GIORGIO ARMANI ‘SUMMER HEAT’ COLLECTION
For the summer collection 2011, Giorgio Armani dresses the face with luminous, sun soaked desert shades that layer and blend infinitely from the softest evanescent color veil to an intense sheer color vibrancy.
CHANEL LES FLEURS d’ETE COLLECTION
Thoughts: Most beauty brands seem to love blue eyes from Summer…I love the look by Laura Mercier using items from the Portofino collection. It seems a more wearable ‘blue look’ than the other brands. But Guerlain’s blue eyes is very mesmerising…although it could be the model who is very mesmerising…The other trend spotted for Summer 2011 is a sun-kissed look. Mainly warm neutral shades were used on the eyes and a bronzer for cheeks. I love the look created by Dick Page for Shiseido’s summer 2011…that promotional picture is so striking!!! Am also loving Dior’s pop of orange paired with neutral eyes!! Chanel’s sun-kissed looks involved bronzers (in your choice of coral or pink) paired with green eyes is so pretty!
Which are your favourite looks here? The summer blues or sun-kissed looks??
