Spotlighting the dewy makeup that lends complexions a candlelit radiance.
Written By Jayme Cyk
During a meeting at their New York offices, members of Laura Mercier’s product development team handed us samples of their dewy foundation. The creamy formulation, which promises light-to-medium coverage, melted in like second skin and imparted a luminous glow with a velvety-soft feel. We brought it back to VIOLET GREY headquarters and shared it with a community of makeup aficionados at our recent vetting event. The results? The foundation was a unanimous favorite among the ten artists that tested it—and a shoo-in for our curation.
ON SET: Simultaneously sheer, creamy, and buildable for those days your skin needs to be HD camera-ready.
ON THE RED CARPET: Proven to deliver a flawless, dewy complexion (read: skin as stunning as your ensemble).

ON THE VANITY: The lush foundation keeps skin moisturized all day long.
“This formula has a gorgeous light-to-medium coverage that replicates naturally glowing skin.” —Jeffrey Baum, Makeup Artist
