Laura Mercier x Byrdie Collaboration

As a Makeup Artist, you are always the one doing the makeup but rarely do you ever get your own makeup done by someone else.  I was recently given the most amazing opportunity to collaborate with Laura Mercier and Byrdie to show you how to create an “Effortless Daytime Red Lip Look” however, this time around I was the one in the makeup chair!  I had the pleasure of getting my makeup done by the incredibly talented Makeup Artist, Jenn Streicher, who is known for her editorial features and red carpet looks.  There’s nothing more that I love than getting to see another artist work their magic but when they are working their magic on me, the experience is far more surreal and educational at the same time.  I was amazed as to how quickly Jenn was able to create a red lip look.  Overall it must have taken her no more than ten to fifteen minutes, which is the amount of time it takes me to just to do the red lip, ha!  I remember her stating “as long as you have a good lip brush, a red lip should be easy” as she applied the Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour in the shade Foreplay, a stunning shade of vibrant red.  Enjoy the full video down below and be on the look out for future collaborations this year with Laura Mercier and Byrdie.
