I’m a sucker for a rosy pink, I’m a sucker for gold and I’m a sucker for glowing skin. So I was never really going to be disappointed with the new Bobbi Brown Nude Glow Collection for 2014. The range features three sections entitled Crystal, Nude, and Bronze, each title reflecting the colours selected.
The AW13 catwalks were peppered with glowing cheekbones, blushed lips and pearlescent eyelids alike. Marchesa AW13 opted for lightly bronzed eyelids, contoured cheekbones and blushed-brown lips. Use the Bronze Eye Palette (£35.00), sweeping the lighter colour across the eyelid and just beneath the eyebrow and lining the upper lash line with the darker shade. Line lips and blend inwards before applying the Sheer Lip Colour in Pink Rose (£19.00), et voila!

The look at Diane Von Furstenbery AW13 was centred around the statement lip. Layer up the Sheer Lip Color in Pink Flush (£19.00) to up the intensity of the pigment. An effort was made to highlight cheekbones without colour clashing a blusher with the bright lip shade. The Brightening Finishing Powder in Porcelain Pearl (£40.00) instantly brightens the complexion without adding any visible colour.
The cat-eye flick has come to acquire a classic sophistication in its recurrence in beauty trends for the past few years. Whether it is bold, sleek or smudged, it has stood the test of time. The makeup artists at the Zoe Jordan AW13 show used it to full effect against a rose-blushed palette assigned to the complexion and lips. Once you’ve achieved your perfect cattish flick, use the darker sections of the Brightening Finishing Powder in Brightening Nudes (£40.00) to sweep across your cheekbone, using a smaller blush brush to select the lighter pearl shade of the palette and apply to the top of the cheekbones and the inner and outer corners of the eyes. For a final English rose flourish, apply a glossed lip balm to lips before using finger tips to dap on the Sheer Lip Color in Pink Rose (£19.00) as a stain.
