The theme for this year’s CHANEL Cruise 2023/24 runway presentation was all things Hollywood, touching on the importance of this iconic Parisian brand in America. Appropriately, it was held at Paramount Studios where the celebrities came out in droves to witness what CHANEL does best: put on one helluva show.
Two things I absolutely love about the look created for this show: the fact that all the products are part of the permanent range, and that it features my all-time favourite eyeshadow palette, Candeur et Expérience. Recreating it is also simple and depending on your tastes, you can easily tone everything down or intensify the colours as you wish. All told, this makeup can suit just about everyone and I will definitely be giving it a whirl.
