Cosmetic companies, including Guerlain and NYX, are looking to intimates for inspiration, too. “The idea is that the makeup is designed to move seamlessly with the face similar to how traditional lingerie is designed to accentuate the body’s shape,” says Orlando Santiago, a makeup artist and US education executive at Guerlain.
“It’s breathable and the finish is always going to look and feel like the skin’s natural texture.”

Inspired by the luxurious fabrics used for women’s undergarments, skin and hair care brands are using delicately designed formulas to shape and smooth. Plus, similar to silky slips and lace teddies, these products never feel heavy or clingy.
