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.
