Estee Lauder does a Bronze collection every Summer. I’m not going to bore you with news on summer releases so early in the year because you would only expect them on the shelves earliest in May 2010. No point telling you about something now only to have you forget it in May right? 😉
Anyway, the reason you are reading about the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddeess collection is because I was a little taken aback when I looked at the promotional picture I received in an email. Did anything untoward catch your eye?
Well, it caught mine.
The eye makeup.
I love the teal colour of the new Liquid Eyeshadow in Aqua Flash (US$17.50). But do you notice that it isn’t blended much? Look a little closer below.
It seems to break every cardinal rule in eye makeup i.e. blend your makeup to prevent harsh lines. Teal is not an easy colour to work with on the eyes and personally, I felt that the colour unblended, looks a bit harsh on the model and on very tanned skin. Blended, it would look amazing.
The Exotic Bronzing Blush ($35) looks good though. As befitting the year of the Tiger, it comes striped with bronze and pink – I’d like to check this one out 🙂
So, what d’ya think about the teal on the eyes. Did you find it too harsh or did you think it looked great as is? 🙂 You can see the rest of the collection online.
