Since reviewing two of the Printemps Précieux de Chanel Spring 2013 collection items earlier in the week, the Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Frivole, and the Illuminating Powder, I was inspired to create a spring look similar to the Chanel advertisement for the collection. While I did not have the colors of the eye quad that came out with this collection, nor the lipsticks, I decided to use what I had to create an inspired look.
You can see the illuminating powder on the top of the cheekbones – I love it!
A soft glow, with the perfect pop of bright shades in this look are really making me want spring to get here a little more quickly!
For the eyes, I used a combination of products I had on-hand: L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Blinged and Brilliant (a shimmery rose-gold) on the lid and Bottomless Java (a shimmery dark mocha brown) in the outer corner. In the crease I used Wet n Wild’s Nutty (a soft brown with sheen). For a brow highlight I used the Chanel Illuminating Powder. For more a more authentic look to the advertisement I should have mixed in a more plummy brown-tone, but did not have one with the right finish I was looking for.
On the lips I wanted to keep it bright but sophisticated, and chose one of the new L’Oreal Caresse Aqua Lacquer (Wet Shine Stain) glosses in Rose On And On, which I think fits perfectly in this spring look!
How anxious are you for spring to arrive?
