Which ultimate fashion rule do you abide by? Maybe you co-ordinate your bag with your shoes, or you tend to steer clear of mixing prints. Whatever your mantra, my guess is that you’ve also tried and tested the little black dress theory and found a complete wardrobe staple that never goes out of style.
So many women have searched high and wide for the perfect LBD, whether it’s a fancy frock or a more simple black sheath dress similar to that designed by Hubert de Givenchy and worn by Audrey Hepburn in the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Finally I have found my silhouette, a daily dose of luxury that fits me perfectly, accentuating all of my features in the right places, no matter whether I’m looking to match my office attire or paint the town red with friends. My fail-safe glamour is all thanks to the Givenchy Le Make-Up Must-Haves Palette collection.
How does it look?
Do you know that feeling when you slip on your favourite outfit and everything goes well? Well as soon as you un-box this opulent treat, that feeling comes flying back! The gold trim and signature stud oozes glamour, making you the envy of all on the daily commute or that bathroom touch up after a few cocktails.
The dainty design is completely clutch bag friendly. One of my favourite things about this gorgeous must-have is the closing ‘click’, there’s nothing more luxe than the noise of a premium palette closing – it’s completely on par with the popping of champagne, isn’t it?
Simple and elegant, there are four carefully handpicked shades to suit all complexions and skin tones, not to mention every occasion. The beautiful blend of shimmers and satins elevate and radiate your complexion, dazzling everyone and anyone in your presence.
If you‘re looking for specifics, we recommend these shades to play around with to make your eyes pop:
Blue – grey/pink
Green – purple/grey
Brown/Hazel – nude/purple
Nude fits all and will look beautifully elegant alone, however if you’re looking for the ultimate smokey eye, blend the sultry grey from the lash line upwards, adding a slight touch of the nude to diffuse any harsh lines.
Top Tip: Apply the shadows with a damp brush to pick up more pigment.
This Givenchy all-in-one also includes the Teint Couture Long-Wearing Compact Foundation SPF10 powder, a silky skin perfector with a diffusing, transparent effect when applied to the complexion.
Packed with antioxidant Vitamin E and SPF to protect your complexion all day long, it also comes with the cutest puff applicator. This is a much appreciated added bonus to the palette in my eyes, as fresh skin is always needed on the go!
The colours may strike you as bold, but it’s nothing your complexion can’t carry off. The great thing about these shades is the opacity of the finish is made-to-measure by you! Apply lightly to achieve a natural wash of colour or layer with the lip brush included for added vibrancy.
Both shades show you mean business in the most beautiful kind of way. Vamp it up with the red shade or opt for a pretty pink to add a softer, more neutral edge to your look. Personally I like to get artistic and blend the two for a custom-made shade, it all depends on your mood and outfit, of course!
These two shades actually featured in last spring’s immensely popular, limited edition Over Rose Le Prismissime Lip & Cheek palette, so if you missed out on that, this palette is for you!
As well as proving to be beautiful colour for your lips, the gorgeous GIVENCHY Le Prismissime Lip & Cheek shades also doubles up as chic crème blushes, providing 4-6 hours of long-wear lustfulness. Total package, much? Back to the specifics, if you’re looking for some guidance depending on your skin tone, opt for:
Cool tones – Pink
Warm tones – Red
Neutrals – You’re in luck, dabble between the two!
There’s no harm in treating yourself sometimes, is there? This is one Escentual exclusive your makeup bag won’t want to be without.
