Laura Mercier Taps Suki Waterhouse as Its First Muse

by Sydney Sadick

British actress and model Suki Waterhouse has signed on to be the face of Laura Mercier, Harper’s Bazaar reports. Waterhouse will front the brand’s fall 2017 and spring 2018 campaigns as part of the makeup company’s inaugural Mercier Muse, a program aimed at celebrity individuality. Three new products will coincide with the Mercier Muse partnership, including the Caviar Stick Eye Colour Matte (launching in July), Flawless Fusion Ultra Longwear Foundation (launching in September), and Velour Extreme Matte Lipstick (launching in January). “Our brand has been embraced by a younger audience and we want to tell young women that we are speaking to them,” Mercier told the glossy. “There is so much happening in artistry today–from technique to using quality products–and we felt that it was essential to be represented by a young, talented, confident woman.”

Waterhouse talked all-things beauty with Harper’s Bazaar. Find a few highlights, below:

On the beauty products she always carriers with her…
“I like to carry a really small bag, so my favorite thing to have [in there are a handful of] Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour. They are a dream, with electric colors with silky smoothness on the skin. I just throw them on and smudge a bit. They can create any look, subtle or bold. The best part is once they are on they don’t budge!”

On how her British upbringing has influenced her beauty routine…
“I think being British gave me a very low-key approach to putting makeup on. Culturally the first thing that inspired me growing up in London was the Camden market heavy smokey eye look, which I wanted to emulate, so I started taking long romantic trips down the makeup aisle and experimenting with black eyeliner. When I first working in fashion and began to have my makeup done professionally on shoots, I fell in love with the ’60s cat eye look which definitely draws on British heritage too. When in doubt, just wing it. Life, eyeliner, everything.

On her favorite and least favorite red carpet beauty looks…
“My favorite red carpet look was the first time I went to the Met Gala in 2014. To be honest any red carpet where I don’t get nervous and pull a bizarre face is a win for me!”

 On how it feels to work with Laura Mercier…
“I have so many memories of the brand from a very young age. I used to watch my mum use Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage, it was her favorite product! It was the first makeup brand I knew as a little girl. I remember sneaking into her room and rifling through her makeup drawer to use it, so the brand naturally feels close to home.”
