This season, Guerlain goes back to basics with rose-themed essentials for its autumn collection.
Guerlain explores new ground for the rose with the Bloom of Rose collection, which brings a breath of lightness and well-being to autumn, offering vibrant, natural shades to maintain a beautiful, post-holiday glow.
At the launch of the Bloom of Rose collection several weeks ago at Marina Bay Sands, celebrity makeup artist, Grego Oh shares his personal insights, tips and tricks on how to achieve the ultimate autumn day look.
Using a royal-blue palette, he sets out to create a look that is slightly more unconventional and adventurous yet totally wearable for every woman. Blues and greys compliment all skin types and really helps accentuate and bring definition to our Asian eyes. When it comes to darker palettes, I, like Grego, prefer using brushes too as it is more clean and precise.
I adore the choice of cheek and lip colours Grego selected for his model. Pink hues spell femininity while oozing healthy vibes and a touch of blush (06 Pink Me Up) brings a sense of lightness and complements the smokey grey blue on her eyes.
Overall, it's a beautiful look that Grego has created and even if you don't generally lean towards blues and greys, you can still appreciate and fall head over heels for this look!
Guerlain also released an earth-toned palette which is to die for. I'm a huge earthy toned person because I prefer colours that are very subtle and looks that are very light and natural. However, it's always good to go out of your comfort zone and explore something different, you never know if you end up liking it! :)
I love this season's range of blushers and lip colours. They have almost every colour to suit any look for every skin type! So jaw-droppingly beautiful and luscious and I WANT THEM ALL! The lipsticks feel more like a balm with colour and are ultra-moisturing, so this is perfect for women with dry, chappy lips, which is especially apt for our current haze situation in Singapore.
The blushers have great staying power and the colour I got in 06 Pink Me Up might look intimidating on the palette but is nothing like. You'd only require a bit of the product for a natural, healthy glow which is more than sufficient to last the entire day.
I strongly suggest going down to the Guerlain counters to try out the products personally, that way, you can decide for yourself which colours suit you best!
Good luck and have fun ladies! :)
