NYFW recap: Laura Mercier with Jenny Packham

Well Purty,
NYFW 2013 is officially over and here is a wee makeup set from Laura Mercier with Jenny Packham.
I love, love love the Sterling shadow. I can't wait for Spring, I need this shadow for Holiday. Stat!

Enjoy the recap!

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week
Jenny Packham - Spring 2014 Collection

Look created by Talia Shobrook for Laura Mercier

Inspired by the exquisite styling of the 1975 cult classic film, “Picnic at Hanging Rock,” Packham’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection represents a “seventies take on austere Edwardian attire.” The makeup look for the show, created by Talia Shobrook for Laura Mercier, further highlights the contrast between the eras, combining a “flush of innocence with a hint of naughtiness.”

Face:  Flawless skin with a youthful glow 

·         Talia prepped the skin with Laura Mercier Foundation Primer, $32.

·         Next, she applied Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Sunrise, $24 to the model’s cheekbones.

·         Then, she applied Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer – Oil Free Broad Spectrum SPF Sunscreen, $43 all over the face.

·         She concealed minor skin imperfections using Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage, $32.

·         Adding the final touch to the skin, Talia applied Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Radiance, $32 to the T-Zone. This gave the skin a beautiful, illuminated and youthful glow.


Lips: Feminine, rosy lips

Eyes: Subtle lashes allowed the eyes to sparkle

·         Talia used a silver eye glitter that was specially made for this show to accentuate the eyes. For a similar look, apply a thick layer of Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Sterling, $26.
·         Next she filled in the eyebrows using Laura Mercier Eye Brow Pencil, $22.
·         To complete the look, Talia applied one swipe of Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Lash Building Mascara, $24 – keeping the lashes very subtle.
