I recently discovered a secret.  It’s Laura Mercier Secret Finish * Mattifying.  Laura Mercier is known for her “Flawless Face” products and this helps me get that look.

The weather has been playing havoc on my face lately – one day it’s cold and dry outside and the next it’s in the 70’s and humid.    I have a love/hate relationship with the humidity.   I like how my skin doesn’t feel like a dried out mess, but I also do not like the slick oily look it creates on my face.  

Secret Finish in Mattifying is a little 1 oz tube of clear, almost primer-like gel.   But, instead of going on before your makeup you can apply this on top of your makeup throughout the day.    It gets rid of the shininess without the cakey dry feeling that some powders can give you.     It doesn’t leave your face dull or dry looking, it looks like normal skin should look and your makeup doesn’t get smeared when you put it on over your makeup. 

I keep one in my desk drawer and use it several times throughout the day.  It’s also small enough to toss in a clutch for going out at evening.
