Recently, Karl Lagerfeld presented his CHANEL Spring/Summer 2018 Haute Couture collection in the Grand Palais in Paris. Against a background scene resembling a French garden, he showed a very pretty and elegant collection. There were tweed suits, often with matching booties, flowers embroidered on dresses and lots of pink in shades from pale pastels to fuchsia and raspberry.
The beauty look echoed the collection. The models wore sleek ponytails tied at the nape of the neck with flower fascinators on their heads and little tulle veils. Makeup was pink-toned - rosy cheeks and deep pink glossy lips.
Meanwhile, the CHANEL Spring/Summer 2018 makeup collection is on the beauty counters. For NEAPOLIS: NEW CITY, Lucia Pica, CHANEL's creative makeup and colour designer, was inspired by her hometown Naples and the shades (greens, yellow, gold, red, pinks and black) are described by CHANEL as "luminous" and "volcanic". I think this collection is also very pretty, vibrant and fresh - perfect for Spring!
First on my shopping list for the new season - a bright nail polish. CHANEL's Les Vernis Longue Tenue in Giallo Napoli 592, a luminous yellow, was perfect. There were 3 more lovely colours for nails in the collection:-
- Nuvola Rosa 588, a very pretty pastel pink (on my wish list)
- Arancio Vibrante 634, bright orange
- Verde Pastello 590, mint
|CHANEL LE VERNIS LONGUE TENUE Giallo Napoli, ROUGE COCO GLOSS Poppea|
- Parthenope 788 beige pink
- Sibylla 786 a lovely peach pink
- Aphrodite 792 blue
- Rosso Pompeiano 410, pinky coral red
- Rosso Parthenope 415 pinky red
Turning to eyeshadows, Les 9 Ombres Exclusive Creation, Édition No. 1 - Affresco is a palette of eye shadows in a variety of colours from the collection.
Also, there is a beautiful green/teal eye shadow in Ombre Première Longwear Cream Eye Shadow - Verderame 824. That's definitely on my wish list!
