Happy days when the Chanel In the Summer Light Makeup Collection hit my desk as they always bring out a gorgoeous selection of shades and textures and of course Les Beiges bronzers are always a must in the makeup stash. Already in stores this collection really is one of my favourite because I love bronze and gold shades for summer when it comes to the eyes. I got my hands from the key pieces from the collection and no they are not going in my pro kit as I love it so much.
The limited edition eyeshadow palette Empreinte Du Desert (R995)that is the key to this whole in the summer light look has 4 shades with a beautiful texture that looks like wavy sand blends beautifully when creating your bronze/copper smokey eye. You can either work a wash of bronze for the day and then build up with the darker shades, pop the gold shimmer in the inner corner of the eyes and there you go. Or you could work the khaki green shadow subtly a long the lash line for the day or night look and make your eyes really pop or add this shade on the centre of the lid over the smokey eye to add extra definition. Definitely a must for summer and a great way to enhance your tan to give that sexy sulty look.
Of course we all love Les Beiges Healthy Glow bronzers and in this collection its a duo (R990) with a lighter more tan shade and a darker bronzer which you can work around the face using the lighter shade on the forehead, along the nose, chin and neck and then the darker shade as your contour on the cheek bone. Or take the lighter shade with the subtle shimmer and apply to the apples of your cheeks. love the brush that comes with the compact as its so easy to contour with and create definition to your face.
A lip gloss is a great way to freshen the face but also keep it more subtle so as not to take away from the smokey eyes. Love the Levres Scintillantes (R505) in Tanami as its a pop of colour making lips look really juicy and compliments the smokey eye.
I tested out the eyeshadow, Les Beiges duo and lip gloss and used the Les Beiges foundation and Chanel mascara from the eyes collection to complete the look. Definitely taking on holiday with me for my go to bronzed look for the next month.
If you love this collection as much as I do then go get yourself to a Chanel counter and treat yourself.
