After its latest catwalk show, where natural beauty took centre stage, Burberry has launched a new campaign highlighting The Essentials, its range of cosmetics to prime, contour and highlight. Burberry Make-Up Artistic Consultant Wendy Rowe describes it as “an edit of must-have products that everyone can use to effortlessly enhance their features”.
Part of The Essentials collection, the Fresh Glow Palette is the go-to option for all the make-up magic you need to create a glowing complexion, sculptured and highlighted features and, that beauty holy grail, the perfect nude lip.
The current collection includes: Fresh Glow Highlighter; Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base; Fresh Glow Highlighting Luminous Pen and Face Contour.
New additions include two new shades of Fresh Glow Highlighter: Pink Pearl and Rose Gold. Fresh Glow Highlighter in buildable, luminous shades is a flattering pearly, translucent powder whose job is to define the features and illuminate the complexion for a gorgeous glow. Basically, it has been designed to create the high-maintenance look of contouring and strobing but with no effort required.
How to use: Sweep the powder over the areas of the face where the light would naturally hit: the cheekbones, bridge of the nose and just under the brow bones.
One new product that we predict will become a best-seller is the all-new Lip Colour Contour. This nude pen is designed to prime, contour and shape to give your lips a natural fuller look. Think of it as your needle-free way to a plumper pout. It achieves this effect by applying a soft shadow to the lip line, creating the illusion of fuller lips. It also does double duty as a primer, smoothing and softening the lips. A dome-shaped tip makes it easy to apply and it can be worn alone or under lip colour.
How to use: There are three different ways to use Lip Colour Contour:
- As a primer: Line the outer edges of your lip with the Lip Colour Contour pen and then fill in. Gently blend along the lip line.
- To contour: Apply the Lip Colour Contour pen along the top and bottom lip lines. Blend well using your fingertip until the product is undetectable.
- To colour: Line the lips first, taking the product slightly outside your natural lip line if you want lips to appear fuller and then apply the product all over the lips to create a natural nude look.
