SLA Sunlight, S/S 2011 Collection

A few months ago we introduced you to Serge Louis Alvarez's gorgeous flagship store in Balmain where we were introduced to their new organic ECOCERT products which come in refillable compacts in an attempt to reduce waste. Fashion forward and always on trend, SLA have just launched their Spring/Summer collection, Sunlight for warm, balmy days and hot summer nights. "The colours that I have used illuminate the face and reflect pure gold. Lips are sensuous and very feminine for all occasions," says founder and international makeup artist Mr. Alvarez.

Sunlight collection contains new products:
Pre-Makeup Base is a silicone based primer with a lightweight and non-oily texture. This nifty makeup primer moisturises the skin and prepares skin for long lasting make up. Thanks to gold pigments of
pearl, sunlight pre make up base brings glow to the skin.
Tip: Apply Sunlight Pre-Makeup Base on clean skin before the foundation and apply with a sponge with smoothing moves from the center of the face outwards. Do not forget to prep around the eyes!

Eyelid Fixing Base allows eye makeup to remain stable all day and night. It prepares the eyelid to receive the eye makeup by keeping eyelids soft and smooth. Containing beeswax it protects the precious eye area skin from damaging effects. Eye shadows and loose dusts will become incredibly long lasting.
Tip: Take a small quantity of products and apply with lightweight dabbing around the eyes and over the eyelids. Be sure to know that a little goes a long way and too much could mean extra creased shadow application.

Duo & Trio Box Eyes introduces six new vibrant shades of blues, oranges and golds to the line. Now sold in refills to tie in with SLA's environmental philosophy, they can fit either a two-pan or three-pan compact palette. These wonderful eye shadows are so highly pigmented that you will find few brands on the market who can match the true pigment colour that these shadows produce. To accentuate and complete the eye makeup SLA has created a liquid eye liner with a very fine tip. Tip: Apply eye shadow with a sable hair brush. The different shades available compliment one another and allows for blending in to other colours available in the collection from day wear to a smoky evening look.

Duo Gloss is a brand new product and comes in two GORGEOUS colour collections, Precious Rose and Precious Orange. How hot is purple right now? It is everywhere!
Tip: To create sensuous lips first draw the line with a lip pencil and complete by applying Duo Gloss with a lip brush.

And there you have it Beautettes - SLA's gorgeous new Sunlight collection which is conveniently available in time for summer and available from their flagship store in Balmain, selected salons nationally and online at
