Awaken your senses with shades of Italian springtime
by Priya jadhav
It’s time to shake off the grey of winter and embrace the first rays of sun with the new KIKO MILANO Tuscan Sunshine Collection. Transform your look with a light, playful line up that is full of the joys of spring: sensorial textures, embracing fragrances and shimmer colours celebrate the arrival of a new season and invite you out into the open air.
Designed with care in Italy, the collection is full of Tuscan spirit, bringing together the very best of KIKO’s heritage – found in everything from its simple, high quality products and packaging to its sensorial colours and textures. Enriched with the brand’s true DNA, the Tuscan Sunshine Collection is definitely inspired by Italy.
The collection brings long-awaited newness and innovation with a palette of fresh tones and deep floral shades, allowing you to play with colour to accentuate your features. Peony pinks and iris purples contrast with rusty reds and violet blues, painting a picture of the Tuscan campagna. How will you wear the look?
START WITH CLEAN, CLEAR SKIN
Wash away winter with a three-step routine designed to spring-clean your skin and leave it looking glowing and fresh. Begin with Transforming Face Cleanser, rubbing a small amount between fingers and across your wet face. Massage into the skin and watch as the ultra-gentle oil formula transforms to an emulsion, invigorating your senses and lifting away dirt and residue, then splash away with lukewarm water. Next, exfoliate and renew skin with Face Scrub, revealing a super soft complexion. Complete your ritual with Gel to Water Face Cream, offering hydration and a lightweight feel as the gel formula absorbs into skin like water.
BUILD BLUSH FOR YOUR FACE
Create a light, radiant canvas ready for the warm weather using Luminous Foundation, evening the skin tone, camouflaging imperfections and enjoying a cool, refreshing feel. Dust Perfecting Powder across the nose, forehead and chin for matte, natural-looking skin and pair with a Radiant Bronzer on the volumes of the face for the first hint of sun kissed glow. Now it’s time to build your blush. Begin with the 3-In-1 All Over Stick, swiping on cheeks and blending for a color that accentuates your bone structure, then use in the 2-In-1 Brush to layer on Degradé Blush for increased definition. Work the brush in gentle circular motions to blend the pure, satin pigments into your skin for a flush of soft, sensual pink.
BRING EYES ALIVE WITH TUSCAN TONES
Let the change of season tempt out your experimental side and get ready to try out a look that’s the perfect ode to spring. Reach for the super versatile 6 Colour Eye shadow Palette in one of two colour combos and get creative; mix metallic champagnes with matte brown, orange and rose from the Tuscan Escape palette for an earthy option, or blend bronze and rose metallic with a matte wine hue from the Spring Awake palette for a new take on a smoky eye. Add definition with the Eyeliner Duo, using the matte end for block definition and the metallic end for eye-catching shimmer, and enhance brows with Eyebrow Duo by creating defined blade-like strokes with the felt marker end and filling colour with the micro-tip pencil. Complete the look with either the 3-in-1 Mascara but before apply the Primer Mascara for enhanced volume and length.
GLOW LIPS WITH PETAL SHIMMER SHADES
Bring some colour to your lips and get inspired by the soft florals of a Tuscan garden – think of the blushing petals of peonies and lilies coming into full bloom. Start by applying a slick of Nourishing Lip Oil to soften and smooth lips, then build soft, sheer colour using the Lip Stylo. Combining the comfort feel of a balm with deep, colourful shine, the Lip Stylo delivers a luminous, sheer finish that is utterly foolproof – just press to your lips and let the colour and shine bring your lips alive. Amp up the colour and shine with Holo Lip-gloss for an enhanced finish, pairing the shade with your Lip Stylo colour for a brighter burst of colour.
ADD SOME FUN FINISHING TOUCHES
Offset your shimmer colours with a deep nail shade to change up your look and express yourself. Two coats will do it – they’ll be the perfect finishing touch. And before you head out to enjoy the first rays of springtime sunshine, grab the Face Palette for touch ups on the go, bringing together your favourite shades in one place. Now, go and enjoy that warm weather at last!
