habit of putting it on in the house or find a pressed mineral foundation that I like.  I've tried a few, but yet have found one that I love... 
So, until I find a new one, this is my go-to powder foundation.

  1. Hi Alisa! I'm sorry I didn't get to see you too, but I completely understand. It was very last minute! I'll have to plan better next time I come home.
    So I love bare minerals and I don't think I'll ever be able to go back to foundation. If you like tinted moisturizer try Estee lauder, they have one I LOVED - from my Nordy days. I really miss that discount!
    Happy halloween! Loves
