The Featherlights Spring Collection by Kevyn Aucoin Beauty

Kevyn-Aucoin-Featherlights-2016

This spring sees the launch of the Featherlights makeup collection by Kevyn Aucoin Beauty. Geraldo Frazao, the lead makeup artist for Kevyn Aucoin Beauty in London, is a renowned natural talent, especially in blending and contouring. On meeting him, we were inspired to take a close look at the brand.

Geraldo describes himself as an “artist who works with make-up”, with his work having featured in numerous international glossy titles. He was the personal makeup artist for one of the most powerful fashion icons of our time, Isabella Blow. We have featured below some of our favourite products from the Featherlights Collection:

Kevyn-Aucoin-Celestial Skin Liquid LighteningKevyn Aucoin Celestial Skin Liquid Lightening

Celestial Skin Liquid Lightening adds Starlight to its line-up of colours. This vèry lightweight cream and gel hybrid formula can be used to illuminate, or alternatively as a skin treatment primer and foundation developer. Blended with foundation, it achieves an instant radiant looking skin, or if used alone, it creates a wonderfully fresh dewy glow.

Skin care meets the key to complexion perfection in Kevyn Aucoin’s Celestial Skin Liquid Lighting – a gel/lotion hybrid that blends seamlessly to give skin a beautiful, lit-from-within lustre (without any shimmer or glitter)! Infused with anti-oxidant Raspberry Stem Cell Extract and Bearberry Complex, the silicone-free, skin-friendly formula protects against environmental attack to prevent the damage caused by everyday exposure to pollutants and free radicals. The warm, champagne hue makes this flattering for all skin tones and textures, while its long-wear (12hour) formula doesn’t crease or migrate into wrinkles, so you stay looking flawless from dawn until dusk. Sexy, subtle and sophisticated – think Cate Blanchett as Galadriel in Lord of the Rings. After all, who doesn’t want to resemble an Elvish queen (sans spiky ears)?

 

Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder LightKevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder Light

Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder DeepKevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder Deep

The Sculpting Powder in the new shades of Light and Deep has been launched to add an even broader choice of colours to its spectrum of skin tones. This product is key to achieve a sculpted, well-contoured face.

If you long for razor sharp cheekbones but yours are a bit on the blunt side, Kevyn Aucoin’s The Sculpting Powder is all you need to fake a Kate Moss worthy pair. With a unique combination of pigments, this matte powder creates the illusion of shadows without looking chalky (or orange!). Just choose from three shades; Light, Medium or Deep depending on your skin tone (and the preferred intensity of the effect).

 

Kevyn Aucoin Guardian AngelKevyn Aucoin Guardian Angel

The ultimate way to grant skin an ethereal gleam, this stunning silvery-toned crème-to-powder highlighter lends light to cheekbones, collar bones, or anywhere deserving of attention. Perfect for subtly ‘strobing’, this applies and blends seamlessly – just blur with fingertips to achieve an angelic glow.

The Guardian Angel highlighter compact is a must-have to easily create the strobing makeup look for spring ‘16. With its ultra-creamy texture and lightweight formula, it creates a subtle shimmer, while miraculously blurring lines, creases and imperfections.

 

Kevyn Aucoin Lip Gloss StarlightKevyn Aucoin Lip Gloss Starlight

 

Kevyn Aucoin Lip Gloss in CandlelightKevyn Aucoin Lip Gloss Candlelight

Inspired by the best-loved ‘Celestial’ powders, these sheer lip lustres create the illusion of enhanced lip fullness thanks to miniscule, pearlescent particles and a glossy (but non-sticky) finish. Incredible when worn alone, these can be layered over lip colour to create a beautiful, ‘plumped’ effect.

The Lip Gloss collection has had two additions to their colour line-up – the warm tones of Starlight and Candlelight. With their patented applicator that mimics the look and feel of a makeup artist’s pinkie finger, these rich but lightweight glosses are formulated with vitamins to ensure lips are protected and well moisturised against the summer sun.

clatins-poudre-soleil-visage-openClarins Poudre Soleil Visage

The Clarins Poudre Soleil Visage is the star of the release for me, I was instantly attracted to the lovely, sturdy compact that houses a few shades of bronzer meant to be worn individually or together to help give you that summer glow. There are four shades in the pan, a light coppery beige and a warmer one along with a shimmery cool toned bronze and a soft peach shade in the middle.

The powder is very finely milled with a soft pigmentation allowing you to deposit a touch of color and build intensity gradually, the powder is very smooth and glides onto the skin making it easy to blend and sheer out. The shade is a fabulous soft peach that complements skin beautifully.

Christian Louboutin Launches Neo-Reds

Christian-Louboutin-Red-Nail-Polishes-Spring_3860a104850_original

From shoes to nail polishes, Christian Louboutin is painting the town red once again with his trademark. The luxury shoe designer is bringing a new trio name ‘The Neo Reds’ to his range of nail color shades for the new season. One coat is all that is needed for that glossy coat, thanks to the highly pigmented formula.

