“When I met Laura Mercier it was the first time that I met someone who shared a similar philosophy about make-application and cosmetics. We wanted to created natural, indiscrete looks with touchable skin. If I had my own line of make-up, it would be very similar to Laura Mercier’s.”
– Patricia Margro
Laura Mercier is one of the most renowned makeup artists and cosmetic, skincare, and fragrance creator worldwide.
At the young age of 17, Mercier trained to be a painter at a school in Paris. She then shifted her talents to make-up application and attended Carita School, where she was both an artist and teacher alongside Thibault Vabre.
Mercier believes in flawless looks that highlight one’s natural beauty. This ideal quickly caught attention, and in 1985, Mercier moved to New York to help launch American Elle.
