Your perfect foundation colour revealed
Light, white, chic and sophisticated, you’ll be drawn towards the iconic and oversized Red Door. Inside the entire Elizabeth Arden range of skincare, colour and fragrances is showcased, as well as unique beauty services, such as makeovers, nails, brows and oxygen blast face refreshers. Luxury facials and additional beauty services will be available from next month. The most intriguing feature of the new Elizabeth Arden Boutique is the Custom Colour Foundation matching machine – one of only three in the world. If, like many of us, you have a beauty drawer full of foundation mis-matches, this machine is the code-breaker you’ve been waiting for. Here’s how it works: • A spectrophotometer takes a scan of your exact skin colour and tone. • It establishes your accurate pigment profile, using the four pigments that make up everyone’s skin colour – black, white, red and yellow. • You can submit your preference for sheer, medium or full
coverage, as well as a matt or natural finish. • You receive a bottle of your personalised formula, beautifully boxed with a label that includes your name, unique pigment code and preferred finish. This ground-breaking service is surprisingly affordable – just $88 for the scan, formula and final product. What a gift for yourself or a close friend! Also at the new Elizabeth Arden Boutique is the Beauty Bar, the perfect spot to update your look or glam up before a night out. Instore makeup artists can introduce you to new looks that will suit you, then show you how to achieve them yourself. Next time you’re in the Auckland CBD, make a bee-line for the Elizabeth Arden Boutique. It’s no ordinary makeup and skincare store; it’s an enlightening adventure.
