Bridal Makeup Looks: Laura Mercier for Marchesa 2013

by jaime on April 21, 2012

Laura Mercier created an exclusive look for Wednesday’s Marchesa Bridal Spring 2013 Runway Show, previewing what blushing brides will be coveting next year.

For the Marchesa Bridal Spring 2013 Runway Show, Talia Shobrook, lead makeup artist for the show, was inspired by the fashionable and fresh Marchesa bride-to-be. The makeup look she created was whimsical and effervescent. By carefully selecting a palette of warm and diffused colours, she was able to develop the natural flush that people love for brides, evoking a woman that is both innocent and sensual.

FACE: According to Shobrook, “flawless skin with a fresh and dewy finish was the foundation of the look.”

EYES: According to Shobrook, “we chose to highlight the eye, to add to the allure that a bride’s sparkling eyes have on her wedding day.”

  • First, Talia mixed Laura Mercier Sateen Eye Colours Stellar and Primrose and applied them on the lid from lashline to the crease.
  • Next, she softly contoured the crease with Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Fresco.
  • Using Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Ballet Pink, she dipped a Laura Mercier Fine Point Eye Liner Brush into water and swirled around the Eye Colour to pick up the product, then drew a line across the lashline, with a slight flick at the outer corner. The eyeliner should be thin, and bright.
  • On the lower lashline, she used a Laura Mercier Flat Eye Liner Brush to apply Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Truffle just at the lashline and blended slightly to soften.
  • Lastly, she finished with a layer of Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara and another layer of Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Lash Building Mascara to the lashes in the center of the eye.

LIPS & CHEEKS: “By using the same product on the eyes and lips, we allow the fresh-faced bride to only have to carry one product for touch-ups. The creamy formula adds a lovely natural flush to the face,” Shobrook concluded.

  • On the cheeks, Talia applied Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Mango (NEW, launching September 2012) to the apples of the cheeks and blended to give a natural flush in the face. The result is a creamy smooth natural cheek color.
  • The look was finished with the punchy Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Mango (NEW, launching September 2012) blended onto the lips as well.

Do you love this look as much as I do?

Love,
Jaime
