Summer beauty buys from Estee Lauder, L’Oreal and Sephora
A change of seasons can only mean three things – a love affair with indoor air conditioning, a new wardrobe, and a new beauty kit. Since the first two are the most obvious, people forget about the third one, which often results in bad skin and bad makeup.
Pale and pasty is out, exotic bronze goddess is in. Estee Lauder’s latest makeup collection pays tribute to this look with the brand’s best-selling products in a range of limited edition shades. Using gold-bronze dual-colour ShadowSticks, an earth-toned eyeshadow palette and coral, plum and sunburst lip gloss, the Bronze Goddess collection has created the perfect toasted look for Summer.
For nighttime, there’s more emphasis on the eyes and less on the rest of the face. L’Oreal’s Lash Architect 4D helps transform your eyes into magnetic windows to your soul by providing volume, length, texture and curve – the four dimensions of an enchanting set of eyelashes.
And finally, Summer is the time to double-up on your moisturising routine. Dubai’s unbearable heat can make your skin beg for some moisture, and while there’s spa treatments to take care of that, sometimes you just don’t have the time.
Beat the rush with Sephora’s Instant Moisture Mask, a 15-second beauty recipe that’s convenient when you need a quick freshening up at work. The brand’s moisture-packed bronzing lotion can also help you even out the toasted makeup to the rest of your body for a complete Summertime glow.
