ALL ABOUT THAT BASE
Underneath any flawless complexion is a perfect primer. D&G’s ‘Secret Veil’ is exactly that. The hydrating radiant primer comes complete with factor SPF 30, so you can ensure your skin is not only evenly toned and hydrated but protected too. Atop ‘Secret Veil’ the new D&G line offers up the delicious liquid foundation, “Gloriouskin’, Perfect for creating a luminous complexion all day long.
MEDITERRANEAN NATURAL BEAUTY
One of the most popular pieces in the beauty line is D&G’s ‘Mediterranean Glow Complex’. According to the house, the product was the result of “nature powered by science,” with natural Sicilian ingredients such as fig extract and organic Italian olive oil with Shiseido’s in-house technology and scientifi know-how, helping every woman to achieve that special Mediterranean summer glow, all year round. For those looking for something a little stronger (think spending a whole summer on the Sicilian coast), there is D&G’s ‘Solar Glow Collection’, consisting of both their ‘Solar Glow Ultra-Light Bronzing Powder’ and the label’s ‘Solar Glow Universal Bronzing Drops’, both perfect for getting that perfect sunkissed look 365 days of the year.
CREATE SOME COLOUR
Once you’ve got that perfect summer glow, finish it off with a little natural rouge. There is something for every skin colour in the latest collection, featuring three strikingly different shades: ‘Blush of Roses’, ‘Dolce Blush’ and ‘Dolce Skin’. According to the label, “the natural hues and lush textures take their inspiration from the Mediterranean’s flower and blooms, offering endless ways to add a touch of healthy, radiant colour.”

The famous adage goes, that the eyes are the “windows to the soul”, something which D&G have not taken lightly with their new offering. There are three new collections for the eye, ‘Intenseyes’, an array of powerful creamy eyeshadow sticks and eyeliners, Passioneyes, the brand’s range of long-wearing waterproof mascaras, and “Felineyes”, D&G’s beautiful palettes in every shade imaginable.
