Today it will be all about Christmas makeup collections and since I started with Dior Grand Bal Holiday 2012 Collection (info & photos) now is Guerlain Holiday 2012 Makeup Collection‘s turn to be on the spot light. This year Guerlain comes up with an unusual combinations of colors for holiday season who are more likely to be worn in the fall but very pretty nonetheless.
This year’s beautiful holiday collection celebrates Guerlain’s 1929 classic fragrance: Liu. Inspired by the heroine of Puccini’s great opera, Turandot, Jacques Guerlain composed this captivating fragrance that embodies the power of devotion. In the story, Liu is a young slave who chooses to commit suicide rather than reveal the name of her master with whom she is in love. Guerlain Creative Director, Olivier Echaudemaison, captures Liu’s passion with a limited edition make-up collection, paying tribute to the Asian heroine’s enchanting femininity and sense of detail. Golden hues, deep red lips, and tapered eyes capture the opulence of the Orient, allowing every woman to become a heroine this holiday season.
International Launch Date – October 2012
