CHANEL · Fall Winter 2020/2021 Beauty

For CHANEL’s recent Fall/Winter 2020-2021 Ready-To-Wear show, Paris’ historic Grand Palais (aka: the brand’s go-to venue), was transformed into a representation of the River Seine. With undulating curves and a sinuous catwalk polished to mimic crystal clear water, the looks presented fit a nautical theme via swashbuckling influences, thanks to ruffles a-plenty and gleaming admiral buttons — but what truly captured me, was the makeup.

I don’t know which I like better; the way these blushes apply, or saying “Cheeky Cheeky Bam Bam” … I actually can’t stop repeating it, lol. Clarins came out with some fresh products for Fall 2019 that focus on lips & cheeks, and I’m totally loving this simple take. Of course, the way these all perform doesn’t hurt the cause either.
