Makeup trends: Bobbi Brown gets inspiration from Havana’s colours

The American beauty brand has unveiled ’Havana Brights’, its new makeup collection inspired by the vibrant colours of the Cuban capital. Collection essentials will go on sale in Bobbi Brown stockists and online at www.bobbibrowncosmetics.com from March 2017.

While most beauty brands have picked pastel shades or set bright hues against pastel pales, Bobbi Brown stands out from the crowd with an original collection of bold brights, directly inspired by Havana. The collection largely comprises coral shades and long-wear formulations.

Sunkissed glow

Skin is brightened this spring with two "Illuminating Cheek Palettes" (Peach or Guava), each containing three essential powder formulations for a naturally sunkissed and brightening effect. Each palette features three powder shades, with Bobbi Brown’s Illuminating Bronzing Powder to reflect light, Blush for a hint of color and Highlighter to sculpt the face with a healthy glow.

Although eye colours are bright, the shades remain relatively natural. Bobbi Brown has revealed a duo version of the "Long-Wear Cream Shadow" stick, offering sweat- and water-resistant colour with two complementary shades in each combo. The duos can be used to create all kinds of custom looks for different times of day. Seasonal shades include "Peach Mimosa/Taupe," "Truffle/Bronze," "Greige/Midnight" and "Pink Sparkle/Heather Steel."

Lip-smacking colour

Bobbi Brown has two options for lips this spring. First up, "Art Stick Liquid Lip" is a liquid lip colour pen for a bold look, available in three vibrant shades (limited edition Havana Coral, plus Pink Punch and Papaya) and with a semi-matte finish. For a more classic lip, the "Art Stick" pencil — available in Sunset Orange, Electric Pink and Brown Berry — brings colour while ensuring optimal hydration. It has a long-lasting formula that stays put on sunny days.
