So you would think that with two full palettes of nude lipsticks, that would be enough. I thought so – or I’ve been trying to think so as I’ve been trying to use the products I have instead of madly cruising for new ones (a girl can, unfortunately, only carry so much makeup). However! Now I’ve found the new Burberry Lip Mists, and all bets are off.
When one thinks of Burberry, one thinks of trenchcoats, London, and Rosie Huntington Whiteley (well I do anyway). The Burberry makeup range won’t dress you or take you to London but it may take you that little bit closer to Rosie’s look – OK, well some of the way anyway. They do some of the best nude lipsticks I’ve ever found. Lots of nude lipsticks actually make you look dead, by stripping too much colour out of the lips, which can be great to pair with a strong smokey eye but quite frankly, is just not that flattering on most people. What works better is something that enhances the pigment you have in your lips, which is why the Burberry lippies are so great. There is a plethora of natural shades to choose from, so you can find something that makes you look gorgeous, instead of Night of the Living Dead nude.
I am loving the Lip Mist in 213 Field Rose right now, as it IS the colour of my natural lips, but kicked up, ooh maybe half a notch. It’s quite creamy and not too sheer so it sort of fills in the edges and makes my lips look fuller and well, dare I say it, a little bit pouty. Not quite Rosie territory but getting there. I do love a lip product that you can just whack on without thinking about, and this is one of those – effortless gorgeousness.
Burberry have just announced their new line up of English roses for their latest Burberry Beauty campaign – Jourdan Dunn, Cara Delevigne and Edie Campbell.
Having worked with Burberry on and off throughout the years, this is a brand close to my heart. I love their clothes, their ethos of luxe, wearable everyday beauty and the high-end formulations of the products themselves.
Jourdan and Cara are both Burberry regulars, but new to this year’s Burberry Beauty line up is the gorgeous Edie Campbell, who I actually met on her first ever shoot (with Bruce Weber, at the Dorchester, for British Vogue no less. What an impeccable start to a modeling career.) She is just as beautiful in real life as she is in these videos – and her skin! English Rose indeed.
The divine Jourdan Dunn for Burberry Beauty’s new campaign. So loving seeing black women in major beauty ads – and with supermodel Joan Small’s recent spate of covers (I think I can count 5 this month, including Italian and Australian Vogue) finally maybe we’re seeing a significant shift in the representation of all races and skin tones in fashion? Here’s hoping.
When I saw how gorgeous Kate Bosworth looked at last week’s Burberry show at London fashion Week, I had to find out her makeup look. Luckily I know her makeup artist, Florrie White as I used to assist her in London, so Florrie gave me the info on what she used – and now I REALLY have my eyes on some of those yummy Burberry eyeshadows…
“Kate was very relaxed about her make up and let me work to create the “best version of yourself” make up. Kate has a healthy warm Californian skin tone which I evened out with Sheer Foundation in Trench no. 3 and 4, using the lighter shade to even out the complexion and the darker shade to add a little contour over her features. I banished any shadows under and in the inner sockets of her eyes with Sheer Concealer in Light and Soft Beige.
I didn’t need to touch her perfect eyebrows so I concentrated on subtly shading her eyelids with sheer Shadow in Gold Trench all over her lids and then more definition in the outer socket of her eye and under her lower lashes in Chestnut. I brought out her lash more by smudging Eye Definer in Midnight Brown into her
lower lashes then enhanced her top lashes with a soft but solid line across her top lashes. I curled her lashes and then applied 3 coats of mascara in Midnight Black, combing through the lashes afterwards.
A further warm and sunny glow was achieved by applying Fresh Glow to highlight her temples and top of her cheeks and then I swept Warm Glow in Copper Glow over the apples of her cheeks, across the bridge of her nose and over her forehead into her hairline.
I highlighted her Cupid’s bow with Lip Definer in Nude Beige and also on the bottom outer edge of her mouth and the filled it in with a creamy layer of lipstick in Nude Beige.”

Makeup Director Wendy Rowe | Report by Celine Bopp
“Every season for Burberry the girls grace the catwalk with elegance and style, the look is effortlessly beautiful. Makeup Director Wendy Rowe created the look using Burberry’s own make up range. The girls all wore a very well blended light smokey eye using Burberry Eyeshadows in Almond and Taupe brown. A little mascara in Midnight Brown was used on each girl. The skin was kept fresh only given a tiny bit of a warm base where needed using Burberry’s Sheer Foundation. A gentle sculpting was used on the cheek, and Burberrys Lip Cover in a rose shade was applied very sheer on the lips. Absolutely divine.”
London makeup artist Florrie White was looking after the two Victoria’s Secret angels last week, and gave them both bombshell screen siren red pouts, with the help of Burberry Beauty. On Rosie, she used Burberry Lip Definer in Brick Red no 5, and Rosy Red lipstick no. 5. Candice got a mixture of Burberry lipsticks in Union Red no 17, and Hibiscus no 20. Talk about a pair of 1930’s femme fatales!
We all know that Rosie H-W is, quite frankly, a goddess. Whiplash hair, feline eyes, that incredible Victoria’s Secret body. She’s enough to make grown men cry and make Angelina Jolie look like, well a bit of a moose. (Sorry Angelina).
When I saw pictures of her at the Burberry show last week in London, and at Mario Testino’s 1930’s party that night (but more on that later), I had to find out what her makeup look was. So I emailed her makeup artist, Florrie White, for the inside scoop.
As Rosie is the face of Burberry Florrie was able to choose whatever she wanted from the gorgeous new Burberry makeup line (an MM fave, if you hadn’t already gathered), to perfect that already pretty damn near perfect face. Here’s what Florrie used:
Decleor Harmonie Calm and Neroli Oil
Burberry Sheer Foundation in 04/05
Burberry Sheer Concealer no 02
Burberry Warm Glow
Burberry Midnight Brown eye pencil
Burberry Sheer Eyeshadows in Midnight Brown and Chestnut
Love this new Burberry Body ad with the divinely radiant English supermodel, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Shot by Mario Testino, with makeup by Charlotte Tilbury and music by The Feeling, it’s as beautiful as we have come to expect from this legendary British brand.
