Known for her specialty of creating the flawless face, Laura
Mercier is a world-renowned makeup artist and creator of Laura Mercier
Cosmetics, Skincare, Body & Bath, and Fragrance. As the personal
makeup artist to celebrities such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Julia
Roberts, and Juliette Binoche, and as a contributor to cover designs
and editorial shoots, Laura Mercier creates looks that are both
flawless and accentuate one’s natural beauty. Raised in Provence,
Laura began her training at age 17 when she entered painting school in
Paris. After deciding to shift her talents from the canvas to the
face, Laura attended the Carita School where she specialized in makeup
application. Subsequently she represented Carita as a makeup artist
and makeup teacher, working closely with Thibault Vabre.
In 1985, Laura moved to New York when she was asked to join
the team to launch American Elle. She immediately began working on
advertising campaigns for Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdale’s, Clairol,
as well as editorial spreads for magazines including Elle, Vanity
Fair, Glamour, Seventeen, and several other publications. She began
working with clients such as L’Oreal, Maybelline, Victoria’s Secret,
Gap, Banana Republic, and many other cosmetic and clothing companies,
while working with Madonna on her looks for print, television and
film. Subsequently Laura entered into a four-year contract with
Elizabeth Arden, designing the makeup looks for all of their
advertising campaigns, and also worked with Chanel on the company’s
beauty advertising campaigns in France. In 1996, Laura developed
Laura Mercier Cosmetics to benefit women of all ages and skin types.
She personally created the colors to satisfy the needs of her clients,
based on a classic and always-current palette, rather than seasonal
trends only. The line, now in its thirteenth year, is now available
in almost 853 stores in 26 countries at stores including Neiman
Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Sephora and many
