The goal of entrepreneur Laura Mercier is to help women achieve their full beauty potential. A look at her career also explains why.

Laura Mercier was raised in France in 1960 under the name Michèle Mercier. Even in high school, she was passionate about good looks and the individual beauty of each face. When she attended a painting school in Paris, she was just 16 years old. This was followed by a beauty studio and work as a makeup artist. However, there was already a well-known actress named Michèle Mercier in her line of work, so after moving to New York (1985) she changed her first name to "Laura".

Due to her high craftsmanship and exquisite materials, she quickly became one of the most sought-after makeup artists, working for the most famous fashion and beauty magazines. She also crafted phenomenal looks for A-list actresses and singers like Mariah Carey, Madonna, and Julia Roberts.

Then in 1996, the starting signal was given for the label "Laura Mercier". The company is based on two concepts: the luxurious quality of the products and the professional application conveyed by Mercier. Although the label is managed by Gary Kusin and Janet Gurwitch, Laura Mercier, the name and idea giver, regularly creates new skin and body products. In addition to creams, lotions, and powders, these are also pads, lipsticks, eyeliners, foundations, etc., as well as plenty of other accessories.
