Natural glow foundation 16h wear - SPF 20.
Naturalness and makeup performance come together for the first time at Guerlain. A foundation made with 97% naturally-derived ingredients* with a natural glow finish that lasts for 16 hours**. The complexion is perfect, luminous and fresh. The comfortable texture becomes one with the skin, making it ideal for buildable coverage (light to medium).

The formula lets the skin breathe; hydrates, balances and protects the skin from pollution. The complexion is more even; the appearance of imperfections is reduced. A unique and disruptive bottle by the designer Mathieu Lehanneur, inspired by the subtle art of balance.
Available in 30 shades to match every skin tone.

- 1) Activate: To awaken the complexion, pat the skin with the L'Essentiel brush before applying make-up. Start at the inner corner of the eye, go to the ear, and then down towards the chin
- 2) Prepare: Use Abeille Royale Youth Watery Oil as a primer. Apply two to three drops of the oil to the face and neck. The skin appears instantly smoother, plumper and revitalised
- 3) Unify: Apply the foundation directly to the L’Essentiel brush, depending on the desired level of coverage: one drop for light coverage, two to three drops for medium coverage. Then dab the foundation onto the face at five points: forehead, nose, chin, left and right cheeks. Pat and blend the foundation from the centre of the face outwards until the result is even
- 4) Enhance: Add a finishing touch to the face make-up with Météorites Compact for a shine-control effect followed by Terracotta Light for a sun-kissed healthy-looking glow
