My skin always looks shiny. I prefer to call it glow-y, but peeking at photos of myself, I can see that it doesn’t really work on camera (or off for that matter, my boy always asks me why I look “oily”). I’m anti-powder, though, since it always seems to settle into your little lines and age you. But I had to get something to control my T-zone shine, so I went to my go-to beauty brand, Le Métier de Beauté, for their Flawless Finish loose powder in both translucent and #1. To my surprise, the translucent shade didn’t settle into my skin, giving it a soft “finished” look instead. The #1 offered more coverage, but still had the same pretty glow. The powder is triple milled to a silky consistency and is free of parabens and oils (in fact, it absorbs your excess oil), so it looks natural rather than poured on. I love how the powder evens out your tone and makes you look luminous, so I used it daily over my Peau Vierge (if you haven’t bought a bottle of Peau Vierge yet, you are missing out!) during New York Fashion Week. Turns out others were equally impressed with LMDB. No matter how little sleep I got, the first thing everyone, including the snarkiest celeb critics alive – Tom and Lorenzo – marveled at was my skin. Finally a powder that doesn’t make me look like an Empress dowager! Check out how it looked on me at Oscar de la Renta (photo taken by the lovely Annabel Tollman). Available at Le Métier de Beauté for $50.
