Today on Makeup Wars we are sharing our favourite undereye products. My Secret to Crease Free and Bright Undereyes is Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder. This product is an absolute essential in both my personal makeup routine as well as in my professional kit.

Summer Makeup Look

Summer Wedding Makeup Look

This week the Makeup Wars team is sharing our favourite Summer Wedding Makeup Look. This look will look equally beautiful on a wedding guest as it would the bride. Most of the summer weddings I attend are outdoor affairs. You want to look fresh, polished, and pretty all while surviving the heat and humidity. Plus you want to look as good on that dance floor late into the night as you do many, many hours earlier during the ceremony. My go to summer wedding look usually revolves around accentuating my blue eyes with warm browns

Plum Smoky Eye Tutorial with Laura Mercier and Lise Watier

Here is a look using the Laura Mercier Artist's Palette for Eyes for Holiday 2013. This was limited edition and sold out online but may still be available in stores. Luckily all the shades are part of the permanent lineup so you can easily recreate this look even without the Artist Palette with Laura Mercier single eyeshadows! Apply eyeshadow primer or base, I used Lancôme Aquatique Waterproof Eyeshadow Base in Nude, then apply Vanilla Nuts from crease to brow. Apply African Violet heavily on the entire lid and on the

Laura Mercier Artist’s Palette for Eyes Holiday 2013 – Photos, Swatches, and Review

I always regretted not experiencing last year's version so I was understandably giddy at the opportunity to try the Laura Mercier Artist's Palette for Eyes ($60 CAD) for Holiday 2013. The packaging is sleek and there is no wasted space. That is so important to me. The exterior of the compact is a cushiony faux pebbled leather. There is a flap on the cover that folds down over the side of the compact with a magnetic closure. The magnetic closure is not that strong though so I would be careful when you pack or carry it. The

Laura Mercier Mini Kohl Eye Pencil Collection ~ Photos, Swatches, Review

[caption id="attachment_5283" align="aligncenter" width="500"] Laura Mercier Mini Kohl Eye Pencil Collection[/caption] I had seen info about the Laura Mercier Mini Kohl Eye Pencil set on some other blogs. When I was at Sephora the other weekend I knew I had to snatch it up. I am not an eyeliner person. I tend to just line my lashline with eyeshadow and use black liner to tightline my upper lashline. I have been thinking for a while that it would be fun to have some more proper eyeliners in my collection to play with and given the

My Love Affair with Le Metier de Beaute Splendid Frost Continues – Face of the Day

I know I have already featured a Face of the Day post using Le Metier de Beaute's glorious Splendid Frost Kaleidoscope here but it is such an incredibly gorgeous palette and I realized I had yet to use it with the proper Couches de Couleur technique layering the top three shades on my lid into my crease and then intensifying near the lash line by adding the fourth shade. I had always kept the shades somewhat separated in the past. Well Holy $#!% does this look fabulous! I hope you can see and appreciate the complexity of the shade

Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour in Clementine – Swatches and Review

I was so happy with the Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour in Hibiscus Bloom that I promptly ordered two more shades; Clementine and Sweet Cherry. Clementine is as shocking to behold in the tube as Hibiscus Bloom was, but this time it is a vibrant orange as opposed to the hot pink of Hibiscus Bloom. Not to fear though because the highly pigmented, yet sheer formula is delightful on the lips. At first I was concerned that Clementine would be too similar to Dior Addict in Fire but it turns out they are drastically different both on the

Laura Mercier Gel Lip Colour in Hibisus Bloom – Swatches and Review

I am so madly in love with this new lipstick formula from Laura Mercier! This is what I dreamed the Chanel Rouge Coco Shines would be. It is sheer and incredibly lightweight. It doesn't have that really creamy, too much slip feeling I get from the Chanel Rouge Coco Shines (which I'm sure is what some people love about them but I don't like that feeling myself). It feels so moisturizing and light and packs a whop of a colour punch! It also leaves a really nice even stain behind when it wears off and it lasts pretty well considering
