Beauty may well be in the eye of the beholder but no-one can deny the universal appeal of the scintillating new spring color collection by Napoleon Perdis. The Sydney- and LA-based beauty brand is revamping its signature eye shadow collection with enriching formulations and kaleidoscopic shades-and there literally is something for everyone. The vast repertoire of knock-out hues, with spirited names like Ruby Slippers, Lilac Maniac and Back to the Fuchsia, will transform your look and your makeup routine. ?It's eye candy,? says Napoleon Perdis, in references to his 26 new Color Discs and five new Loose Eye Dusts, ?and every woman needs some of that.? In addition to the rapturous colors, your lids will thank you for the double dose of hydration that comes with every application of product. All the multitasking color pots are paraben-free and suitable for all skin types.
Loose Dust Eye Shadows ($35 each)
"It's easy to lust after this dust." -Napoleon Perdis
A highly pigmented loose powder in a canister that dispenses just the right amount of product each time. Start in the closed position, shake lightly and open to release. The sifter mechanism measures out enough shadow for one application. Dust or pat onto the eyes, cheeks or even body for brilliant shimmering highlights. The vivid results last from dust till dawn. Mineral Oil and Lauroyl Lysine condition the skin.
Napoleon's Insider Tip: Prep lids with a concealer for all day staying-power. Using the tapered shadow brush, dust the color on lids to create an eye-brightening effect. If using a shade on cheeks or body, use a large powder brush for a gorgeous finish. Blend with a clear gloss to create show-stopping lip shades.
Color Disc Eye Shadows ($29 each)
"Color beyond a shadow of a doubt."-Napoleon Perdis
From sheer to dramatic, matte to shimmer, this eye-popping collection comes in 50 blendable shades to be worn alone or mixed for endless color possibilities. The superlative range of pressed colors is a boon to both makeup professionals and novices. Expect top-notch color payoff on lids, brows and cheeks. Mineral Oil and Lauroyl Lysine condition the skin.
Napoleon's Insider Tip: Before applying to lids, prep the base with a concealer to guarantee color longevity. Always use an eye shadow brush to evenly distribute onto the eyes for minimal fallout.
Napoleon Perdis picked up his first makeup brush at the age of 13 to help his glamorous mother primp for a soiree. Since then the self-taught makeup artist has long dreamed of spreading his glamour gospel. A native of Sydney, Australia, and now based in Los Angeles, Perdis has always sought to demystify makeup, and transform runway and red carpet trends to reality. The Napoleon Perdis philosophy is not dictated by fashion: it's about accenting your natural beauty with confidence-building products. Last year, in addition to taking his company global, the leading artist launched a new line exclusively for Target, NP Set. Perdis is also still an in-demand makeup artist. Since its unveiling in the U.S., the brand has attracted celeb fans including Jessica Szohr, AnnaLynne McCord, Lindsay Lohan, Leighton Meester, Debra Messing, Jessica Lowndes, Shenae Grimes, Melissa George, Amanda Bynes and Hilary and Hayley Duff among others.
