Last September 5, 2012, Laura Mercier launched their Holiday 2012 Collection, Art Deco Muse at Privé Luxury Club. The theme was exciting- 1920’s glam! Just look at Raya Mananquil, our host that night. She was indeed glam! 😀
Jeffrey Tasker, Laura Mercier’s International Makeup Artist, was present that night to share the upcoming Holiday 2012 Collection.
Here’s more about Laura Mercier Holiday 2012 Collection: Art Deco Muse
Laura’s inspiration for 2012 draws from her background as a fine art painter and focuses on the mood and attitude of women through different art periods. For the holiday season, Laura was inspired by the decorative architecture, style and mood of the Art Deco period in Paris in the mid-1920’s, most notably the beautiful paintings of the artist Tamara de Lempicka. The beginning of ‘great modernism’ brought about a very distinct and designed decorative movement. Laura created rich makeup shades of gold, red and black to beautifully contrast each other and add sharp definition that is geometrical, powerful and beautifully ornamental.
Golds and bronzes are paired with high-shine reds and deep blacks to make this eye-catching colour collection stand out. Eyes are sharply designed and defined —lined in black, with gilded shimmering eye colours as a beautiful golden background. Lips wear super-shiny red lacquer—boldly painted on to make a stunning statement. The face is contoured, sculpted, and a true work of art. Nails are painted in rich shades of red and noir.
