CHANEL CRUISE COLLECTION 2018
Brown Thomas Beauty lounge hosted the new ÉCLAT ET TRANSPARENCE DE CHANEL with the team and the lead make-up artist from Chanel UK.
The essence is by sculpting colours, textures and effects; Lucia Pica imagines a summer makeup that highlights your every movement with all the nuances of shifting sensuality.
ÉCLAT ÉNIGMATIQUE Exclusive Creation. Limited edition.QUADRA EYESHADOW
A palette of four natural, luminous colours to make your eyes sparkle: a satin ivory, a charcoal grey, a coppery brown and a brick red. Although intense in the palette, the four natural colours glide on with a sheer finish to delicately tint your eyelids. Limited edition. Swept across the eyelid or along the base of your lashes, worn alone or layered together, the pale, pearlescent shades illuminate, while the darker shades add depth and definition for an intense and mysterious gaze. Limited edition.
How to use
This harmony is composed of: – two medium shades, a charcoal grey and a coppery brown, to blend together or apply in contrast, – a brick red shadow to intensify, sculpt or add depth, – a satin ivory shade to illuminate the eyes and make them look wide open. Each of the eyeshadows can be used on its own. For intense eyes, blend several shades together.
PALETTE ESSENTIELLE ÉTÉ2-IN-1 PALETTE: HIGHLIGHTER – LIP AND CHEEK COLOUR
The summer version of the PALETTE ESSENTIELLE. A 2-in-1 palette to highlight the face and embellish it with colour in just a few strokes. A perfect colour trio for easy makeup application at any time of day. Two highlighters to enhance areas of the face that catch the light. One bright red to accentuate cheekbones or tint the lips. Your complexion is revived and your face glows with beauty.
How to use
➀-➁ HIGHLIGHTER Apply one of the two highlighters (➀ or ➁) to areas of the face that catch the light (cheekbones, bridge of the nose, Cupid’s bow). For an even more radiant complexion, apply highlighter ➀ to entire face. For additional shimmers of light, apply highlighter ➁ to the inner corners of the eyes and on eyelids. ➂ LIP AND CHEEK COLOUR Apply a touch of colour to your cheekbones and lips. You can apply the colours of the PALETTE ESSENTIELLE ÉTÉ with a brush or fingertips.
L’EAU TANREFRESHING SELF-TANNING BODY MIST
An exclusive creation from CHANEL Research, in collaboration with Lucia Pica, CHANEL Global Creative Makeup and Colour Designer. Inspired by the first self-tanning skincare product created by Mademoiselle Chanel, L’EAU TAN is a self-tanning body mist that offers the progressive and natural tan of skin delicately caressed by the sun and the fresh air. L’EAU TAN can be used at will, according to desired intensity during both summer and winter. Its formula intensifies and prolongs skin’s natural tan. Invigorating, non-drying and comfortable, L’EAU TAN creates an instant sensation of freshness. Translucent, subtly tinted, and delicately scented, it reveals soft skin, naturally enhanced by a golden and luminous tan. Limited edition.
Spray generously approximately 10 cm (4 inches) from skin and spread evenly using hands. Use daily until the desired intensity is obtained. Reapply two to three times each week for a long-lasting tan. For optimal results, exfoliate skin prior to the first application of L’EAU TAN. Do not apply to sensitive or irritated skin. Wash hands and nails thoroughly after each application. L’EAU TAN does not contain a sunscreen and does not protect against sunburn.
LE VERNISLONGWEAR NAIL COLOUR
LE VERNIS by CHANEL: A long-wear, protective nail polish with lasting shine designed to make vibrant colours dazzle. Long-wearing, extra-fine and ultra-shiny, each coat offers an absolutely even and lacquered result.
How to use
After washing your hands, file your nails and remove particles with a small KABUKI BRUSH. Wipe your nails clean with a cloth. Apply the BODY EXCELLENCE HAND CREAM. Push back your cuticles at the base and sides of the nail with an orange stick, and then remove oil from the nail surface using a cotton pad moistened with nail polish remover. Apply a thin layer of LA BASE. Then apply a first layer of LE VERNIS, followed by a second coat – as thick as the first, for a more vivid colour.
