I've done some research through the internet and it seemed like everyone is raving about Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer. ..when Sephora chose this as this year's best tinted moisturizer, I knew I just have to get one.
Though it was pretty painful to my pocket, I got the big tube at around HKD400 at Faces, HK. I got the oil free (yes they have oil free ver!) in Sand shade...and the rest my dear is history... I just couldn't stop bragging about this product.

2. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer: Sheer, buildable coverage that hydrates the skin, softening and easing fine dry lines. Color stays true and wears evenly leaving a natural dewy finish.
5. LAura Mercier Camouflage Powder Brush: Perfect size and shape to set Secret Camouflage and Secret Concealer with Loose Setting Powder because it allows you to work in smaller areas. Unique synthetic hairs are designed to pickup and distribute powder precisely and evenly.
6. Laura Mercier Velour Puff:Specially designed texture, molds and conforms as needed to apply powder to all areas of the face.
OK, I seldom do this but for the sake of Laura Mercier I will use my own face for a before and after demo :)
Of course I had to start with spritzing my face with my favorite Shu Deep Sea Water just to make my skin supple. Then on to the 4 steps!
That's me going bare in public for the first time, as you can see, uneven skin tone,dark under eye, breakouts, blackheads all rolled into one :))
STEP 1: Place a pea-size amount of Foundation Primer into your hand and stimulate the skin by lightly massaging in an outward and downward motion onto the face with fingertips.
STEP2: Place a dime-size amount of Tinted Moisturizer into hand and pickup with sponge then apply from the outward portion of the face inwards towards the nose.
minimize darkness or shadows under the eye area.
