Start the new year off with a fresh new look. We’ve put together 2 looks to take you through from workday to weekend.
Workday: Sophisticated Smoky Eye
To get this look:
Start with Laura Mercier Moisture Supreme for all day wear and then set with Laura Mercier Smooth Foundation Powder using a foundation brush – this gives more even coverage without looking cakey. To banish dark circles we recommend Laura Mercier High Coverage Under Eye Concealer , applied with the Taklon Concealer Brush for even coverage.
To create the elongated smokey eye use a lighter colour such as Laura Mercier Eye Colour in Guava for the lids and then shade the crease and corners using darker shades such as Plum Smoke and Twilight Grey. To make sure the colour is blended smoothly we recommend using the Medium Angled Eyeshadow Blender. Lastly add extra definition around the eyes using a non-smudging eyeliner, try Laura Mercier Long Wear Eye Pencil.
Weekend: Bronze Beauty
To get this look:
To get a sunkissed glow, prep the skin using SPF 30+ Foundation Primer combined with Warm Radiance SPF 20+ Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer. For even application use a Foundation Brush or sponge rather than fingers. Use the Undercover Pot to get rid of any redness, uneven skin tones or dark circles – the blendable colours make colour matching to your skin tone easy. For smooth application we recommend the Taklon Concealer Brush.
For the eyes we combined Caviar Sticks in Sand Glow and Cocoa to create a natural but contoured colour on the eyelids. Seashell, Moonlight or Burnished Bronze are good alternatives. Caviar Sticks are best applied with your fingers, but if you prefer can be applied with the smudge/shade brush. To define the cheekbones, contour the face using bronzer or pressed mineral powder. Apply using an angled brush such as the White Angle Brush for better coverage.
