Guerlain Terracotta Makeup Collection for Summer 2013

It’s that time of the year when brands start bringing out their pre-summer collections that you can take  with you on  a mini break or a proper holiday. And, oh my goodness, I really need on of those and have my fingers crossed for one around May time…

So let’s take a look at the gorgeous Guerlain Terracotta collection for this summer, 2013.

TERRACOTTA 4 SEASONS Tailor-made Bronzing Powder £46.50 / €62

This is a cult product already and doesn’t even need an introduction, this year Guerlain added several new shades to the range:

00 NUDE For pale complexions. Comes with a fresh pink blush to illuminate the complexion, 02 NATURAL BLONDES, 03 NATURAL BRUNETTES, 08 EBONY For dark complexions. Comes with a red blush.

Other shades are: 04 MEDIUM BLONDES and 05 MEDIUM BRUNETTES.

00 Nude sounds amazing!

Olivier Échaudemaison application tips:

“Apply your Terracotta powder by tracing a figure “3” on each side of the face: from the forehead down towards the cheeks, then down along the jaw line to the chin and down the neck.

For the finishing touch, take a little more Terracotta powder with your brush and sweep it over the raised areas of the face, the places that catch the sun most – the forehead, nose, cheekbones and chin. The result is an instant glow.’

TERRACOTTA SKIN Glow-enhancing perfector £34/€46

This gives you a corrective coverage of a foundation  and the sheer transparency of a Terracotta powder, this powdery cream creates perfect make-up results while unifying your complexion and giving it a subtle, healthy glow.

Available in Nude, Blondes and
