A Rose Romance
BATD ON May 12, 2009 AT 10:01 am
Calling all girly girls! This summer is our season. The high street is awash with ditsy, floral feminine prints, and the beauty counters are brimming with cutesy cotton candy pastels shades. For us, nothing sums up the quintessential British summer more than the rose, and we’re not alone. An absolute beauty classic, it’s no surprise that MAC has drawn inspiration from this delicate flower favourite.
A Rose Romance is a tribute to everything feminine - new romantics pay attention, I have a feeling you’ll want to snap up the whole range. Beautifully soft pinks are neatly blended with subtle lilacs, to produce an uber lady like collection. The delicate cupcake colours will work perfectly with any skin tones leaving you looking fresh faced and peachy keen this season.
Lipstick lovers will be utterly charmed by the Way To Love and A Rose Romance. Sweep over lips for a sheer hit of pastel pink, while eyes are lit with a little help from ‘Et Tu Bouquet?’ a sweet pale pink shadow with sprinkling of gold. The eye popping pigment in Mutiny is the perfect pearlescent powder blue shade that works best when teamed with a killer tan. Natural beauties will be firm fans of the candy floss Virgin Kiss Lipglass and the Blush of Youth powder will add a soft glow to cheeks.
Our top tip is to keep ‘Just A Pinch Gel‘ in your bag for on the go application. Dab onto the apples of your cheeks for a flushed rosy glow. Finally, we’re all well aware of the beauty benefits attached to rose water, so this summer we’ll have our Fix+Rose on standby, perfect for a quick refreshing spritz.
The collection will be available from May onwards and prices start at £7.83
