TUTORIAL | The Burberry Essentials Collection 2017 and Live Swatches

The Burberry Essentials Collection revolves around the famed Fresh Glow range of products, some of which I have discussed before, but I wanted to show you some new techniques I have been playing with.  I love Burberry's effortless signature glowing skin because looks natural and polished, never over done and easy for anyone at any age to achieve!

I have been layering highlighters and working on strategically placed contours, mostly because I am trying to cut back on how much setting and bronzing powders I wear.  Since my hormonal acne has flared up yet again and this time, severely traumatized my skin, I've missed going natural.  I want to embrace my skin's real texture and composition so I'm hoping this tutorial will inspire some of you to step away from full coverage mattes and excess powder, too!

The new additions to the Burberry Beauty range to complete this Essentials Collection are the Lip Color Contour Pens and the Fresh Glow Highlighter in Rose Gold.  The lipsticks are so innovative and the formula so ideal for my dry sensitive lips; you absolutely need to try them! The texture feels whipped but the pigmentation is opaque and smooth. It also functions as a primer so I did not experience any feathering! I hope they expand the color range with more beige-toned and warmer rose nudes soon.

Shu Uemura x Ambush Collaboration Review, Photos, Swatches #Ad

Shu Uemura recently collaborated with Japanese jewelry brand Ambush, and it's one of the most fresh and funky yet wearable collections they've unveiled in ages. My favorites are the mixed silver and gold lipstick bullets with the modern stamped logo look. Each of the shades is supremely luxe.

The mattes have a plush whipped texture that smooths lip lines and the shine formula is shimmery but feels like liquid gold. Shu Uemura might have tweaked the formula a bit on these, because they seem a little bit better than usual. More details and photos after the jump!
