During the Holiday Season I love to add a little shimmer to my evening look – just to give me a little je ne sais quoi. Now when I say shimmer I mean a gentle, subtle glow and not full on glitter.
Elizabeth Arden is definitely my new best friend because they are the creators of the Everything Glows Collection. Now I can brighten up my eyes, cheeks and lips with shades that glimmer and shimmer with elegance.
This wonderful collection includes:
Everything Glows Compact for Eyes
A gleaming silver case filled with five shimmery shades that create a palette of holiday elegance for day and night. Vitamin-enriched, crease-resistant and silky smooth, each eyeshadow provides rich, true color that lasts all day.
Everything Glows Lip Gloss Duo
Inside the dual-sided compact, two coordinating lip glosses double the dazzle in sheer sparkling Shimmer and glistening rosy Shine.
A dusting of sheer, shimmering powder to give skin a luminous glow. Its soft, Kabuki-style brush highlights cheekbones, decolletage and shoulders for a rich, radiant appearance.
This is truly my favourite item in the collection. It is easy to apply and makes me look radiant.
The look isn’t complete until you smell divine too:
Elizabeth Arden Mediterranean
Sensual florals combine with creamy woods to reflect the whispering waters and rich textures of the Mediterranean.
