Chanel’s Cruise 2019 show brought the ocean to the runway – literally. A 330-foot cruise ship, dubbed ‘La Pausa’, was built under the glass dome of Grand Palais and set the tone for a marine-themed collection rife with berets, blazers, and sailor stripes. So, naturally, the beauty look complemented this perfectly, with a bold sea-blue eye created backstage by Chanel’s Global Creative Makeup and Color Designer, Lucia Pica, and her team. Read on to discover the key Chanel beauty products that were used and how to get the look yourself.
After properly prepping your skin (cleanse, tone, and moisturize), apply a light layer of the ‘Vitalumiere Aqua’ foundation using the ‘Pinceau Estompe Teint’ foundation brush. This foundation is super light and gives you a fresh, “second skin” finish in seconds, and is loaded with high-definition pigments to create gorgeous luminosity and radiance.
Next, conceal any blemishes and discoloration with the ‘Correcteur Perfection Long Lasting Concealer’ before dusting skin with a touch of the ‘Poudre Universelle Libre’, which provides a sheer, lightweight veil of coverage and keeps your makeup looking fresher for longer. Finish your face by using the multi-tasking ‘La Palette Essentielle’. It features a bronzer to contour, a red blush, and a shimmery shade to strobe, so it’s amazing for sculpting and adding a healthy flush of color to your skin.
Of course, this look is all about the eyes – and lots of blue. Using the ‘Stylo Ombre Et Contour’ eyeshadow pen, Pica outlined the silhouette of an oversized cat-eye before using it to color the entire lid, which is a simple way to ensure you get the perfect shape every time. Add dimension and build up the deep-blue hue by using the ‘Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow palette in Quiet Revolution’ over your creamy cat-eye, and finish with a slick or two of the ‘Le Volume Revolution de Chanel’ mascara (the word’s first 3D printed mascara!) for long, luscious, and drama-fueled lashes.
It’s then time to frame your eyes with beautiful brows. Using light and upward strokes, define them with the long-wear brow pencil before brushing them and setting them in place with a few strokes of the ‘Le Gel Sourcils’ brow gel.
Lips were kept au naturel to really let the eyes do all the talking. It’s as simple as coating your pout with the ‘Rouge Coco Baume’ to hydrate and moisturize before using the ‘Rouge Allure Lip Color in Rouge Ingénue’ for a subtle hint of nude color.
