Guerlain · Lingerie de Peau Aqua Nude & Cushion Foundations

 

Several weeks ago I was invited to a “back to school” Guerlain media preview to discover several of the brand’s upcoming releases, and today’s post focuses on the newly launched foundations from the Lingerie de Peau lineup, Aqua Nude and Cushion. Both come in formulas that I personally prefer, I might add — but a hunch tells me that they’ll be finding favour with many others as well. Let’s just say that class was NEVER more fun!

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.

CHANEL · Travel Diary Fall/Winter 2017 Collection

 

For me, there’s few things that are able to take the sting out of Summer ending — one of them being the arrival of CHANEL’s Fall 2017 collection. Taking cues from a California road trip, CHANEL Global Makeup and Colour Designer Lucia Pica created Travel Diary. Inspired by the play of lights & colours on the landscape from earliest dawn to nightfall, as well as the vista from the coastline all the way to gritty downtown LA, these hues capture those fleeting photographic moments … in makeup form, naturally.

CHANEL · Les Beiges de CHANEL 2017

 

CHANEL has recently added to the Les Beiges lineup with new foundations, blush shades, and finally … an eyeshadow palette. The premise behind this range is all about that ‘bonne mine/healthy glow’ effect that doesn’t involve an armada of products to achieve, thereby living up to Coco Chanel’s beliefs of liberating women from anything confining. Personally, with Summer’s heat (and humidity) upon us, I’m all about easy-peasy makeup that will not only look good but require the least amount of effort on my part to get there. Because I can be lazy like that (but still a little vain, if I’m being honest).

Urban Decay · The Naked Heat Collection

 

Urban Decay can be credited as the brand who made Naked part of every beauty lover’s vocabulary and with the upcoming launch of the Naked Heat Collection, things are about to get positively steamy (this collection is making it almost too easy to come up with titillating metaphors). Drawing on the latest colour trends, these hues may be inspired by rising temps, but can definitely be worn year-round with ease. Personally, I have not been able to stop reaching for this collection since the day it arrived … and I don’t intend to stop anytime soon, either.
