3 Steps to an effortless glow with Chanel’s summer collection

With colours reminiscent of a shimmering desert oasis, Chanel’s summer beauty treats will help you achieve that coveted summer glow in a breeze

#1: Let the eyes sparkle

After your skin has been prepped, give life to the eyes with the Exclusive Creation Empreinte du Désert, a limited edition eyeshadow palette by Chanel. This palette features four eyeshadows with soft, silky textures. Have fun experimenting with the colours—depending on your summer getup for the day, you could opt for the warmer tones of copper brown and golden beige, or keep it cool with the earthy hues of brown and khaki green.

Complete the look with the Stylo Yeux Waterproof pencil, which can be used as eyeliner to give further definition to the eyes. We love the Oasis shade, a chic, refreshing emerald green. If you love a sultry statement eye, use the pencil to colour in the eyelids in a deeper hue. After that, give your peepers the perfect finishing touch with the help of Le Volume de Chanel Waterproof in Mirage, a mascara in a beautiful metallic copper brown shade.


#2: Get your glow on

Consider the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour your beauty kit essential for the season. A key step in getting the effortless desert-rose glow, contour and highlight with this versatile powder—the lightweight texture sits comfortably on the skin, giving your look a sheer, natural finish.


#3: Paint a pretty pout

We love a good lipgloss, and one of our favourites has to be the Chanel Lévres Scintillantes. For summer, the gloss arrives on our shore in six gorgeous limited edition shades—think a lush sunset of gleaming pinks, coral and auburn. Tanami, Adenium and Rouge Désert flaunts a luscious, glossy finish, while Sirocco, Sahara and Dzhari will give your lips a lovely iridescent shimmer. A refined formulation also means the well-loved gloss now boasts a more comfortable and moisture-rich texture. 

The Chanel Summer Collection 2016 is now available at all Chanel boutiques and counters nationwide.
