Estée Lauder Rolls Out Fuschia Now Collection
Taking cues from the spring runways, Estée Lauder’s new, limited edition Fuchsia Now Color
Collection features a palette of bold colors combined with soft neutrals. Pairing warm honey and tender peach shades with vibrant fuchsia, the look aims to flatter every skin tone. Cheeks bloom with a hint of fresh color, while eyes allure in shades of deep indigo and rich earth tones. Lips are full, soft and lustrous and are enhanced by perfectly polished nails in complementary shades. Soft petal designs, featured in the collection’s powder compact and eye shadow palettes, highlight the vibrant fuchsia touches and reinforce the season’s upbeat and lighthearted mood.
