This month’s new and note­wor­thy must-haves.

ELLE (Canada) - - Beauty -


Make Up For Ever is launch­ing its first col­lab­o­ra­tion. Work­ing with Fifty Shades of Grey’s movie pro­duc­tion team, the beauty brand has cre­ated four colour kits inspired by the lead fe­male char­ac­ter, Anas­ta­sia Steele. Vic­to­ria Down, the makeup-de­part­ment head for the film, used the De­sire Me Cheeky Blush Trio ($56) to con­jure up Steele’s post-coital glow, blend­ing the darker-pink blush across the ap­ples of the cheeks, on the nose and a lit­tle on the chin and hair­line. “It gave the ap­pear­ance of a healthy flush from under the skin and not like ‘ap­plied’ blush,” she says. “To cre­ate her high­lighted-cheek look, I used pink and co­ral blushes dusted very lightly under the cheek­bones as a con­tour­ing tool.”


The clever minds behind Burt’s Bees have launched their (100-per­cent nat­u­ral) take on the ubiq­ui­tous lip crayon. These creamy, fra­grance-free lip colours con­tain mois­tur­iz­ing in­gre­di­ents shea but­ter and kendi and jo­joba oils but still have a semi-matte (and, thus, mod­ern) tex­ture. The six shades take in­spi­ra­tion from the nat­u­ral eye candy of geo­graph­i­cal re­gions, such as the warm sands of Ari­zona and the colour­ful spring flow­ers of Ni­a­gara-on-the-Lake. No pass­port re­quired. Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon in Napa Vine­yard, Red­wood For­est, Se­dona Sands, Ni­a­gara Over­look and Carolina Coast ($10 each)
