AW18 Hottest Makeup: Westman Atelier, Burberry and Hourglass

Like it or not, but most Autumn 2018 makeup collections are already available, even thought you may not have had your summer holiday yet.

And here are the new launches that stood out to me, and I have chosen something for the lips, eyes and face.

First of all, there is a new make-up artist’s makeup line on the block. This time Gucci Westman finally revealed her long awaited collection. Apparently,  the procuts not only work as makeup but also should improve the skin.

I love the chic and modern look of the packaging, and would love to try the liquid blushes myself. So far the line is available from Barney’s ,and I would not mind trying the Baby Cheeks Blush Stick, $50.

  • Organic jojoba oil: tones and restores skin.
  • China clay: absorbs excess oil.

Want It: Estee Lauder La Dangereuse by Violette Makeup Collection

To be honest, Estee Lauder was never the brand I cared for that much until recently, somehow very few products appealed to me. The  break through for me was the collaboration with Victoria Beckham.I’ve been following her for ages now.

And ever since EL appointed Violette to be their Creative Director, everything changed. This is her second collection, and it looks perfect. I also love how well edited it is, there are only a few products but they are absolutely perfect!

La Dangereuse:

Eye Gloss, Dot on bare skin or over eye makeup (£24), Glitter Pot ( £22), Pure Color Envy
Sculpting Lipstick  in Diabolique (£27), Pure Color Envy Paint On Liquid Lipcolor (£25)in La Dangereuse and Naked Matte, Deluxe Eye Crayon( £21) Sly & Sultry, Pure Color Envy
