Look at this video of the making of the Chanel Spring Summer 2017 Couture Collection. Their skills are breathtaking. Here’s the link enjoy.
To create this simple yet oh so beautiful makeup look, firstly prep the skin with Chanel’s incredible Hydra Beauty Micro Gel Yeux for the eye area and La Solution 10 De Chanel. The La Solution 10 from Chanel is quite possibly the most beautiful hydrating lotion. It’s perfect for sensitive skin. It has 10 carefully selected ingredients, each selected for its potent skin loveliness. At the center of the formula lies the rare and precious Silver Needle Tea. Which really smooths and it’s super anti-oxidantsing.
For the skin use Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation, this perfect foundation leaves your skin healthy looking and best of all is has full sun protection, so no need for a separate SPF. Use the Eclat Lumiere highlighter pen as your highlight, this is the perfect highlighter as it’s not sparkly just leaves your skin beautifully glowing. If you have any blemishes cover them up using Correcteur Perfection.
Foe the super simple eye just use the Les 4 Ombres Codes Elégants No274, which is part of the Spring/Summer Collection. I would use the biggest eyeshadow brush you have and and just give a single swipe of the darkest colour and then highlight the centre with the golden colour in the centre where your pupil would be if your eye were open. The brows are defined using La Palette Sourcils De Chanel, they are quite heavily defined but alway remember to brush them out after filling them in so they don’t look stuck on.
For the cheeks use Joues Contrast Elégance No370 powder blush, agin from the 2017 Spring/Summer Collection. Used from the apple of the cheek and applied sort of downwards to really give a fresh wash of colour to your complexion. This gives you a really youthful glow. Perfect really.
Then for the lips it’s nude all the way, I love this nude colour it has enough punch so you can see it but will not fight with anything else on the face. Pure simplicity! It’s from the Rouge Allure Velvet collection so it kind of matte but really hydrating and soft and beautiful. It’s called Libre no62, COCO Codes and is also part of the Spring/Summer Collection.
Then finally for nails they were prepped with La Base, the perfect nude shade is Le Vernis Longue Tenue, Organdi No504 and Le Gel Coat was applied on top to give them lasting power.
All of the Spring/Summer collection is in stores now or available online here.
