I always like to step up my beauty routine a bit more around the holidays. I’ll add a little brightening powder under my eyes to really make them pop – or I’ll dab extra tinted moisturizer on my cheekbones to give me a gorgeous glow. Laura Mercier’s Secret Brightening Powder is an absolute must have for setting under-eye concealer. To apply it – simply dab this brush in the powder and lightly dust it over your under-eye concealer. If I’m going to a fancier cocktail party or event I’ll use Laura Mercier’s new Velour Lovers Lip Colour in Infatuation and top it off with a swipe of my favorite Lip Glace in Bare Baby. I finally figured out how to use setting powder which has been a game changer! I tend to get shiny in between my brows so I’ve been looking for something to get rid of the shine and give me an overall smooth finish. Laura Mercier’s Translucent Loose Setting Powder is an oil free French cashmere powder which absorbs excess oil and sets your makeups for the entire day. If you’re running from work to an event and don’t have time to redo your makeup it’s a lifesaver. The best way to apply it is to use the Velour Puff and dab it into the powder, tap off the excess powder on your hand, and then gently press the puff onto your skin using a rolling motion (I start with my T-zone, then do my cheekbones and under-eye area.)
