Chanels beauty collections rarely disappoint, and this fall seasons offerings are no exception. A sophisticated mix of plums, pinks and greys, the chosen palette would be as beautiful woven into the background of a signature Chanel tweed jacket as it is in your makeup repertoire.
Lids can be swiped with the iridescent Taupe Gris shadow, lined with the dense eggplant-hued Stylo Yeux in Cassis, then accented with the Crayon Kohl in beigey Clair on the inner rim for a wide-eyed effect. The Joues Contraste blush is a deep plum that allows for a sculpted cheek (think Robert Palmer back-up girls) and painting lips the palest pink (with Rouge Coco in Chintz or Levres Scintillantes gloss in Petit Pche) wont distract from them.
Finally, no Chanel collection would be complete without a nail lacquer or two after which you can furiously lust introducing Jade Rose, a sweet baby pink, and Paradoxal, a shimmering greyish violet. And while all this Chanel goodness may be intended for autumnal wear, its unlikely that you’ll be able to resist it until then.
