Laura Mercier’s New Innovation High Coverage Concealer

LM high coverage concealer

Laura Mercier has launched a new High Coverage Concealer for Under Eye. Between allergies, kids and work I rarely get enough sleep. And the result is puffy under eyes and some serious dark circles. I was just the girl to do a trail run on this new concealer.

First thing I noticed out of the tube was this is a really thick concealer. You only need a tiny bit to get really great coverage. The concealer is thick but felt so light and blended into my skin really well. I like that it helped decrease the puffiness while it hides the dark spots. This concealer worked so well to  hide the dark spots and really reduced the puffiness.

As you can see from the before and after shot below my eye on the right is much brighter and there is no hint of dark circles or discoloration on my skin. By the time I add my eye makeup my eyes look bright, awake and the coverage lasts all day. A great product for anyone who struggles with dark circles.

Amy Adams 86th Annual Academy Awards
Nominee, Actress in a Leading Role, American Hustle

Makeup by Stephen Sollitto

Celebrity makeup artist Stephen Sollitto created a sophisticated makeup look for Amy Adams, who is nominated for “Actress in a Leading Role” for her portrayal of Sydney Prosser in “American Hustle.” He stated, “She wore a stunning sapphire blue Gucci gown, modern and clean. Obviously, I am inspired by this color and simply wanted the makeup to be just as sophisticated.” Below, he breaks down the steps he took to create her flawless red carpet look.

SKINCARE PREP

Sollitto prepared Adams’ skin using RéVive Moisturizing Renewal Cream ($195). He stated, “I always moisturize with this product. This is the line I use on myself every day. Prepping the skin is just as important as the makeup you use.”

FOUNDATION

  • Sollitto applied Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide (NEW – Coming Fall 2014) to create a flawless complexion. He noted, “This foundation is simple to apply with a wet sponge or your fingers. It’s long wear, oil free and lightweight. In the end it gives you a matte finish so you don’t have to dust your face with loose powder, it’s built in.”

EYES

  • Sollitto applied Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Terracotta ($24) to Adams’ lids and contrasted the look by applying Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Black Karat ($24) under the star’s bottom lashes.
  • To keep Adam’s eyes looking ”bright,” Sollitto dotted his “ideal champagne shade,” Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Sugar Frost ($26) to the inner corners of Adams’ eyes.
  • He applied Nars Eye Paint Liner in Tatar ($25) along the star’s upper lash line to make them “pop.”
  • To finish, he applied Dior Black Out Mascara ($25) to Adams’ lashes.

CHEEKS

  • Sollitto applied the perfect “spring-like blush,” Tom Ford Beauty Cheek Color in Ravish ($56) to create a look “that was flush with color.”

LIPS

  • Sollitto noted that he wanted to achieve a lip look that was “pretty, a little bit rosy and glossy.” He used Laura Mercier Rouge Nouveau Weightless Lip Colour in Cozy ($25) which he described as “having the perfect punch I was looking for.” He then layered Tom Ford Beauty Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Rose Crush ($45) over it “for a bit of glamour to match the day.”
