For those who aren’t too familiar with blush and eyeshadows, there are a few cornerstones as far as makeup is concerned: a great mascara, a dark eye pencil and an eye-catching lipstick. Even for those who don’t have much time to spend in front of the mirror, there are just a few steps to take in order to create perfect makeup options for the day and the evening; you just have to focus on the right colors. We suggest 2 types of makeup for Winter 2015, one that focuses on the lips and another one on the eyes, that we created using products from Chanel Rouge Noir Absolument collection. And for a special night…why not using a mix of both?
ALL EYES ON MY EYES. With your fingertips or a small brush apply the Illusion D’Ombre Rouge Noir cream eyeshadow, which features some golden reflections, on the upper eyelid. Enchance the color using a dark purple shade like the one one from the Signe Particulier Rouge Noir palette. Create light in the inner corner of the eye using the dusty pink from the same palette. And now it’s time for the eye pencil: use Le Crayon Kohl Rouge Noir on the inner rims and on the upper eyelid, using it as an eyeliner tracing a thin line. Complete the look with a nice coat of black mascara or of Le Volume de Chanel Rouge Noir mascara for an even darker-chic effect! Since the look is very intense, we’ll balance it by putting on a lighter lipstick, like the Rouge Allure Vaporeuse.
KISS ME BABY. The focus is here on the lips, therefore we’ll put lighter shades on the eyes. Let’s start by applying the gold from the Signe Particulier Rouge Noir palette on the upper eyelid and under the eyebrows, following with the dusty pink from the same palette just on the upper eyelid. Then, it’s the turn of the Le Crayon Kohl Rouge Noir pencil on the inner rims as an eyeliner. Completing the look with the Le Volume de Chanel Rouge Noir mascara. Illuminate your face applying the Joues Contraste Lumière 12 Coups de Minuit blush on the cheeks. And now the lips. First outline your lip line with a pencil, then use a brush to apply a dark lipstick like Chanel Rouge Allure Rouge Noir.
For both looks, never forget your nails! The perfect polish is Chanel’s LE VERNIS Rouge Noir that is turning 20 years old!
