With the autumn rolling in already and the holidays getting closer, the makeup we wear should be matching with the events themselves. The beauty of Guerlain could never be disputed so when the announcement of the Guerlain holiday 2016 makeup collection came out, fans everywhere rejoiced. With a tantalizing photoshoot added to the campaign, the new Guerlain holiday 2016 makeup collection is due to launch in the United States within the month of October 2016, while we shall see it in Canada and internationally at Nordstrom, Sephora, Harrods and Selfridges come November.
It is an incredibly enchanting Christmas collection, and while there is at least another 3 months to go before we get into those celebrations, it’s always good to plan your getup ahead. That includes the makeup you’ll be wearing out to the myriad of parties you will attend.
The collection is rather different this year and we are certainly happy about that. Furthermore, it is good to know that the money spent on must-haves is also donated to a just cause, with the face of Guerlain, Natalia Vodianova, revealing that part of the profits will be given to her non-profit, The Naked Heart Foundation, in order to help ensure children all over Russia have a safe and stimulating place to play, no matter their level of impoverishment.
She also supports foster families and biological ones raising disabled children, and trying to prevent the abandonment of the little ones due to their disabilities, a problem much too common in the former CIS. The prices are a little on the steep side, but this is Guerlain we are talking about and the quality is superb!
