Flawless Contouring Palette By Laura Mercier Is A Thumbs With Me!


Being a makeup and hairdresser, I like to always learn as much as I can in both crafts. I am now moving forward with the art of contouring in my face sculpting. And I have to tell you the new Palette I purchased from Sephora by Laura Mercier is just wonderful. The cream palette is more than enough for me too use for at least 6 months, and for the consumer it will probably last you for about 1-2 years.  This product all comes in creams so don’t be heavy handed when using them. Once you see how the products expands you really don’t need a lot.  There are a lot of different shades for shadow’s and highlights. The palette cost me $60.00 and I feel it is a lovely kit to start to use for learning and using on photo-shoots.


Contouring is a professional technique commonly used on editorial photo shoots as it works with lighting and shadows to recreate an illusion. Through her artisan lens and years of working as a professional makeup artist, Laura has carefully chosen these neutral shades in a darker range that help sculpt the face. The extraordinary cream formula is more blend-able than typical contouring powders, allowing for a natural, flawless, fool-proof application every time.

Always start with a clean palette, wash and tone and then moisturize where needed.

You get a HUGE amount of product. If you contour your face daily, this will probably last you over a year maybe two.  This would be an amazing addition to a Mua kit, or someone who spends more time on their make up and uses it daily.  I do highly recommend this palette for anyone that will use it daily, and for all Mua’s. It really is not for someone that wants a super fast routine and quick fast make up routine in the morning, or anyone trying to downsize the number of products they use.  Now this is a cream so make sure you really look at the client’s facial condition, look out for large pores.  And always make sure you lock in your work, I recommend the Makeup Forever Translucent Powder.  Love it!

Apply the shadows and highlight were you want them.
