Feeling romantic? The glorious Chanel Collection États Poétiques challenges everything you thought you knew about pink being nothing more than a pale and interesting shade for the soft at heart. It throws the spotlight on this feminine hue, in a dazzling spectrum of shades from sparkling pink to heart-stopping fuchsia and blissful berry, with a touch of electric yellow thrown in for good measure.
Fascinated by the art of poetry, Gabrielle Chanel shared with poets the same spirit and aspiration for beauty. Beyond verses or clothing lay the idea of absolute perfection, invisible to the eye. For this collection, the CHANEL Makeup Creation Studio draws inspiration from a colour steeped in poetic tenderness: pink, interpreted in a spectrum of shades, an intense and fragile colour palette.
Look of Love
The striking look on the right was created using the products below. To add a burst of colour to your lips (or to take the look from dreamy day to dramatic night) up the ante with Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Full Colour in Viva (limited edition) on your lips.
Tip While this is an Autumn Collection to tie in with the start of the new Fall season in the Northern Hemisphere, the shade combinations offer the perfect bursts of poetic petal hues to adorn your face with in Spring, and even summer.
Poetry in Motion
After experiencing the new collection a few months ago, I was given three gorgeous items to play with and use to create my very own beauty looks for the coming season.
