Burberry is bringing a touch of Christmas spirit to its beauty products this Holiday 2014 — they included a red nail varnish and Gold Glow powder make-up set, a Crocus candle to fill the air with an ultra-chic scent and a variation of the house’s My Burberry fragrance tied with a festive red bow.
Developed by Burberry Make-up Artistic Consultant Wendy Rowe, under the creative direction of Chief Creative and Chief Executive Officer, Christopher Bailey, the campaign look features naturally illuminated skin with golden highlights, gold enhanced eyes and lips and nails in festive red hues.
"This make-up look was all about celebrating the spirit of the festive season, and the overall mood and attitude of the campaign," Wendy revealed.
Here, Wendy reveals how to recreate the look at home.
“To create the signature Burberry Glow, I used Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base in Nude Radiance: my absolute make-up must-have for any look, and added Fresh Glow Foundation to create flawless coverage and to even out the skin tone," said Wendy.
“To mirror the glow of the face we also used Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base in Nude Radiance on the body and décolletage.”
1. Apply Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base in Nude Radiance No.01 to the face to illuminate the skin. Begin application at the centre of the face, blending outwards. Blend well around the jawline to give a natural finish.
2. Highlight the forehead, nose, Cupid’s bow and chin with Sheer Concealer.
3. Use rose-toned shades under the eyes to diminish dark circles and even the complexion. To ensure the look remains natural, avoid applying concealer too close to the lash line.
