The beauty prescription by Laura Mercier, make-up artist

The beauty prescription by Laura Mercier, make-up artist Laura Mercier, make-up artist and founder of the eponymous brand, shares the list of products she recommends as well as her beauty tips.

The invigorating slimming treatment

I know that anti-cellulite creams don't make you lose weight, but I'm loyal to this formula which tones and improves the surface of the skin.

Expert Slimming Anti-Dimpling Body Fit by Clarins, €54 for 200 ml.

The protective urban spray

I love this mist to apply under or over my make-up. Lightweight, it protects against photoaging and dark spots on a daily basis.

Spray InCellium City Protect from Institut Esthederm, €42 for 100 ml.

Nail polish at a low price

I love this cherry color, neither too red, nor too brown, nor too black. Its texture, easy to apply, lasts a week.

O.P.I Black Cherry Chutney Nail Polish, €14.45.

The reference eye make-up remover in pharmacies

This two-phase formula gently erases all shadows without leaving residue or irritation.

Respectissime Two-Phase Eye Makeup Remover from La Roche-Posay, €13.50 for 125 ml.

The evening make-up remover duo

I follow an invigorating cleansing milk that smells of grapefruit, then a soothing micellar water, and I rinse with water.

Vitality Cleansing Milk Normal to Combination Skin from Sothys, €21 for 200 ml. Crealine H2O from Bioderma, €10.50 for 250 ml.

Multifunctional moisturizing oil

I apply this nourishing dry oil, scented with verbena essence, on the ends of the hair, on the body, after swimming or before going to sleep, and even as a glow on the cheekbones.

Beauty Fluid 14 by Carita, €55.90 for 100 ml.

The special smoky pencil

I generously apply this very oily and long-lasting eye pencil to the base of the lashes, from the inner corner to the outer corner, I rub in with my finger and then I smoke the result with a cotton swab.

Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Eye Pencil, €19.50 at Sephora.

The well-balanced tinted cream

I created it twenty years ago, it has been copied, but it still has, in my opinion, the best balance between texture, hold and tolerance, without being armored with silicones like most .

Tinted Moisturizing Cream SPF20 by Laura Mercier, €45.

The ideal blush

Whatever the brand, the best blushes are creamy – easier to apply – and an apricot-peach shade, with a bit of brown in them. For a healthy skin effect, place it in the middle of the cheekbone, then blend it towards the ear.
