Splendours Summer Make-up Collection 2013 ModelR

Clarins Splendours Summer Make-up: Loving the Bronze Goddess Trend!!

Hey lovelies!

Summer really is just around the corner!! I LOVE Summer! Summer is FABULOUS! It means renewing your wardrobe with bright colour & fun pieces, it means buying a new bikini (OK that one isn’t the most enjoyable of experience but still…), the smell of sun cream and cocktails!

And it also means, BRAND NEW make-up! Searching for inspiration, I was let in on a glamorous secret ūüėČ – Clarin’s NEW Summer Splendours Collection and was pleased to find that BRONZE is back baby!!

I cannot wait to get my hands on their body oil, bronzer and eye shadows!

Here’s a pre-view of my favorite items and my tips on how to use them. Glowing sun-kissed goddess effect GUARANTEED!

Sunshine into Gold
Travel to faraway lands, to the heart of an ancient people…and discover the splendours of a pre-Columbian civilization that worshiped the sun.
Gold, a rich cultural symbol, is the highlight of this summer make-up collection.
Sprinkle it on the eyes, neck and lips. Jade, sapphire, ruby and tourmaline appear
as crystalline gemstones and illuminate this elegant sun-kissed collection.

Glam Crush Tips:

Use the Eye Palette to create mesmerizing eyes! The lighter shades are just perfect for a glowy day-time look and the darker ones for a more smokey-looking dramatic version. Make sure to coat your lashes with a waterproof, heat-resistant mascara (2 coats)! (my personal fav: Diorshow Black Out)

I absolutely adore the¬†moisturizing¬† yummy smelling Shimmer Body Oil (this one’s actually very¬†subtle) which you can apply on your arms,¬†decollete¬†& shoulders for an extra glow and on your legs to make them look thinner (apply the¬†shimmering¬†oil along the shin bone.

The Bronzing Powder will warm your skin nicely and make it look radiant! Use a large brush to mix all the shades & blend over your face for an instant sun-kissed effect OR with a smaller brush, apply the gold colour to highlight your cheek bones & eyes!

I’ve recently met a lovely make-up artist and so will be working with her on a few tutorials. Let me know what you Glam Gals would like to know!! I’m thinking smokey eye, contouring, eyeliner, red lip etc…

Until next time…
