FOUNDER, Laura Mercier

Laura was raised in Provence, France, and at age 17 enrolled in painting school in Paris.

With some coaxing from her mother, she decided to shift her talents to a new canvas, leaving her easel for the face. From there she attended the prestigious Carita Beauty Institute. A diligent student with an innate eye for makeup artistry, Laura excelled in her classes and subsequently represented Carita as a makeup artist and teacher. Unable to find the formulas, colours, and textures she wanted, Laura began experimenting and mixing her own formulations to create the products she desired, but could not find. Her signature flawless complexion was born.
