I really love the look of the Chanel’s makeup collection for Autumn 2016, and it made me smile that several readers told me how they’ve thought of me when they saw it. I do love me some red, that’s for sure.
Here are actually several videos about the collection where Lucia Pica talks us through her inspiration.
I think Kristen Stewart fits this collection perfectly.

Chanel Dans La Lumiere de L’ete Makeup Collection for Summer 2016 is all about sandy browns, coppers for the eyes and face, and pinks with oranges for the lips and nails. Let’s take a look.
Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour, $65
Duo 01 and Duo 02 are lightweight powders with two shades that create that instant glow and perk up the complexion. There is also a Pinceau (Blush) Brush which retails for $55.
The LE Les 4 Ombres ($65) has that desert inspired pattern. You get three bronze and earthy toned shades and one khaki.
Here is actually a promo image of the collection to give you an idea of how you could use the products.

Sometimes it feels really weird that I love makeup. My Mum couldn’t care less about it, and I did not really read glossy magazines or watch beauty shows on TV growing up. (I did do it all but it was when I already knew that I love all things beauty).
My Mum did have quite a few lipsticks and a mascara but she was not obsessed with all those things and wore makeup only for special occasions. She did like perfume though, as long as I remember.
So I’ve decided to ask her what makeup products she truly loves. And since I’ve mentioned perfume – her most used one these days.
Before I start I have to mention that she does use foundation and mascara occasionally but she doesn’t really have a favourite and would just use whichever [I give her]. However, the products shown above she loves and uses on a regular basis.
As you can already guess, Mum’s favourite makeup product is a lipstick. She has a fair complexion with dark eyes and very dark hair so bright reds and berries look amazing on her.

Besides the lipsticks, the other makeup product almost every brand is bringing out for SS16 is foundation. And while cushions and foundations with the dropper (BECCA, Stila, Kiko Armani, Rouge Bunny Rouge etc) are having a real moment this season, “classic” foundations are still going strong.
And here are three that caught my attention with the official description:
Chanel LES BEIGESHealthy Glow Foundation (£36 from Selfridges)
“An invisible foundation that creates a natural healthy glow by giving skin the radiance of a day spent outdoors, while protecting it from harsh environmental conditions. The perfection of a natural glow. With a range of subtle, easy-to-wear beiges, CHANEL’s Healthy Glow Foundation frees women from their fears of using foundation and gives every skin tone a lasting healthy glow. The soft and comfortable texture glides over the skin and melts away. The texture becomes imperceptible and allows the skin to breathe freely, while protecting it from harsh environmental conditions. The complexion is evened-out and enhanced with a sheer finish.”
“Everlasting 16-hour perfection from morning toRead More
