Laura Mercier was the official makeup sponsor of the Jenny Packham Spring/Summer 2014 Runway Show. This partnership represents the ultimate collaboration of chic, European sensibility and flawless red carpet glamour. The look was created by makeup artist Talia Shobrook.
Inspired by the exquisite styling of the 1975 cult classic film, “Picnic at Hanging Rock,” Packham’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection represents a “seventies take on austere Edwardian attire.” The makeup look for the show, created by Talia Shobrook for Laura Mercier, further highlights the contrast between the eras, combining a “flush of innocence with a hint of naughtiness.”
Face: Flawless skin with a youthful glow
Talia prepped the skin with Laura Mercier Foundation Primer, $32.
Next, she applied Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Sunrise, $24 to the model’s cheekbones.
Then, she applied Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer – Oil Free Broad Spectrum SPF Sunscreen, $43 all over the face.
She concealed minor skin imperfections using Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage, $32.
Adding the final touch to the skin, Talia applied Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Radiance, $32 to the T-Zone. This gave the skin a beautiful, illuminated and youthful glow.
Lips: Feminine, rosy lips
Talia dabbed the lips with Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Spiced Rose, $26 and Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Pink Blush, $26.
Eyes: Subtle lashes allowed the eyes to sparkle
Talia used a silver eye glitter that was specially made for this show to accentuate the eyes. For a similar look, apply a thick layer of Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Sterling, $26.
Next she filled in the eyebrows using Laura Mercier Eye Brow Pencil, $22.
To complete the look, Talia applied one swipe of Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Lash Building Mascara, $24 – keeping the lashes very subtle.
