chanel les beiges healthy glow foundation


I love nothing more than a healthy glowing complexion. The Chanel Les Beiges collection just has it down when it comes to the glow. The Healthy Glow Foundation isn’t a new foundation but its one I really love for a flawless complexion. The new Chanel Les Beiges Sheer Healthy Glow Highlighting Fluid is absolutely stunning. Combine these two together and you have a beautiful glow.

The foundation really gives a natural glow to the skin leaving skin looking like skin. Its a beautiful texture that melts into the skin leaving skin to breath freely. Infused with Kalanchoe extract and UV filters protect the skin from harsh environmental conditions.  As well as a “Healthy Glow Booster” mineral pigments that deliver a healthy glow. Together with Soft focus powders, they even out the complexion and enhance it. I love it.

The Sheer Healthy Glow Highlighting Fluid is my personal fav at the moment. I love to mix it in with the foundation to get that overall glowing complexion. For those of you that know me I am all about the glow maybe a little obsessed with it. There are two shades sun kissed which I got its a soft golden shade that totally illuminates the skin. As well as Pearly Glow its definitely one for the paler complexions.

You can either mix with foundation or layer over your base on the key points of your face. I love to do both because my motto is glowing skin is always in. If you really want to go to town on the glow you can also add in a little of the Chanel Le Baumes Essentiel.

I know Chanel is definitely pricey but the quality is amazing when it comes to the foundations and highlighters. Available at selected Woolworths but hurry up they selling out.

Yesterday I filmed a video with Elle magazine to chat about the new La Mer launches and see what a typical day for me is between being a makup artist and a blogger. Even though I have a tan going on at the moment I still felt tired and needed a pick me up for my look and what better way to do it than with a bold lip. I kept my makeup look really clean focusing on my skin, lashes and lips.

I am currently interviewing a few people in the beauty industry about their favourite products and it got me thinking to what are my favourite beauty products of all time. There really are loads I love but I broke it down to a few that really have wowed me and I would buy again and again whether its for myself or for a shoot. So here is the list I complied of some of my all time beauty favourite picks:

I test out so many brands and products all the time whether its on myself or on models when I am on a shoot. Some I love but still move on to try other products but some I have to go out and buy for myself for my personal stash. There were to makeup products that I have loved for myself and needed to repurchase on my trip overseas the Chanel Les Beiges Foundation and the Benefit Boo-ing Concealer.

Anything Chanel launching I am always excited and when the delivery man comes with a box from Chanel my day has literally been made especially since the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation is finally here. If you don’t know anything about the Les Beiges line its all about healthy glowing skin which started out with powders and then some gorgeous bronzers and now the foundation is being added to the family. For those of you based in SA its heading your way on the 19th Feb so you better put that date in the diary if you want to go test this one out. There are 12 shades in the collection so hopefully there is one for you, it comes in a 30ml pump bottle and retails at R785.
