Get the fiercely feline look from the Chanel cruise 2018 show
Have eyeliner, will vogue
A swanky Mediterranean fête was the order of the day for this year's Chanel cruise show held at the Grand Palais in France. But while the models were swanning about in gilt-trimmed Grecian-inspired accessories with the occasional flowing toga-esque ensemble, it was their strikingly winged peepers that have us beauty folks leaning out of our seats. Boldly traced on the lower lash line with a pointed accent on the inner corners and stretched with a drawn out flick, this is a look we dub 'the everyday eyeliner 2.0'. Accompanied by satin-toned eyes, healthy skin kissed with a hint of sun and lips in a just-bitten hue, this is facepaint even Aphrodite would be hard-pressed not to rock.
Add in wispy, piece-y hair to frame the face and a braided headband, and this is your go-to summer beauty look:
Make sure your makeup canvas is well moisturised by using the La Solution 10 de Chanel and prep with the Hydra Beauty Micro Gel. Apply the Les Beiges Healthy Glow foundation and cover up blemishes with the Correcteur Perfection long lasting concealer. Touch up the skin around the eyes with the Éclat Lumière pen to brighten your peepers, and then finish with a dusting of Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Colour on the cheeks.
Get that shimmery 'your-lids-but-better' look with the Ombre Premiere eyeshadow in the shade Sable N°28. For the eyeliner, you'll need three products: The Ombre Premiere in Noir Satin N°26, the Stylo Waterproof pencil in Noir Intense, and the Ligne Graphique de Chanel liquid eyeliner in Noir-Noir. First draw with the automatic pencil liner, then layer on with the liquid liner before patting on the powder shadow; this way, your eyeliner won't budge as the different textures grip onto each other to prevent smearing. Plus, you'll get an intensified blacker-than-black finish. Top it off with generous coats of the Le Volume de Chanel mascara.
Slick on Rogue Coco in Michèle N°468, which has an ultra-hydrating formula for a creamy yet lightweight sensation that keeps your lips nourished, and you're good to go.
