Asking a beauty editor to choose her favourite makeup brand is like asking a mother to pick her favourite child: impossible. But if I could only use one brand of makeup for the rest of my life, Guerlain would definitely be among the top five contenders.
This fall’s collection is called “Beauté Slave”—that’s French for Slavic Beauty. And it’s gorge. Natalia Vodianova is the face, and I’m loving this whole Russian doll look: the rosy cheeks, the undone hair, the floral tapestries. Makes me want to ditch my minimalist black and welcome fall with a floor-sweeping gypsy dress.
Here’s the full scoop. (Hint: if you can only pick one thing from this collection, make it the pretty Russian Doll cream blush or the KissKiss Baby tinted lip balm. The eyeshadows are just too pretty for me to bear messing up with a makeup brush…)
