Natural Versatility with Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons Powder
Are you looking for highly versatile and natural looking bronzing powders? You may want to consider trying the new Terracotta 4 Seasons Powder by Guerlain. This is an interesting set because the colors are meant to be mixed and matched to achieve the effect that best suits your complexion, time of the year, dress choice and personal preference. Guerlain make-up calls it a “tailor made” bronzing powder, and when used correctly, the quality of this set does shine through.
Terracotta 4 Seasons Powder by Guerlain features four caramelized matte colors available in six harmonies: nude, sheer blondes, sheer brunettes, blondes, brunettes and ebony. By choosing a set that matches your complexion, you’ll find superior results and an astounding natural look. Depending on how you combine the hues in your set, you can easily achieve contouring or bronzing that looks very elegant and tasteful.
To achieve impeccable contouring, you should start by using a shade a little darker than your skin tone and use it to give contrast to your features. Try brushing some of these bronzing powders below the cheekbones and along the cheek’s hollow. You can apply it along the eyelids to make your eyes stand out, or along the sides of the nose to achieve a cleaner contoured look. Next, apply a shade lighter than your natural skin tone to add highlights and bring out your best features. It’s the contrast between a darker shade and lighter shade that conveys a very clean and elegant effect that can dramatically change how your features are perceived.
For simple bronzing, uniformly apply the shade that suits you best. Guerlain make-up recommends using their Terracotta brush and applying shade from the forehead down in a “3” gesture, then from the jawline to the neck. The right shade will change depending on a number of factors such as the season of the year or even just the colors you’re wearing that day. That’s just why the Terracotta 4 Seasons Powder is a stroke of genius: in a single set, you get bronzing power that suits you around the year, in every occasion.
