Have Merci(er)

This Mother’s Day, I got to hang with the Original Gangstas: my mom, grandma, great aunt, and cousin. There were plenty of laughs and thankfully only one aborted attempt to house a piece of silverware. Not even a biscuit made its way into a handbag!  I found myself staring at my grandma and great aunt (87 & 88 respectively, though their ages are questionable.  I believe they were those ages last year). I realized that they seriously don’t look their age. And their beauty regimens are nothing like our high-falutin’ routine: cleanse, tone, moisturize, SPF protect.

I promise to pay more attention to what they use, but until then, you can totally fake a perfect complexion while allowing your skin to breathe. Warm weather season is the perfect time to ditch your foundation and get into a lightweight tinted moisturizer like Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer ($42).

It’s so sheer that it doesn’t even have to be the perfect match like foundation, but if you want more coverage, you can layer more on. Plus, it truly glides on and melts into your skin!
