With the sultry summer nights in full swing, I am wearing makeup that reflects the season. Bronzer to match the setting sun, sparkling shadow along with lips and nails slightly kissed with gold. Dolce&Gabbana has a collection called Summer Glow and a few of the products are what I have been wearing this summer and they are summer time gorgeous!
The Dolce&Gabbana Summer Glow Collection was created for a makeup look that is feminine and bold in intense hues. Envisioned by the Designers with feminine florals and the radiant sun in mind, Dolce&Gabbana summer beauty trends are rich with amber and golden tones that shine throughout each product.
The collection highlights:
Glow Bronzing Powder
The base to the Summer Glow look, The Bronzer Duo, holds two different shades of bronzers in one luxurious product to define and perfect the contours of the face. This can be used as two individual products and even blended together to create a third shade to set the foundation and illuminate the face. The Limited Edition Bronzer Duo is offered in Natural Bronze and Deep Bronze shades to achieve the perfect sun-kissed look.
Smooth Eye Color Quad in Ibiza and Tangier
To achieve a perfectly appropriate summer, smoky eye, Dolce&Gabbana has created two new palettes that are inspired by the twilight of the night and reflections of the moonlight on the sea. The new palettes of Ibiza and Tangier hold shades of deep purple and pale green to further intensify the eye’s gaze.
Gloss Fusion Lipstick in Lily, Orchid and Jasmine
The Summer Glow Collection focuses on a brilliant sheen of pink to complete the ultimate summer pout. To achieve this look, Dolce&Gabbana has created three new shades to add to the best-selling Passion Duo collection, which were all named after the flowers that inspired them. When paired with the Precision Lipliner in Soft, these products create a lusciously inspired floral shade that will leave your lips pretty in pink to kiss the summer air away.
Intense Nail Lacquer in Gaia, Maia and Daphne
In traditional Dolce&Gabbana fashion, the Designers looked to their rich Italian heritage for the inspiration when creating the summer nail collection. Comprised of a green, pink and orange shimmer nail lacquer, the shades were inspired by the mythical muses associated with the earth and fresh water. The new shades of Gaia, Maia and Daphne are all warmed with a shiny bronze effect to finish off the earthy inspired shades with a metallic finish.
I am really loving the Ibiza palette. Normally I would shy away from purple and green, but not in the summer when I am self-tanning all the time. My hair is blonder and my eyes are looking greener. This eye palette looks stunning on me. The colors are gorgeous when worn together and they are not as bold as I thought. I use the creamy gold shade on my brow bone and then the light green shade on my lid. I use the purple shade on the outer part of my lid and then the dark green shade as a contour and then as my liner. Trust me, the look is gorgeous and glam.
