What’s On My Desk: LORAC Founder Carol Shaw

Ever wonder what the most powerful leaders, business execs and celebrities keep on their desks? Well, we’re about to tell you. Our biweekly “What’s on My Desk” feature will take a look inside the offices and at the desks of the world’s most influential power players.

This week we’ve featured the desk of Carol Shaw, the founder and creator of LORAC cosmetics. Shaw first worked at a salon in LA before eventually moving to fashion, where she worked with world famous photographers and models while racking up a slew of magazine cover credits. Her celebrity clientele grew so devoted, Shaw has been known to book-up a year in advance for the Academy Awards. Through the years, Shaw noticed that most of her clients had the same major grievances about skincare and makeup as she did. They complained that too many products irritated their skin, looked and felt artificial, and simply didn’t last. So Shaw set out to develop a line of products that met these standards, using the purest and mildest ingredients possible. Three years later, LORAC (which is Carol spelled backwards) was born. May we at Haute Living present the items on this haute makeup guru’s desk.
