Inspired by soft, seaside hues, the collection is awash in pastels of pink, coral, violet and blue. Infusions of heavier grays and greens intermix with velvety tones to create warm spring/summer looks.
“Sea Blossoms brings beauty at the beach back to life inspired by coral reef technicolors on shimmering skin paired with soft aquatic pastels,” says Janell Geason, global makeup artist for Aveda. “The look suggests an easy, seventies at the beach feel.”
Aveda Petal Essence Eye Color Trios provide crease-resistant color with aromatic flower waxes of jasmine and geranium to create a petal-soft texture that builds and blends effortlessly. The silky, lightweight formula applies evenly and sets beautifully to deliver color that remains true throughout the day and is delicately scented with a whisper of floral aroma. Available in two limited-edition shades as part of the Sea Blossoms Collection: Sea Grass and Violet Coast (US$24).
Aveda Nourish-mint Lip formulas are infused with plant and fruit waxes to smooth fine lines, hydrate and plump lips.

Two limited-edition shades will launch as part of the collection: Star Coral (full color) and Oyster Pink (sheer) (US$16).
Nourish-mint Rehydrating Lip Glaze glides on smooth for immediate, even color with a satin shine. These glazes are carmine-free∗ and are available in two shades as part of the new collection: Beach Thistle and Coral Sea (US$18).
Petal Essence Face Accents is a petal-smooth face color trio that creates the perfect blush, flush, bronze or highlight. Formulated without parabens, talc, or mineral-oil, it is available in one shade as part of the Sea Blossoms Collection: Shimmer Shell (US$24).
