Place a small amount on the back of your hand and apply to clean skin with fingertips; mirror optional! Laura recommends starting at the outer portion of the face and working inwards toward the nose. Avoid excess application around the contours of the face. Repeat application until desired coverage is achieved for the fastest No Makeup, Makeup look. For best results, use after your preferred Laura Mercier Pure Canvas Primer. For extended wear, follow with Translucent Loose Setting Powder.
