Get The Look: Burberry Beauty Autumn/Winter 2012

By 02:34 ,

This is my first time experiencing Burberry Beauty. Despite passing the counter at Isetan KLCC countless number of times I never seem to make a stop until yesterday. Okay so I didn’t really make a stop, I was invited for a one-on-one makeup session with Burberry Beauty’s make up artist, Adrian to check out Burberry Beauty Autumn/Winter 2012 colours.

Autumn/Winter 2012 reflects the mood of Burberry Prorsum Autumn/Winter 2012 runway collection. Effortless elegance. The new shades are inspired by the English countryside. Just as I thought, the smudgey style eyes are just classically British.

This season is all about effortless smoky with rich velvety brown shades. The complexion is flawlessly matte with a soft focus velvet finish with gently contoured cheeks and natural dusky lips.

Liking the intensity to these glosses

The look starts of with a luminous base, Fresh Glow for a radiant youthful canvas. Then the new Velvet Foundation to achieve the soft velvety finish. Adrian chose shade 205 for my skin tone. He then finished off by lightly dusting Sheer Powder.

Now for the eyes. Apply Fresh Glow can onto the lids as a base. Smudge brown Eye Definer in Midnight Brown No. 02  onto the lids to get a more intense colour for the eye shadows. Next sweep Sheer Eyeshadow in Dark Sable No.23 onto the smudged eye definer. Then blend Mulberry No.23 into the crease to intensify the look. Light sweep Porcelain White No.25 onto the brow bone to highlight. Line upper and lower lashes with Midnight Brown. Lock in the colour on the lower lash line by applying Mulberry into the eye definer. The apply Effortless Macara in Midnight Black No.1. The reason why brown eye definer was use is to achieve a softer look compared to a black one.

For the cheeks sweep on an Earthy Blush. This is used more to contour than to get colour. Plus is doesn’t take attention away from the eyes.

On lips, I opted for Lip Cover in Sepia Pink No.32 instead of Mocha Glow No.31 which I found very curios. Mocha Brown is a completely brown shade. I suppose mixing it with Sepia think would have worked but on its own hmm.. that's a tough one. Add some gold gloss for a beautiful pout.

To finish off the look Adrian used Porcelain White No.25 to highlight my cheeks in a triangular motion then my nose bridge to draw attention to the centre of the face. Et voila, the Autumn/Winter 2012 look.

Let me just introduce to you guys a bit more about the new Burberry Beauty Velvet Foundation, a new addition to the Burberry Skin collection. It is long lasting with a matte, soft velvety finish. It offers medium coverage as you will notice from my complexion. It contains Wild Rose extract which moisturises and regenerates skin. The formula is also water-resistant. It comes in 8 shades.

The packaging is oh so fancy. It comes in a frosted bottle with a matte lid which reflects the foundation’s formula and finish. The Gunmetal lid features the iconic Burberry design.

Thank you Burberry Beauty Malaysia for having me over! :)

  1. How much is the Burberry Lip Velvet? Do you have any idea? Thanks that I was able to find your blog because I am going to KL this December and would like to purchase Burberry items. Atleast I know have an idea on how much it costs. Looks like the price of the Lip Cover is closer to the price in the U.S which is good.

  2. Hi there! :)
    Looks like you're in time for some Christmas shopping. The price for the Lip Velvet should be the same price as the lip cover which is RM96. But I'm not too sure, this is just an assumption. It shouldn't be too far off though. Hope this helps. Happy shopping! :)
