Beauty & The Bride: Jenny Packham

I’m obsessing over the hair and makeup pics from bridal fashion week that just took place in NYC!  I avoided it like the plague, because I love my dress and didn’t want to watch Marchesa gowns glide down the runway.  Obvi.  However, I am working on finding inspiration for my makeup look.  This one from Jenny Packham is perfect – flawless, dewey skin with a flush.  It’s really the no-makeup-makeup look.  Lead Makeup Artist for Laura Mercier, Talia Shobrook, gave me the step-by-step, which every woman should be able to conquer.  Bride-to-be or not.

Flawless Face: Flawless skin with a natural flush of colour

·         Shobrook first prepped skin with Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Hydrating ($32).  

·         Next, she applied Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer – Oil Free Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen ($43) to create a healthy, even tone.  She then covered any imperfections with Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage ($32).

·         To give the skin a romantic, dreamy look, Shobrook flushed the cheeks with Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Barely Pink ($24) and Rose Petal ($24).

·         Then, she dusted Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Peach Whisper ($24) onto the apples of the cheeks. She dabbed Laura Mercier Secret Finish ($27) onto the cheekbones, adding freshness to the skin.

·         To add the final touch, Shobrook applied Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Setting Powder ($35) to the nose and forehead.

Simple Eyes: Soft washes of colour

·         Shobrook applied a wash of colour to the eyelids using Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Ginger ($23) and Laura Mercier Sateen Eye Colour in Guava ($23). Next, she applied a layer of Laura Mercier Sateen Eye Colour ($23) in Primrose.

·         She then highlighted the brow bones with Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Morning Dew ($23).

·         She used Laura Mercier Sateen Eye Colour  in Baroque and Cognac ($23 each) on the inner creases of the eyes to give a rounded look.

·         To finish the lids, Shobrook applied  Laura Mercier Sateen Eye Colour  in Baroque and Burnished ($23 each) to the lower lash lines. She then added Laura Mercier Sateen Eye Colour in Cognac to the middle of the lower lash lines.

·         She applied Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Seashell ($26) to the inner corners of the eyes and added a coat of Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Lash Building Mascara ($24) to the top and bottom lashes.

·         To pull the look together and frame the face, she lightly defined the eyebrows using Laura Mercier Eye Brow Pencil ($22).

Soft Lips:  Mauve and beige lip

·         To create a subtle, elegant look, Shobrook applied Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Pink Blush and Peche (each $26) to the lips.

Body: Illuminated skin

·         To complete the look, Talia dusted Laura Mercier Mineral Illuminating Power in Candelight ($34) to the neck and décolletage.
