Remember a while back when we reported on the rumours about Burberry launching a make-up range? Well finally we can reveal that yes, it’s true, Burberry make-up is happening and it hits Harrods very soon! Everything from foundation to brushes to lip liner will exist in the Burberry ‘signature trench’ inspired range and as the first designer British make-up range, it’s the most anticipated make-up collection since Dolce and Gabbana announced their entry into the cosmetics world. Burberry Beauty ‘is completely integrated with everything else we do with the brand and with the company. It started because I felt that, at shows and the shoots, the whole attitude is epitomized through the shoes, the bags, the clothes, the accessories, but then the face was the one thing I really struggled with. When we were doing make-up, I felt like we weren't able to get the right attitude. It was either caked-on makeup or then just the wrong colours or tones. I wanted it to be this kind of effortless elegance’ said Christopher Bailey, chief creative officer for Burberry. So if you can, picture beige trench toned and that infamous check patterned packaging housing muted, natural, gorgeous make-up. We can’t wait!