For a little shine, fans of the designer nail polishes can don a peony red with a subtle sparkle named ‘Jazzy Doll’ after Louboutin’s leather sandals. The ‘Lady Peep’ is a deep raspberry that is named after the popular peep-toe stiletto. Those in favour of a brighter shade of red can try the ‘Edgy Popi’. The preppy and flirty orange-red is the right amount of colour one would need. The polishes are longwearing and chip resistant as well as free of toluene, formaldehyde and DBP.

Christian-Louboutin-Neo-Red-nail-polish-trio-bottles-swatches

Christian Louboutin first broke into the beauty industry in 2014 with a nail polish collection, but cemented his influence on the market last September when he released a lipstick line that riffed on his iconic red shade. The line’s star piece, ‘The Rouge Louboutin’ lipstick, packaged in luxurious black, silver and gold casing, was accompanied by a further 35 hues, packaged in gold casing and priced at $90.

Louboutin’s The Jazzy Doll, Lady Peep and EdgyPopi shades, will be available from June in selected stores and on Christian Louboutin’s website for $50.

Dolce & Gabbana Goes Sultry with ‘Summer in Italy’ Makeup

Dolce-Gabbana-Summer-Italy-Makeup-Campaign-2016

The newest release from Dolce & Gabbana is the perfect example of a summer collection. And while I probably won’t rush out to buy that yellow cream eye shadow, mostly because I already own some. But it just puts you in the mood for summer, and yes, somewhere in Italy (which I probably will do, can’t wait!). But that bronzer! And those orange lipstick, blush and nail polish, too.

Live the vivacious atmosphere of Italian summers with the new make up collection. Playful and sunny colors for the face, lips, eyes and nails

Dolce & Gabbana

Top model Vittoria Ceretti heats up Dolce & Gabbana’s new makeup campaign for its ‘Summer in Italy’ 2016 collection. The brunette stunner wears a turquoise eyeshadow with a glossy pink-orange lip color. Vittoria models the sultry makeup look with a crop top featuring a lemon print for a Mediterranean look.

The Dolce & Gabbana Makeup Summer in Italy 2016 Collection brings the vivacious vibes of Italian summers to life in this joyful range.

Dolce & Gabbana ‘Summer in Italy Sunshine’ Sicilian Bronzer (Limited Edition)

The star of the collection with a gorgeous pattern on top, the traditional Sicilian carretto – a handcrafted cart decorated with ornate, colourful paintings. Smooth powder delivers sun-kissed warmth and a natural glow, contains golden pearl for a subtle shimmer, adding a glistening radiance to the complexion.

Dolce & Gabbana Shimmer Powder

  • Duo Creamy Powder Cheeks and Eyes Star Shine 5

Shimmer Powder in Star Shine is an oyster cream to powder highlight with very finely milled gold shimmer. It sets on the skin and can be used on cheek and brow bones or on the eyes. I like it as an eye shadow, all over the lid or as a pop of shimmer in the centre.

Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Mono Matte Cream Eye Color

  • Perfect Mono Eyeshadow Indaco 110
  • Perfect Mono Eyeshadow Turquoise 113
  • Perfect Mono Eyeshadow Lemon 116

The Perfect Mono Cream Eye Colour in Indaco is an absolute stunner and the formula is so good I’d love it in a tonne of everyday colours. This is mega pigmented (a theme that runs across this collection) in cream to powder – which sets on the eye – and a little goes a long way. It can absolutely be sheered out, but looks best when it packs a punch. I’d call it a petrol blue, which looks dark teal when smudged or smoked out.

From Lancôme with love

Lancôme Spring Collection 5 copy

With their Spring 2016 makeup collection, From Lancôme With Love the brand is definitely aiming at the younger audience with the playful illustrations, tins the products come in and pastel shades. The promo image with blue and pink shades makes me smile and think of a beautiful spring ahead of us. It looks romantic and carefree, if you ask me. And we all need that…

One look at the new Lancôme Spring 2016 Collection, I couldn’t agree more that it is the essence of pastels. I would describe the collection as girlish yet sophisticated, soft, feminine and demure. Such a beautiful collection that will mesmerize anyone who sets eyes on it. There are 3 main products in this collection, My Parisian Pastels,  My Parisian Blush (LE) and Poetically Pretty Eyes Hypnose Palette (LE).

Lancôme Poetically Pretty Eyes Hypnose Palette,

Inspired by the famous Rubik’s Cube, this smart yet glamorous palette contains 9 shimmer pastels and luminous cubes for custom combination which can be used on the face or on the eyes. This 9 cubes of pastels goodness is a an overall palette. You can use it for your eyes, your whole face as powder, cheeks as highlighters and contouring. Yes you heard me right, contouring. I thought the brown shade is too shimmery but it blended so well and it really does work as contouring and bronzing. The 9 iridescent pastel cubes totally caught me by surprise, I would never thought to love pastel shades so much, but this one is a must have for the spring season! The 9 shades is divided into 3 corrective shades, 3 blush tones and 3 illuminating pastels. And the packaging, gosh don’t even get me started. The tin packaging that looks like a box of crayon is customized by the collection signature illustration.

There are two beautiful shades available in this collection, Corail de Ville (fruity orange) and Rose Haussmann (bluish pink). These blushes has play-doh like texture because of the creamy texture. When I pressed the blush, I can feel the smooth texture and how buttery it is. It glides smoothly on the cheeks and it does gives the perfect glow. Totally gorgeous!
