Today I have a makeup look inspired by the Laura Mercier Spring 2012 collection. As the name of the collection suggests, this collection comprises of very feminine and romantic colours inspired by fabrics and colours from the Victorian era.
I purchased 5 products from this collection: the eye and cheek palette, Creme Cheek colour in Innocent Peach, Sheer Lip Colour in Kissable Lips and Nude Lips and Lip Shine in Naked Apricot.
Let's take a closer look at the products shall we.
Laura Mercier consistently puts out very impressive palettes and this palette is no exception. The eyeshadows are pigmented and smooth and there is a mixture of different textures to create different looks. The bright pink and peach colour blushes are also perfect for spring.
This product blends well into the skin and it dries down to a velvety finish that gives a very natural look. A sheer layer gives a natural flush of colour but it can definitely be built up for more colour to show (but when built up this colour starts to have a pinkish tone). I have oily skin and this product doesn't feel heavy on the skin but it also doesn't last for too many hours on my skin (around 3-4 hours and it starts to fade).
My attempt to recreate the makeup look from the campaign picture. Here are the products that I used.
- Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation Primer
- Benefit Porefessional
- Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in B20
- Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Pot in SC-2
- Estee Lauder Disappear Smoothing Concealer in 2-light
- Luara Mercier Lingerie Eye and Cheek Palette
- Bobbi Brown Eyeliner Duo in Caviar and Gold
- Helena Rubinstein Lash Queen Waterproof Mascara
- Laura Mercier Creme cheek in Innocent Peach
- Laura Mercier Sheer Lip Colour in Kissable Lips
- Laura Mercier Lip Shine in Naked Apricot
Here's the final look. I used the same colours as the campaign (as listed in the leaflet) but obviously it's not going to look the same on me.
I also didn't use false lashes in order to make the look softer.
My favourite products from this collection are the Kissable Lips sheer lip colour and the Naked Apricot Lip shine. When layered together it gives a glossy peachy coral colour that is ultra pretty in my opinion.
By the way, I am thinking of doing makeup tutorials but would you prefer to see it in a video or pictures and text?
