Rich shades of gold, red, and black dominates Laura Mercier’s Holiday 2012 makeup collection which was launched last Wednesday at Prive Bonifacio Global City in Taguig.
As a fine art painter Laura Mercier was inspired by the decorative architecture, style and mood of the Art Deco period in Paris in the mid-1920’s where paintings of artist Tamara de Lempicka was very prominent. For the Holiday 2012 makeup collection Laura created rich makeup shades of gold, red and black to beautifully contrast each other and add sharp definition that is geometrical, powerful and beautifully ornamental.
Jeffrey Tasker, Global Makeup Artist for Laura showed us the looks that he created using the new collection.
The Look. Golds and bronzes are paired with high-shine reds and deep blacks to make this eye-catching colour collection stand out. Eyes are sharply designed and defined —lined in black, with gilded shimmering eye colours as a beautiful golden background. Lips wear super-shiny red lacquer—boldly painted on to make a stunning statement. The face is contoured, sculpted, and a true work of art. Nails are painted in rich shades of red and noir.
I’ve attended a lot of events in the past but this one is for the books.
The setup in Prive was so Moulin Rouge!
Themed events is something I love and I have been longing for a 1920’s event for awhile now! Thanks Laura Mercier for hosting such an awesome event. Look how we enjoyed our travel back in time!
The collection looks really nice, in fact I can’t help but swatch the lippies while it was displayed in the dance floor!
I can’t wait to try all the other makeup from the collection!
Clockwise (minus the ostrich feathers): pressed foundation, lipstick, mascara and blender brush
