03 Apr Photos, Preview: Guerlain Terra Azzurra Summer 2012 Makeup Collection by Emilio Pucci
“A beautiful summer is a summer when the warm sunlight blends with the scents of the Mediterranean” “Guerlain by Emilio Pucci” embodies the union of two prestigious Houses in perfect synergy. This exceptional makeup collaboration draws its inspiration from summertime in the Italian Riviera, with its light-hearted and energetic “dolce vita” attitude that welcomes the warm, sea weather. Created by Guerlain Creative Director, Olivier Échaudemaison, and Pucci’s Image Director, Laudomia Pucci, the collection embraces summer with delightfully sunny shades and vibrant bursts of color. The common thread of this second collaboration is a motif inspired by an iconic print, “Winter Capri”, taken from the Emilio Pucci archives. Exclusively retouched for this collection, this signature print, a blue flower interlaced with swirls and flames, adds a joyful and elegant Pucci touch to the Guerlain summer products.
TERRA AZZURRA BRONZING POWDER & BLUSH – $75.00
The star of the collection, this exquisite powder and blush combines two success stories: Guerlain’s legendary Terracotta powder and Emilio Pucci’s iconic prints. The world of beauty and fashion unite in a single case to beautifully enhance the complexion. Half bronzer and half blush, this hybrid powder has a lightweight formula and offers a universal harmony of four
shades. The outer case pays tribute to the paneling of a Riva yacht with an ebony-colored varnished wood. Presented in an accessory pouch printed with the Pucci motif, this is the ultimate summer accessory.
• For a natural effect: apply just the bronzing shade all over the face.
• For a bronzed complexion: blend the three blush shades and sweep along the top of the cheekbones to sculpt the face.
MÉTÉORITES PERLES D’AZUR – $58.00
These must-have multi-colored little pearls are adopting their summer wardrobe! Encased in Pucci adorned packaging, Météorites Perles D’azur is enriched with a corrective blue pearl to create a flawless complexion. Formulated like the classic Météorites Perles, the Perles d’Azur beautifully adapts to the demands of the sun by combining six colors that even out and correct every skin tone.
• Corrective effect: blue and pink counter the yellow tones in tired complexions.
• Skin-evening effect: beige and orange warm up the complexion and create an even tan.
• Illuminating effect: ivory and white gold are light reflectors without a whitening effect.
