California dreaming – Naj Oleari SS19 “Shine Vibes”

IO DONNA

Be as radiant as the top models in Los Angeles in a never-ending spring. This is the inspiration behind the “Shine Vibes” collection by Italian brand Naj Oleari – a scintillating atmosphere. And Coachella, the music festival held in the Californian desert (12 to 21 April) that’s such a hit among celebrities, certainly promises this. And if you want to try a look that’s “one step ahead of summer trends”, here are some tips from make-up artist Rossana Zerilli, using Naj Oleari Beauty products.

What are the key elements of a “California girl” look?
A sunkissed, amber and luminous complexion is a must. And, when it comes to the eyes, a sparkly and glittery finish gives light to your entire look. You can go for anything from bright colours like blue and coral to warm earthy and sandy tones. Let’s start with the skin…
Once again this season, everyone is after that glowing look – it’s essential that you prepare your skin with Glowing Perfection Serum, an illuminating serum with micropearls and hyaluronic acid, to hydrate and smooth it. Next, contour your cheekbones and warm your cheeks using both ends of the Insta Beauty Blush & Highlighter stick. Finally, complete your look with the earthy Bright Sun Baked Bronzer, blending it into the areas of your face that are most exposed to the sun, like your forehead, nose and cheekbones.

Any tips for a look using metallic tones?
The Soul Mate Duo Eyeshadow stick makes it easy for you to create a range of different looks. You can apply both shades straight onto your eyes with a single stroke or you can blend them with your fingers to create more of a smoky effect.

And your lips? How can you achieve that sexy plumped-up look?
Using natural yet vibrant tones like those in the Shine Vibes Lipstick range – they give the lips a glossy covering of colour and enhance their volume. The stick design makes it easy to apply and retouch, even if you don’t have a pocket mirror. Also perfect for when you’re out and about.
