I love everything about this look from Scarlett Johansson; the subtle smoky eye, the vibrant red lip, the flawless skin – everything is working!
As the face of Dolce&Gabbana makeup and fragrance, lucky Scarlett has access, not only to their amazing clothes, but also their gorgeous make up.
At the premiere of her new Broadway show, ‘Cat on a Hot Tin Roof’ in New York earlier this month, Scarlett was in full on Dolce&Gabbana mode wearing the brand top to toe. Her makeup artist Gianpaolo Ceciliato said he used Dolce&Gabbana Perfect Luminous Liquid Foundation as a base to even out her skin tone followed by the mix of blush in Sole, Apricot and Mocha. He then focused on the eyes using the kohl pencil in True Black, the eye shadow quad in Bouquet and the Intenseyes Black Intensity Mascara mascara to lengthen and define lashes. On the lips she wore Passion duo lipstick in Tropical and Sheer Shine Gloss in Aqua. Nail wise she had on a bright red nail lacquer called Fire.
I was lucky enough to get my mitts on the Smooth Eye Colour Quad in Bouquet, the Intense Nail Lacquer in Fire and the Black Intensity Mascara.
I am a sucker for good mascara; I think it’s the most important make up purchase. If the rest of my face is working against me, I feel all is right in the world if my eyes look good. They are my favourite feature and even on my barest of makeup days, I always wear mascara. The Dolce&Gabbana Black Intensity Mascara is perfect for creating long, spidery, separated non clumpy lashes.
The Eye Colour Quad in Bouquet isn’t too loud so the colours could be worn to the office or applied with a heavier hand for a night out. The shadow feels rich, luxurious and creamy; these are some beautiful products!
The Intense Nail Lacquer in Fire has been aptly described; this is not a red for the shy among us! It’s a bright, shocking red and I love it. The packaging of all the Dolce&Gabbana products is beautiful; almost too nice to hide away in your cosmetics bag.
While I’m talking about Dolce&Gabbana, I had a smell of their latest fragrance Desire. With top notes of mandarin, lychee and bergamot, a heart of Madonna lily, Indian tuberose and plum nectar and base notes of vanilla infused caramel, sandalwood and Cistus Labdanum, this fragrance smells amazing. I got loads of ‘what’s that you’re wearing?’ when I wore it out and about this week and a spritz on both wrists in the morning still smelled great at the end of the day.
As I always say, while I can’t afford the brand’s clothes (yet!) I can satisfy my designer cravings by indulging in their gorgeous beauty products.
