AW19 Foundations: Chanel, Charlotte Tilbury, Pat McGrath, Anastasia, Clarins and Kevyn Aucoin

Autumn is the time to be browsing  foundations, as so many brands are bringing new  ones out. So here are just a few that caught my attention. And it’s  incredible how brands now do such a wide variety of shades, and some even demonstrate all shades applied.

Chanel Ultra Le Teint Velvet, £37. Comes in 15 shades.

“Longwearing foundation that naturally smoothes and evens out the complexion. Its blurring effect erases all imperfections and ensures makeup with a matte velvet finish.

AW19 New Makeup: Hourglass, theBalm, Chanel

Here are a few new launches that caught my attention recently. They are from Hourglass, Chanel and theBalm, three brands I really love.

When I was placing an order on a new eye brow pencil (here), I was wishing for a slim version of the Hourglass eye brow pencil, and guess what? They just launched  Arch Brow Micro-Sculpting Pencils ($28) in 9 shades. The tip is  1.4mm which makes it ultra precise.

There are also 4 new shades of the Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow, $29  (here): Rapture (cranberry), Vivid (olive),  Burnish ( deep bronze) and Ray ( deep champagne). And I really love the look of Rapture.

Finally, the brand

Dark Lips. Get The Look: Chanel Autumn 2020 and Alternative Products

Long time readers will know that I am a huge fan of a dark lip, so I am obviously loving the beauty look from the latest Chanel show. Lucia Pica kept the face and eye makeup minimal to make it look fresh and modern.

On the lips she used the new products which will be a part of the Autumn collection (out in July), and, no doubt, will be a big hit: ROUGE ALLURE VELVET EXTRÊME in N°130 Rouge Obscur  and ROUGE COCO GLOSS in N°816 Laque Noire.

Other products used for the look were:

SS19 Bronzers: Lancome, Chanel, Chantecaille, byTerry Clarins and Givenchy

May means that pretty much all of the summer collections are out, including all the pretty bronzers. I have chosen six that caught my eye. But it seems that I will have to feature more a bit later.

Chanel duo bronze et lumièreBronzer And Highlighter Duo, $70 from Chanel

As all bronzers in this feature, it comes in 2 shades: Clair and Medium (shown). You get a matte bronzer and an  iridescent highlighter. I looks pretty perfect to me.

 Lancome  LE FRENCH GLOW , $45 Nordstrom and Saks

How cool are the LIBERTÉ, EGALITÉ, FEMININITÉ writings on the bronzer?  You get 4 shades in each compact to bronze and contour. You can get 1 Warm Liberte  or 2 Warm Sensualite.

Clarins Bronzing Compact, $45 from Saks, Nordstrom
