Summer beauty is all about one thing: luminosity. The words “holiday skin” conjure up images of glowing complexions, sun-kissed hair, bronzed limbs, and understated flashes of subtle color that perfectly encapsulate that effortless vacation vibe. This is why Chanel’s latest makeup launch – the ‘Les Indispensables de L’Été’ cruise collection – is our summer makeup must-have.
The first-ever cruise collection created by Chanel’s Global Creative Makeup and Color Designer Lucia Pica, it’s your one-stop shop to glamorous and gorgeous summer makeup. Known for her innovative and artistic approach to beauty, Pica has perfectly combined beautiful bronzes with cool colors and hot summer hues to modernize and redefine the classic summer look. “The concept is that there is no concept! It is about sensuality, feeling, and the spirit of things,” explains Pica. “It’s about being yourself, rising above judgments or perceptions of what you should be. Gabrielle Chanel was often about courage, the courage of being herself and not conforming. I want that for women too.”

With just a sweep of this bronzing powder, you’ll have radiant summer skin in seconds. Infused with ultra-fine gold particles, mineral butters, and beeswax, it gives you a subtle glow and healthy flush of color wherever you choose to apply it – bronzers are for bodies too! There are five shades to choose from, from a pinky beige to a deep, dark chocolate, so you can mix and match to contour and highlight your skin to perfection.
With shades spanning from sunrise to sunset, meet your summer lip saviors. The ‘Rouge Coco Shine’ lipsticks glisten with glossy color (there’s a peachy hue and a warm nude shade) to perfect your pout. There’s also the trio of ‘Rouge Coco Stylo’ lip pens that add a more intense dose of pigment for the ultimate statement smile. With an intense bronze-y chocolate, a soft beige nude, and a cool coral pink to choose from, your look can be taken from sand to evening soirée with ease.
With a waterproof mascara and liner on offer, your eyes will be just as well taken care of. The creamy and highly pigmented ‘Stylo Yeux’ will define them with deep, dramatic color (try the ‘Terra Rossa’ shade for the perfect purple hue) before the ‘Inimitable Waterproof Mascara’ loads up your lashes with a classic black or a rich, gorgeous green.
The ultimate final touch to your bronzed beauty look, these new nail polishes are a summer mani must-have. You can opt for a creamy coral, milky orange, or pale pink – or go dark with the blue-green shimmers of the stunning ‘Sargasso’ shade.
