Makeup trends change as the seasons go by and finding suitable options ahead of time is one of the best ways to keep up with them. Short time after releasing their fall 2011 collection, high-end brand Guerlain has already released photos of the holiday 2011 collection which is to be released in October. The newest collection set by the brand, called Belle de Nuit, is designed for strong, confident women who are not afraid to take risks.
Taking inspiration from the Vol de Nuit fragrance created by Jacques Guerlain in 1933 in honor of the female aviators of that time, creative director Oliver Échaudemaison has created a sophisticated new limited edition collection around many of the same principles.
Guerlain Parure de Nuit Pressed Powder & Blush ($67) The perfect lightweight option to help women shine all night long, the Parure de Nuit Pressed Powder & Blush combines iridescent deep pink and blue green tones with a translucent sheen in order to deliver an ultra flattering makeup style in a matter of minutes by evening out the skin tone and illuminating the face at the same time.
Guerlain Les Ombres de Nuit 4-Colour Palette ($59) Creating a striking, unforgettable nighttime makeup is best done by paying special attention to the eyes and finding the best possible shades to make them stand out. Les Ombres de Nuit Colour Palette offers 4 oh-so-versatile tones for a strong yet elegant eye makeup style. Green, blue and grey pearlescent particles along with a metallic finish and a fabulous matte black shade will ensure that you create a memorable impression every single time.
Guerlain Météorites Perles de Nuit ($56) One of the iconic products created by the brand, the Météorites Perles de Nuit is the ideal choice for illuminating and evening out the skin tone and ultimately creating that allure of perfect skin every women wishes. With golden tones to reflect light, orange to boost radiance and silver to add shimmer, the success of this beauty mission is guaranteed.
Guerlain Vol de Nuit Perfumed Shimmer Powder for Face & Body ($87) Perhaps the central product of the collection, the Vol de Nuit Perfumed Shimmer Powder for Face & Body brings back the iconic and revolutionary scents first created by the brand in a modern interpretation. Vanilla and iris notes will pamper your senses, while the luminous powder with universally flatting soft pink tones is the ultimate understated beauty accessory.
Guerlain Rouge Automatique ($35) Thanks to the revolutionary second skin texture created by the brand, women who choose the Guerlain Rouge Automatique lipstick will benefit from a long lasting formula that will enable them to look and feel seductive at all times, without worries about frequent touch-ups. Flirt d’un Jour (Soft and luminous pink) and Nuit d’Amour (Black red that reveals an intense plum color) are the options provided in this limited edition collection.
As previously mentioned, the collection is set to be launched in October and will be available in stores like Saks, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Sephora, Bergdorf’s and Bloomingdales.
