Burberry · Blush Make-Up Collection

 

The latest addition to the My Burberry fragrance family is the new Blush version and as the perfect accompaniment, the brand has also released a capsule Blush Make-Up Collection. Shades of pink are one of the most flattering and uplifting colours you can wear along the face, providing a brightness that you just can’t get with other tints and while utterly girly, there’s enough earthy mauve touches here to keep things from spinning into frothy territory. Thank God.

Clarins · Graphik Fall 2017 Make-Up Collection

 

The Fall collections have been steadily rolling out at counters over the last month, and one that caught my attention was this group from Clarins, a brand that is rather underestimated in my opinion.

For the record, the ad campaign (below) pretty much sums up my #beautygoals for the season, including the wrist embellishment.

MAKE UP FOR EVER · AQUA XL Color Paint Eyeshadow

 

Beauty might be my passion, but art was definitely my first love (true fact: even at 2 years old, I could never bring myself to mar a colouring book illustration by colouring outside the lines), so when this awesome case of the entire MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua XL Color Paint Eyeshadow collection arrived, my heart skipped a beat thinking it was a box of artist paint tubes. Then I did a happy dance when I realized that they actually WERE paints, but of the wearable variety — not that you can’t sport the other kind (i.e.: real paints, as I’ve done often enough in the past), but trust me … these are way better.

Dior · Metallics Fall 2017 Collection

 

We may be in the heart of Summer, but that doesn’t mean that the beauty industry is in sync, which accounts for today’s post on Dior’s Metallics Collection for Fall 2017. Drawing inspiration from editorial beauty and the play of light makeup can produce, Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for the brand, has created a collection for the season that’s filled with rich textures, opulent colours, and even a few innovations thrown in for good measure.
