For a head start on glowy skin, use Laura Mercier’s Foundation Primer – Radiance.

Laura Mercier

Birchbox Breakdown

Life is full of fleeting pleasures—don’t let your makeup job be one of them. This liquid-to-powder primer ensures that your mineral foundation stays just where it belongs: on your face. The sheer gel absorbs instantly and clings to both pressed and loose mineral powder. Bonus: It serves up a veritable feast of skin-improving antioxidants and minerals.

How it Works

This fast-absorbing formula gives your mineral makeup a freshly applied finish that lasts all day. Antioxidant white tea and lycii berry help protect skin, while minerals like zinc and copper promote healing.

How to Use

After applying sunscreen or moisturizer, massage a generous amount of mineral primer into skin. (Pro tip: Stick this tube in the fridge 15-20 minutes before use. The cooled gel will have a delightful depuffing effect on skin.)

Best Primer

I have used this primer for several years. Not greasy and allows makeup to last longer. I use this with the tinted moisterizer and results leave a nice dewy glow. I always get compliments.

Nice!

I have a couple of pimples and I definitely noticed a difference in their visibility with vs without primer, it made my makeup much smoother
