THIS SUMMER IS ALL ABOUT A BOLD BRONZED GLOW

Inspired by the breathtaking summer sunset, Elizabeth Arden introduces the new Sunset Bronze Limited Edition Colour Summer 2016 Collection to capture the multi-coloured warmth, beauty and mystery of dusk and the night to come.
As the sun goes down, the sky is bathed in a remarkable array of bronze, stunning purples, warm pink and orange hues. The lower position of the sun affects the way light reflects on skin, creating a luminous reflection for the perfect seductive, bronzed look. Now you can outlast the sunset with an alluring golden-hour glow any time of day. The new Sunset Bronze Limited Edition Colour Collection features a gorgeous prismatic bronzer and highlighter to illuminate the face, multi-dimensional glosses for the lips and scintillating shades of shadows to enhance the eyes.
“This summer is all about a bold bronzed glow and this universal collection is comprised of colours that compliment and accentuate all skin tones,” says Rebecca Restrepo, Elizabeth Arden Global Makeup Artist. “Use the highlighter to sculpt cheeks and add a sheer, iridescent shine, then warm the face with bronzer, and finish the look with the rose gold shadow, with a hint of purple for an exotic touch.”
The Limited Edition Sunset Bronze Prismatic Bronzing Powder is a silky bronzing powder, diffused with golden shimmer,that imparts skin with a reflective, sun-kissed glow. The compact houses a prismatic combination of bronzing and highlighting shades formulated with skin-perfecting ingredients to help minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It comes complete with a half-moon brush for easy on-the-go application.
Rebecca Recommends: “This bronzer adds warmth while also contouring the shape of the face. To apply, start at the edge of the cheekbone, in line with the bottom of the ear, making short upward strokes, fading to the centre of the face. Then stroke the brush along the hairline to create a contoured halo effect. Finish by applying a subtle veil of shimmer all over the face, ears and neck down to the décolleté.”
The Limited Edition Sunset Bronze Prismatic Eye Shadow Palette is a shimmery eye shadow palette that features five highly pigmented shades to create endless eye looks, from natural to dramatic. The formula’s long-wear polymers provide vibrant lasting colour, while Mica Based Pearls allow the shadows to reflect light off the lids for a multi-dimensional effect.
Rebecca Recommends: “The palette offers great versatility in shade range and use. Use the soft pink as a highlighter on the brow bone or build upon application for a pop of colour; for tan, olive or deeper skin tones use the golden amber shade. Create a soft smoky eye with the neutral taupe-plum by contouring above the crease and the outer edge of your eye, or even apply as eyeliner; for a dramatic smoky eye swap for the rich purple shade.”
The Limited Edition Sunset Bronze Prismatic Lip Gloss is an irresistible trio of conditioning lip glosses that dazzles with high-shine iridescence and nourishes lips with moisture. Packed with lustrous pigments and multidimensional pearls, each gloss is enriched with ultra-hydrating Aloe Vera and Vitamins A, C, and E to soothe and protect lips.
Rebecca Recommends: “These glosses offer subtle sparks of glittery colour. They’re amazing on their own, or to add a hint of shine and volume to lips, apply in the centre of the mouth on top of Beautiful Colour Moisturising Lipstick.”
The Limited Edition Sunset Bronze Prismatic Highlighter is a creamy, luminous stick highlighter that glides effortlessly onto the skin to illuminate cheeks and brow bones. When applied, ultra-fine light-reflecting pearls create a multi-dimensional effect. Added skin-hydrating ingredients like Aloe Vera, Zinc PCA and Vitamin E condition the skin, while ultra-fine powders and spherical micro powders ensure a smooth, silky product application.
Rebecca Recommends: “I love to use this highlighter to create a radiant, modern and sexy face. Apply the highlighter, before blush and bronzer, along the outer edge of the brow moving in a ‘C’ formation along the cheekbones, fading to the centre of the face. Also apply to the centre of the nose starting at eye level, moving down the bridge to right above the tip of the nose.”
The Sunset Bronze Limited Edition Colour Summer 2016 Collection is available at Elizabeth Arden counters in the UAE.
