Themed Cosmic Beauty, the French house presents its 2018 Christmas collection, featuring its most loved Rouge G de Guerlain customise lipstick, KissKiss lipstick, Gloss D’Enfer Maxi Shine, the legendary Pearl Météorites and a face and eye palette, all in the exclusive galactic shades.
And who better to show us how to work with the collection than Guerlain's international makeup artist Anthony Chasset?
Scroll down to read more about Guerlain's Christmas makeup collection, the latest Double R Serum and the Mon Guerlain EDT.
What is the theme of Guerlain 2018 Christmas makeup collection and which are the products highlights?
Before we start, I have to say that Guerlain is the first brand to introduce the idea of a "Christmas Collection" back in the 60s and every year, there's always one or two products that are really worth to keep.
This year, the collection is all about being glamorous and sophisticated at the same time. We have this Gloss d'Enfer Maxi Shine, a range of lip glosses that comes with a metallic finish and very concentrated pigments.
Also, the 'Electric Look Palette' which features two highlighters and eight eyeshadows that allows you to start the day with natural nude make up and walk into the night with shimmering, glowy looks.
What is the trending festive beauty look and how can we recreate it with Guerlain's Christmas collection?
A lot of distinctive looks are spotted on the runway this season. We adore the no-makeup look, where we can see the skin and the imperfection, yet the smokey eye is also making a comeback with an edgier, stronger line and a sprinkle of shimmer underneath the eyes. The lips are either going nature or tinted with gothic shades such as burgundy and dark red.
And what makes Guerlain's 2018 makeup collection so perfect to recreate the trending looks is the assorted pigments from neutral to bold, from matte to metallic. You can begin with the natural shades and finish with a fabulous illuminating touch.
As a new edition to Abeille Royale range, what is the latest innovation of the Double R Serum?
The Abeille Royale range is definitely one of our proudest range. It's so successful globally and loved for its noble ingredients and instant, powerful result. Made from Black Bee Honey and Royal Jelly -which are famous for their medical usage in healing severely burned patients, the latest Double R Serum is about renewing and repairing your skin.
It repairs the skin, reduces the redness and inflammation; and reduces the signs of ageing by stimulating the renewal cycle of the epidermis – delivering a smoother, firmer, brighter and healthier skin with its enhanced two-in-one formula.
Guerlain's fragrance is all about the idea of femininity, how can the new Mon Guerlain EDT bring out the elegance and strength of a woman?
I think the Mon Guerlain EDT is the best way for a Guerlain lady to bring out her very own kind of feminity and different personalities.
It is blended with fresh mandarins and organic Carla lavenders; finished with the hint of Sambac Jasmine and a sensual Vanilla note, which evoke a subtle, tender yet spirited feminity.
Among all the ranges from Guerlain, what are your favourites for Christmas?
Definitely the Eau de Parfum Mon Guerlain. As you know Guerlain is a house that loved for its 360° beauty care – you can treat your skin with the skincare ranges, you can enhance your looks with the makeup and reveal your charm and personality with the fragrance.
So I'd say you should also get the Rogue G de Guerlain, our latest customizable lipstick that you can pick your case, shade and style. I would also go for the Double R Serum as well as the Orchidée Impériale Black The Cream – our skincare masterpieces.
