Guerlain is one brand I grew up hearing a lot about since I was a little girl. For me from what I heard or saw at that time it symbolized luxury. Today, I had an opportunity to broaden my knowledge, learn and get to know about “Guerlain’s” perfume, skincare and makeup line. We got to watch some videos to show us a clearer picture about their products. All of their products are made from natural ingredients which are rare and they actually go out of their way to discover this through research. Among their popular ingredients are desert rose, orchids and bee products.
Among many products they have, I have picked out 5 which for me is I would definitely purchase either for personal use or for my dear clients.

1. Tenue De Perfection Foundation – It gives the skin good coverage, flawless and beautiful finish.
2. Meteorites Perles, Light-Diffusing Perfecting Primer- This is a very good primer as it corrects and perfects the base before applying the foundation. It also gives a glowing finish without looking shiny.
3. Rouge Automatique Lipstick- I just fell in love with the lipstick as its very moisturizing as well as long wearing. I was floored by the packaging.
4. Terracotta 4 Seasons Tailor -Made Bronzing Powder- I love this bronzer so much as you can choose from variety of different shades which works best with your skin. It looks beautiful and natural in the skin as well.
5. Gloss D’Enfer- This is a perfect lipgloss as its made from natural ingredients it moisturizes, hydrates and keeps the lips baby soft. I love the feel of it in my lips.
I was one of the lucky few who won a prize. I didn’t go home empty handed I actually won one of the products I was eyeing on, lipgloss. Thank you, Guerlain for this wonderful opportunity and inviting UMAP (United Makeup Artist of the Philippines) for this enlightening make up workshop. I honestly love and have fallen in love with all your products.

I have always wanted to be a beauty queen since I was 9 yrs old. I have looked up upon most of the beauty queens. I grew up watching beauty pageants. Aishwarya Rai was one of my favourite among them. I even used to admire her a lot and look up upon her.
This time for my blog I wanted to do something different, something I haven’t done before. Just the afternoon before I was about to work on the blog I got a flash to do this look.
Here’s my own version of a step by step tutorial on how to do this kind of makeup.
I started with my daily skin care routine of cleansing and toning. I skipped moisturizing because my face was very oily so I proceeded to applying the primer. After I applied Rcma foundation all over my face and then set it with Rcma colorless loose powder.
I applied graftobian’s pink cream blush. I opted to contour very lightly on the hollows of my cheekbones, temples, the sides of the bridge of my nose and my jaw line with Mac’s Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in Dark as I noticed Aishwarya’s makeup had minimal contour as well.
Using the Graftobian’s eyebrow pallete, I filled in the gap of my eyebrows with a dark brown eye shadow (e/s).
I started with priming my eye lid with Mac Prep and Prime Medium. Then I applied Mac’s Expensive Pink e/s in half of my lid and Mac’s Satin Taupe in the other half of my lid. Then I blended my crease with my Mac’s Rice Paper e/s and applied this to my brow bone as well. Then I applied black eyeliner in my upper lash line. Then curled my lashes, applied Mac’s Loud Lash mascara and applied false eyelashes. I applied Urban Decay’s Zero 24/7 glide-on eye pencil in my water line. In my lower lash line I applied Mac’s Satin Taupe e/s.
First, I lined my lips with Mac’s Cherry Lip Pencil and then with a lip brush I applied Mac’s Russian Red Lipstick.
Here’s my version of Holiday Makeup.
Here’s the step by step tutorial on how to achieve this makeup look.
After cleansing, toning and moisturizing my face, I applied Tarte clean slate flawless primer for my makeup to last long up to 10-12 hours. After which I applied RCMA foundation to have a flawless coverage. Then I set my make up with colorless RCMA loose powder.
I applied Graftobian’s pink cream blush to have a natural flush. I contoured the hollows of my cheekbones, temples, the sides of the bridge of my nose and my jawline with Mac’s Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in Dark.
I filled in the gap in my eyebrows with dark brown eye shadow (e/s) and then applied Mac’s Beguile Brow Set.
I started with priming my eye lid with Mac Prep and Prime Medium. Then I applied Mac’s Nylon e/s near my teardrop to open up my eyes and also applied this to my brow bone to highlight it. Then I applied Ell-If-I-Know Bare Minerals pigments on my lid and then applied Inglot’s AMC 65 e/s in the outer third of my lid. In my eye crease I applied Soul Sister Bare Minerals Pigments. I lined my upper lash line with Mac’s Blacktrack fluidline. In my water line, I applied Urban Decay’s Zero 24/7 glide-on eye pencil. Under it I applied Peace Urban Decay e/s in the inner third and then I applied Graffiti Urban Decay e/s.
