laura mercier watercolor palette

Every once in awhile a palette comes along that is almost too beautiful to use. And Laura Mercier’s new Watercolour Clouds collection definitely falls into that category. The palette was created with little drops that look like rain. They are placed so perfectly it really does look like raindrops and on the reflective palette its just gorgeous.

I am usually not a fan of pastels the white base comes out to candy colored. But Laura Mercier has taken the white out and created the most gorgeous, wearable color. The shades are highly pigmented which is a feat with light colors.

The shadows go on velvety smooth without creasing. And with my primer they stay true all day. I am having so much fun with this collection. Its a huge departure from anything else I own and I can’t get enough!

Pro tips: Prime your eyelid then sweep Purple Rain from your lash line through the crease using an allover brush. Then, blend Mist from the crease fading outward on the brow bone. Use a smudging brush to add Cloud to the upper lash line, increasing in width blending outward and upward. Lightly blend Cloud over Purple Rain along the bottom lash line. Finish with an eyeliner and mascara.

Get the Look: Reese Witherspoon at the SAG Awards

Reese Witherspoon
21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards
January 25, 2015
Look by Celebrity Makeup Artist Molly R. Stern

Celebrity makeup artist Molly R. Stern created a “sultry” look for Reese Witherspoon, a nominee in the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role category for her performance in “Wild.”

Stern was inspired by the “smoldering beauties of film noir” and balanced “rich Bordeaux” colours on the eyes and lips with “bright and flushed skin.”

FACE: Bright, flushed and photo-ready skin

  • Stern first applied Caudalie Eau De Beaute Beauty Elixer, ($49) to invigorate Witherspoon’s skin. Next, she massaged Natura Bisse The Cure Pure Serum, ($260) to give her skin vibrancy and hydration.
  • Then, Stern applied NEW Laura Mercier Silk Crème Moisturizing Photo Edition Foundation in Cream Ivory, $48 to ensure Witherspoon’s complexion was “sheer, dewy and lustrous.”
  • Using Kjaer Weiss Cream Blush in Lovely, ($56),Stern “heated up” the apples of Witherspoon’s cheeks, giving off a “radiant glow.”


EYES: Matte, earthy look

  • For Witherspoon’s eye look, Stern opted for a “matte earthy wine all over the lids and smoked out underneath the lash line.”
  • She first created a base using Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Blaze, ($25). She then applied Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Truffle, ($24), which she described as rich brown shadow, over the base to give the eye “a depth of color.” Stern topped off the eye look with a brighter shadow – Makeup For Ever Artist Shadow – Matte Finish in Morello Cherry, ($21).
  • Next, she tightly lined Witherspoon’s upper and lower lash line using Laura Mercier Crème Eye Liner in Espresso, ($24).Lastly, Stern curled the actress’ lashes with the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler, ($29), and coated her lashes twice using Laura Mercier Faux Lash Mascara in Black, ($25).


LIPS: Rich, Bordeaux colour

  • To complete the look, Stern used Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Cocoa, ($27) as a base and brightened and enriched the color by applying NEW Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour in Orchid Pink ($28, March 2015). To give an “added punch,” she applied NEW Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour in Vermillion Red, ($28, March 2015) to the center of the lips.
  • Finally, she topped Witherspoon’s lip look withLaura Mercier Lip Glacé in Black Cherry, ($25) to give “depth and sheen.”
