Earlier this week I had the opportunity to meet with the Laura Mercier team at their Headquarters in NYC to get my makeup done and talk beauty tips and skin advice! We started by having a quick chat about my skin so that they would know which products would be best for me. I already have their Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen and Foundation Primer Radiance in my makeup drawer so I was excited to try more Laura Mercier products!
Gabriella (global makeup artist apart of Laura’s team) told me makeup is like a manicure, you need to apply your base coat (moisturizer, primer, eye cream) two coats of polish (foundation, bronzer, blush) and your top coat (powder). Laura Mercier is known for her speciality of creating a flawless face and that’s exactly how I felt my face looked once my makeup was finished! The thing I loved the most was that I didn’t feel like I had makeup caked onto my face, everything blended and looked so natural. The products enhanced and complemented rather than transforming and covering my face.
Here are a few of the products they used along with more of my favorites…
In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!
