Perfect timing to explore what AW14 has in store for us, and this time I’m talking beauty.
My luxury beauty journey goes back to when I was growing up and assisting my mum in her various flashy beauty hauls, whilst sampling the favourite bits prior to my latin-american and ballroom dancing competitions – a perfect ‘starter kit’ for a young beauty-nista!
From Chanel perfumes to Elizabeth Arden skincare, Estee Lauder, Dior, La Prairie (the list goes on…), I’ve always been ‘accidentally’ on-trend.
A little trip down this memory lane ended up with online-window-shopping at Harrods, discovering the latest luxury jewels! I mean, who would have thought that a Swarovski moisturiser from Kiehls is now £5,000?
So what’s really new in the beauty world this season?
…breaks into the beauty market this autumn with the new fashion-forward PB beauty collection, inspired by their eclectic London roots and the love for design and fashion trends.
Less words, more pictures! Here is a little preview of what’s really in store for us.
These gorgeous PB make-up brushes are the new ‘it’ in the beauty blogger + vlogger circle.
Brow Styling Kit and the new Pauls Boutique False Lash collection are the perfect match for both professional make-up artists as well as ordinary girls like us!
It also looks that every single product from the new range comes with full application instructions and a handful of useful tips and tricks, which are all featured as a part of the packaging (including make-up brushes)
This season is all about that eye appeal and elegance. Ombre matte palettes, glowing skin and captivating lip colours, – and this is just a little part of what’s on the ‘Clarins menu’.
These lightweight eyeshadows feature a unique cream-to-powder formula that works as a fine smoothing agent, providing quick application and long-lasting results at the end.
Rouge Eclat lipstick range sees 5 new shade additions this season.
I’m personally obsessed with this lipstick already as it’s smartly designed to protect lips again dehydration and boost collagen (which is especially beneficial) with a featured Mimosa, Jojoba and Sunflower plant elements, which also might explain the luxurious smell.
Featured on the photo: Rouge Eclat Satin Finish Age-Defying Lipstick in Shade 16.
Next on my list – Instant Light Eye Perfecting Base.
Perfect to brighten up the under-eye area or as a perfect base for eyeshadow, this product is definitely handy for all occasions, yet especially ideal to apply on-the-go.
