Winter Collection: Chanel

Collection: ILLUSIONS D’OMBRES DE CHANEL Collection for Fall 2011

Products Used:
Les 4 Ombres in Predlude 33 $57.00
Levres Scintillantes Glossimer in Braise $28.50

How To: I used the lightest shade in the quad – a shimmery bone hue – from lash line to brow bone. I mixed the two medium brown shades together to create a rich chestnut hue and swept all over the lid. I lightly brushed the darkest brown in the crease and under the lower lash line. I went back and added a bit more of the shimmery bone shade to the brow bone for emphasis. (P.S. I really love this Chanel winter eye – the colors are rich and sultry and universally glam).and For the lips, I used the “burnt red” sheer gloss for a wash of color without overdosing on pigment.

Did You Know: Apply additional layers of the gloss to make lips appear darker. You can also layer over a red lippy for a combination of matte red and glossy brick (it makes a gorge color).
There is another gloss in the collection that I am pretty obsessed with – Levres Scintillantes Glossimer in Pampille, a sheer seashell hue (pictured below). Use when going for the classic dark eyes/ light lips combo.

*Unless otherwise noted, face makeup is: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in #6; RMS Beauty “Un”Cover-Up in #22. Brows are Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel in Espresso. Mascara is Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara in Deep Black.
