Every morning, I take a shower, I get dressed, I run all over the place and then finally I do my makeup. And everyday, it’s basically the same thing. Tinted moisturizer, eye shadow, mascara, a little lip color, Lychee Parfait for example. It’s kind of like I’m putting my face on, I guess.
But every time I change my makeup, I get compliments, my friends notice, something happens.
So I finally realized: it’s not that my usual makeup isn’t good, it’s just that it’s always the same. And that sometimes, changing makeup makes you discover something new about your face, and it makes people notice. Kind of like changing your clothes, actually. Or changing cars. Or changing boyfriends. Haha, kidding!
Ever since I’ve arrived in LA, for example, I want different things. Something lighter, more fresh, more luminous and sun-filled. A more “daytime” look, with less intensity around the eyes. So last time I went to New York, I decided to ask my team of makeup artists – as a Laura Mercier ambassador, I have privileges you couldn’t even imagine ;) – to help me find some new styles – simple and quick to do.
The first, which is probably my favorite, is my look of the moment. Very subtle and bright, and we add a little to the brow and even a few freckles. It’s a looking-good-after-hiking-and-stopping-at-Cafe-Gratitude (amazing green juice) look that I love.
The second is the famous red lip, which I still like just as much, but I often forget how powerful it is: red lips are beautiful, sexy and super energizing. You just have to remember not to touch your face. And have a friend with you to give you a discreet sign if you’ve got lipstick on your teeth. And stay away from your guy’s white shirt. And…
And finally because honestly I couldn’t help myself, a little smoky eye evening look, but this time I got brave and used color. What do you think?
