Clarins’ Sun-kissed Summer 2018 Makeup Collection
French beauty brand Clarins is taking inspiration from Miami’s South Beach district this season with a carefully edited summer makeup collection called “Sun-kissed”. With Florida palm tree prints and sun-washed hues of fresh, bright colours, these are the essentials for summer evenings and carefree vacations. You can dress up the colours for evening. Or you can wear as neutrals by the pool. Here are the star products:
Sun-kissed Bronzing Compact
This maxi-size compact is adorned with pink flamingos and palm trees. Inside, you’ll find a harmony of three shades that work on most skin tones. With a large brush, sweep lightly all over the face for a natural healthy glow. Then, apply on the areas of the face where the sun naturally touches: cheeks, nose, chin, etc. You’ll get a sun-kissed effect in seconds. What makes this bronzer unique is the anti-pollution complex within the formula. Extracts of white tea and nipplewort help protect against free radicals and pollution.
4-Colour Summer Makeup Pen
Remember the bic pens of the 1970s where you could pull down on a button in the cap to reveal different shades of ink? Well Clarins has reimagined the concept for makeup creating an all-in-one beauty pen for eyes and lips. The star eyeliner shade is a gorgeous shade of turquoise that gives the perfect pop of colour at the eye. There is also an intense plum and black liner. And a bright pink lip liner to define lips and prevent lipstick from bleeding. You can even use it on the eye contour. I love that it is so easy to pop into an overnight bag. It has all the essentials you need.
Clarins is adding a pair of SOS Primer shades to gently warm the complexion. Choose from bronze or mocha and instantly illuminate and correction and flaws thanks to High Lumitech Complex and correcting pigments. It helps makeup hold up during hot, humid weather.
Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil in Blackberry
Clarins lip oils have been a global smash thanks to the skin-nourishing ingredients and wash of colour. This season sees the debut of a delectable plum shade with the aroma of fresh blackcurrant. It’s the hazelnut, organic jojoba and acai oils that protect lips.
