Collection: Laura Mercier Holiday 2011

Products Used:
Petite Eye Color Trio in Smoky Mauves $25.00
The Mini Lip Glace Set $38.00

How To: I used the lightest shade, a seriously pale ivory with pink undertones, and swept it from lash line to brow bone, adding more shadow to the brow bone to highlight the area. I applied the medium mauve (iridescent) shade on my entire lid. and used the darkest shade, a deep mauve, in the crease. I swept it out and continued under the lower lash line for a very sexy, smoky look. Yes, you can do a smoky eye with any color range (not just black or brown). On lips, I chose the lightest of the 5 shades – “sparkling,” a sheer, iridescent seashell – in order to stay true to the classic smoky eye/ pale  lip combo. The result: a fabulously festive plum eye and soft, glossy lip.

Did You Know: The lip glaze set comes with 5 super sexy glossy shades. Mix and match different lip hues with the same eye to create an entirely new you.


*Unless otherwise noted, face makeup is: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in #6; RMS Beauty “Un”Cover-Up in #22. Brows are Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel in Espresso. Mascara is Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara in Deep Black.

    Your blog is at the very top of my “daily reads” list for the past 4 years, that being said, the look you are wearing in this post is one of, if not my absolute favorite looks that you have ever posted!
    You look beyond stunning….you are GLOWING!
    Could you please post what brushes you used to apply each color?
    I know that brushes make all the difference in the world when it comes to application!
