#6 Youthful and Radiantly Fresh Face (Guerlain)

This is all you need to have a beautiful fresh face this hug-fest season.
 A no make-up make-up look is a trick that YOU should memorize like the back of your head. Not only is it a "classic" look, it is also the most appropriate any day-any occasion-stress free-no fuss look you could consistently rely on. I mean, consistently.

The countdown to Christmas is always the busiest. You can very much see how traffic becomes severe and mall crowd becomes unpredictably heavy as the days move closer to the 25th of December. Don't let the holiday stress manifest on your face! For this look, I share with you the secret to looking fresh all-day (even after searching through racks and shelves at the malls and/or bazaars).

Please refer to the photo above for the products I'd mention. All products are by Guerlain.
    Highlight different points of your face, especially those that reflects light. Make those features pop. :)
  1. Guerlain Precious Light (Php 2,299) - I'm sure you've tried highlighting your face with a powder before. If not, then I welcome you to the art of face-highlighting. If yes, then be ready for the illuminating effects you can achieve with Guerlain's Precious Light Highlighting/Concealing Pen. Follow what I did in the photo above and turn your flaws to features in an instant!
  2. Guerlain Les Voilettes Mineral (Php 2,798) - When using powder foundation, I prefer applying my concealer first. After I used Guerlain Precious Light, which magically transforms problem areas into beautiful facial features, I used Mineral Foundation on my face. If you're an avid reader of my blog, you'd know that I love mineral make-up. Mineral make-up is gentler and healthier for the skin. I love Loose Mineral Powders for my make-up foundation specifically because it is super easy to achieve healthy looking flawless skin using Mineral Powders. If you're new with mineral make-up, Guerlain Les Voilettes Mineral is a great starting piece because of :
    • THE PACKAGING: I hate to admit this but as much as Mineral make-up is so amazing, it is also so messy to use (because it's loose and the texture is not the same as your usual talc powders--btw did you know that talc is actually bad for you!!) I love Guerlain Les Voilettes Mineral foundation's packaging because it has a big cap, which for brush users can be very helpful especially in loading brushes with the right amount of product. Other than the cap, it has a twist-and-lock packaging which makes it less messy especially when travelling. It's like a no leak technology, so to speak. Lastly, I love that it comes with the puffiest black powder puff. For starters, who do not have the many specific brushes most recommended for Mineral Powders, Guerlain's Les Voiletted Mineral Foundation comes with a puff that can actually maximize your foundation. See, zero wastage and efficiency in one luxuriously Gold packaging.
    • THE TEXTURE: I have tried some Mineral Powders that gives a matte finish, yes, but a dry finish as well.The great thing about Guerlain Les Voilettes Mineral Foundation is its creamy matte finish on the face. It isn't just healthy for your skin, it actually leaves a healthy smoothening surface on your skin as well!
  3. Le 2 de Guerlain Volumizing Mascara (Php 1,998) - I'm sure you're not surprised with a two brush mascara. Lots of mascaras out there comes with a primer (usually in white formulation) that primarily lengthens the lashes so the actual mascara (usually black) will have more foundation to hold on to. Le 2 de Guerlain Volumizing Mascara isn't anything like that. First off, it has two polymers that replaces the usual waxes found in mascara formulations. The formulation of the first brush covers the lashes with non-clumping color that is perfect to achieve bombshell peepers sans smokey shades. What then is the second brush for? The second brush is a wand similar to that of your lip gloss! Consequently, it acts as a lash gloss which coats each lash with super rich color that can make any eye noticably sexy and defined. I personally LOVE the lash gloss brush because bit is so small, it makes reaching even the lashes at the inner corner of my eye easy. TIP: the lash gloss brush is SO perfect for your bottom lashes! 
  4. Guerlain Meteorites Powder (Php 2,998) - Always set your make-up with face brightening powder so your make-up would last longer and your face would look more radiant, especially if you'd be spending your day indoors since indoor lighting have a tendency of making skin look dull and lifeless. My skin tone is perfect for Guerlain Meteorites in Beige Lumeniux 03. (Every time I say the name of the make-up I feel like fainting because it's so sexy) Guerlain Meteorites uses different colored pearl powders. For Beige Lumeniux 03, the purple pearls brightens my complexion while the beige/nude pearls make my skin have an extra flawless and healthy glow. 
Award-winning combination would be Guerlain Precious Light and Guerlain Meteorites Powder because combined, they make any face look young and radiant.

Say goodbye to haggard-looking pictures. Say hello to mischievous Monita smiles. :)
