I hope you have your nerves with you today because a long article awaits for you below. I have tons of things to say and its because I had the honor to be invited to a morning in the Guerlain universe.
I left mesmerized and here`s why:
p.s. I need to get my hands on that Meteorites miracle product.

Guerlain started to mesmerize me ever since I was little and all the women in my family (because we are many – my grandmother has 3 sisters) used Guerlain perfumes especially SHALIMAR(1925) which is the first oriental fragrance in the history of perfumery. Its name, which means “temple of love” in Sanskrit, is also the name of a bewitching Indian garden.
Maybe it`s because I got familiar with this brand at an age of intense dreaming and fairy tales but even today when I touch a Guerlain product a sort of magical feeling arises inside me.
Since 1828, Guerlain Beauty has been synonymous with the promise of Sensual Pleasure. Guerlain’s Creative Daring opens the doors to a Dream that takes you on a journey through space and time. Over generations of perfumers, Guerlain has marked history with legendary olfactory masterpieces that have withstood the test of time and fashion; fragrances that pay tribute to the most beautiful raw materials and craftsmanship in its purest form.
The first expression of the Art of the unique is without doubt the Art of raw materials.
That`s why when I got an invitation to meet the Guerlain official make-up artist – Jose Luis, this original, talented and special personality – there were no words to be said. I was there.
Jose Luis Yuve was in Romania for three days at the Guerlain stand from Sephora Baneasa and he came especially for all the beautiful customers who wanted to try a unique make-up made by him. Well, I was one of them.
And during our conversation I learned a few make-up tricks also, like applying concealer (Precious Light 01) on the superior eyelid too. Or to use this special Guerlain powder called Meteorites Compact Powder 02 (clair) for highlighting your skin. A CULT PRODUCT: A GENUINE VEIL OF PERFECTION! Three harmonies are available: Clair, Medium and Doré.
From the outset Guerlain has been renowned for creating the most extraordinary powders and innovative lipsticks, and as such is widely regarded as the leading make-up artist.
A must-have, often imitated, but never equalled. A concentrate of sun which perfectly mimics the sun’s caress on the skin, and provides every woman with her dream tan: ENJOY A HEALTHY GLOW AND RADIANT, TANNED COMPLEXION ALL YEAR ROUND
“A TERRACOTTA POWDER IS SOLD EVERY 25 SECONDS IN THE WORLD!”
INSPIRED BY LIGHT, CREATED BY GUERLAIN
And after a few questions I`ve discovered that Jose Luis prefers Glamour before Minimalism. Red lipstick before nude colors and Outstanding women before Normcore. What can I say, he`s my kind of person
And because I don`t want me to be the only lady who got pampered by Guerlain here`s your surprise:
