Two of my favourite things are autumn and beauty, with this latest find a blend of both. Launching in August is the Clarins Autumn Make-Up Collection.
Comprising soft beige, fresh pink, smoky purples and carbon black, the collection perfectly captures autumn colours. Shades which will take you from daytime to evening, the selection includes; Limited Edition Pretty Day 5-Colour Eyeshadow Palette, Ombre Matte Eyeshadow in Carbon and Heather, Eyebrow Pencil in Soft Blonde, Light Brown and Dark Brown, Crayon Kohl in Carbon Black and True Violet and Rouge Eclat in Tawny Rose and Red Paprika.
The stunning limited edition five shade Eyeshadow Palette is made up of a mixture of shimmering colours. Beige, pink and taupe are offset against neutral nude and warm brown. Worn as a subtle look for daytime, they can be blended and layered for a bolder evening effect. Also on the eyeshadow front are the fabulous new Ombre Matte shades on Carbon and Heather. Exclusive cream-to-powder formulas, a bamboo powder component creates matte and even colour. Long-lasting, the shadows are easy to apply, leaving a silky, lightweight look.
Shaping the face, the brand new Eyebrow Pencil outlines the brow and creates a smooth yet defined brow. A new formula, colour is even more long-lasting, allowing for a strong and streamlined look. Complemented by the Crayon Kohl, choose Carbon Black or True Violet and contour with its double-ended pencil. One end pencil and one end natural hair brush, you can blend and define whilst adding an autumn pop to proceedings.
Finally, there are two new Rouge Eclat lipstick tones; Tawny Rose and Red Paprika. The Nutri-Youth Complex protects your pout against dehydration, enhancing collagen to plump, whilst Vitamin E shields from free radicals. The stunning lippy shades are the epitome of autumn days, providing longed-for seasonal warmth.
Standout favourites so far are the Ombre Matte Heather, Tawny Rose Rouge Eclat and Crayon Kohl in True Violet. A mixture of must-have shades, this Clarins collection will see you through autumn and beyond. I for one can’t wait to explore further, with the shimmering and smoky shades symbolising those gorgeous seasonal colours.
