Every woman knows that the right makeup choices can do wonders – not just to enhance your appearance, but to add that je ne sais quoi (something special that cannot be described) to your confidence. Like the latest range by artisanal French brand Ange Gardien Paris, their stunning shades of makeup are designed to boost your complexion and thoughtfully formulated with Asian skin tones in mind.
Melding skin-enhancing ingredients and technologies that address common skin-related issues unique to Asian women, Ange Gardien Paris’ all-new range encapsulates the French joie de vivre (joy of living) in their exquisite matte finish lipsticks and lip lacquers, two-in-one cushion foundations, a volumising mascara and a nine-shade eyeshadow palette.
Makeup That Makes A Difference
While each product is designed to bring out the best in your complexion, your skin’s well-being always remains a top priority. Even as your look gets refined and your complexion is flawlessly evened out to perfection, you need not worry about dehydration or dullness as Ange Gardien Paris’ products are powered by their proprietary Thriving Three™ Methodology which infuses your skin with essential hydration while providing vital barrier care at the same time.
Made with natural ingredients that are sustainably sourced, the range’s powerful active elements include acacia peptide—a hydrolysed protein peptide that aids moisture delivery, activates natural moisturising factors (NMF) and prevents transepidermal water loss—while adenosine prevents premature-ageing and niacinamide helps to brighten the skin.
“We use only the best natural ingredients to deliver these benefits, so that we empower women to be the best versions of themselves and to feel confident not only on the surface, but also from within,” says Claudia See, Director of Ange Gardien Paris.
#1 FOR YOUR SKIN
Get full coverage—plus a natural glow!—for your complexion.
Hide blemishes and show off flawless skin with Ange Gardien Paris Naturale Glow Cushion Foundation SPF50/PA+++ & HD Pressed Powder Duo ($80). This lightweight yet high-definition cushion foundation duo offers full natural-looking coverage while providing SPF50 sun protection to shield your precious skin against environmental aggressors and harmful UV rays.
For sebum control in Asia’s tropical heat and humid weather, the paraben-free pressed powder conveniently absorbs excess oil while masking large pores and smoothening out uneven texture. Containing niacinamide, adenosine and acacia peptide, your skin is also kept hydrated at the same time.
Available in three shades that suit Asian complexions: Ivory (01), Medium (02) and Medium Beige (03).
#2 FOR YOUR EYES
Brighten up your face when you highlight your peepers.
Be it matte or metallic, your eyes can transform your visage with the right colour combination. Armed with nine versatile shades, Ange Gardien Paris Vitamins Showtime Eye Palette ($78) lets you mix and match the bewitching pigments to find the right dazzling partnership for each skin type—and occasion.
Take your pick from shades of light peaches to medium tones of pinks, while corals and coppers are great as bases, and deeper rubies and browns work perfectly for that sexy smoky eye. Each shade can be worn on its own or layered for an eye-catching effect. Infused with sunflower seed oil, this vitamin-rich formulation also offers antioxidant and skin moisturisation benefits.
Meanwhile, for a dramatic lift-and-curl effect, jazz up your look by creating thicker and fuller lashes with Ange Gardien Paris Here’s Proof Volumising Mascara ($38). Applied with a specially designed wand, the full-bodied brush engages with each lash to coat it from end to end, while the tapered tip lengthens those corner lashes to maximise volume. Its smudge-free and waterproof formula minimises clumping while ensuring long-lasting wear to keep you looking fresh from morning to night.
#3 FOR YOUR LIPS
Nothing spruces up your look like a solid lipstick does.
If there is one thing every woman needs in her makeup arsenal, it is a reliable lippie to dress up your face in an instant. Ange Gardien Paris Velvet Cloud Lipsticks ($42 each) are velvety matte and glide effortlessly on to show off full and luscious lips.
Formulated with hydrolysed acacia seed proteins, this lipstick helps lock in moisture to keep your lips stay hydrated all day. These intense lipsticks also contain a delicate blend of oil that leaves a silky-smooth finish with a striking splash of colour.
Ranging from versatile nudes and rosy pinks to hypnotic reds, choose from six lust-worthy shades for Asian women with warm, cool and neutral skin undertones: Pink Chameleon (85), Deep Nude (87), First Love (89), Rose Quartz (95), French Rose (97) and Hypnotic Red (99).
Much like the lipsticks, the Colour Nurture Lip Lacquers ($39 each) also contain moisture-locking and nourishing properties. Using silk powders, the transfer-resistant matte lip lacquers create a soft and supple look while plumping up the lips.
From pink corals orange-tinged honey pumpkin tones, to sultry reds and plums, choose from six eye-popping shades: Morning Coral (55), Honey Pumpkin (57), Candy Ruby (59), Valentine (61), Mademoiselle (63) and Velvet Siren (65).
