CHANEL · Eyes Campaign 2021

 

CHANEL recently released the Eyes 2021 Campaign, a capsule collection which features seven new eyeliners added to the existing lineup, along with two new eyeshadow palettes. Tapping Belgian singer Angèle as the face of the campaign, this grouping might seem small, but don’t let that fool you, as these pieces all pack one helluva gorgeous punch.

CHANEL · Backstage Beauty Fall-Winter 2021/22 Haute Couture

 

It seemed only fitting that CHANEL’s recent Fall/Winter 2021-2022 Haute Couture show was held at the Palais Galleria, City of Paris Fashion Museum, especially considering that paintings from the Belle Époque (19th century) were the inspiration behind the collection, in particular works from two female artists — Berthe Morisot and Marie Laurencin. Interestingly, both makeup and hair had a strong edge, an effect that toned down the softness of the pieces and gave the looks an overall rock & roll vibe which I personally found so fresh and, well … cool.

CHANEL Cruise 2021/22 Collection · Backstage Beauty

 

 

This past May 3rd, CHANEL presented its Cruise 2021-2022 Collection, with Virginie Viard once again turning to Gabrielle Chanel’s personal archives for inspiration. Held at Carrières de Lumières in Les Baux-de-Provence (South of France), this former quarry with its towering stone-cut walls, instantly calls to mind ancient Egyptian structures (no? just me?). So totally unique and absolutely impressive … and now I absolutely want to go there.

New! Make Up For Ever Aqua Resist Smoky Shadow Stick

MAKE UP FOR EVER recently launched several new products, but the one that truly caught my eye (lol) were these Aqua Resist Smoky Shadow Sticks. Considering that we’re all wearing masks out in public now (I know I am, and I actually don’t mind looking like a superhero and/or villain – take your pick), the eyes are truly the focus. Plus with the sweltering heat we’ve been having, something that claims to be budge-proof is definitely ok by me.

CHANEL · Le Volume Stretch Mascara & Le Liner Rouge Noir

 

Out of all the makeup products in the world, the one that I’d say can make you look instantly “done” & wide awake, has got to be mascara. And while not all mascaras are created equal, CHANEL’s Le Volume has been my go-to since its launch years ago. Recently added to the range is the new Le Volume Stretch* … it’s got quite a lot to live up to, so I put it to the test. The iconic Rouge Noir* family also has a new addition in the form of liquid liner, and even though I tend to reach for pencils, you can bet that I’ll be giving this one a whirl.

*Graciously gifted by CHANEL for my unbiased consideration
