Get in the mood for the Holiday season 2016 with the new make-up collection by Guerlain and Natalia Vodianova.
For the first time, Russian topmodel Natalia Vodianova, Guerlain’s modern muse, has created her own make-up collection in collaboration with Olivier Echaudemaison, Guerlain’s Creative Director.
“I wanted to name my first collection Shalimar, in homage to the fragrance that I have been the face of for eight years and that symbolises my link to Guerlain,” says Natalia. “I have known Olivier since I started out; he’s someone very important to me and a very dear friend. We worked together with the whole development team for a year on this project. I loved working on the textures and colours and the packaging design.”

“I am a great romantic and the Shalimar legend that tells the story of the passionate love between Shah Jahan and his beloved wife Princess Mumtaz Mahal has always fascinated me,” explains Natalia. “I wanted to revive the sumptuousness and riches of Imperial India through my collection. This is why I created a gold and blue design reminiscent of Indian jewellery boxes for this Météorites pack. I was also inspired in the choice of the colours by precious metals and stones: gold and sapphire. ”

For the KissKiss lipstick, Natalia chose a warm and intense fuchsia shade like Indian pigments. “Rouge G’s deep colour reminds me of the Bindi, the red dot that Indian women apply between their eyes and that symbolises the universal principle of creation,” she says.
