Introducing the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund.

Laura Mercier gives back with the launch of the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund. Its mission is to raise awareness and fund research and educational efforts that will help diagnose, treat and support women with ovarian cancer. Beginning in September 2012, in recognition of Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, 100% of the profits from the sale of two products – Bonne Mine Healthy Glow for Face & Cheeks Crème Colour Palette and Rose Hope Lip Glacé – will be donated to the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund.

BONNE MINE HEALTHY GLOW FOR FACE & CHEEKS CRÉME COLOUR PALETTE

This ultra-sheer, blendable and portable palette was inspired by Laura Mercier’s work with celebrity clients, who wanted a universal compact that would “wake-up” their skin and give them an immediate healthy glow. Skin is left with a natural “no makeup” glow that looks soft and sun-kissed.

The Bonne Mine Palette includes:
1 Bronzer Veil
2 Cheek Veils
2 Glow Veils

Application Instructions:
Step 1:
Start with a warm sun-kissed face. The sheer creamy formula gives skin a natural bronzed look.
Laura’s secret – use your fingertips to apply Bronzer Veil over areas where the sun naturally hits, like cheeks, nose, browbone, forehead and chin.
Step 2:
Add a touch of colour to cheeks. The creamy, sheer, buildable shades add a natural pop of colour over the Bronzer Veil.
Laura’s secret – use your fingertips to blend Cheek Veil over the apples of your cheeks. You can apply either shade alone, or blend both shades together for a custom colour.
Step 3:
Finish with a healthy glow. In this final step, the creamy, luminous highlighters give skin a natural radiance.
Laura’s secret – use your fingertips to blend Glow Veil over the high points of your face…the cheekbones, center of nose, browbone, cupid’s bow and top of forehead.
