Barely there – how to get flawless results.

The look.

Nude, flawless, second skin, the desire for natural dewy youthful skin is a year round trend.

However, appearing as if you’re not wearing any makeup at all is a high art that demands a little practice. It actually is much harder to create and requires high end products to give you that ‘barely there’ look.

To create this perfect texture, I reach for the new ultra-sensory and extremely light Guerlain Lingerie de Peau line that becomes one with the face like a sensual second skin and provides long-lasting comfort thanks to technology borrowed from the world of fabrics.

The search for the perfect foundation capable of revealing the skin without transforming it, enhancing it without suffocating it can be exhausting. A flawless complexion is the ultimate quest for women worldwide, even if the definition of a flawless complexion varies from one climate and country to another: freshness, evenness, luminosity, translucency, but also coverage, a healthy glow…  however, there is one common denominator: a natural look.


The science bit.

A Guerlain invention, this technology weaves natural silk and linen fibres and knits them with stretch fibres with smoothing properties to form a featherlight veil that hugs the face and guarantees total lasting comfort. Correcting pigments and powders perfectly entwine into this micro-mesh to create a skin-fusion effect. The airy texture glides effortlessly over the skin for endlessly buildable coverage.

The Lingerie de Peau formula offers the right balance between truth and idealisation, showcasing without transforming, creating the impression of naturally beautiful skin. It delivers a healthy glow while allowing skin to shine through.


The result.

A range of 18 shades that perfectly correspond to all skin colours, both in terms of intensity and undertone, for an incredibly natural, seamless result. No concealment, just a little enhancement, a carefully crafted nude, like an elegant strip-tease. With Lingerie de Peau, the face is radiant; there is no longer a gap between how we see ourselves with or without make-up. We remain recognisable, but have that extra beauty boost that embellishes without altering. Thanks to Lingerie de Peau, our ruses – invisible to the naked eye – remain a secret!

To get it right!

Make-up artists use powder brushes to apply fluid foundation. This tip allows you to obtain an even more natural result. An elegant powder pink accessory, the Lingerie de Peau Brush may therefore easily be mistaken for a powder brush. Its dense and extremely soft tuft of pink hairs takes up just the right amount of product. There’s no risk of overloading the brush and application has never been so quick, easy, smooth and even.
