September is officially Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and also the launch of the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund. And it is always a no-brainer – support a brand and cause that is important by buying new makeup! All September, Laura Mercier will donate 100 percent of the profits from the sale of two products – Bonne Mine Healthy Glow for Face & Cheeks Crème Colour Palette and Rose Hope Lip Glacé – to the Fund.
Join me in supporting Laura Mercier. The lip glace is a rosy, shiny gloss that I love alone but would also worked layered for depth of color. I am already smitten with the palette – super portable bronzers and blush that blend beautifully. These are a go-to for me for creating a natural, sunkissed, look. Use your fingertips to apply Bronzer Veil over areas where the sun naturally hits, like cheeks, nose, browbone, forehead and chin. Use your fingertips to blend Cheek Veil over the apples of your cheeks. You can apply either shade alone, or blend both shades together for a custom color. Use your fingertips to blend Glow Veil over the high points of your face – cheekbones, center of nose, browbone, cupid’s bow and top of forehead.
Both Laura and her President and CEO, Claudia Poccia, have been personally touched by the disease – Laura through a dear friend, and Claudia through her sister. Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death among gynecological cancers in the United States, and the fifth leading cause of cancer death among American women. The mission of the fund is to raise awareness and fund research and educational efforts that will help diagnose, treat and support women with ovarian cancer.
Any such initiative has my full support. The least we can do is to support the organizations whose members are working hard every day to relieve the sufferings of cancer patients and raise awareness all around the country. This weekend is a perfect opportunity for all Torontonians to participate in the event called the Weekend to End Women’s Cancers taking place in our city. It’s one of the most important events of this month and I think all of us should show our support to those who really need it.
