Inspired by the European quest for the ultimate tan, Laura Mercier's latest collection allows you to achieve perfectly sun-kissed skin and coveted healthy glow without the skin damage. "As we become more conscious of protecting our skin, less and less women will tan at full capacity, which is why the J'adore le Soleil collection can give you that little bit of 'sun' without the need to over-tan," Laura explains. As an insousciant French woman with a love of looking bronzed all year around, Laura imagined a collection that allows women to build a tan easily with only two products; a bronzer and a highlighter. "The Soleil Matte Veil Powder and Soleil Matte Veil Creme are ideal for adding intensity to already tanned skin or deepening darker skin tones, resonating well with the women in the Middle East," she tells Bazaar. Tried and tested, each product from the collection can be used individually or can be layered, depending on the tan intensity you desire - a head start for the holidays. So who is the Laura Mercier woman? "She's condifent and strong and she can be playful with her make-up or discreet. She is every woman, at any age, who wants to look their best."
