Season after season, there’s always one trend that’s pretty much become a staple in my wardrobe: lace. I love how it could be sexy or it could be demure, vampy or girlish, and always very feminine. Seeing how much I love lace, I was very excited to try the new Lace Collection from Dolce & Gabbana makeup. Lace, also happens to be the designer duo’s signature fabric. The makeup collection, which is very largely nude based, inspires many of the same feelings I have about the material itself: sensual yet elegant.
The collection consists of an intense black mascara, three nude/pink polishes, three nude glosses and an exquisite bronzing palette. The collection was designed with celebrity makeup artist Pat McGrath and is largely flattering on a wide variety of skin tones. The shade ranges from colors that have concentrated peach color to ones that are more pink based and even a few that give off a slight tinge of ash. For me, they’re perfect for every day use and pulling out the packaging always starts conversations. It’s also super easy to go from day to evening: simply brush the bronzing powder to lightly contour and give your skin that enviable glow. Then pair the look with a smoky eye and you’ve got one of the sexiest evening looks around.
