The Palette in Use!

Back in February Laura Mercier released a beautiful palette for her Lingerie Collection and I mentioned that I would show you the palette in use, on a model.
I had the chance to use the palette recently.......

 (These are screen grabs of the video. Watch the video on the link above)

It was perfect for this as the look was very feminine, sexy, soft and elegant. 

The palette itself contains 6 powder eye shadows and two larger powder blushes.
Luster Eye Colour in Buff Pearl = Slightly pink, gleamy pearl
Sateen Eye Colour in Tawny Apricot = Pinky orange base with a slight blue iridescence 
Matte Eye Colour in Rich Cocoa= Perfect rich brown
Matte Eye Colour in Pale Pink = Very milky beige pink
Luster Eye Colour in African Violet = Purple pink base with gold shimmer and gleam
Matte Eye Colour in Black Plum = Deep purple navy in matte

Second Skin Cheek Colour in Rose Desire (at the top) = Blue toned rosy pink 
Second Skin Cheek Colour in Fresh Peach = Perfect soft dusty peach

(All shades, except African Violet and Black Plum, are exclusive to this palette)

All really satin soft, not powdery at all. Great colours and really versatile, as you can see these were used on quite a pale model and looked amazing, they look great on medium skin tones and most of them (apart from the pale pink) would be gorgeous on darker skin also. 

I also used Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation for that slight vintage feeling matte skin, along with Laura Mercier Secret Finish down the nose and on tops of the cheek bones. 

Let me know if you have any questions on the palette or any other Laura Mercier products!

Love Le Riche xx
