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.

SS19 Foundations: Chanel, Hourglass, Dior, Guerlain, Estee Lauder

There are always new foundations out for Spring, and SS19 is not an exception,  there are at least 10 new launches I can think of, on top of my head. So I’ve decided to choose a few different ones just to give you an idea of what is coming out. All foundations are available in many different colours, except Chanel.

I haven’t tried any of these  so I am providing the official descriptions.

Guerlain L’ESSENTIEL NATURAL GLOW FOUNDATION 16H WEAR

The complexion is perfect, luminous and fresh. The comfortable texture becomes one with the skin, making it ideal for buildable coverage (light to medium)”

Not sure what I think of the quirky bottle but it definitely stands out, and the foundation sounds like something I personally would love.

Guelian is available  from Escentual,  Harrods, Saks,  Neiman MarcusBergdorf GoodmanSelfridges and   Nordstrom.

Chanel Libre Makeup Collection for Christmas 2016

I am loving the official description of the new Libre  Chanel Makeup collection:

“Sheer meets intense. Matte and glossy collide. The artificial clashes with the real in a bold new makeup collection inspired by the material urban world. Striking contrasts of colours, textures, intensities and light capture a contemporary edge and thrilling moment in time.”

SS16 Foundations: Chanel, Dior and Laura Mercier

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:
