Obsession: Fall 2012 Trend Marchesa + Laura Mercier

A dose of obsession ala Poppy.

This is definitely a must-read. It's like hitting two birds with one stone. Beauty and Fashion in one post, what more can you ask for?

Back with another series of Trend to watch out for Fall 2012.

First up, Marchesa.
Let's take a quick look of Marchesa's Fall 2011 collection.

So, i waited for the live stream of photos on the internet to see if Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig will leave me breathless this year. And so, the dynamic stunners- DID IT AGAIN. If last year's Fall collection was chic dark, this year it was the opposite and was like a continuation of the Spring 2012 design story. 

Here are some photos which were taken from (i just collated). Do visit to see the full Fall 2012 collection of Marchesa (click here) or visit

My top pick. Finale dress too!

Golden arresting designs

BEautiful intricate details

Okay. So in line with the collection-- i have set my mind to use an "Ethereal" peg for my Fall fancy engagements inspired by Marchesa's Fall 2012 show. Very simple and in three words, i am aiming for "I. LOOK. DIVINE." :)

and the biggest surprise of my life (to date) came with Marchesa's Fall 2012 collection. Apparently, it is possible to utter the words I. LOOK. DIVINE. come fall because Laura Mercier did the makeup of the models for the show. Woohooooooo! And now, my big surprise will be yours as well. Hurry and look down below.

A FACE CHART and another surprise!
INSPIRATIONMarchesa’s Fall 2012 collection found inspiration in William Adolphe Bouguereaus’ famed 1878 portrait, “A Soul Brought to Heaven.” The classically angelic figures in the painting were brought to life in the collection through frothy tulles, embroidered brocades and pleated silks.    
Talia Shobrook, the lead makeup artist for the show, drew from the otherworldly etherealness of the collection to create a makeup look that was “my vision of an angel, brought to life through a luminous palette.”
FACEShobrook stated “iridescent, porcelain skin was the foundation of the look and evoked the untouched perfection of angels.”
·       Talia first moisturized the skin with Laura Mercier Mega-Moisturizer Crème·       She then applied a mixture of Laura Mercier Hydrating Foundation Primer and Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance to the entire face to give it an iridescent base
·       Next, she used Laura Mercier Silk Crème Foundation to lend the skin a porcelain, marbleized look
·       Lastly, she highlighted the face with the mixture of Laura Mercier Hydrating Foundation Primer and Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance to give it luminosity
LIPSTalia then “applied a cherubic lip, with a stained effect to modernize the look.”·       Talia mixed Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Merlot and Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Haute Red (NEW: Available Fall 2012) and applied to the center of the mouth
·       She then pressed in the color with her fingertips to allow the pigment to bleed outwards
EYESAccording to Shobrook, “the ethereal eye lent an incandescent glow to the entire look.”
·       Talia first applied Laura Mercier NEW Eye Canvas to the lid to set a base
·       Next, she applied the Laura Mercier Illuminating Eye Colour in Gilded Moonshine (NEW: Available Fall 2012) as a liner around the entire edge of the eye
·       Laura Mercier Center Faux Lashes were used to give the eye a rounded shape
·       Talia finished by applying several coats of Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Lash Building Mascara

A face chart guide and a written tutorial straight from the expert Talia Shobrook.
How wonderful is this? Seriously. I am sooo looking forward of doing this over the weekend for maybe a tutorial video? I am not sure but EXCIIIITED for the weekend (trying not to think of Revalida pressure).

So that's my NYFW Fall 2012 Trend report (aware that I am two fashion weeks behind). Ill be back with some more. 

Usually, first and last mentions are the special ones right? Feel free to mark out my first top pick for F/W 2012 beauty and fashion trend. Definitely, a collection to look forward to from Marchesa and beauty trend to get us all giddy and excited for Fall from Laura Mercier.
