Dolce & Gabbana's Italian Zest makeup collection is the next big summer thing
Living la dolce vita
Inspired by the sun's golden glow and the water's endless stretch of blue, Dolce & Gabbana's latest makeup edit will be the go-to palette for the summer-loving gals. With playful and vivid colours that capture the essence of the Capri Coast, the aptly named Italian Zest collection will have you switching on paradise mode while you're putting on your face.
In a mix of la dolce vita meets fresh-faced luminosity, the limited edition lineup approaches the classic Italian look — think heavily-winged eyes and a blood red lip — with a softer take, working more natural tones and textures that start with the Healthy Glow Stick to contour and highlight the face. Blend a few simple strokes of the shade Bronze to create a honeyed tan that won't ever look overbaked, then swipe the lighter counterpart in Shimmer across the top of the cheekbones and the cupid's bow (your décolletage and shoulders too, if you can't get enough of that lit-from-within glow) for a touch of golden gleam.
Similarly, give your peepers some of that shimmery goodness with the new Mono Eyeshadows in Gold Sand and Copper, and make them pop with generous lashings of mascara. Finish off the look by layering on the new Miss Sicily lipstick — yes, it's bright yellow but it wears as a lip topper — to add a flash of lit dewiness over your base colour. Tip: Pair it with the collection's other Miss Sicily in Angela, a bright tangerine orange, for the ultimate tan-enhancing summer lippie. BTW, if you also want your nails to be cute AF for all those beachside cocktail-holding Latergrams, then be sure to have 'em on point in the collection's glossy shades of orange, red or mint. Now live the vacay life and viva Italiana like a modern day Sophia Loren.
