Laura's 4 steps to a flawless face


"Before applying any colour, I always prepare the skin first. I create a fresh canvas with a flawless finish. Making your skin look perfect is the first and most important thing you can do to achieve a truly great look. The key is to enhance your natural beauty – whether you use all products together one day, or just a little Secret Camouflage and Setting Powder when you are on the go." – Laura Mercier

Laura Mercier Primer

Step 1: Primer

What is a Primer?
Foundation Primer is a colorless gel that provides a barrier between the skin and foundation to ensure freshness and long-lasting color. Laura personally developed the first primer formula in the industry in 1996. Apply after skincare and prior to foundation application for a perfectly even surface. Available in four gel formulas and one lightweight mineral powder formula.

Laura Mercier Foundation

Step 2: Foundation

Laura feels that women should look as natural as possible, so she created her foundation to be used only where needed or in layers to provide buildable coverage. Select from a variety of textures, coverages and styles.

Step 4: Powders

Laura recommends that everyone set their makeup with Translucent Loose Setting Powder because it has no color pigment and won’t interfere with your foundation.
