While I respectfully worship at the altar of Christopher Bailey, Creative Director at Burberry, my pennies don’t yet stretch as far as his designs for Burberry Prorsum.
I can however live the dream through the Burberry Beauty make up range. As Jourdan Dunn is one of the faces of the brand, I rub my hands with glee knowing that the make up colours will be complimentary to brown skins.
You need a great base for a look as fresh and radiant as this so opt for a good, velvety foundation. I’ve been using Bobbi Brown Even Finish Foundation SPF 15 (£30) for medium to full coverage. It gives a natural finish and is particularly suited to those with oily skins. I use ‘walnut’ and I like that, even though I’m on the darker end of the spectrum, the foundation comes in three even darker shades.
To get Jourdan and Jasmine’s look, follow these application tips from Wendy Rowe, Burberry Beauty’s Artistic Consultant:
• Apply black mascara to upper and lower lashes. I’ve been using Clarins Wonder Perfect Mascara (£20) for long, spidery lashes.
• Add Burberry Beauty Eye Definer in Midnight Brown No. 02 to the upper and lower lash line, using Eye Brush Definition Liner No. 10 to blend and intensify
• Sweep Burberry Beauty Sheer Eyeshadow in Dark Sable No. 23 along the socket line. Blend Mulberry No. 24 underneath the eye for a smoky finish
• Blend Burberry Beauty Lip Cover in Sepia Pink No. 32 and Mocha Glow No. 31 and apply to the lips for a satin finish. It’s hard to find a good nude if you have slightly dark lips, but these two shades mixed together work perfectly.
As you can imagine, the products are beautiful; the packaging, the brushes and the finish all live up to the extremely high standard you expect from Burberry. You can get them all here.
