Chanel has spoken and next season’s must-try makeup is the dolled-up look – think: big loud lashes, flawless skin, rosy complexions, and perfectly pink lips. Whether you want to embrace the trend wholeheartedly or just highlight your eyes or lips, read on for all the products Tom Pecheux and his team used backstage at the brand’s Fall 2016 Couture show.
The perfect doll look starts with the perfect complexion, so prep your skin with Chanel’s ‘La Solution 10 de Chanel’ and use the ‘Hydra Beauty Gel Yeux’ around the eyes to keep your entire face looking flawless and feeling healthy and hydrated. Next, apply a light layer of the ‘Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation’ (you can apply a second layer if you require heavier coverage) and use the light-coverage concealer ‘Éclat Lumière Highlighter Face Pen’ anywhere that needs brightening. It’s perfect for masking under-eye bags and perking up your peepers.
For blemishes, redness, or areas that need a higher-coverage concealer, dab on the ‘Correcteur Perfection’ and gently blend in with your fingertips. Set with a light dusting of the ‘Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder’ and your complexion is complete.
For the perfect palette to get doll eyes, reach for the ‘Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Palette in Tissé Particulier’. Easily buildable and with four colors to choose from, it allows you to create a subtle or dramatic look, depending on your makeup mood. Define both your bottom and upper lash line with a thick application of the ‘Écriture de Chanel Eyeliner Pen in Noir’ before loading lashes with the ‘Le Volume de Chanel’ mascara. You can then apply falsies of your choice or just stick to mascara for a subtler take on loud doll lashes.
It wouldn’t be called a “doll look” without a heavy dose of blusher, so brush the ‘Joues Contraste Blush in Rouge Profond’ onto the apples of your cheeks for a fabulous flush of color.
For pout perfection, line your lips with the ‘Le Crayon Lèvres in Natural’ before applying the ‘Rouge Allure Lipstick in Rouge Ingénue’. This provides a creamy, smooth base for the ‘Rouge Allure Ink in Amoureux’, Chanel’s brand-new matte lip color that is launching soon (so watch this space).
Use ‘La Base’ to smooth and protect your nails before applying ‘Le Vernis in Ballerina’ – a pretty pastel-pink shade of nail polish – and setting with the ‘Le Gel Coat’ for a glossy, high-shine finish.
