I love the changing seasons and the new fashions that they bring.

Back in early April, I wrote about the CHANEL Autumn/Winter 2018/19 collection, presented in Paris during the fashion week in March.  I described the beauty look at the show, which was light, healthy, peachy but also golden and luminous.  I thought that it would be a perfect look for the late summer into early Autumn season and in my post, I featured CHANEL's new product, ROUGE COCO LIP BLUSH in Tender Rose (414), as worn by the models in the show.  You can read all about it in my post, "CHANEL ROUGE COCO LIP BLUSH", dated 3/4/18 - see link below:-


Now it's September and time to think about eye makeup for this look.  In the show, two CHANEL products were used:

  • LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW NATURAL EYESHADOW PALETTE in DEEP, a palette containing 5 shades in earthy and golden tones, which can be used as a base, highlighter or eyeshadow.
  • OMBRE PREMIÈRE LONGWEAR POWDER EYE SHADOW in Poudre D'Or (No 34), a metallic gold eyeshadow.
I decided to buy OMBRE PREMIÈRE in  Poudre D'Or (No 34) - as in the photograph below:-

It comes in a little, shiny black mirrored compact with a foam applicator to apply it with and a soft little brush for blending. It has a soft, powder texture and applies easily and blends well.  I personally will use a little lightly below the eyebrow, on the eyelids and even as a highlighter on the top of the cheeks, to add just a touch of golden glitter and shimmer.

I'm really looking forward to wearing this peach/golden look for early Autumn!
