Guerlain is always a good idea
Guerlain. I see Guerlain not just as a brand but more as a state of mind.
You see, when i think about Guerlain – and i do, a lot, because i love their products, from makeup to perfumes – i think about parisian ladies in their flawless faces and effortless outfits.
Guerlain guides us into an elegant parisian world, with the beautiful packing details, and the dream’s smell of all their makeup.
I’m a huge Guerlain fan, and my favorite foundation couldn’t be from other brand. It is Parure de Lumière and i can’t live without it. I’ll tell you why: as soon as you apply it, your skin will look beautiful, smooth and flawless. Like if you have that perfect flawless skin, naturally.
Other favorite of mine from the brand is Meteorites Perles de Blush Angelic Radiance, a limited edition blush that i absolutely love (and my pale face too).
When i think about Guerlain – and i do, a lot, because i love their make up – i think about parisian ladies in their flawless faces and effortless outfits.
So, when i travel i always carry these two Guerlain babies with me (sometimes i carry Meteorites as well), because they are amazing makeup products and make me feel pretty when i apply them. Pure dream.
As i’ve stayed on this beautiful place called “ A Casa Portuguesa”, and felt in love with the literature room and its walls, i knew i needed some pics there. It’s way too beautiful not to share. Why not with my Guerlain favorites, i though.
Fernando Pessoa, or should i say Álvaro de Campos – a brilliant portuguese writer and his heteronym – (if you don’t know him go check it out) was on the wall watching me getting my make up done and applying blush. How couldn’t i shoot it?
He wrote, in one of his poems, “i have in me all the dreams of the world”. One of my dreams is to visit Guerlain’s maison and all the creative process behind the make up. One day it will become true. Or so i hope.
