Aveda Heart Lands limited edition Autumn makeup collection
Inspired by winter berries and shimmering patinas, Aveda’s new Autumn Winter collection captures all the beauty of that just-in-from-the-cold complexion with flushed cheeks and just-bitten lips. This new, limited edition range is made up of six velvety-rich eye shadows, two nourishing lip liners, two defining eye pencils and a duo of smoothing lip colours and rehydrating lip glazes. Dark, berry lips is the signature look for Autumn Winter so I was excited to try Aveda’s new lip products to recreate the look for myself.
I first lined my lips with the Aveda nourish-mint lip liner in Plum Petals to give my lips a defined edge which is always important when preparing to use a vibrant, intense lip colour. The lip pencil was really smooth and precise to use, making it quick and simple to line my lips ready for the lipstick. I then took a lip brush and applied the smoothing lip colour in Sweet Plum all over my lips and was in love with the colour the moment I started to use it. It is a beautiful rich berry hue with a slight rosy-pink tone to it, making it a very wearable, warm colour to choose. The finish is intense with a slight sheen. To complete the look I chose Aveda nourish-mint rehydrating lip glaze in Winterberry to give my lips a supple, decadent finish. This gloss is incredible and pigmented enough to create your own berry lips when worn alone. The deep-purple gloss has an iridescent sheen to it laced with vibrant, violet flecks that really enhance the lips and lasts a good few hours – ideal for adding some extra glamour for your evening time makeup look this winter.
