Luckily I have had the luxury of having a Mom that is a cosmetologist so when I started getting interested in finding the perfect foundation she was able to point me in the right direction. Make up and skin care has always been super important to me and even at 16 and what little money I made then I still made sure I could buy my Merle Norman tinted moisturizer! Now I have ventured and tried MANY other brands but I always end up going back to Merle Norman. I have sensitive skin so I learned most brands left me with break outs and nobody likes that! During the summer months I use their tinted moisturizer but now that it’s getting closer to the cooler months I switch to an actual foundation. What I love about the Perfecting Foundation is how great the coverage is yet how still breathable it is. The first thing you will notice when applying is that it feels like silk as you glide it across your skin. I also use the dual action concealer and follow-up with a loose powder. The foundation usually lasts a good 3 months before having to purchase again and the loose powder literally lasts forever! OK maybe not forever but I seriously can’t even remember when I bought it last. Well worth the money! A few other things I keep in my bag that I can’t live without is my L’Oreal false fiber mascara, my Sigma kabuki brush, and my L’Oreal Eva’s red lipstick.
