Les 4 Ombre palette in 42 Seduction
Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in 20 Bleu
Hallelujah it is weekend! It's been a very long week, had one of those days yesterday when everything goes wrong, and today Lisa Eldridge made my day by liking my look on Instagram, which was inspired by her latest vid on Modern Baby Bardot look! Click here to see Lisa's video, and to see my created version check out my Instagram: alyonainfashionlove, and I also uploaded a mini vid of this look on Vine: Alyona Infashionlove. Btw I am also wearing this Chanel palette in the Modern Baby Bardot look, you'll find all the details in the description.
Speaking of which, here are a few of the new Chanel beauty products I played with and created this springy plummy smokey eye. Some of the products I have already featured, I will link them at the end and two of them are new, which I am super excited to share with you in case you want to treat yourself and go get them over the weekend! Chanel Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow palette in 42 Seduction and Le Volume Mascara in 20 Bleu are from the Chanel Jeux de Regards Collection that launched today! This collection is all about eyes, which also features new shades of Ilusion D'Ombre, and Stylo Yeux Waterproof.
On the eyes I applied the plummy shade from the 42 Seduction palette all over the lid also taking it on the lower lash-line, and the lightest shade I used as a highlighter just over the brow bone. 42 Seduction is a beautiful palette with neutral warm shades, it's perfect for that fresh springy smokey eye. Then I used a brown eyeliner for extra dimension yet keeping it still looking soft. I also used the Le Volume Mascara in 20 Bleu, which the camera didn't pick up on very well but I really like this shade. It's a toned down greyish blue, quite sophisticated and chic. I quite like the brush, it's one of those silicone flexible brushes with a rounded point which is great for lower lashes.
On the lips I used Rouge Coco in 51 Ce Soir, very flattering beige plum shade, I lightly dabbed it on the lips with a finger for a pretty wash of colour, equally you can build it up for more intensity. Et Voilà!
