Summer is not quite here, but looking it wouldn't hurt...
Maybe we have been spoiled by the first Spring rays of sunlight. Spring colors and trends only usher in thoughts of fun in the summer sun. It is sort of funny that fashion never quite stays in one place. By the time we were bundled up in scarves and parkas, the NYFW was sending models down the runway in eye popping Spring/Summer '14. It is very exciting to try the trends and see it first. This amazing Summer collection from the luxury cosmetics line Laura Mercier is appropriately called "New Attitude." And it is a vibe that I'm buying. Each product speaks a story of a trip to paradise that no one should miss.
Why wear regular eyeshadow when it can be baked?
One of the nicest things about high tech is that everything gets better and better. Baking shadows makes the product versatile with wet or dry application. Laura Mercier, the makeup artist to the stars, hand selected the shades for the Baked Eye Color Quad palettes. The shades are reminiscent of nights in the tropics and are named after two of the most sought after vacay spots, Summer in St. Tropez and Rendezvous in Monte Carlo. Names like these ensure a party is nearby somewhere...
Sweets are on the lips with Gel Color
When I read that Laura Mercier infused vanilla flavor into their Gel Lip Color, I was tempted. Sweets are a passion and necessity for life. So why not have beautifully softened lips, too. This product delivers the most with a gel based formula that hydrates winter air-dried puckers.
Line Those Eyes Jungle Queen...
There is nothing worse than liner that slides around. Life is too complicated for that. Laura Mercier's Longwear Creme Eye Pencil takes care of this issue with a smooth and creamy formula that happens to be waterproof. So swim on without worries (or stay by the pool and splash your face like I do). A very hot summer shade would be Violet, a deep true purple. And if staying pool ready means blue hues, try out the Cobalt color, perfect for an oceanic pop of color.
Don't Forget the Digits
Ten fingers aren't just for sending texts or checking on Facebook. Nail polish is the finishing touch for any Summer worthy outfit. Polish should last long enough to make it worth the buck. Laura Mercier has a nail lacquer that is chip resistant and good for your environment without formaldehyde, toluene, or DBP. Being very eco conscious, this makes perfect sense. On trend colors like the limited edition violet- tinged metallic Reckless make a "polished" yet fun statement.
