Holiday Make Up: Shalimar by Guerlain’s muse Natalia Vodianova

“The most beautiful thing in the world, after the beauty is light.” Charles Dollfus.

The woman who embodies the Guerlain Shalimar fragrance worldwide has designed, with Olivier Echaudemaison, an exclusive make-up collection inspired by the sumptuousness and riches of Imperial India. This collection is composed of eight exceptional products inspired by the Shalimar legend.

“To illuminate your face, apply this shade to the cheekbones, the outer corner of the eye, the bridge of the nose and the Cupid’s bow.”
For the first time, Guerlain creates in partnership with Natalia Vodianova, L’Ecrin Shalimar, an exclusive shimmery eyeshadow duo for an unforgettable smoky look for Christmas.

In collaboration with Olivier Echaudemaison, Creative Director of Guerlain, she has created her own make-up collection designed like a journey into the heart of the East. Inspired by gold and sapphire Indian jewels, this Oriental edition of the eye shadow duo from Guerlain offers two precious shades, with multiple metallic reflections.

MÉTÉORITES PERLES DE LÉGENDE Light-Revealing Pearls of Powder.
These three colours of beads, inspired by the colours of the mosaics in Indian palaces, have specific actions: they enhance the natural colour of the cheeks and the freshness of the complexion (pink pearls); they correct an uneven skin tone and dark circles (blue pearls); they warm up and illuminate the cheekbones (gold pearls).


PRECIOUS LIGHT Pearly Pink Illuminator.
Natalia Vodianova’s tip: apply this shade to the cheekbones, the outer corner of the eye, the bridge of the nose and the Cupid’s bow to illuminate the face.


TERRACOTTA TERRA INDIA Shimmering Bronzing Powder.
Natalia Vodianova’s tip: apply using the “three” technique invented by Olivier Echaudemaison.

L’OR EYELINER Felt Eyeliner Sparkling Gold.
Natalia Vodianova’s tip: apply a stroke of gold eyeliner on top of Ecrin Shalimar Eyeshadows to bring out eyes.


SOUFFLE D’OR DE SHALIMAR Perfumed Iridescent Body and Hair Powder. Natalia Vodianova’s tip: apply this powder to the backs of the hands and the wrists so that subtle scent of Shalimar is exuded whenever hands move.


ROUGE G Exceptional Complete Lip Colour.
Rouge G’s deep colour was inspired by the ‘Bindi’, the red dot that Indian women apply between their eyes and that symbolises the universal principle of creation.


KISSKISS Creamy Shaping Lip Colour 563 Indian Pink.
Natalia Vodianova’s tip: apply on cheekbones to heighten their colour.
