1. Lock in moisture by priming skin using Laura Mercier Hydrating Foundation Primer, then create an even canvas with Laura Mercier Silk Crème Foundation.

2. Defined, sculpted brows are key to this look. First, fill-in brows with Laura Mercier Brow Definer and then brush them over with Laura Mercier Brow Powder Duo.

3. To ensure eye shadow stays put throughout the evening, it’s crucial to prep the lid using a primer. Try Laura Mercier’s NEW Eye Canvas.

4. Then, create a dramatic eye by applying a matte white shadow from brow to lid. After that, cover the lid using a matte brown shadow.

5. Use Laura Mercier’s Tightline Cake Eye Liner in Black Ebony to line the tightline of the top lid to create a modern take on the classic Audrey Hepburn doll eye. Rim the lower lash line with a dark brown pencil and smudge it out to the tear duct.

6. Create a natural flush of color by applying Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Colour in Oleander to the cheeks.

7. Finish the look with a Laura Mercier Lip Stain layered with Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Bare Beam.

Hair Structure

Hair is composed of strong structural protein called keratin. This is the same kind of protein that makes up the nails and the outer layer of skin. Each strand of hair consists of three layers.

01. An innermost layer or medulla which is only present in large thick hairs.

02. The middle layer known as the cortex. The cortex provides strength and both the color and the texture of hair.

03. The outermost layer is known as the cuticle. The cuticle is thin and colorless and serves as a protector of the cortex.

Is your hair dead or alive?

Many people believe they can do anything to their hair because its dead anyway. Is this true?  

Well yes and no.

The hair outside of your scalp is psychologically dead; it has no blood, nerves or muscles. When you cut it there is no pain, and it does not bleed.

However, for a dead fiber, it is quite remarkable. Healthy hair can be stretched up to 30% of its length, can absorb it own weight in water and can increase its diameter by 20%. We can change its color, its shape, curl it, wash it, brush it, set it, pull it and rub it to an amazing degree.
