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.

INSPIRATION

For the Marchesa Bridal Spring 2013 Runway Show, Talia Shobrook, lead makeup artist for the show, was inspired by the fashionable and fresh Marchesa bride-to-be. The makeup look she created was whimsical and effervescent. By carefully selecting a palette of warm and diffused colours, she was able to develop the natural flush that people love for brides, evoking a woman that is both innocent and sensual.

FACE: According to Shobrook, “flawless skin with a fresh and dewy finish was the foundation of the look.”
· First, Talia mixed Laura Mercier Mega-Moisturizer Crème SPF 15 with Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance to add a subtle glow to the skin.
· She then covered under eye circles with Laura Mercier Secret Concealer and covered any spots or redness with Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage.

· Next, she applied Laura Mercier Silk Crème Foundation to the face.

· Lastly, she used Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Setting Powder in the T-zone, for control shine, leaving the rest of the skin dewy and fresh.

EYES: According to Shobrook, “we chose to highlight the eye, to add to the allure that a bride’s sparkling eyes have on her wedding day.”

· First, Talia mixed Laura Mercier Sateen Eye Colours Stellar and Primrose and applied them on the lid from lashline to the crease.
· Next, she softly contoured the crease with Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Fresco.
· Using Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Ballet Pink, she dipped a Laura Mercier Fine Point Eye Liner Brush into water and swirled around the Eye Colour to pick up the product, then drew a line across the lashline, with a slight flick at the outer corner. The eyeliner should be thin, and bright.
· On the lower lashline, she used a Laura Mercier Flat Eye Liner Brush to apply Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Truffle just at the lashline and blended slightly to soften.
· Lastly, she finished with a layer of Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara and another layer of Laura Mercier Full Blown Volume Lash Building Mascara to the lashes in the center of the eye.

LIPS & CHEEKS: “By using the same product on the eyes and lips, we allow the fresh-faced bride to only have to carry one product for touch-ups. The creamy formula adds a lovely natural flush to the face,” Shobrook concluded.

· On the cheeks, Talia applied Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Mango (NEW, launching September 2012) to the apples of the cheeks and blended to give a natural flush in the face. The result is a creamy smooth natural cheek color.
· The look was finished with the punchy Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Mango (NEW, launching September 2012) blended onto the lips as well.
