If there’s one beauty brand that understands truly sexy makeup, it’s Dolce&Gabbana Beauty. Their new collection, Summer Shine, focuses on bold yet elegant colors and the seductiveness of bare, sun-kissed skin…and after a winter that felt like it would never end, we are totally ready to be transported to a dreamy summer island covered in blue flowers.

Observe the official makeup look of Dolce&Gabbana Beauty’s Summer Shine collection, and fall in love.

This look is everything we want our summer beauty look to be: intense, sexy, unexpected. And we have the exclusive Summer Shine behind-the-scenes video, starring model Vittoria Ceretti. You can’t watch it anywhere else!

Want to get this look? Of course you do. Let’s investigate the Summer Shine collection!


Because amazing skin is truly a warm weather essential, Vittoria’s was prepped with the Dolce&Gabbana Aurealux Mask ($169), which fades lines and gives you deliciously hydrated, plump skin in just 10 minutes. Afterwards, her skin was protected from the sun with Essential UV Cream ($83), which contains a broad spectrum SPF.

We’re especially in love with the glowy complexion showcased in this look. The Illuminator in the all new, slightly sparkly shade of Luna is layered over top The Blush in Apricot for a look that’s as radiant as it is sexy.


This smoky-eyed look created in shades of brown and light blue is the perfect way to update a classic. The brand new Eyeshadow Duo in Summer Hue—shimmery sky blue beside intense matte fuchsia—was paired with deeper shades from The Eyeshadow Quad in Brown Blush. This quad’s four all-new eye colors (two browns, a nude and a pink) can be worn wet or dry, creating a palette that is both versatile and elegant. Here, the darkest brown of the quad is used along Vittoria’s top and bottom lash lines and blended out for an intensely sexy, soft look.

Lips and nails.

Vittoria is wearing Shine Lipstick in Shine On, a dreamy pale orange with golden shimmer. The Summer Shine collection also includes the unique Light Blue Shine Lipstick (an iridescent sky blue shimmer) and Sheer (a vibrant, transparent red).

Dolce&Gabbana Nail Lacquer is famous for its beautiful color, perfect rounded brush and chip-resistant formula. This summer, nails are short and rounded, worn with polish colors that are both light and bright. Light Blue, the key shade, is the shimmery pale blue of a Mediterranean sky. Peachy, a pastel orange, looks beautiful against shimmery bronzed skin. Sheer (worn by Vittoria in the print campaign) is the same shade of transparent yet intense red as the signature shade of Shine Lipstick. Finally, Nude Lilac is a delicate, oh-so-pale purple that manages to be striking and natural at the same time.
