The Elizabeth Arden Summer 2014 Summer Escape Collection has some really fun nautical themed packaging. As soon as I saw the boxes I knew this was going to be a fun collection. Open up the boxes and all the products aside from the mascara have their own touch of this nautical look and are a mix of sandy neutrals and vivid maritime hues.

Rebecca Restrepo, Elizabeth Arder Global Makeup Artist, has created two looks for the Summer Escape Collection and I thought it would be fun to recreate them.

Elizabeth Arden Summer Escape Look3

Wearing Anchors Away in my crease is too shimmery for my hooded lids but the shade is beautiful. To make this look work better for me I would need to incorporate a matte shade in my crease. I am absolutely loving the vibrant effect of the blue mascara and the coral lip gloss pencil is TO DIE FOR!

Pink Sky:

Pink_Sky[1]-page-001 Elizabeth Arden Summer Escape Look6

Elizabeth Arden Summer Escape Look5

The Pink Sky Look omits Anchors Away in the crease but since I did the Summer Escape Look first, and I was feeling lazy, I left the eye look the same. Once again the Beautiful Color Gloss Stick is incredible. I am going to put this in bold so it doesn’t get missed in this large post: You need to go check out these Elizabeth Arden limited edition Beautiful Color Gloss Sticks in Coral Reef and Pink Sky. They are must haves. They over the colour coverage of a lipstick with the intense shine of a gloss. These pics do not do the gloss of these justice. And the best part, the part that really blew me away, the colour AND shine of these gloss sticks last for hours. I mean two hours later my lips looked exactly the same. Even as they wear off a bit as hours go on the shine remains. I am madly in love with these and wish there were more than two shades!

Elizabeth Arden Summer Escape Color Collection 2014 will be available at Shoppers Drug Mart, Hudson`s Bay, Sears, and London Drugs for a limited time beginning March 2014.

A Glam Look From Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Collection

Elizabeth Arden Look Products1

I wanted to share with you a glam look inspired by this Holiday Glam Look created by Elizabeth Arden Global Makeup Artist Rebecca Restrepo. It is such an easy look to create and offers a big impact thanks to a statement red lip. Here is Rebecca’s look.

Holiday Glam 2013-page-001

The eyes were enhanced using Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye Shadow Singles ($18.50 US/$24 CAD.) I didn’t have the Irridescent Pink eyeshadow to incorporate the modern touch of lilac into my look. I was also missing Golden Ivy. Instead my look took on a simpler take on the eye with Blonde on the lid and lower lash line, Shimmering Emerald on the outer corner and into the crease, and a very pale pink called Innocence on the brow bone and inner corner. On the lashes I’m wearing the Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Colour Lash Enhancing Mascara ($24 US/$30 CAD) in Black.

For the cheeks I applied the Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Radiance Blush ($26 US/$35 CAD) in Sunblush which is a lovely rosewood shade with subtle gold flecks for a natural glow.

Elizabeth Arden Look Products6

Now for the star of the look, the Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick ($25 US/$30 CAD) in Red Door Red. This baby packs a punch of pigment and makes lips look plump and glowing.
