Getting Gisele's glow: Chanel Les Beiges

Natural gets a new look

The Chanel Les Beiges collection gives you the pretty and healthy glow you crave, minus the fuss

With Gisele Bündchen as the face of the Les Beiges collection, the message is clear: sporting a natural tan and little else, Bundchen is the epitome of 'less is more' beauty.

Chanel's Les Beiges collection simplifies your daily makeup routine, offering you radiance within reach. Forget that Kardashian clan over-contouring, the buzz words are 'healthy', 'fresh' and 'radiant'.

The new Healthy Glow Multicolour Marinière palette now comes in alternating stripes — a tribute to Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel taking inspiration from sailors back in the day. The two shades in each Healthy Glow palette are meant to highlight the high points and enhance contrasts.

Calibrated to complement the palette, the Healthy Glow Sheer Colour Stick is a blush that goes straight from tube to cheeks and can be blended with your fingertips even when you're on the go; leaving little room for error. The pearlescent pigments in the formula deliver radiance with a light, sheer finish.

Rounding off the collection, the Moisturising Healthy Glow Lip Balm and Le Vernis are true to its ethos. The super-sheer balm glides on revealing a hint of colour and has the perfect hydrating properties you need in this scorching weather. The nail polish cleverly comes in four shades of beige-nudes, each catering to different skin tones. While we can't all look like Bundchen, the Les Beiges collection makes capturing her sunkissed beauty seem that much easier.
