Summer for me means bronze skin & cinnamon tans (anyone get the reference? I love this song, btw). Since I tan really easily, that means a change in makeup becomes necessary and I especially like the look of cooler neutrals for a sun-kissed and unfussy look. That's where Lise Watier's Summer 2015 collection, Rivages, comes in.
Inspired by the beach, the new products and colours are the perfect complement to summer tans. I was lucky enough to be sent most of the collection and could not wait to start playing with everything. I mean, look at how pretty it all is!
The star is, of course, the Palette Rivages Eyeshadows, a gorgeous palette with a mother of pearl cover that houses 10 neutral shades. The shadows feature Lise Watier's signature powder-cream formula, which is a little hard to describe. The texture is on the harder side (don't expect a "buttery" application) but seems to work with these shimmers. I applied the 24 Hrs Glam Eyeshadow in Sexy Glam, a pale pink stick eyeshadow, as a base before layering on the rose gold and taupe shadows from the palette. For a smudgy but still defined eye, I used an angle brush with the darkest shadow as a liner and the Smokey Kohl Velours in Nude Velours to line my bottom waterline.
Lise Watier releases a new bronzer every summer and this year's is the Rivages Bronzing Powder. It's a baked marble of bronze, pink, and gold that adds a nice glow to the skin. I also love the new Blush Fondant Suprême in Sand which is a beautiful muted rose pink. Rouge Sublime Lipstick in Amour finished off this very pink-themed look.
