BOSS Nuit Pour Femme Fragrance Ambassador Gwyneth Paltrow Sharing Her Preferred Look This Christmas

 

Woof! Christmas is just around the corner and have you decided what’s your preferred look for this Christmas? For me, I want to look great and smell great too. To complement my little black dress, I have chosen BOSS Nuit Pour Femme as the scent for the Christmas night and complete the perfect look with smokey eyes and neutral lip color! BOSS Nuit Pour Femme fragrance is my perfect choice as it makes me feel sophisticated and feminine at the same time.

BOSS Nuit Pour Femme, launched in 2000, is the sophisticated new fragrance for women from BOSS Fragrances and have epitomized the BOSS Black Womenswear Collections. The alluring and feminine scent is inspired by the iconic symbol of feminine style – the little black dress and the confident reassurance it gives for women. BOSS Fragrances celebrates its distinct femininity by unlocking the codes of female success. For the BOSS Black woman, success means striking the perfect balance in every aspect of her demanding yet incredibly fulfilling life. It reinforces this duality of strength and sensuality, delivering an empowering boost that helps her to feel at her best – feminine and confident.

No-one encapsulates these characteristics more perfectly than newly signed ambassador for BOSS Nuit Pour Femme, Gwyneth Paltrow. As an Oscar-winning actress, celebrated lifestyle and fashion icon, cookbook author, entrepreneur, wife and mother, she is the epitome of today’s hard-working, multi-faceted modern woman. Confident, self-assured and supremely successful, her flawless style, charisma and sophisticated femininity make her the natural embodiment of BOSS Nuit Pour Femme.

Gwyneth Paltrow has also shared her preferred look for Christmas too :

What’s your go-to Christmas outfit if you’re going out to a party?
I always feel like I end up wearing something black. I have a number of black jumpsuits that are always very easy because then you don’t have to think about much else.

During the event, Larry demonstrated the techniques to achieve a perfect flawless skin, hide the skin imperfection and achieve a V-shape face with 6 basic products including primer, foundation, highlighter, concealer, powder and contouring product.

Product 1. Smoothing out skin texture with a PRIMER, such as the above Urban Decay Pore Perfecting Primer Potion (centre). Applying primer before foundation may ease the application of foundation, even out skin redness, allow the foundation to stay longer under humid weather, prevent skin from absorbing talc and pigment from the foundation and prevent talc from drawing oil from the skin.
