Dolce & Gabbana The Golden Beams Collection for Holiday 2009

The Golden Beams Collection for Holiday 2009 captures the precious singularity of golden tones with a rare depth and an unexpected eroticism, celebrating three ultra femme variations on golden translucence, anchored by the drama and depth of surreal fantasy. Dolce & Gabbana use captivating contrasts to take beauty to a new level of decadence.

A trio of modern-minded golds – Yellow Gold, White Gold and Rose Gold – glaze, flicker and interact to reveal one sublime look that is at once sexy and glamorous. “Gold has always been a Dolce & Gabbana signature,” notes Stefano Gabbana. “This collection, based on three shades of gold,” adds Domenico Dolce, “encompasses the sensual, natural and romantic nuances of surreal femininity.”

The collection includes supple textures to enchant and seduce with glints of gold from an exclusive palette of glistening to pearly tones. A harmony of effortless precision results in a look that’s irresistibly off balance – and daringly, distinctively Dolce & Gabbana.

A Key “Golden Beams” Look

A seductive shimmer informs a play of matte neutrals and golds to create a complete face of beauty for the Holiday season that is polished and luxurious. The look showcases precious yellow, white and rose gold shades to create provocative, atonal precision.

The eyes are intense, illuminated with a warmth that appears to glow from within. A play of fine metallics lends an ephemeral shimmer and shine to a rich warm patina of matte brown with the new eyeshadow quad in Gold. Featuring the 3 golds gleam, the look is underscored by the mascara in Black while the eyeliner in Gold adds depth and definition.

Cheeks are suffused with soft light with a new shade of the blush in Caramel. Bold red lips in Sparkling, a new shade of the shine lipstick, mirror the luminosity of the eyes with a creamy intensity. The nail laquer in Royal add a subtle sexy finish.

“Golden Beams is full of drama, but it’s a discreet drama,” says Pat McGrath. “The play of opposites-the brown and golds, the matte and shine – is so key; the look is quite daring and evocative-yet also very ladylike, polished and elegant.”

    NGL, I kind of rolled my eyes while reading their description of the collection. It’s gold, it’s pretty, but I didn’t sit there thinking “oh wow, that lipstick has unexpected tones of eroticism” :|

  8. There’s no mascara…which gloss is that?
