August’s Marie Antoinette Ephemera extras will be available for purchase on September 1st!
From the August box insert:
August’s Ephemera is inspired by Marie Antoinette, and the 80’s vibe of Sofia Coppola’s film of the same name.
The beautiful label art by Glucose Girl/Miranda Sharp reflects an 80’s inspired Marie, so I thought it would be fun for this month’s box colors to follow in suit. As you know, this is the last Ephemera box, so I’d like to take the time to personally thank you for being a subscriber. While Ephemera is ending, my creativity is not. I will be bringing you many exciting things in the future!
While watching Coppola’s film, I was most aesthetically drawn to the depictions of Marie in her youth, before the extravagance of court life weighed down her radiant natural beauty. As such, the shades in this box are soft and wearable, despite the fact that they may be outside of your comfort zone.
Try using L’Autrichienne as an eyeliner, or an all-over wash of color with Dauphine or Versailles applied over the top. You’ll no longer have straight aqua, but a beautiful and dimensional color shift that reflects the colorful complexity of Versailles. Maria Antonia is a “blush glow”. On pale skintones, an easy to wear blush. On deeper skintones, better as a highlighter.
