Make-up Look // Burberry Beauty

There’s something about possessing Burberry make-up that makes me feel a little giddy inside; a slice of luxury in my make-up bag that makes doing my face in the morning way less of a chore. I was kindly sent a few bits to try out from the Burberry Beauty range and thought I’d use it as an excuse to do a full face (well near enough) of Burberry make-up look. I squealed with glee when unboxing all these products, and I am sure you will agree with me that they are intensely alluring.

I have been a real lover of the Burberry Fresh Glow fluid, which I have had for a while now, and I used that all over my face for a ‘lit from within’ glow. This was a great base for the Burberry Cashmere Foundation (£35), which I have in the shade Porcelain, the perfect shade for my pallor that offers a long-lasting matte finish that is inspired by the softness of Burberry cashmere. I really love this product for when I have a long day ahead of me, or want more coverage. Although the foundation is high coverage, the formula is surprisingly lightweight and includes additional SPF20.

Not featured in the look is the Fresh Glow B.B. Cream (£30). I have never really been a fan of BB, CC or tinted moisturiser products, but the promise of this moisturising, protecting and enhancing my skin for a healthy-looking glow piqued my interest. Sadly, even in the lightest shade (Fair), it was a bit too dark for my skin. It did feel lovely on the skin though, and it would be great for those more natural skin days. I’ll try this again when I have a bit of fake tan on!

For my cheeks I used the Lip & Cheek Bloom in Rose 01 (£24), which provides a rather gorgeous petal-soft wash of colour. The formula is slightly mousse-like and blends seamlessly into the skin (I just use my fingers). It’s also really moisturising and smoothes skin when applied. The ideal product if you are a natural English Rose like me.

Now, the [first] FUN PART: The eyes, obvs. These were the products that had me the most excited. The two products that I have work in harmony together; honestly they are the most ideal pairing! The Burberry Eye Colour Contour (£23) is a handy little stick eyeshadow that helps to shape and sculpt the eye. I have the shade Rosewood (YES PLL APPROVED!), which is a stunning browny pinky mauve shade. I used this in my crease, while using the Burberry Eye Colour Cream (£25) in Dusky Mauve on my lid. I’m definitely getting more of these because their pigment and staying power is INCRED. So easy to blend out and no creasing, which I find sometimes tricky with cream shadows. The formula is so lightweight and creamy; it can also be used as a liner - I used it to line my lower lash line. The only annoying thing with the Eye Colour Contour is that mine has come out somehow so the product falls into the lid. It’s still usable though once I put it back in the right side.

The second bit of fun obvs comes with the lips. We all know I have a lipstick obsession, which is crazy for someone who has only one pair of lips… I stand up, I confess, my name is Jemma and I am a lipstick addict. In my look I used the Burberry Full Kisses (£24) in Lilac, which is my new obsession. I LOVE these lipsticks; they’re easy to use – especially for outlining your lips - and provide a bold, long-lasting colour. I also have the shade Cherry Blossom and the standard Burberry Kisses Lipstick (£25) in Nude Pink, which is a really hydrating, comfortable formula for every day.
