With its new collection of easy-to-apply staples, Burberry translates its runway looks into real life makeup for the stylish everywoman

Looking for a beauty line that's hot off the presses? Burberry Beauty brings its Antique Nudes Collection straight off the London runways and into your makeup bag. Inspired by both traditional British beauty and the fabrics used on for its runway, the collection features delicate, muted tones of pink and nude, with the intent of creating soft veils of colour — rather than obvious blocks — when applied. With Burberry Beauty, a rosy, lit-from-within glow is always the end goal, and the colours in this collection achieve that distinctive lightness on the skin, while also defining and outlining your features.
Full Kisses lip pens – Nude Beige, Nude Blush, Nude
The makeup colours not only look great, they keep your lips and skin moisturised, a must for that English Rose dewiness sported by its ambassadors like Suki Waterhouse and Lily James. The newly-launched Liquid Lip Velvet, uses an innovative whipped formula that combines the rich pigment with a non-drying texture to ensure that skin on the lips looks supple and plump, never dry and cracked. The three shades, Pale Nude, Fawn, and Fawn Rose, are new launches for the brand, and each have a bold, velvety finish. We can so picture these soft shades worn with this Spring's florals and velvet smocks. The Antique collection also features Full Kisses in a new shade, Nude Beige, as well as an Eye Colour Contour in Pale Nude. Both products are great for contouring with flesh tones: Think of them as the perfect accessories for attaining the no-makeup makeup look.
Nail colours – Nude pink, stone green, tea rose
The star product for this launch is the Silk and Bloom Blush Palette, and rightfully so. A striking face powder, this is ideal for giving your cheeks a light flush and imbuing the skin with a hint of flattering illumination. And we can't help but go gaga over the pretty, embossed floral and honeycomb design. Top off your beauty look with their new line of high-shine nail polishs, available in Nude Pink and two limited edition shades, Stone Green and Tea Rose. All three are lust-worthy pastels ideal for showing off with your new sandals. Now, looking (and feeling) like you've just stepped off the runway has never been easier.

The Burberry Beauty Antique Nudes collection will be available from February 2017
