Into the Woods: Collection Les Automnales by Chanel

Meet Fall’s most luscious colours

Into the Woods: Collection Les Automnales by Chanel
Chanel brings forest fantasy to life in its new showcase of lush, earthy shades and beautiful textures inspired by nature’s finest

I'm seriously considering the possibility of the Chanel Makeup Creation Studio team spending an impressive number of hours in the great outdoors - painstakingly studying every shade of earth and bark, moss and foliage to come up with a collection this stunning, and well thought out.   

For starters, this luscious limited edition eye palette deserves it's very own close up. Composed of five matte-satin shades ranging from golden beiges and bronze to deep browns and copper, these colours were inspired by the lunaria, planetree leaf, acorn, chestnut peel and helleborus flower as a tribute to the ever changing tones of the stunning Autumn landscape. And that beautiful graphic stamp is reminiscent of Cistercian stained glass, a motif believed to have inspired Mademoiselle Chanel to design the iconic double C of for the House - now how's that for detail?

And it's okay to secretly want that Giselle-worthy glow without working for it. Gently sweep this willow catkin- and eucalyptus leaf-inspired shade across the cheeks for a delicate sheen with a subtle hint of shimmer to warm your complexion and enhance your features - hello cheekbones!

Now for (hopefully) the toughest decision you'll make today: picking from a selection of flaming red lip offerings that are equally intense with a satin-matte, semi-sheer finish that's perfect for day or night.

Saving the best for last is my favourite nature-inspired story from the collection - nail colours with a flash of illumination inspired by a bird's iridescent plumage - in this case, the ocellated turkey feather that resulted in this deep flamboyant, high-shine red that gets you ready for just about anything life throws your way - nature walks and forest hikes included.
