Tried and tested: Laura Mercier products

Make-up artist Mario Dedivanovic says, for her MTV Video Music Awards appearance, he wanted to make Kim Kardashian look “like a Greek Goddess, with a dewy complexion and a natural glow”.

Tried and tested: Laura Mercier products

The maestro achieved just that, with a trio of Laura Mercier products: Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation in Maple, €48, followed by Face Illuminator Powder in Addiction, €42, and finished with a slick of Velour Lovers Lip Colour in Sensual, €30, all available at Brown Thomas.


Is a foundation that stays matte all day long your beauty Holy Grail? Well, the search is over.
