Jenny Packham: 2016 Bridal Collection
Look created by Talia Sparrow for Laura Mercier
The Jenny Packham 2016 Bridal Collection was inspired by William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Talia Sparrow, lead makeup artist for the show, created a fresh and youthful bridal look that complemented the “romantic purity” of the collection – bringing out the each model’s inner glow.
Flawless Face: Youthful and Glowing
Sparrow first prepped the skin with Laura Mercier Infusion de Rose Nourishing Crème, ($68)
Next, she lightly applied Laura Mercier Silk Crème Moisturizing Photo Edition Foundation, ($48) on areas where needed.
To even the tone in the under eye area and cover any imperfections, she used Laura Mercier High Coverage Concealer, ($29) and Laura Mercier Secret Brightener #1, ($30).
She created a “dewey” look on the models’ “t-zone” and cheeks, using Laura Mercier Infusion de Rose Nourishing Oil, ($62) (application tip: apply with a sponge; the oil can also be applied over makeup to add more radiance to the skin).
Eyes: Natural and Sculpted
Sparrow applied a mix of Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Truffle and Café au Lait, ($24) under the bottom lash line, close to the water line.
She primed the eye area with Laura Mercier Eye Basics, ($26) and used Laura Mercier Secret Brightener #1, ($30) as a highlighter to create shiny, luminous lids.
Starting with the inner corner of the eye, she sculpted the eyes with Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Petal Pink, ($24) and then lightly applied Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Ballet Pink, ($24) to the outer corners.
To create a bold, upper lash line, Sparrow applied Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye liner in Black Ebony, ($24) on top of the lashes.
Next, she curled the lashes by applying Laura Mercier’s NEW Extra Lash Sculpting Mascara in Black Onyx, ($25) on the upper and lower lashes (if needed, apply individual lashes).
To create “natural” eyebrows, she lightly filled in any gaps using Laura Mercier Eye Brow Pencil, ($22).
Cheeks: Flushed and Feminine
Sparrow applied Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Oleander, ($25) to create a natural base, on the cheeks.
Next, using a sponge, she applied a mix of Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Stick Face Colour in Pink Glow and Coral Glow, ($32) to the apple of the cheeks.
Lips: Soft and Muted
To tie the look together, Sparrow applied a layer of Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Spiced Rose, ($27) to the lips.
Adding the final touch, she applied Laura Mercier Paint Wash Liquid Lip Colour in Coral Reef ($28)
