Clarins’ Spring Look
When it comes to skin-friendly makeup, Clarins is at the top of the list. That is because the French beauty brand takes its impressive skincare expertise and translates it into makeup products that contain skin-soothing botanicals. Clarins’ scientists try to incorporate as many of the botanical actives from the skincare into makeup. So you’ll often find the anti-pollution complex, organic sweet almond and bamboo extract in the brand’s eyeshadows, blushes and powders.
For Spring 2017, the focus is on contouring and sculpting – but using a very neutral palette. Clarins is known for its beiges, browns and rosewood hues – with a little pink thrown in for good measure. International Makeup Artist Eric Antoniotti uses these shades to play with light and shadow bringing out and enhancing your best features.
Face Contouring Palette
You’ll find three universal shades and a specially designed pro brush in this contouring palette. There is a highlighter, a contour shade and a pink blush. And the bristles on the brush are cut specially for easier application.
All-In-One Makeup Pen
This is Spring’s beauty showstopper, a four-colour pen inspired by the Bic pens of the 1970s. Simply slide down the button of the colour you want to use. There are three eye pencils and one lip contour pencil to accentuate the eyes and lips. You can even use it to enhance eyebrows or to draw on freckles. It’s hugely fun!
Ombres Iridescentes Eyeshadows
This powder formula with a creamy, soft feel dresses eyelids in a veil of iridescent shimmer. It’s a beautiful effect.

4-Colour Eyeshadow Palette in Smokey
This palette of four grey/charcoal shadows is enriched with mineral pigments to add drama to the eyes. The formula contains carnauba powder to provide comfort to the eyelids. Use wet or dry.
Joli Rouge Brilliant
What makes these lipsticks special is they contain organic marsh samphire and mango oil to nourish and comfort lips – while providing luminous colour.
