Face powder is one of those products I’ve always carried with me. In high school, I would always ask my BFF Zoe if my face was shiny.

After two weeks of trying varying combinations of Laura Mericer Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer , Jouer Matte Moisture Tint, and various primers I reached for one of my faves, Vapour Organic Atmosphere Luminous Foundation.
