Gilded. Luxurious. Majestic. All words you could use to describe the intricate baroque details and over-the-top statement trends that were seen this season on fashion runways around the world. Each unabashedly lavish detail served as inspiration for Elizabeth Arden’s latest collection of limited edition makeup.
Create the stunning looks of the season and take glamour and indulgence to stunning new heights with the light-catching and intensifying Elizabeth Arden Golden Opulence Limited Edition Colour Collection, your passport to a bold and glamorous look.
Contour, define and glow! It all begins with radiant, glowing skin - the perfect canvas to paint upon from a palette of rich forest green and matte brown with accents of shimmering golden metallics. The finishing touches include an artful stroke of intense black liner to the lids and a sexy swipe of peachy-orange shine to the lips.
“Elizabeth Arden’s new Golden Opulence Collection captures the opulent and baroque trends from the fashion runways in an extremely wearable colour palette,” says Rebecca Restrepo, Elizabeth Arden Global Makeup Artist. “The highlighter offers women a way to make a statement with their skin - glowing and radiant, yet natural - and the four shadow palette and liquid liner are the perfect tools for building from simple to dramatic in seconds.”
Golden Opulence Limited Edition Colour Collection
LIMITED EDITION Beautiful Color Highlighter in Gold Illumination RRP$72
This tri-tone, shimmering powder highlighter adds an instant soft, natural glow to the skin. The compact includes shades of champagne, gold, and bronze formulated with microlight minerals, vitamins, and environmental protectants to soothe the skin while masking fine lines and wrinkles with light-diffusing minerals.
- Vitamins and Antioxidants: Environmental protectant rich conditioners help to protect and soothe the skin.
- Mica Mineral: A pearlised mineral that illuminates and brightens.
- Illuminating, microlight minerals: Optical diffusers that work to scatter light and soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
Rebecca Recommends: “Create a glamorous, radiant glow by blending these three shimmering golden tones together and applying to where the sun hits your face - the top of the cheekbones up toward the temple, the sides of the forehead, and the chin. The highlighter is also great for creating contour. Use the two bronze colours to shade the top of the hairline, the cheekbones and along the jawline to accentuate your favourite facial features. Then use the highlighter on the highest points of the face to create that sexy, sculpted, glowing look”.
LIMITED EDITION Beautiful Color Eye Shadow Quad RRP$75
This majestic palette includes four beautiful shades that can be combined and built upon to create an infinite number of looks, from subtly sexy to decadently daring: a deep metallic emerald, a sparkling pink champagne, a stunning matte brown, and a glimmering gold.
- Advanced Pigment Technology: Coats each pigment particle with a blend of silky silicone for a luxurious and smooth application with exceptional colour saturation.
- Retinyl Linoleate: A Vitamin A derivative that helps support skin’s own natural collagen production, helping to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Vitamins C and E: Environmental protectants, these vitamins help to reduce the destructive power of environmental stressors and protect the skin from visible signs of aging.
Rebecca Recommends: “I created the colours in this palette to offer lid, liner and crease options as well as colours that can be worn alone or in any combination desired. I recommend a shimmering wash of the pink or gold all over the lid for an everyday look, or you can reinterpret the smoky eye with a more unexpected colour. For this I suggest using the gold to highlight the brow bone and the deep green in the crease”.
LIMITED EDITION Beautiful Color High Intensity Liquid Eye Liner in Jet Black RRP$48
A water-resistant liquid liner that lasts throughout the day without smudging or running. The liner supplies high-intensity colour for creating a customised look, from ultra-thin to super dramatic. The felt tip and ergonomic grip ensures maximum precision and even application.
Rebecca Recommends: “I love an ornate eye look, something more decadent and dramatic. Nothing says drama like a winged lid - start by lining right at the lashline and then move to the outer corners of the eye to create the wing, filling in and thickening the line to your liking. I also like to use it as a very fine line along the lash line to give the lashes more intensity”.
LIMITED EDITION Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss in Imperial Shimmer RRP$49
A moisture-rich lip gloss in a shimmering orangey-peach shade that will give lips long-wearing, sensual colour and shine while also conditioning and adding fullness.
- Emollient Esters: Provide long-wearing and conditioning properties.
- Super Sterol Esters: Soften and moisturise lips.
- Mango & Shea Butters: Natural emollients that help lock in moisture to protect and soothe lips.
- Maxi-Lip™: Helps to support natural collagen for plumper, fuller looking lips.
Rebecca Recommends: “For a soft glow on the lips, apply it at the center and then blend out with your fingers. This trick softens the shine for a more subtle look”.
