Aveda SS12 Sea Blossoms Makeup Collection

Looking out at the sea with the sun streaming through the window, it seemed an apt moment to write about Aveda's Sea Blossoms makeup range.
The collection combines peachy coral, oyster pink, soft violet, muted blue and stony grey, some of my favourite colour combinations. Janell Geason, Global Make-up Artist for Aveda explains "Sea Blossoms brings beauty at the beach back to life - inspired by coral reef technicolours on shimmering skin, paired with soft aquatic pastels" Yummy!

I am currently loving the Petal Essence Eye Color Trios (£21.00), using the Sea Grass trio; I sweep the pink across my lids and blend the brown to the outer corners for a subtle day style and for higher impact add the dark navy shade along my lash lines. Normally I steer clear of dark blue eye shadows and liners, opting for the black and brown palate but the shade gives a smoky result and seems to avoid the 90s look!

The Petal Essence Face Accents Trio (£20.00) adds a luminous glow to the complexion and looks gorgeous swept across the cheek bones. I like to team it with a peachy blush like Benefits Coralista to complete the look.

As is standard with Aveda pallets both the eye shadows and face accents come in 'refills' rather than a pretty compact which you can pay for on top.

The Collection features two different lip wares, Nourish-mint Lip formula (£12.00) in Star Coral and a more subtle Oyster Pink. These mint fragranced lipsticks make your lips tingle and are highly pigmented, staying put for hours.

However, I am a bigger fan of the Nourish-mint Rehydrating Lip Glaze (£15.50) which looks like a gloss, giving the lips shine and volume but feels like a balm, no sticky feeling at all. I Love! The Coral Sea shade is a gorgeous peach which is much more me than the Beach Thistle.
