I am all about paring down my makeup for summer. I believe that as we age, less foundation looks better. In the summer months, I especially like the less is more approach. Here is my routine:
After cleansing and moisturizing, I apply a primer. I am absolutely in LOVE with Tatcha’s “The Silk Canvas Protective Primer”. It is sold at Sephora. It is luxuriously applied and creates beautiful silk canvas. I sometimes wear it alone over my SPF moisturizer and find that my skin looks radiant.
In the summer, I like to have a little glow to my skin. I am an enormous fan of this bronzing gel by Sisley. I mix it with my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, (complete with SPF) and it glides on over the Tatcha primer perfectly evenly and stays put all day. I love the fact that it is sheer, and the little boost of color that it gives my face makes me glow from the inside out!
