Fall Date Night

Soho, NY

A lace LBD is perfect for fall date nights.  I’m currently loving this one, this one, and this one.  I like to keep my makeup as natural as possible – even at night – which is why I love Laura Mercier products.  Her new Flawless Fluide foundation is my favorite because it’s so easy to apply (simply shake and rub in with your fingertips) and creates smooth, flawless skin.  For this date night look, I applied the foundation primer, then foundation, swiped the caviar sticks over my eyes, and finished with mascara and light pink lipgloss. Shop more of my go-to Laura Mercier products (like this brush) below!

    This outfit will turn heads! The clutch is gorgeous and says sophistication against the dress. This is an example of how the right accessory takes it up a notch.

    Flawless! I would never have guessed that dress was DVF. Love that you paired this with that gorgeous leopard clutch. It definitely stole the show. I have a black one, but after seeing this leopard one, I might have to add it to my wish list.

    I’m a big makeup person and I love Laura Mercier. Her liquid foundation is one of my favorites. Love seeing what you are currently using!
