Summertime is all about natural, yet glistening sun-kissed skin. Tinted moisturizers, illuminating powders, baked bronzers, cream-based eyes shadows, and glossy lipsticks have become necessities that direct current summer makeup trends. In search of finding the best products on the market worldwide, I came across the German luxury cosmetic line, Horst Kirchberger. To say their products embody long-lasting wear and superior quality would be an understatement. I used a number of Horst Kirchberger cosmetics on a recent 15-hour outdoor fashion campaign – the makeup held from 8AM until 11PM! Least to say, the Horst Kirchberger line should be explored by not only soon-to-be summer brides, but also by everyday women looking for long-lasting quality makeup. Throughout their entire line, 3 products in particular stood out as must-haves:
Luminizing Powder: This velvety soft highlighter has a silky texture that applies effortlessly and ensures a radiant complexion. To apply, sweep the pressed powder along the top of the cheekbones. For a more luminous all-over look, lightly apply to the entire face after applying tinted moisturizer, foundation, and/or concealer. This is a perfect product for summer bridal makeup. For best results, apply using a Horst Kirchberger powder brush.
Bronzing Powder Diamond: Bronzing the skin is only one value this product serves. It also performs as a luxurious hydrating powder formulated with hyaluronic acid – a powerful cosmeceutical ingredient that protects the skin from environmental factors and prevents early signs of aging. Apply to the entire face and neck using the Horst Kirchberger powder brush over base makeup or directly onto the skin for a super natural sun-kissed look. As an added benefit, Bronzing Powder Diamond is also free of parabens.
Vibrant Shine Lipstick: This lipstick embodies summer. It comes available in 8 semi-transparent and fresh summer tones – leaving the lips with a more sheer, natural, and fresh lip color. Vibrant Shine Lipstick is specially formulated with SPF 15 for summer wear – protecting against premature signs of aging and damage caused by the sun’s UVA/UVB rays. For a longer-lasting lip, apply Horst Kirchberger lipliner to the entire lip prior to applying Vibrant Shine Lipstick.
Whether you are picking up these beautifully packaged products for your own personal summer makeup collection or getting these as a gift for a special someone, you will not be disappointed. Horst Kirchberger cosmetics can be purchased directly via the company’s website at: www.kirchberger-beauty.de
