I was hoping to share this beautiful Chanel make-up collection with you all when it launched towards the end of August, but unfortunately the website was still undergoing its major makeover. Due to the obvious popularity, most of the items from the Les Automnales Collection are sold out but if you hurry you may be lucky in hunting down a few from selected stores.
For me, the visuals alone present such incredible beauty inspiration and I think they are worth sharing for their simple yet striking styling. And if you’re looking for a beautiful new make-up look, you can also watch the tutorial below to see how to get the elegant nude smokey eye. There’s also something really opulent coming this year for Chanel’s Christmas Collection which I am excited to share with you, so keep an eye out for that in the next few weeks.
All the Leaves Around
Taking inspiration from the magical season of Autumn, a time where the lushness of green trees gives way to a monochrome canvas of earthy tones, the CHANEL Makeup Creation Studio presents us with an enchanting collection of seasonal essentials. It’s filled with hues such as the deep brown bark of tree trunks, khaki-like greens of moss-covered branches and ochre tones of changing leaves about to fall wistfully to the ground creating an enchanting carpet of crispness underneath one’s feet. To add some fashionable flair to the collection, cast your eyes upwards to colourful bursts of iridescent plumage of song birds enjoying the last rays of warm sun.
Get the Look
This nude smokey eye has to be one of my favourite looks for the season, even though we are going into summer and not autumn/winter. It’s just such a classic make-up look which can be worn day or night, on hots days or in rainy weather, for a relaxed or sophisticated affair. It transcends season, occasion and mood, and is simply and effortlessly beautiful, much like Chanel.
Tip Pair it with a nude lipstick using Chanel Rouge Allure in Pensive or add a touch of sheer berry red with Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Temeraire for that just bitten lip effect.
