Dolce & Gabbana The Make Up Fall 2009 The Romantic Collection

Inspired by Surrealism, the Dolce & Gabbana A/W 09 runway collection echoes both revolutionary sensibility and rebellious spirit. Just as the Surrealists eschewed the conventional to embrace the unpredictable and explore the unimaginable, Dolce & Gabbana break the rules both on the runway and with a new collection of Make Up for fall, tracing the fine line between dreams and reality to create an innovative glamour that teases and provokes. “We worship the surrealists; they pushed the limits-and proved that anything is possible,” says Stefano Gabbana, “With the Romantic Collection, the idea is to break away from the expected to transform beauty, creating a look that is about ultimate fantasy.”

“And the ultimate luxury,” adds Domenico Dolce, “After all, the ultimate luxury is to dream and, for the Dolce & Gabbana woman, the dream should always be a reality.”

The Romantic Collection showcases tone against tone contrast via a rich new range of pinks-from delicate to vibrant to shocking - with a fresh shimmer to lend natural luminosity. Lustrous new shades share a balance of the sensual and the subversive to embody Dolce & Gabbana signature glamour.

Smooth Eye Colour Quad in Dazzling 160 ($59 USD)

A key “Romantic” Look
Legendary make-up artist Pat McGrath collaborates closely with Dolce & Gabbana to create the beauty look with select Make Up classics paired with brilliant new shades. Explicit and ethereal pinks are imbued with light; deep neutrals are refined and distinctive.

The look lends an air of romance and a sense of intimacy with lucid washes of pure colour and sensuality. A truly feminine aura that’s both suggestive and assertive; the look is exuberant with weightless layering of tone against tone pinks, that coalesce in a seamless elegance that is at once fresh and cool.

Moist, voluptuous lips beckon and seduce - soft-sculpted and defined with Soft, a new shade of the classic lipstick and the lipliner. The same hue adds sophistication to nails, through the new Soft shade of the nail lacquer. Eyes are delicate, yet smoldering with the eyeshadow duo in Rose, enhanced with the mascara in Black. Cheeks appear lightly flushed with the blush in new Delight.

The Romantic Collection is intimate yet ephemeral with a glaze of pinks dissolving into a rush of strong femininity “The Rose palette brings the collection to a new level; Dolce & Gabbana wanted to take risks with colour, texture, mood - and at the same time capture the essence of each element,” says Pat McGrath. “While the focus is on the eyes - very sexy, very daring - the soft voluptuous lips add an intensity that’s erotic. The rose look is very romantic, almost ethereal - yet very sophisticated.”
