For this season only, the GIVENCHY Les Saisons collection brings the heat just in time for summer with African Light, a coveted capsule makeup look that emanates radiance. Playing with striking ethnic prints and warm earthy tones, this summer’s makeup collection doesn’t disappoint.
In true couture form, with this Les Saisons summer collection, you can expect to see innovative textures and sophisticated colourways with a strong influence from their couture fashion house. Marrying together the trending concept of glowy skin, vibrant lips and effortless eyes, this versatile selection embodies the warmth of summer and the authenticity of Africa; all embellished with their strict GIVENCHY codes: stars, stripes and studs. Let’s review the GIVENCHY African Light Summer Look…
GIVENCHY Bouncy Highlighter
in 01 – African Light Gold
Almost too pretty to use, the African Light Gold Bouncy Highlighter is the star of the collection. I mean, how impressive is its couture design? Infused with delicate gold glitter and a supple gel-cream texture, once applied, it kisses your skin with a shimmering freshness that reflects light beautifully without leaving a powdery veil or finish.
This awe-inspiring highlighter is packed with skincare benefits too. Coconut milk, macadamia nut oil and natural honey extract all work together to protect and hydrate your skin, whilst fighting off free radicals with their antioxidant powers.
Collectors, to avoid the print disappearing quickly, gently glide your finger over the top of the highlighter, then apply the cream to the highpoints of your face for an instant glow boost.
GIVENCHY Rouge Interdit Vinyl
in 17 – African Copper
From first glance, you may perceive Rouge Interdit Vinyl in African Copper as a classic 90s brown lip, but its shimmering gold flecks and warming undertone have refreshed and re-interpreted that vision to create something really special for all skin tones to enjoy.
Super shiny and packed full of pigment, it’s easy to layer this colour to create a versatile look. Apply one coat for a wash of warm colour, or choose to amp up the application maximise the coverage. Voila, you have a shade that matches every occasion and outfit.
GIVENCHY Rouge Interdit Vinyl
in 18 – African Raspberry
If vibrancy is your thing, the only shade you should be wearing this summer is Rouge Interdit Vinyl in African Raspberry. Gorgeous and glossy, the wildness of this bold fuchsia works so well with a high-shine finish.
Whether you have fair, olive or dark skin, there’s something really endearing and glamorous about this colour and its neutral undertone means that every complexion can wear it well.
GIVENCHY Prisme Blush
in 09 – African Earth
The first limited edition bronzer in the signature Prisme Blush collection, African Earth is perfect for all contour and highlight addicts who want a high-end bronzing palette that does it all. Split into two shades; a sunny glow and earthy defining shade, this portable palette lets you sculpt and illuminate pretty easily.
The sun-coloured powder’s sheen reveals a slightly darker gold-toned glitter that’s less dewy than the Bouncy Highlighter but is still as sparkling. On the other side, the earth-coloured powder blends to become a deep orange-brown hue that subtly shapes and warms the skin.
GIVENCHY Khol Couture Waterproof Retractable Eyeliner
in 08 – African Bronze
Seductive and shimmering yet soft, I love the earthiness of the Khol Couture Eyeliner in African Bronze; its mossy undertone and khaki shimmer light up the eyes like a dream. Completely versatile, its creamy formula means that you can create infinite eye looks by lining, colouring or smoking your lash line. (this also makes it really easy to apply when you only have seconds to spare).
Personally, I think its a beautiful alternative to a signature black eyeliner. If our eyes really are the window to our souls, this shade really amps up their storytelling skills without giving too much away.
