Oh my! And aren’t we just loving this short, sassy and sweet new ‘Old Hollywood’ collection from Bobbi Brown?
The colours stick to black and red with highlights of those divine soft, shimmering beige and sheeny metallic shadows (9 in total) in an eye palette that’s set to become an indispensable addition to most girls-in-the-know’s make up bag. What’s particularly appealing about this selection is they are just so damn adaptable! Ranging from soft silver sparkle and subtle gold metallic to rich chocolate and charcoal shimmer, this eye palette (£59) will be used beyond mere Christmas party eyes.
And then we have the cream shadow sticks that are meltingly soft and glide across the eye without pulling in the slightest. The easiest cream shadow that delivers intense colour in a long while – available in shades of 24 Karat, Bronze (both limited edition) and a dead cert star, Tuxedo Black (£20 each). Claudia Winkleman should go seek out this Hollywood baby for the ultimate smudge fest. Tuxedo Black’s sibling is the swish felt tip ink liner in Blackest Black (£20) for those who want cat’s eyes with definition.
It’s not Old Hollywood if there isn’t a kick of red courtesy of the bright scarlet leading lady of the pack – Old Hollywood Lip Colour (£22). With it’s twist up gold casing, it shines with a little Hollywood glamour. If red ain’t your thang’ then Bobbi Brown has three shades of high colour lip gloss in this collection (Candlelight, Rose & Pure Gold). A shimmer slick of gold gloss over Ms Old Hollywood red gives a new modernist punch.
To complete the look, add some glitter nail polish (£11 each) in Chrome or Solid Gold. Or, wear over Tuxedo Black or Siren Red polish to shine.
You don’t have to be retro to add a little Old Hollywood.
The Old Hollywood Collection is available now at Bobbi Brown Studios nationwide and online.
