Laura Mercier's Belle Nouveau Spring Collection with Jeffrey Tasker

Laura Mercier's 2012 Spring collection is inspired by her first love, painting and her passion for Art Nouveau. Her latest collection doesn't stray too far from colors of the season and yet she gives it her personal touch. The soft flow of shades, the pastels and subtle bright hues that will make serious makeup lovers like me rush to the counters.

Passion and romance emanates from this collection. But more than that, there is a lot of function in this latest collection.

We were treated to lunch at a private section of White Space. The long table sitted women from different publications and were served refreshing drinks and sumptuous Italian dishes. It felt as if I was in Wonderland, with Jeffrey Tasker, one of Laura's lead makeup artist, as the fun and entertaining Mad Hatter. It was a joy to be a part of this event and but best of all, it was a dream to play with the latest Belle Nouveau collection.

Say goodbye to the old formula of foundation and say hello to Oil Free Supreme Foundation. This baby doesn't budge and discriminate. From those with dry skin to to oily ones will love this new innovation. It's oil-free and non-drying because of Vitamin E and A that we all know are very good for the skin. It has Panthenol to keep the skin's moisture balance and Silica which absorbs excess oil.

Eye Canvas is one of my favorite. Laura calls this foundation for the eyes as it preps it for everything. It preps the lids for makeup and it prevents shadows from creasing. Opt to use this to just even out the skin on your lids or use this as base.

Eye Basics is a eye makeup base that covers eye discoloration. It's crease-free which makes this also a good eye primer.
