Laura Mercier Dark Spell Collection, this fall Mercier is tapping into our dark side and giving us some beautiful A/W shades. The collection on a whole is beautiful and I was lucky enough to be given two baked eyeshadows to review Mystical & Magical.

Magical* is a zebra patterned baked e/s, I've used this to give a dry wash of colour over Mystical, giving it more of a greyer tone on the lid while keeping the outer area darker and blended.

Mystical* is a charcoal black that has iridescent flecks running through it, looks amazing when the light catches it. I've never been one for baked e/s much but I've been converted with these. I like to use this one wet it doesn't give a harsh black eye look and being so easy to blend once it begins to dry.

Some of you may of already seen these images, I posted them on my instagram over a week ago and Annie asked if I had done a video, so I decided to recreate the look - editing, well took me a week to do, it's just such a long process but it's finished :)

  3. Such a babe, honestly. How awesome are you at doing eye makeup? You're going to need to give me tips as I'm terrible with it. I can't seem to get that lovely shape with mine, it's like my eyes are too deep set or something! xo

    1. Haha, well I'm trained in the field of make-up (yeah I know when you saw me, you wouldn't of thought so lmao) practice makes purrrfect. Yeah see deep set eyes you need to do it more on the outer corner and into the socket, with a lighter lid. Going to have to get my hands on you when I get my bum to Oxford xo

  6. I don't usually care for baked eyeshadows but this look is very pretty! I like the colour of cheeks and lips paired with the black smoky eye.
