Authentic Beauty Collection by Christie Brinkley

I’ve received sample products to facilitate my post, but all opinions are my own.

We’ve all heard the admonition to not judge a book by its cover, but there is something to be said for beautiful packaging.  Christie Brinkley’s Authentic Beauty Collection is just elegantly gorgeous from the outside in!

The beauty doesn’t stop with the luxurious-looking reflective rose gold packaging. The products inside have a high-quality feel to them as well. The best part is that the collection is actually quite affordable.

I’m sure most of you know Christie Brinkley as a supermodel, from back in the day when models weren’t chosen from the amount of Instagram followers they’d acquired. Ye Olden Times. She’s still utterly lovely and has turned her career to a skincare line, which she has now expanded with her Authentic Beauty makeup collection.

The line features prestige versions of all of the beauty basics women of any age might need, and the color palette is in a classic range that will be sophisticated and well-suited for a wide variety of skin tones and styles.
