BECCA Halcyon Days Makeup Collection for Summer 2011

I already wrote about the Halcyon Days palette and here is finally the official information about BECCA Summer 2011. The promo look is gorgeous as per usual.

“Dance barefoot, wear a flower in your hair and slip off the map for an idyllic moment; discover the Halcyon Days Collection by BECCA.

With just-flushed cheeks in shades of golden coral and pink, lips the colour of sherbet and bronze-gilded eyes lined with chocolate and black for dreamy intensity, Halcyon Days embraces the inner flower child with carefree abandon.”

Nail Colour £12, 15ml

This high-performance enamel coats nails with an immediate glossy shine that has superior lasting-power. The smooth, self-levelling colour brushes evenly onto nails, delivering intense, fast-drying pigment.

  • Tangerine Dream (bright sunset coral)
  • Dancing Barefoot (apricot nude)
  • Summerdaze  (retro pastel pink)

Automatic Eye Pencil, £18

With a high colour pay-off, the intense pigment of these long-wearing, water-proof eye pencils create smudge-proof definition for the eyes. With a built-in sharpener and smudger for fine blending, eyes are easily accentuated.

  • Goa (bronze chocolate)
  • Majorca (intense black)

Halcyon Days  palette,£ 55

Inspired by the spirit of Halcyon Days, BECCA returns to its original, best-selling five-hole palette for eyes, lips and cheeks.

  • Lip Gloss in Mai Tai (sheer peachy nude)
  • Lip & Cheek Crème in Bouganvillea (coral)
  • Eye Colour Powder Shimmer in Faille (golden peach)
  • Eye Colour Powder Demi Matt in Muslin (creamy opal)
  • Eye Colour Powder Demi Matt in Chamois (light bronze)
  • Dual Ended Brush

Mineral Powder Blush, £25

Inspired by the best-selling Mineral Powder Foundation, this talc-free, demi-matte mineral powder for cheeks creates natural yet luminous colour that won’t look chalky or heavy on the skin.

  • Damselfly (peach with golden highlights)
  • Flowerchild (true coral)

Mineral Bronzer & Illuminator Duo, £34

This lightweight bronzing and illuminating duo sculpts and defines features with sun-kissed warmth, whilst imparting flaw-minimising radiance to the complexion.

  • Serrana(matte bronze/soft pink shimmer)

Beach Tint, £20

Beautifully blendable crème stain for cheeks and lips that suits all skin types. Kiss-proof and water-resistant, it dries to a perfect, streak-free, non-greasy, non-drying finish. Deliciously scented in Guava.

  • Guava  (fresh coral pink)

And here is how you create the beautiful look from the promo image!

EYES

Apply Baroque Eye Tint as a base all over the eyelid and underneath. Subtly wash Faille Eye Colour Powder all over the eye, extending colour to just below the brow bone. Blend Chamois Eye Colour Powder into the socket, gently contouring and fading in toward the inner eye and deepening the colour near the outer edges. Add a touch of Muslin Eye Colour Powder through the middle of the lid to highlight.

With soft feathery strokes, line the upper and lower lashline with Goa Automatic Eye Pencil. Intensify the outer edges with Majorca Automatic Eye Pencil in the root of the lashes, softening the edges using the smudger end of the pencil. For additional smolder, blend Chamois Eye Colour into the lower lash line. Finish with lashings of Black The Ultimate Mascara.

CHEEKS

Contour cheeks with Flowerchild Mineral Powder Blush, focusing the colour underneath the cheekbones.

LIPS

Press Guava Beach Tint into lips, followed with a slick of Mai Tai Lip Gloss in the middle of the lower lip to highlight.

  1. Although I need more eyeshadows like I a hole in the head, I don’t think I’ll be able to resist this new palette. The only Becca palette that I own is Enigma and I love the quality so much I can’t be without more :)

    This collection isn’t really doing anything for me but I love the promo photo. The model looks gorgeous!

  3. Their makeup artist IS amazing and so lovely in person too. This collection is gorgeous. I have both pencils and I think they’re so amazing for the lasting power. The sharpener really works well too. They seriously look as good at the end of the day when you take them off as when you applied in the morning.

    The nail varnishes are great too. I love the handle as it’s made from the signature BECCA grippy textured material and the brush is great for application. I think the promo look for this collection is stunning as always.
