Clarins is welcoming the warmer weather with a sumptuous bronzing collection for summer 2017. We got a sneak peek at the direction for this collection on the Spring 17 Mugler runway during Paris Fashion Week. Clarins, which creates the makeup looks for Mugler’s catwalk shows, tried out a warm orange eyeshadow and matte bronzing powder on models. It was a beautiful look and the famed French beauty brand incorporated them into limited edition makeup products that will flatter almost every skin tone.
Bronzing & Blush Compact
The star product is the Bronzing and Blush Compact. It creates a made-to-measure, sun-kissed look with three matte bronze shades to warm the complexion. An orange blush gives a healthy glow in seconds. But what I think makes this bronzer stand out is the Light Optimizing Complex. Soft-focus pigments combined with pearls optically minimize fine lines and imperfections for a radiant complexion. The powder is embossed with a palm leaf print. Beautifully done.
4-Colour Eyeshadow Palette
This is one of my favourite eye palettes of the season. Not only are you getting warm sand tones but a pop of orange. You’ll notice the orange has a brown undertone making it infinitely easier to wear. Each shadow is composed of 100% mineral and vegetal pigments.
Summer Eye Pencils
Give your makeup look a summery vibe with an accent of gold or copper. Both pencils offer a creamy, ultra-smooth tip that can be used along the lash line or inside the lower lid as a khol. They contain skin-nourishing botanical ingredients.

Clarins summer look arrives on counters this month. But if you like any of these items, be sure to be quick. I expect this collection will sell out quickly. It’s pretty great.
