Soft Sweet Peach, Pale Rosy Platinum, and Cool Shimmering Pink make for a #Hero #SummerBeauty Palette from Beauty Giant, Shiseido, that is perfect for every skintone, perfect for fresh summer mornings, hazy summer afternoons... and hot summer nights!! I found that with the Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio compact, I could achieve a subtle pearlescent finish that is professional for work, light enough for the day, but still caught the light as each shadow is pressed with extremely fine shimmer.
Shiseido have created the Sun Sand & Stars Limited Edition Summer'11 Compact, inspired by Sand dunes lit with the colours of the setting sun, creating a sleek elegant impression for dynamic and dramatic eyes.
The Shimmering Pink looks super pretty with the Soft Peach - perfect for a summer wedding or if you want to add a little colour with out going acid bright! The amount of different looks that can be achieved with these three colours is endless, and that's because Shiseido have created a colour palette that really does work well together on so many different levels, and on any skintone. The Pale Rosy Platinum actually has a slightly mink undertone to it - so this can be blended for a summer smoky look... think Roberto Cavalli ss'11; the Soft Sweet Peach is a classic nude shade that can work on any skintone - a wash of this shade is the perfect veil to hide imperfections/wake up tired eyes! It also works great as highlighter too!
Along with the compact is another product that is absolutely brilliant : the Automatic Fine Eyeliner, inspired by the gleaming indigo of the moonlit ocean - giving a deep yet subtle definition to the eyes, in a glossy, deep Night Sky shade (Blue-Black), which retails at £23.00. This beauty works in the same way as the well known touche eclat pen - but more like an actual felt-tip pen that does not release too much liquid. I usually steer well clear of eyeliner during summer, I've never been fond of liquid eyeliner so I always use pencil - which can wear off quickly in the heat (and I don't like wearing it in summer anyway!) or a gel eyeliner that I paint on with a very fine brush. However, Shiseido have just taken all my problems away with this one pen! It is super easy to use and after two clicks the blue black liquid came through and I literally drew on my eyeliner in one quick slick! Here's a pic...
Firstly, I am wearing the Shimmering Pink all over the lid, with a little more well blended in the crease, and the Soft Sweet Peach very lightly in the centre of the eyelid as a professional daytime look. Secondly, I'm wearing the Automatic Fine Eyeliner in Night Sky - one slick was all it took... And Thirdly... I took this pic at the very end of the day, so this lasted pretty damn well considering we are having a spot of hot weather and I'm usually running back and forth flustered, styling shoots and so on! #Hero #SummerBeauty Product ...ermmm YESS!! This is definitely one that will take you through summer, to the beach, and on into Autumn!
The Sun Sand & Stars Compact is £34.00 / Night Sky Automatic Fine Eyeliner is £23.00 available at selected department stores and Shiseido.co.uk.
