Summer Skin: MAKE UP GOLD

In my previous post I discussed ways in which you can protect your skin from the sun but still obtain a healthy glow but now I want to share with you my latest love which is the Limited Edition Summer Collection from Guerlain. I really have fallen head over heels for this collection and am SO excited to say goodbye to pale Winter skin and fully embrace a radiant glow with help from some of these A-MAZING products. 

The new Guerlain Terracotta Sun in the City palette is what inititially caught my eye from this collection and I instantly had to have it. Gold is perhaps my favourite colour, so of course I was drawn to this product as it literally looks like gold in a compact form. The texture is unbelievably amazing, it feels so silky to the touch that it could almost be mistaken for a cream. The innovative powder formula creates an astonishingly light powder and has an intense concentrate with gold mother-of-pearl particles which capture and reflect light; creating a natural-looking radiant effect without looking overly iridescent. This golden shade is a universal colour which leaves a golden, luminous finish and is perfect as a highlighter, eyeshadow or even for use on the body.
I cannot get enough of this product and will be using it ALL Summer! 

This newest Terracotta Light Bronzing Powder utilizes fewer pigments then the usual Terrecota bronzer and has a feather light texture as the crystal pigment draws on the light and translucency to intensify a tan’s glow. The Terracotta Light is available in 4 colours and these unique combinations of bronzing shades match the varying tanned tones of blondes and brunettes. I love the selection of shades available as there are the shades for the earlier days of Summer for blondes and this has pink accents and soft tanned tones, which enhances the natural rosy color of blondes or those with fair skin. Then there is the shade for brunettes, which is enriched with coral touches and warmer shades which is said to add bright radiance to the golden tan of brunettes and olive skin. The other two shades are then designed for the height of Summer, for when a tan is at its deepest and again there is one for blondes and one for brunettes. The days of searching for the perfect shade of bronze are over.

The Guerlain Summer collection also introduces the new Terracotta Blush which is a gorgeous Sun Shimmer Highlighter, an easy-to-use formula that leaves the complexion fresh and illuminated for all types of tanned skin. Again, the key is Guerlain’s mother-of-pearl concentrate that adds luminosity to the cheekbones for a naturally flushed, glow while the feather light fluid gives a smooth, delicate finish. Terracotta Blush is available in two shades; again depending on your colourings and these are Sunny Pink- designed for blondes which enhances the rosy color of fair cheeks or the Spicy Coral which is ideal for brunettes.

Let me know if you have tried any of these products and what you think!
