BEAUTY brand Lan­come is firmly on board the cur­rent trend for metallics, with a sum­mer make-up col­lec­tion called Sum­mer Swing that matches bold eyes with fresh, glow­ing skin.

From high­light­ing to strob­ing, the world’s make-up artists use all man­ner of tech­niques to il­lu­mi­nate skin and sculpt con­tours.

This sum­mer sees Lan­come go for “soft drap­ing” with blusher and “con­tour­ing” with bronz­ing pow­der, for a glow­ing, ra­di­ant and slightly sun-kissed com­plex­ion, like af­ter spend­ing a day in the sun.

For this, the French beauty brand has an all-in-one prod­uct to slip into your suit­case this sum­mer – Belle de Teint Bronzer & Blush – avail­able in Pa­tio Mediter­ra­neen for paler skin tones and Pa­tio d’Une Nuit d’Ete for darker com­plex­ions.

Within its graphic, mo­saic-style case, the pal­ette fea­tures two bronz­ing pow­ders (one light, one dark) and two blush­ers to sculpt the face and decol­lete.

Elec­tric eyes

For­get pas­tel shades or nat­u­ral looks for eyes this sum­mer. Most beauty brands have gone for me­tal­lic shades, bring­ing an elec­tric flash of shim­mer­ing colour to eyes.

Lan­come is no ex­cep­tion, with its Met­allique Eye Shadow liq­uid eye colour land­ing in a se­lec­tion of new shades that chan­nel the trend. The sum­mer colours are shim­mery, al­most bur­nished metallics, for a strik­ing fin­ish.

There’s a turquoise blue (Brise Azur), a gold (Or Farniente), a pink (Tempo Mediter­ra­neen), a shim­mer­ing brown (Mocha Swing) and a bronze (Bronze Ri­vage).

The elec­tric ef­fect can be amped up to the max for sizzling sum­mer nights by pair­ing the liq­uid eye colours with Le Stylo Wa­ter­proof eye pen­cil. The range of colours matches Lan­come’s sea­sonal Met­allique Eye Shadow of­fer­ing, with gold, bronze, turquoise, dark blue and mocha pen­cils.

Nails also get shim­mer­ing shades with a se­lec­tion of Ver­nis In Love pol­ishes in me­tal­lic shades, match­ing the sum­mer eye colours with stylish ef­fect. The col­lec­tion fea­tures four colours: L’Echapee Belle, a shim­mer­ing blue-green, L’Es­prit Li­bre, a turquoise blue, and two more neu­tral yet just as in­tense shades – Re­flet d’Ar­gent and Grain de Folie. – AFP Re­laxnews
