|GLOW BRONZING POWDER|
When worn, lace conjours up mystery, sensuality and delicacy mixed with drama.Taking this fashion inspiration, Dolce&Gabbana have developed alongside their creative advisor, Pat McGrath an intense collection that reveals much the same emotions in their Lace Collection. Each product is boxed with a shiny lace pattern imprint to give an air of feminine luxury. Here are three my favourites.
For come hither eyes one of the stars is their new Intenseyes Black Intensity Mascara. You may well ask how exciting can a black mascara be? But this one gets my heart beating. As a mascara junkie, I can confirm that the ultramarine pigments that help max out the density of colour give lash-tastic results. Coal black, lashes really do come alive and the all important brush separates colour so each lash is evenly coated as well seemingly stretch them out. And every girl knows length counts when talking lashes! The precision of the brush allows you to build colour too without the fear of clogging. It’s Smudge-proof too which stands the test of time in hot and humid weather.
Have you ever seen such a beautiful looking bronzer (above)? With its lace imprint, the Glow Bronzing Powder comes in a velveteen pouch complete with brush. A mix of gold flex and bronze delicately dusts the skin. Gives skin an iridescent glow. Just gorgeous.
|TOOLS OF THE MAKE-UP TRADE|
Lastly, as any make-up artist worth her translucent powder knows, brushes are her tools of the trade. The mini brush collection is encased is a lace zipped purse which could almost double up as an evening clutch. Once opened there are four brushes to perfect your look from cheeks to lips. As you would expect, brushes are of good quality – I especially like the lip brush as it doesn’t overly splay risking a messy lip. Bellissimo!
