Dolce & Gabbana: "The Essence of Holiday"

Dolce&Gabbana Make Up introduces a limited edition collection: The Essence of Holiday. Inspired by iconic Dolce&Gabbana colours, passionate red, antique gold, and classic black, it allows every woman to create a sophisticated look. Here’s how to recreate it:

Begin by applying a layer of the Primer to the face to create a perfect and radiant canvas for make up application. Follow with the Perfect Luminous Liquid Foundation using the Foundation Brush to seamlessly blend into the neck and hairline for a naturally flawless complexion. Dot a small amount of the Perfect Luminous Concealer under the eyes to cover any dark patches. Dust the face with the Bronzing Powder in Honey Matte 25, focusing on the areas of the face the sun would naturally hit: to the top of the forehead, the cheekbones, and down along the jawline. Follow with a light stroke of the Blush in Delight 35 along the cheekbones to further highlight and accentuate this area. Finish with a hint of the Shimmer Powder in Glow Light 1 along the temples and high points of the cheeks for added radiance. Define and frame the face using the Brow Liner in Soft Brown 1 on the brows.

Achieve perfectly defined eyes by lining the inner lid with the Eyeliner in Black 5 and create a subtle smoky eye by first sweeping the Perfect Mono Eyeshadow in Pearl Dust 25 onto the eyelid. Blend this in with a layer of the Perfect Mono Eyeshadow in Antique Gold 117, starting in the middle of the eyelid and blending towards the outer edge of the eye. For added brightness, lightly apply the Eyeliner in Shimmer 12 to the inner corner of the eyes. Offset the lightness and add depth with the Perfect Mono Eyeshadow in Extreme Black 150. In a sweeping motion, blend the dark shade towards the outer edge of the eyelid to create a winged finish. For feline flicks, line the lids with the Glam Liner in Black Intense 1 and enhance the lashes with several coats of Passioneyes Mascara in Nero 1 for added curl and volume.

For lips and nails, apply the Classic Cream Lipstick in Dora 628 to the lips, and the Nail Lacquer in Dora 627. For an iridescent finish, enhance the colour of the lipstick by applying the Sheer Shine Gloss in Pearl Shine 40 to the centre of the lips.
