Guerlain Terracotta Bayadère Face & Eyes Contour Palette

Published: 2015-08-05 by Marina Milojević in Makeup

The house of Guerlain has just unveiled an exclusive new limited edition product. This time, the famous Parisian brand introduces the gorgeous new Terracotta Bayadère Face & Eyes Contour Palette, which brings a fresh new twist to the cult classic Terracotta range. This versatile palette comprises two contouring and two highlighting shades, which can be used for the face and eyes. The palette is presented in a sleek black compact with integrated mirror and two applicators: one for the bronzer, and one for eye shadows. Everything is placed in a soft pink velvet pouch, which also brings a new dimension of sophistication and elegance.

There are two bronzing powders to choose from – Terracotta 03, a larger shade, should be used to enhance the complexion, while the Terracotta 05, a smaller strip of color, sculpts and contours the lines of your face. The palette also includes a gold highlighting shade, and a pink-coral shade, which can be used as a blush.


Use deeper shades for contouring, as they create depth and definition. These shades should be applied in the hollows of the face, such as under the cheek bones or the crease of the eyelids, to accentuate the bone and create a more sculpted look. Highlighter shades are great to open and illuminate your best features, so we recommend using them over the cheekbones, in the inner corners of the eye, or right below the brow. For bronzing, stick to the famous Guerlain’s "3" gesture, and apply the bronzer by tracing and blending a figure three on each side of the face – forehead, around the cheekbones, along the jaw to the chin….

The Guerlain Terracotta Bayadère Face & Eyes Contour Palette is a seasonal limited edition product, and it is currently available for purchase at Neiman Marcus. The palette retails at $70.00.
