Make Up Must Haves

Functional Ingredients for Exceptional Color Formulations


Make-up, maybe more than any other category, is a marker of its times, as it reflects the current artistic and cultural influences, means of expression, and lifestyles. Current make-up trends tend towards a clean, no-makeup looking complexion, but with a possible pop of fun on the eyes or lips.

The Gattefossé beauty routine allows you to explore new make-up formulations and distinctive ingredients that bring new and enhanced functionality and highly sensory textures for complexion, eyes, and lips.


A flawless complexion


The first essential step of any beauty routine is complexion.

A neutral beige Concealer is the perfect solution to conceal minor blemishes that detract from our main, key beauty objective: a flawless complexion. Formulated with 4% Plurol® Diisostearique CG for lasting coverage, this corrector also provides hydration and long-lasting comfort supported by Acticire® MB.  And because no make-up product is complete these days without activity, this formulation also includes Cytobiol™ Lumin-Eye to progressively reduce under-eye bags and Gatuline® Link n Lift to erase eye contour wrinkles.

Once imperfections are concealed, there is no need for a heavy-coverage foundation that would emphasize drawn features and give a “painted” look.  In fact, the trend today is towards a much lighter, second-skin foundation.  Opt for a light texture, light CC Cream to harmonize and illuminate the complexion. With Emulium®Mellifera MB, the formula remains light, allowing an even complexion and a natural result.  A cocktail of active ingredients boosts the long-term activity: Cytobiol™ Iris A2 reduces shine and shrinks pores, while Gatuline®Spot-Light brightens the complexion and fights age-spots. The presence of UV filters completes this treatment, providing SPF15 protection.


A wow look


After complexion, the second essential step is eye make-up.  This is where Ultimate Eye Shadow comes into its own.  It is a golden creamy shadow, with hints of sparkles, that enhances the eyes, both during the day and at night. This natural product is very pleasant to use thanks to an unrivaled soft touch. Formulated with  Emulium® Mellifera MB and 5% Lipocire™ A SG, it is light, melting, and very soft.


A killer smile


The final step of any great look is a bold lip. Cheerful Lips is a beautiful raspberry-colored lipstick that perfectly and gently covers the lips. Present at 5%, Acticire® MB is a texturizing agent that bonds together waxes and oils in the formulation, while bringing hydration and comfort to the lips. Plurol® Diisostearique CG acts here as a wetting agent to easily disperse pigments into the oily phase. It also makes this lipstick naturally resistant to water, for a long lasting effect.

And there you have it! A beautiful look to take you through the day, powered by unique ingredients that bring improvements to texture and function.
