The range includes Strictly Look Book make-up palettes showcasing Strictly themes Latin, Beautiful and Stunning; Strictly Beautiful Lip Gloss Trio; Strictly Fab-u-lous The Lip Gloss Collection; Strictly Fab-u-lous The Nail Colour Collection; Strictly Fab-u-lous The Eye Colour Collection; a clever multipurpose Strictly Stunning Face & Body Bronzing Collection; False Eyelash Gift and Strictly Fab-u-lous Large Cosmetics Palette. They’ve also conjured up some very stylish ways to prep and party, the Strictly Latin Evening Clutch bag with cosmetics, Strictly Beautiful Dressing Table Gift and the Strictly Fab-u-lous Cosmetics Case.
Lisa Armstrong creates the overall make-up direction and individual looks for each of the dancers and guest celebrities taking part in the show, which involves months of preparation. When designing the Strictly Make-up Collection she distilled the show’s key make-up elements into every day, resulting in wearable make-up using premium textures, high quality pigment and colour-true formulas. Ideal for the daytime but also perfect for raising the glamour stakes, making you look and feel, as Craig Revel-Horwood would say, simply “FAB-U-LOUS”!
THE STRICTLY LINE UP
Lisa Armstrong says, “When you think of the ballroom you think of elegance and sophistication. This subtle array of colours gives a timeless Hollywood feel that will capture the essence of glamour. It’s a flawless movie star look that every woman wants to recreate. The make-up colour selection works in perfect harmony. Complementary shades for eyes in soft golds and chocolate browns work with berry-coloured lip glosses. Always perfect your eye shadow by keeping it understated and well blended. The cheeks can glow with warmth and the lips can shine with style. This palette of colours will result in a Strictly Beautiful look.”
Adopt a no rules approach; this look can be as subtle or as daring as you want. Mix and match the eye shadow colours to bring out the inner you, or keep it soft and shimmering with just one colour. Experimenting is the key to becoming your sexy stunning self.”
Make your lips dazzle on the dance floor with these three
beautiful facetted lip glosses, reminiscent of the ballroom glitter ball.
Three versatile shades will take you from day to night and beyond.
The prefect stocking filler! Contains: 3 Lip Glosses in shades: Crystal, Jitter Bug and Limelight
Strictly Fab-u-lous The Eye Colour Collection – £16.00
It’s time to step up the pace with this Strictly FAB-U-LOUS Eye Colour collection. Lisa says “These liquid liners, pencils and glitter pens will help you to create gorgeous, on trend diverse looks. The colours have been adapted to ensure any look is possible, whatever the occasion. Stick to the soft creamy pencils for a wash of colour on the eyes or vamp it up by adding the glitter pens over the top. Be daring and bold when trying the coloured liners to achieve a statement look.
Keep the liner close to the lash line for a sweep of colour or thicken the line and create a flick at the outer corner for a more demure feel. Bring your lashes to life with a brush of mascara. Layering is key to impressing; build up your eye pencils, glitters and liners to reveal a unique FAB-U-LOUS YOU!”
