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). With 'L'Essentiel', bare skin is more beautiful, day after day. 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. An 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. *Calculation based on the international ISO standard 16128 Parts 1 and 2. The remaining 3% contribute to optimising the formula's integrity over time and its sensorial texture. **Instrumental test conducted by an independent laboratory on 20 women.
How to use: Activate - to awaken the complexion, pat the skin with the 'L'Essentiel' brush before applying makeup. Start at the inner corner of the eye, go to the ear and then down towards the chin. Prepare - use 'Abeille Royale' Youth Watery Oil as a primer. Apply 2 to 3 drops of the oil to the face and neck. The skin appears instantly smoother, plumper and revitalised. Unify - apply the foundation directly to the 'L'Essentiel' brush, depending on the desired level of coverage, 1 drop for light coverage, 2 to 3 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. Enhance - add a finishing touch to the face makeup with 'Météorites' Compact for a shine-control effect followed by Terracotta Light for a sun-kissed healthy-looking glow.
