EZ Beauty: Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons Tailor-Made Bronzing Powder

guerlain terracotta 4 seasons tailor-made bronzing powder

The right bronzer can add colour, warmth and radiance to your face, and when used strategically, can sculpt, shape and slim your features, too (because no one needs to know about those extra servings of gelato if you don’t want them to).

When you are the world’s authority on bronzer, as Guerlain most certainly is, it only makes sense to double down on your winning formula. The new 4 Seasons palette includes a gradient of shades divided into four quadrants. Go light in the cooler months and darker in the warmer. Blend together to create a custom colour. Or use one for blush and another to contour. Play, experiment, and be merry.

If you’re unfamiliar with bronzer as a whole and astonished at the price tag, know that this one is the crème de la creme and adored for its moisturizing quality (a benefit so very unique the formulation is guarded dearly by the brand). It’s also devoid of the shiny finish associated with inexpensive products (it is matte, rich, and feels silky upon application).

The best part about this new re-imagining is that it includes more options for women of colour. They have now introduced four new compacts: 08 Ebony that is appropriate for darker complexions (up to an NW45 or NC50); 00 Nude, a very light palette described as appropriate for pale, Asian complexions; 02 Natural Blondes; and 03 Natural Brunettes.
