Summer is the perfect time to have fun with your makeup. Colourful eyeshadow looks fresh, a little extra bronzer is pretty much expected, and fun nails are a must! For all those reasons (and more), I am obsessed with the new CHANEL Méditerranée Summer 2015 Collection. Inspired by the Mediterranean, products from this collection are perfect for creating a sun-kissed summer look that will make you look like you just stepped off a yacht in Cannes.
Here’s the rundown of my must-haves:
Chanel Lumière d’été Illuminating Powder ($76) is so beautiful that some of us may not want to disturb the perfect camellia surface, but if you do, you’ll find a shimmery golden-bronze powder suited for light/medium skin tones. This one adds that subtle glow to your complexion (eyes and décolleté too) and is a limited-edition shade.
The Méditerranée collection’s Le Vernis Nail Colour shades are particularly enticing – perhaps unsurprisingly, I am in love with 707 Méditerranée and 717 Coquilicot ($31), which bring back memories of my summer vacay in the Côte d’Azur – just imagine all the possibilities with these two colours!
The Méditerranée collection includes four Rouge Coco Shine shades: 477 Rêveuse, 487 Amorosa (limited-edition), 497 Intrépide, and 507 Insoumise ($42) – my fave! While all four are quite lovely, I think Insoumise will be the most versatile this season – a little shine with a great colour pay-off.
As for those cool Chanel Stylo Eyeshadow Fresh Effects Eyeshadow, I love all 5 colours, but my absolute faves are 127 Laurier Rose for day and 117 Azulejo ($36) for weekends and evenings.
And there you have it – the beautiful CHANEL Méditerranée Summer 2015 Collection, which will hit the stores on May 4th. Share your faves after the jump!
