Starting with the Caviar Stick Eye Color in Twilight (greyish-purple-brown) and Sterling (silver), these velvety waterproof pigments stand great on their own or as Michel suggests, combining them with an illuminating eye shadow for greater impact.

Illuminating Eye Colour (Crystal Fantasy, Pearl Fantasy, Opal Fantasy)

Fantasies don’t just comes in 50 Shades of Grey, they also come in Crystal Fantasy (mint), Pearl Fantasy (lilac) and Opal Fantasy (baby pink). Michel offers two ways to wear Illuminating Eye Colour, softening the look with brush strokes or layering over matte eye shadow using a dense brush.

For lips that speak for themselves, Michel introduces long-wear Crème Smooth Lip Colour. Packed with moisturizing exotic oils, Mocha Myth brings rich color without caking your lips. Those who prefer glossier finishes will fall head over heels for Brilliant Glacé, multi-dimensional, super-hydrating glosses in Pink Prism (pinkish-gold), Rose Prism (rose-peony) and Nude Prism (taupish-pink).

Looking for more definition without resorting to black? Well take comfort in the refreshing limited edition Tightline Cake Eye Liner in Gunmetal Smoke, which Michel insists compliments and defines over the root of lashes with long-lasting results. Using a flat liner brush, Michel demonstrates by adding 1-2 drops of Tightline Activator (a waterproof serum) for an opaque consistency that coats the eyeliner.

Second Skin Cheek Colour mimics the look of flushed cheeks, delivering an effortless pinkish-golden apricot hue by Orange Blossom.

Mineral Illuminating Powder (Candle Light)

The rose-gold radiance of Candle Light Mineral Illuminating Powder highlights eyes, cheeks and body with an iridescent glow. Michel recommends applying the powder with a finishing brush.

No look is complete without at least a basic manicure. Limited edition Nail Lacquer in Butterfly Wings (taupe) and Angel Wings (pearlescent) are as modern as they are elegant.
