Look: Chanel Spring 2012

Look: Chanel Spring 2012

Had a lot of you asking about what was on my eyes/cheeks/lips throughout recent Chanel posts, so I figured maybe I should post the look in full so it’s easy to find ūüôā ¬†It’s super easy and takes about five minutes or less!

You will need the following…

For eyes, I applied a light layer of NARS Smudgeproof on the lid as an eyeshadow primer from lash line to brow bone with a firm, flat brush. ¬†First, I applied the lightest beige shade from the quad all over the lid with a fluffy eyeshadow brush. ¬†I used a slightly stiffer brush to apply the darker beige shade to the outer third of the lid (which really doesn’t add a lot; you could skip it). ¬†With a fluffy crease brush, I applied the burgundy shade and diffused it upwards. ¬†To highlight the brow bone, I used the lightest beige shade against with a fluffy blending brush. ¬†On the lower lash line, I applied Chanel Grenat. ¬†Finally, I applied a coat of Hourglass Film Noir¬†to lengthen and thicken lashes.

For face, I applied Chanel Perfection Lumiere with a circular foundation brush.  I blended Chanel Blush Horizon de Chanel onto cheeks with a dense blush brush and set with Guerlain Les Voilettes.  For lips, I applied Chanel Flirt.

Chanel Spring 2012: Chanel Grenat Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner

Chanel Grenat Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner ($29.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as “garnet.” It’s a rich burnished burgundy-red with a subtle coppery-red shimmer and even subtler sheen. It has pretty good color payoff in a single pass, though it tends to look browner and less red. If you were worried it might appear too red on the lash line, it doesn’t–it seems to compliment and work well against the natural tones of the skin so it does not make eyes look bloodshot.

This eyeliner formula is good; it’s both waterproof and long-wearing–no fading, smudging, or disappearing over the course of ten hours. Though the size of twist-up pencils always worries me, it’s true across all price points (from drugstore to high-end). There’s a sharpener on the opposite end which detaches and enables you to sharpen the tip of the eyeliner. The pencil is small enough that, for the most part, sharpening isn’t a must (as, inevitably, you’ll waste some product by doing so). ¬†It’s creamy enough that it delivers good pigmentation in a single pass, but it could be a little creamier to enable better glide.
