I have an amazing announcement today, which my fashion-forward readers are going to love. Renowned designer Michelle Smith, the creator behind the Milly label, has teamed up with Clinique to make one of spring 2011’s prettiest makeup collections. With a groovy, 60s-inspired feel and the beauty of sweet pink, Pretty in Prints will have you feeling more feminine and flirty than ever.
My first tip is to get your hands on the Limited Edition Long Last Glosswear SPF 15 ($18) in Milly Pink. While I currently have about 30 glosses in rotation (if not more) I never ever go without a Long Last Glosswear from Clinique in my collection. It’s my go-to gloss when I need long-lasting shine and constant hydration.
For a lady who wants an elegant and sophisticated, yet trendy and feminine look, definitely go for the Limited Edition Pretty In Prints Compact ($43). It has the perfect blend of pink and neutral eyeshadows plus a blush that’s just the right amount of pink.
Finish off the look with some High Impact Mascara ($18) and you’ll be ready to go. The best part? Michelle even designed this adorable pouch to keep your Pretty in Prints products, making them way easier to bring along with you when you’re on-the-go. “The pouch for the Pretty in Prints makeup bag is designed in a signature print from my collection. I travel to Europe several times a year to research the archives of many of the esteemed fabric houses,” says Michelle.
This adorable collection hits Clinique counters this month so keep your eyes peeled for it.
