‘My new collection – By Terry Hippy Chic Summer Collection 2018 is inspired by my summer holidays spent in Ibiza when I was young. Days were spent languishing idly by the sea, soaking up the sun in the golden sand, or strolling around the town and taking pleasure in the kaleidoscopic colors…’’ – Terry de Gunzburg
By Terry Hippy Chic Summer Collection 2018 is all about the bohemian glamour of Ibiza, with 70s summer vibes reimaged and designed into a chic and effortless collection, which sees vibrant shades capturing dazzling sunsets and electro music beats. Channeling Ibiza’s bright atmosphere, the collection celebrates the island’s paradisiacal beauty and carefree, hippy spirit. I am reviewing the By Terry Hippy Chic Summer Collection 2018 which includes By Terry Sun Designer Palettes – Happy Chic and Happy Sun, and By Terry Twist-On Lip Dual Lipstick in 8 shades.
Sun Designer Palette – Hippy Chic & Happy Sun
The ultimate makeup kit essential, the bestselling sun designer palette is here in two beautiful editions. There are two addictive harmonies which have been created to give an all-over, radiant, sun-kissed look for both fair and tanned complexions. Both the hybrid palettes feature six elegant and sparkling shades, playing the roles of bronzer, blush, and highlighter, which work to enhance the skin’s overall appearance.
The formula is delicate, soft, and has airy texture in both matte and satin finishes that allow for contouring and brightening key features, correct or intensify the complexion, all the while revealing splendor golden tan. Thes beautiful silky sun-kissed shades can be applied and layered on all skin types, and blend in perfectly. It can be applied all over the face or directly to the areas of your face upon which sun would naturally fall, to instantly reveal the most beautiful radiant complexion. Application tips for both the palettes, based on the composition of shades is below:
Happy Chic – Sun Designer Palette
Happy Chic is a blush focussed palette with pearly pink highlight, radiant peachy pink blush, matte pale pink, glowing coral blush, shimmery beige, matte fuchsia shades. For a warm, sunny complexion, apply the blush shades (right hand side of the palette) to the cheekbones before applying the shimmery shades (left hand side of the palette) to the key areas of the face, including the higher cheekbones, eyebrow bone and bridge of the nose, using an angled blush brush. For a healthy glow, blend the shiny and matte shades together and apply to the cheekbones using the angled blush brush.
Happy Sun – Sun Designer Palette
Happy Sun is a bronzer focussed palette with champagne beige highlighter, luminous tan highlighter, glowing beige highlighter, matte brown contour/bronzer, matte cafe au lait shade, and matte peachy coral tan tone shades. For an all-over bronzed, matte finish, blend the three shades on the right-hand side of the palette together using a powder brush or a kabuki brush focusing on key areas including the forehead, cheekbones, chin, and neck. For a glamorous and dewy finish, apply the shinier shades on the left-hand side of the palette to the key areas of the face, including the higher cheekbones, bridge of the nose and eyebrow bone.
Both the palettes are housed in streamlined chevron emblazoned compacts with a generously sized mirror. I am absolutely in love with the Sun Designer Palette’s, the powder is very finely milled, pigmented, and blends in so nicely into the skin. Each palette is perfect for creating a full face look. Happy chic palette – from the highlighter to the blush shades, from the matte shades to the radiant and shimmery shades, they all blend in perfectly to give a beautiful lit-from-within glow and flush. Happy Sun palette is perfect for the sun-kissed look with the most natural and radiant warmth.
