An absolute legend and a planetary must-have, Terracotta powder by Guerlain has been weaving its destiny since 1984. Inspired by a trip to the heart of the desert, it captures all the reflections of the sun and lights up the complexion with an instant natural sun-kissed glow. And since skin is never more beautiful than when it is tanned, Guerlain is enriching the Terracotta legend with an even more desirable face and body ritual for a longer-lasting beautiful tan.
Like a ray of morning sunshine, sheer and luminous. Terracotta Nude powder is a delicate and seamless veil that illuminates the complexion. Its lightweight texture smoothes the skin and instantly revives its glow with a quick stroke of the brush for a naturally warmed bare-skin effect, that is unique to each woman.
Terracotta Nude comes in a universal shade that adapts to any skin tone with a chameleon ingredient: Gemnude Light. Its exclusive and sheer shade blends naturally with any skin colouring to even out the complexion and brings out the natural beauty of all skin tones.

How to use:
To naturally illuminate and warm the entire face, try the Guerlain secret: trace a '3' on the skin. Apply the nude glow powder with a brush, tracing a '3' on each side of the face, from the forehead to the cheekbones, from the cheekbones to the chin, finishing with a stroke down the neck. Then lightly brush down the centre of the face from the forehead to the chin.
