If you have a family or a friend who is inflicted with Autism, I highly encourage everyone to buy one or two of Lancôme’s latest makeup collection, especially the one they collaborated with the Golden Hat Foundation created by Kate Winslet, who has been a brand Ambassadress for 4 years.
This non-profit foundation aims to better the lives of autistic children by removing or limiting the barriers they face. Its mission is to teach autistic children how to communicate more clearly, as well as offer them education, job training, recreational activities adapted to their disability. Autism is a pathology caused by a neurological development anomaly while the brain is maturing that affects a person’s sensorial and neurological functioning. Today autism affects over 67 million people worldwide. Of all the serious developmental conditions, autism is the one seeing the most significant global growth.
The “Golden Hat Foundation” was created by Kate Winslet after she narrated the Icelandic documentary – “A Mother’s Courage: Talking Back to Autism” (a.k.a. “The Sunshine Boy”) – in which she followed the story of a child with autism. Touched by this boy’s life, she wanted to become more involved and began by developing a book project (to be published in the near futur) which brings together hundreds of self-portrait photographs by celebrities from the art and film world, each wearing the foundation’s symbolic hat. The objective? To raise money. She then went on to set up her own foundation, naming it after the poem “The Golden Hat”, written by Keli Thorsteinsson, the child featured in the documentary.
The “Golden Hat Foundation” collection reinterprets the mythical L’Absolu Rouge lipstick, and includes several nail polishes in all-new shades, as well as a new multi-compact powder. All these products are embossed with the foundation’s logo and the actress’ signature.
