summer makeup collections inspired by the Mediterranean




This summer, the brands are united in their plans: they released makeup collections in nude shades and dedicated them to the azure coast of France and the resorts of Italy. The new products are waterproof, contain SPF filters, shine, give the skin a light tanning tone and are incredibly photogenic. From Chanel to Kiko Milano, look at the season’s loudest novelties.

Les Beiges Summer Light, Chanel

The Chanel team has put together a versatile summer make-up bag: all the products from the new collection will feel great in your vacation suitcase. Accentuate sunburn, give the skin a radiance, moisturize. The Les Beiges Summer Light collection includes a fluid tint (75% water and contains pigments that refresh the skin), a bronzing cream-gel with a tanning effect (can be applied with a brush to the entire face or used for contouring), reflective powder (evens out tone, improves skin tone, the set includes a crescent-shaped brush), two eye shadow palettes in pink-beige-brown shades.

Also within the collection, the brand introduced four new shades of Rouge Coco Flash lipstick and Le Vernis varnishes.

All Les Beiges Summer Light products are designed in a warm Mediterranean palette.

Summer Dune, Dior

And another collection inspired by travel. Thinking over textures and shades, Peter Philips focused on natural phenomena – desert, dunes, waves on the sand. The result is a series of universal products that can be used for both daytime and evening make-up, applied with brushes and fingers.

Summer Dune is two eyeshadow palettes (Mirage and Dune, from deep brown to shimmery ivory), reversible waterproof liner and eyeliner (shades: black / gold and platinum / blue), ultra-black mascara Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Waterproof Dior Forever Bronze Powder for a light tanning effect.

For lips: Rouge Graphist Lip Liners (available in two shades only and online only), Forever Rouge Liquid Lipstick in four colors and three matching Dior Vernis nail polishes.

Dolce Vita, Kiko Milano

For the Dolce Diva collection, the Kiko Milano team was inspired by the movie stars of the 60s: playful arrows, powdery lips and flawless skin. This is how a bright and voluminous collection was created, which included tonal means, fixing Fresh Feel Setting Powder, blush, cushion highlighter, bronzer with shining particles (the design was separately noted), eye shadow palettes and liquid shadows, waterproof mascara, eyebrow gel, persistent pencils and lipsticks. All this is in summer shades.

I liked that in Dolce Vita, many skin products contain SPF filters, and there is also a waterproof mark.

ACQUA di Portofino, Faberlic

In May, the Faberlic brand also presented a limited summer collection. And she again – about a vacation in the Mediterranean. ACQUA di Portofino includes eight products: wax free mascara, lip gloss and lipstick for wet lips, three vibrant nail polishes and several contouring and glowing products. The latter category includes baked and liquid bronzers and highlighters – you can choose the texture you’re used to.

The cost of funds starts at 350 rubles.

Soleil Brûlant, Tom Ford

Another limited edition from Tom Ford and just two products: Cream and Powder Eye Color and Sunlust Lip. The brand is always attentive to packaging design, but here it did not miss the technical issues. The eyeshadow is housed in a two-tiered case, with shimmery gold on top and an ultra-pigmented, creamy base underneath. Looks impressive both in the package and on the eyes. And the golden shine after application gives the lips a pink-peach tint.

Bronzing powder Terracotta, Guerlain

Terracotta powder is a famous product of Guerlain. And by this summer, the brand has released a new version of the product – a bronzing powder, which is 96% composed of ingredients of natural origin (including pigments and mother-of-pearl). One of the ingredients is argan oil. The powder is available in three shades.
