Chantecaille Les Fetes Makeup Collection for Holiday 2012

This holiday the luxury brand Chantecaille offers a gorgeous rose powder, eye shadow trio and stunning berry lip products.

Find out how you can re-create the look from the promo image below. Plus enjoy the beautiful promo photos of the new products. I personally would really love both lip products. But the powder would make a fantastic gift.

Apply Biolift Concealer, preferably the same color as the foundation, directly from the stylo, starting from the tear duct, sweep the product toward the outer corner of the eye. Gently press the product into the skin with fingertips.

Set the foundation with the new HD Perfecting Powder using the Kabuki Brush in a circular motion all over the face for a flawless finish.

Highlight the cheekbones and the bridge of the nose with Les Pétales Powder ($74) to add luminosity.
