Summer is officially here, and Chanel celebrates it with the new Les Beiges 2018 collection. The complexion is bright and glowy, skin is healthy and fresh, and eyes and lips enjoy a delicate tint that enhances their natural beauty. The collection is all about sheer, beautiful products, that are easy to use and light-weight, exactly what I personally seek in these hot summer days.
The evolution of Les Beiges
In 2013, Les Beiges made natural a style. Healthy, luminous, radiant and warm, the products from the 2013 collection introduced a different point of view on make-up. No longer hiding behind heavy foundation and shimmering highlights, enhancing ones natural beauty and features in an intuitive way became the new trend.
In 2018, Les Beiges reinvents a nude style that plays by its own rules. Complexion is sheer, revealing the natural texture of the skin, healthy colorful blush and cherry-kissed sheer lips brighten the look, and the whole face is given a healthy natural glow, while eyes are barely touched. The sheer Les Beiges products are now adaptable to many skin tones, enhancing the natural beauty of all women.
A bright, beautiful complexion is key, and with the Les Beiges sheer, light-weight products, it is easy to achieve. For a summer base that leaves the skin feeling hydrated and glowy, Chanel suggests Sheer healthy glow tinted moisturizer. It has SPF 30 that makes it an appropriate choice for hot summer days, and a natural finish that blends into the skin seamlessly, leaving it hydrated and radiant, with a lovely, fresh, satin finish. Available in six shades.
A warm, healthy glow is what Les Beiges collection aims for, and the product that will help you achieve that look is with no doubt the limited edition Healthy glow luminous multi-colour powder. It features a combination of several beige tones that brighten the complexion and bring light to the face, making the skin look fresh and sun-kissed. Available in three shades.
This past year, I re-discovered the blush, and my personal favorite is the cream blush. I feel cream blushes blend easier on the skin and look more natural, giving the cheeks a 'just pinched' look. Healthy glow sheer colour stick No. 25 Rosy Red is a beautiful, rosy shade that compliments my complexion, leaving it fresh and youthful. Application is easy: just glide the stick on your cheeks and blend with your fingertips. The fact that no brush is needed for the application makes it perfect for on the go touch-ups.
As for the eyes and lips, both get a subtle hint of colour that is barely there, but is enough to emphasis exactly what is needed in the summer heat. Three new eye-shadow palettes were released in the collection, each one of them contain five natural, creamy, soft colours. Healthy glow natural eyeshadow palette glides easily over the skin and provides a natural base and endless possibilities. Available in three shades.
Moisturizing lip tints, are my personal favorite and the Healthy glow lip balm is a wonderful choice. Three subtle shades compliment the lips and provide moisture thanks to moringa butter and a blend of luxurious oils. I love traveling with this product as it provides my lips much needed comfort and care. Available in three shades. 'Deep', a beautiful berry tint is definitely my personal favorite from the collection, what is yours?
