I am so excited to announce that this Makeup Monday post is in collaboration with Guerlain (such a huge milestone and honor, Thank You Guerlain for this wonderful opportunity!) Guerlain to me, is a brand that is both sophisticated and elegant. It is classy in every way and just makes you feel ultra luxurious. I have used Guerlain skincare and cosmetics for a few years now and in my mind, they can do no wrong. If you long for a classic elegance in your make up looks, then look no further. If you are the type that loves the dramatic, colorful and modern instagram make-up looks than this might not be for you - just being utterly honest. You won't see any 30 pan palettes in neon colors from Guerlain. What you get is beautiful, finely milled and carefully chosen colors that will compliment you.

Guerlain had generously sent me a few products to try out for this Makeup Monday post including the new (relaunch) of their foundation, Lingerie De Peau. The products sent were:
1. Lingerie De Peau in 03W - $69
2. The Foundation Brush - $53
3. Palette 5 Couleurs - 03 Coque D'or $69
4. Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Deliciously Shiny Lip Color - 011 Beige Lingerie - $37
5.Radiance Concentrate with Pure Gold Makeup Base - $81 (I had received this in a Guerlain gift bag from an event a few weeks back so I thought that this would be a perfect time to use it)

The concept behind the new relaunch of the Lingerie De Peau foundation is to turn "the dream of a perfect foundation into reality. A product so skin-fusing and natural that it cannot be felt or seen. A universal range now available in 14 shades for every skintone, so every woman can experience natural perfection". 

Thoughts: I LOVE this foundation. I am the type of girl that loves a sheer to medium coverage foundation that is easily buildable and is effortless in the application process. I love foundations that make my skin look airbrushed and natural without it looking like I have 10 pounds of make-up on. This foundation does just that! In addition, it leaves a silky satin finish on the face that isn't irritating after a full days wear and it also includes SPF 20 (yay for added skin benefits/protection). I have normal/combination skin (oily T-zone) but this foundation paired with the L'or Primer gave me a full days wear. Towards the 8th hour, I had to pat my nose with a tissue once to remove the excess oil but never once did I have to reapply or powder my nose.

This beautiful pink foundation brush paired with a gold handle has rounded bristles that is soft yet dense enough for even foundation application on the face. It also comes with a washable sleeve to effectively protect your brush when travelling. 

  
Here is a before and after of me with only one layer of the Lingerie de Peau foundation. As you can see, it has seamlessly been applied to my face and has blurred out any skin discolorations and imperfections, especially around the eyes, nose and chin area where my skin is a bit darker and uneven. I had actually followed the online Ideal Foundation Guide here to pick out the right color for me, and I think it did an excellent job! So if you're interested in picking out a color or finding out which foundation is right for you - give that link a go to see!

My eyelook is created using the Palette 5 Couleurs in Coq D'or - It includes a plastic cover (seen below) that acts as a guide for you. It helps you create either either a nude/natural look or a smoky one with the last two shadows on the right. I chose to take advantage of the beautiful dark olive forest green shade all over the lid (shade 5), and then use shade 4 on the outer corners. Then I used shade 3 in the crease to blend out any harsh lines. I have to say that I do wish the pigmentation of shade 4 and 5 was a bit stronger. In the look, I had just used all the shades on its own, however I found that if I used a colored shadow base first, the colors popped alot more. Therefore, next time, I think I will put a colored shadow base on first - then pack on the green and brown. For everyday, Shades 1-3 offers a beautiful wash of color to the lids, perfect for my work make-up look. Nothing too dramatic, just enough to offer a brightness to my lids and make me look more wide awake :)

Lastly, after applying brows, liner and mascara and a bit of concealer, I used the Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Deliciously Shiny Lip Color in 011 Beige Lingerie. It's a wonderful "my lips but better" shade. It is a rosey nude with a slight shine to it - I can wear this easily any time, even to work and without the mirror too as it is very forgiving. 

Ah, I forgot to mention - the L'or Primer offers a luminescence to my skin and made it feel tightened and gave my skin a smoothened canvas to work on, I now totally get what the hype around this primer is from YouTubers like Tati! 

I am so looking forward to trying out other items from Guerlain, especially the concealer and also am excited to see what other new products are launching!

Until next time, XO - M.
