Laura Mercier’s inspiration for Fall 2012 draws from her background as a fine art painter and focuses on the mood and attitude of women through different art periods. She was inspired by the Hollywood stars of the late 1940’s; the era when black & white film transitioned into colour. Read on for more…

The soft, sultry, moody palette inspires a cinematic vintage charm, strong romanticism and ultra-feminine appeal. The overall look is one where eyes wear muted shades in smoky mixes of teals & chocolates for a sultry look. Lashes are long and voluminous, defining the eye. Lips have a creamy soft finish in shades of roses & mauves. Cheeks are luminous and glowing. Nails are painted in soft shades of nude and cocoa. It’s a sensual and subtle mood.
