Saturday morning… a pampering Guerlain makeup session at Sephora, the perfect way to start my weekend…but this day was special, not just an ordinary free makeup session hosted in another beauty shop. This day I got to meet Jose-Luis Yuve, Guerlain trainer and Export International Make-Up Artist and I had the privilege to spent a couple of hours in his company, enjoying a wonderful discussion but also receiving valuable beauty advices while he did my makeup.
I was really anxious to see what type of makeup look would Jose-Luis choose for me so I felt flattered when he told me I would look so sexy wearing an Italian Smokey Eye Look, just like the one Olivier Echaudemaison created for Sophia Loren. This type of look is meant to elongate the eyes, making them appear bigger by darkening the outer corner of the eye while keeping the inner corner more luminous. When Jose-Luis starts applying makeup everything seems to be so easy, the perfect blending and his impeccable techniques would make even the most complex makeup seem so simple, as for this look he only used two of the new Guerlain Ecrin 1 Colour shades (review, photos, swatches).
