The Natural Look-Laura Mercier, Mac and Shu Umera
I’ve always been into the natural look, you know, that made-up-natural-look that has been the trend in recent years (or at least as long as I’ve paid attention to fashion and beauty anyways.) And I’ve always been excellent at applying this look, mainly because I always under-apply the makeup and think that I’ve applied too much, and also because it’s actually quite hard to over-apply natural-coloured products. Just yesterday, my colleagues asked whether I actually had makeup on. So either I looked really worn out, or I am indeed an expert at the natural makeup look. I’ll assume I’m the latter, naturally. irst I apply the oil free tinted moisturiser by Laura Mercier. It’s excellent at making one’s skin tone look even and it’s seriously easy to apply -just use a tiny bit and use your fingers to spread a very thin layer on your face. Then I apply blush. I usually use MAC’s Pinch’O’Peach, which is a pale, orangey, mocha colour. But last Sunday, I just bought a blush named Well Dressed, which is pale pink. It really gives me the natural, prettily-blushed look. Then I curl my lashes with my underused Shu Uemura eyelash curler. (But I’m way too lazy to apply mascara, or rather, to remove the mascara at the end of the night. Plus mascara makes my whole look feel made-up.)
Laura Mercier is known for her wearable color. I especially love her powders. They are cashmere soft, beautifully pigmented, and simply foolproof. I'm not an advocate of a ton of makeup or shimmer in the Summer. I think pretty and... Laura Mercier is known for her wearable color. I especially love her powders. They are cashmere soft, beautifully pigmented, and simply foolproof. I'm not an advocate of a ton of makeup or shimmer in the Summer. I think pretty and natural is the best way to go. This eye shadow palette is the perfect collection of coordinated shades for a natural, yet beautifully refined eye. It's perfect for everyday, too. A must have a every girl's cosmetic bag.
