Covering Bases | 3 SKIN PERFECTING PRODUCTS to Try Right Now

ROSE & IVY Journal 3 Skin Perfecting Products Autumn 2016 Chanel, Lauara Mercier and CLE Cosmetics

The change of seasons is a great time to experiment with new foundations and concealers.  Now that cooler temperatures are upon us, I like to switch foundations, since the summer months when temperatures are high a tinted moisturizer is pretty much all that I do.  Here are three skin perfecting products, from a matte-wearing foundation to a glow-inducing concealer to try right now.

CHANEL Le Teint Ultra Tenue Ultrawear Flawless Foundation

I typically gravitate towards foundations that do not have a matte finish, however, I decided to give this foundation a whirl and definitely liked the results.  While it takes a little bit of effort to buff into the skin, it stayed put on the skin all day.  As I get older, my skin tends to be a bit drier, so before applying I applied my moisturizer, an oil, then the foundation.

There is only one word to describe how I feel about this product and it would be 'obsessed'! I have tried many products along the lines of a tinted moisturizer, but have never found something that makes instantly transforms the look of my skin.  This unique formula starts out as white, but transforms into your skins color, thanks to the Micro Capsule Technology.  After applying, your skin is left looking so healthy -  you know with that type of glow you only hope to achieve after piling on the moisturizer? Plus, it includes a primer, foundation and sun protection.  I recommend this product and then some.

If you haven't tried Laura Mercier's Candleglow Luminous Foundation, then you should - just like the name eludes, this foundation gently illuminates the skin making it truly look flawless.  It is one of my favorite foundations to use, it provides a bit more coverage than a tinted moisturizer and glides seamlessly on the skin.  Now, the brand debuts the concealer and it is just as good.  The pen format, outfitted with a super soft applicator brightens the under eyes, without seeping into fine lines.  My main concern is dark circles, this definitely helps conceal them in a beautiful way.
