Paris Pretty is Bourjois’ newest makeup collection for Spring 2010. I couldn’t help noticing this collection since it has so many pink products that makes it a perfect Spring collection.
The model makeup is so natural and fresh with a touch of coral on the lips. She looks absolutely beautiful and this is the look that I wanna have in this Spring with minor changes on the lips color.
Let’s take a look of these products included in this collection and more promo photos.
Regard Effet Duochrome eye pencil – 6.90 Eur
Available in one color:
It’s a colorful Autumn, so you can satisfy all your fantasies in terms of eye makeup – from the thinnest eye contour or a more intense one with black eyeliner, tot the tinted eyelids or in “naughty” colors.
Tip: A very sensual trend of this season is the makeup “tone on tone”. For example, they eyelids painted in beige or brown shades must be assorted with a blush also brown and lips of beige or nude colors.

Contrasts are the law when it comes to color lips this season: you can opt for electric colors, but even for some very dark ones. Common denominator is boldly. As for me, I think I will stick to those electric colors, cause being so white skin dark colors won’t do anything else, then make me look very pale or even Emo style.
Tip: If you want purple or electric pink lips, the eyes makeup should be reduced to minimum – neutral eyeshadow and mascara -, otherwise you will get more a funny look then a trendy one. For evening, when you want a retro-glam look, you can accentuate your eyes and lips, with the condition that you’ll stick in the same color range. Continue Reading

Silver is perfect as an evening makeup and emphasizes the eyes, no matter the color. If you take a peek to Giorgio’s Armani summer collection and you’ll study the radiance makeups based of metallic gray, you will see that I’m right.

Since Bourjois has launched the Butterfly effect this year, I wanted to try out this makeup. Blue is not among my favorites eyeshadow colors but this look reinvents blue into a new ultra modern version. Being a green eyes girl I tend not to use blue or green eyeshadows.
Found in intense shades of purple, blue is at the same time representative of elegance and rock ‘n’ roll. In combination with shade of rose petals, takes over the electrical reflexes as vibrant as butterfly wings.
Eyes: a dark purple makeup resembling an electric blue due to the eye pencil and outlined by a black Kohl with blue reflexes.
Eyelashes: covered with a black rock ‘n’ roll mascara.
A fresh an healthy complexion.
A fresh sensation of the lips,translucent shades of colors, bright light and soft.
Electrical nails, but elegant.
