Chanel makeup


The new Chanel SS20 Makeup Collection is here people and its beautiful. I got a little taster of the whole collection which included the key items such as the eye shadow palette, the illumiunating powder and the gorgeous Baume Essentiel. I kept the whole makeup look in the post using Chanel makeup and I really love the final look. The Chanel Ultra Le Teint Velvet came launched the end of last year but I didn’t get my shade so wanted to show you how it looked on me.

The collection created by Luca Pica the Chanel Creative Makeup and Colour Designer. Inspired by the way the light hit the landscape and the natural, raw beauty of the desert, Chanel’s ‘Desert Dream’ makeup collection for Spring/Summer 2020 is a palette of bronze, muted pinks, dusty mauves, and soft browns with pops of peach and rosy tones, with both matte and shimmery finishes that celebrate the dramatic desert landscape’s textures.

For the base I used the Teint Velvet Blurring Smooth Effect Foundation Velvet Matte Finish with SPF 15 (R835) came launched the end of last year but I didn’t get my shade so wanted to show you how it looked on me. The foundation leaves my skin feeling silky smooth I really love it. The foundation totally evens out my complexion giving the illusion of a flawless complexion. Its ultra light and looks so natural on, you literally feel like you aren’t wearing anything. If you didn’t read my review check it out here.

The key palette for the collection is Les 4 Ombre’s in Warm Memories (R1000) there is one other but this one is definitely my favourite. With 3 irridescent and 1 matte shades its a beautiful palette to create a few different looks. I started with the matte shade to contour my eye and create the shape.

I then went in with beautiful peachy orange shade its so gorgeous on even on its own. I worked the shade into the creaase to add more dimension.

I then took the darkest irridescent shade and worked it along my top and bottom and lash line and on the outer and inner corners of my eye to add more definition and create a more smokey eye. Then finished off with lots of mascara on my top lashes.

The Limited edition Eclat Du Desert Illuminating Powder (R1020) is so beautiful I was sad that I had actually use it because its so pretty. The highlighter gives the skin a soft illuminating glow inspired by shimmering sand and dunes. The highlighter comes with a fan brush so you can sweep on the top of your cheek bones to get that beautifiul shimmer.

I am so happy that there is now a bronze Baume Essentiel (R775) this one is Golden Light. If you follow me on instagram I have been raving about the origional one in sculpting and now this one. It looks amazing on most skin tones but on darker skin tones it gives such an unbelievable glow. The balm is glossy and can be used on top of the cheek bones as well as your lids on its own. Here I have used it on top of my cheek boes to enhance the glow and make skin look glossy in the light.

I also contoured using a matte chanel bronzer and added a pink flush to my cheeks using a Chanel blusher but both from older collections.

Now the Chanel Ombre Premiere Laque (R590) is a new long wearing liquid eyeshadow with a metallic veil that can be used on its own, over the eyeshadow to give a pop or here I did something different and used on my lips. There are 5 different shades mine is a bronze/gold shade called Rising Sun. Its a matte liquid that is so pretty as a lip shade as well. Thats what I love about makeup you can play and use products in different ways.

This week I will be doing another tutorial on insta stories using the liquid eyeshadow so watch this space. I didn’t get my hands on any of the lipsticks but check out this Chanel tutorial from the collection:

The Chanel SS20 Makeup Collection is in selected Edgars aand Woolworths stores definitely worth checking out. Love Love Love.

For those of you who are not keen on a heavy base and a touch of something the Chanel Les Beiges Fresh Water Tint could be for you. Its not got coverage like any of the other Chanel bases its literally a tint. Its super sheer with the pigment suspended in 75% water. The packaging and the brush is what definitely makes it costly but if you feel like a splurge then try it out. Perfect to add a touch of glow to the complexion.

For all you Chanel lovers out there here some new lippies to check out. Thanks to the lovely Sarah from Prestige Cosmetics I got to test out 3 of the Chanel Coco Rouge Flash shades. If you want to see them in action head over to my instagram Shahnaz Loves Beauty I have created an insta stories Chanel Lips folder with me showing swatches and applying my fav shade Ardent. The lipsticks are super hydrating and glossy on the lips and just feel and look amazing.

Introducing the new gorgeous Chanel Ultra Teint All Day Comfort Flawless Finish Foundation that landed on my desk. It couldn’t have come at a better time because I was actually looking for a new foundation for myself.  When you have a Chanel foundation on your face well you just feel amazing really. In this post I chat about the new foundation plus I have put together a look with some Chanel products. The finished look is super simple but really pretty with gorgeous glowing skin.

I really am so lucky to be able to work with Chanel which is such an amazing makeup and skincare brand. The Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss landed on my desk and I didn’t just get 1 I got 4!!! Thanks Sarah for my goodies sending you much love. They launched in SA last month and yes they are on the pricey side of lip glosses but as you know its Chanel right??? So whats a little splurge here and there.

Chanel have done it again by introducing another gorgeous foundation to their makeup collection. I already fell in   love with the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation earlier this year.  When the new foundation landed on my desk I was super excited to try. Introducing the Chanel Le Teint Ultra Tenue foundation (R990) which I tried and tested on my model Anica for the Tamara Cherie SS16 look book and editorial.

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.

I can’t quite get my head around that Christmas is around the corner and that 2016 isn’t that far away and because next year I turn the big 40. As always Chanel bring us some gorgeous goodies for christmas to either spoil ourselves with or get someone else to spoil us. I got my hands on a couple items from the holiday collection Rouge Noir Absolutment to play around with plus a mini version of their cult perfume Chanel no 5.
