Fans of Chanel Les Beiges line we'll be glad to know that the brand is introducing a liquid foundation into the mix

Is the natural look an actual look? We would all like to think looking as effortlessly glamorous as Gisele Bündchen comes naturally, but the truth is the nude, no-makeup face takes quite a bit of effort — think moisturisers, concealers and foundations. And if your face ends up looking a little too powdered and flat after that — you'll need some luminiser and contouring makeup to create light and subtle shade.

Sounds complicated? Chanel takes the guesswork out of the process with the Les Beiges range with a collection of sheer powders, stick blushers and even nude nail polishes that takes flesh tones to the next level of chic. 

Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation

The newest addition, the Healthy Glow Foundation, is an enhancing makeup product that has all the latest optical innovations in one simple product. With a kalanchoe extract — the plant is known for its ability to adapt to different climates — to boost its hydrating and antioxidant properties, the new foundation also has an SPF25 for optimal sun protection. Can being natural be as easy as applying one product to enhance our skin? We hope so. Just apply this with your fingertips, for a sheer finish that's been subtly mattified, cleverly mimicking an outdoor glow. No one will have to know its makeup.

$82. Available in 6 shades in Singapore. At Chanel counters and stores from 8 Jan 2016
