It’s often assumed that I am inured to the thrill of make-up given the amount I come into contact with. Nothing could be further from the truth – the day my pulse doesn’t quicken when I find something worth coming here to tell you about is the end of my writing about beauty.
Palpitations flurried forth on cracking open these bits from Laura Mercier’s Christmas collection – they’re comprehensive, enormously good quality, are well curated and will be reached for long after the final mince pie is polished off this Christmas. Here are the three pieces I’d recommend snapping up //
Laura Mercier Daring by Day Eye & Cheek Palette / Not a bold palette, but an eminently useful one for flattering and enhancing features. I’m going to get one of these for my mum, who’ll (I hope) delight in the hazy definition these will lend her eyes and cheeks.
Laura Mercier Master Class Colour Essentials Collection / This would be seriously appreciated by both a budding and fully fledged make-up fan who is all about the eyes. If you’re a frequent traveller, get this for yourself – add a foundation, mascara and something for your lips and you’ll be good to go anywhere.
Laura Mercier Stroke of Genius Luxe Brush Collection / LM brushes are of the hardy variety and when looked after should see you through years of daily use. These six come in a handy travel wallet and are able to do any eye make-up, apply blusher and pop concealer precisely where needed.
