“The concept is that there is no concept! It is about sensuality, feeling and the spirit of things.” – Lucia Pica, Chanel Global Creative Makeup and Colour Designer.
Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Colour arrived just at the right time, mid morning on a cold winter’s day when I had just taken a peek at my pale face and wished that it were possible to quickly escape to an exotic island for some sun! If a warm and natural ‘no makeup’ look is what you’re after, then this one’s for you (and me!).
Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Colour forms part of the Chanel Cruise Collection 2017: les Indispensables De L’Ete. Made with ultra-fine gold particles the powder creates a subtle, natural veil over the skin and comes in five shades: light, medium light, medium, medium deep and deep.
I tried out the Medium Light shade, as I am naturally pale and wanted just a gentle sprinkling of colour. The ultra-sheer and lightweight formula gives a subtle and natural glow to my skin so if you’re pale like me try out one shade darker than your skin tone. If you want to use it as a highlighter then buy a shade one lighter than your skin tone and apply to the middle of forehead, apples of cheeks, Cupid’s bow and the end of your nose where light bounces off to give you touches of luminosity.
