It’s grey and cold outside, so all the more reason to distract ourselves from the gloomy weather with dreams of the warm summer months. To get us in the mood, I’m showcasing one of my favourite new launches for the summer, Elizabeth Arden Sunset Bronze Limited Edition Collection.
“This summer is all about a bold bronzed glow and this universal collection is comprised of colors that complement and accentuate all skin tones. Use the highlighter to sculpt cheeks and add a sheer, iridescent shine, then warm the face with bronzer, and finish the look with the rose gold shadow, with a hint of purple for an exotic touch.

From the prismatic bronzing powder to the prismatic lip glosses, Elizabeth Arden Sunset Bronze will help illuminate your face and get you ready to walk out into the sunset. The packaging is beyond gorgeous, with bright metallic colours in pinks and golds.(above) LIMITED EDITION Sunset Bronze Prismatic Eye Shadow Palette is encased in a beautiful multi-dimensional pink metallic compact. This shimmery palette features five highly pigmented shades which can be used to create a natural to more dramatic look, depending on the effect you’re after.
“The palette offers great versatility in shade range and use. Use the soft pink as a highlighter on the brow bone or build upon application for a pop of color; for tan, olive or deeper skin tones use the golden amber shade. Create a soft smoky eye with the neutral taupe-plum by contouring above the crease and the outer edge of your eye, or even apply as eyeliner; for a dramatic smoky eye swap for the rich purple shade.”
(above) LIMITED EDITION Sunset Bronze Prismatic Bronzing Powder is a beautiful illuminating bronzer powder that can be used to add the perfect sunset glow to your complexion. I’ve also been using the powder to contour, as the I find it’s just the perfect combination of matte with a very small amount of shimmer.
“This bronzer adds warmth while also contouring the shape of the face. To apply, start at the edge of the cheekbone, in line with the bottom of the ear, making short upward strokes, fading to the center of the face. Then stroke the brush along the hairline to create a contoured halo effect. Finish by applying a subtle veil of shimmer all over the face, ears and neck down to the décolleté.”
(above) LIMITED EDITION Sunset Bronze Prismatic Highlighter is an easy to use skin illuminator that can be used to add some brilliance to your cheeks and brow bones. I love the formula as it glides on perfectly smooth and evenly.
“I love to use this highlighter to create a radiant, modern and sexy face. Apply the highlighter, before blush and bronzer, along the outer edge of the brow moving in a ‘C’ formation along the cheekbones, fading to the center of the face. Also apply to the center of the nose starting at eye level, moving down the bridge to right above the tip of the nose.”
(above) LIMITED EDITION Sunset Bronze Prismatic Lip Gloss are my definitely my MUST HAVE this season (especially Moonlight Kiss). The multi-dimensional pigmentation is beyond gorgeous. Shades: Midnight Kiss (Soft Pink), Moonlight Kiss (Lavender), Sunset Kiss (Champagne).
These lip glosses are also ultra hydrating because of the Aloe Vera and Vitamins A, C, and E in the formula.
“These glosses offer subtle sparks of glittery color. They’re amazing on their own, or to add a hint of shine and volume to lips, apply in the center of the mouth on top ofBeautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick.”
There’s nothing like distracting yourself from gloomy days by drooling over spring and summer makeup collections. This new Elizabeth Arden Sunset Bronze Collection is definitely calling my name!
