Laura Mercier summer 2012 color story: Belle Nouveau

Laura’s inspiration for 2012 draws from her background as a fine art painter and focuses on the mood and attitude of  women through different art periods.

This summer Laura, invites you to escape to a dream world that explores creativity through colour, inspired by Art Nouveau’s innovative spirit and painted posters.

A sugary of happy tones in sheer textures sets the mood. Powdery soft but daring, playful and very romantic. New and limited in the collection is the long lash mascara in blue, which I like.

Use the mascara on top of a black version, you’ll be surprised by the effect. The caviar stick in the It- color turquoise is of course a definite must have. A flawless smokey eye in 30 seconds. The sheer creme eye color collection contains three fesh water colors: Mauve Pastel, Grey Pastel, Aqua Pastel. Very blendable and easy to mix.

Be a little daring by playing around with colors that bring sophistication without strong definition. I love the highlights as they include sheer milky pastel eyes and translucent lips printed in colour. Skin is illuminated with a soft, healthy touch of bronzer and glow. Just as we like it!
