Thanks to a submission by a reader, I saw this breathtaking advertisement with a beautiful natural in the June 2012 issue of BEAUTY the Guide magazine. Honestly, I was totally surprised to see this image and I wanted to know more about its source. Here’s the scoop: BEAUTY the Guide is “an editorial digital magazine that covers the world of beauty, skincare and fragrance from a global perspective. Readers will find an intelligent and in-depth approach to beauty explaining the trends, the innovations and the concepts behind the season’s biggest launches”.
This Elizabeth Arden advertisement announces a new line of eyeshadow colors. What makes these eyeshadows unique, you wonder? These eyeshadows are “rich in retinyls and antioxidant Vitamin Cs and Es”. The tagline for this advertisement reads, “beautiful always looks you in the eye”.
The naturalista featured in this advertisement is so striking for several reasons – her gorgeous twist-out, her beautiful eyes, and her bright colored-jacket. UPDATE: After doing some research, I found out that this model is international fashion model Wakeema Hollis (AKA Hollis). Check out her blog Hollistics.
I take my (imaginary) hat off to the brains behind this Elizabeth Arden advertisement.
