The Chanel Face



More like The Chanel Base, but oh well.
Chanel - just the name invokes a sense of luxury. Who doesn't want to own that quilted Chanel bag or a little black dress? Until I can afford it, the Makeup has got to do. I don't own too many Chanel Products (3), but the ones I do own I use and love to death.
When buying Makeup, whatever the brand, my first instinct is always to try out face products - I think bases are my thing. For the sake of this post, I kept my makeup relatively simple because I just wanted to show you how well these products work together. There's just something about pairing products of the same company together, isn't there?
Vita Lumier Aqua gives you this gorgeously dewy finish has light-medium coverage. Somehow it manages to conceal all my spots and scars (as is evident) eliminating the need for concealer. It was also one of those days where I woke up after a loooonng restful night of sleep and hence did not have to battle my dark circles. I lightly dusted the Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre all over my face - focusing under the eye and around the cheeks to keep my foundation in place and help it last all day, because this day was a long 'un.
I skipped the bronzer (shocking, I know!) and headed straight for my Le Blush Creme De Chanel in Presage (62) which looks so natural. I don't blush by nature, but my face does go a shade of almost beetroot red when I work out - not attractive in the least - but this is a "I wish I blushed this colour - heck, I wish I blushed at all" kind of natural.
The rest of my face consisted of eyeliner, running a bit of NARS Coconut Grove through my eyebrows and my NYX San Paulo on ze lips! Curled 'em lashes just for definition sake and left it at that.

What are your favorite Chanel Products?

    2. C5..I wanted to get C6 but the MUA convinced me to buy C5 as he was like "people come to us to become fair and you are the first person who wants to look darker than your skin tone :p"

    3. Almost the same thing happened to me too! I wanted C6 but the MUA said C5 is a better match for me, but now, with my tan wearing off rapidly, might have to get C4. :o
