“Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside, I do like to be beside the sea” – especially when it comes with a side of Chanel. The theme for the fashion house’s Spring/Summer 2019 show was ‘Chanel by the Sea’, and saw models take to the (actual) sand as they walked through waves under the watchful eyes of Chanel-clad lifeguards.

So, naturally, the beauty look complemented this theme perfectly, with Lucia Pica – Chanel’s Global Creative Makeup and Color Designer – and her team creating a beach beauty look we’d wear both on and off the sand. Read on to discover the key Chanel beauty products that were used and how to get the look yourself.

Skin

After properly prepping your skin by cleansing, toning, and moisturizing, 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. It’s also 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’ that provides a sheer, lightweight veil of coverage and keeps your makeup looking fresher for longer. Finish your face by using the multitasking ‘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 beachy glow to your skin.

Eyes

Eyes were subtly defined using the softer shades of the stunning new ‘Les 9 Ombres Multi-Effects Eyeshadow Palette in Quintessence’. Pica then applied the brand new transparent ‘Baume Essentiel’ over the top for a lived-in, slightly glossy effect. The bad news? Both products aren’t available until next spring, but trust us, they’ll be well worth the wait.

Add a coat or two of the ‘Le Volume Revolution de Chanel’ mascara to define your lashes before adding the final touch: your brows. Add subtle definition by using light, upward strokes 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

The look centered around the lips and Pica’s favorite spring/summer hue: the new neon pink-coral ‘Infra Rose’ lipstick. Sadly, we have to wait for that one too, but we predict it will be our summer staple. Lips had a matte, slightly blurred effect for a softer and more natural feel that was achieved by applying not one, not two, but three layers of the lip color over a layer of blotting powder. If you’re not powdering your pout before your lippy next season, you’re not doing it right.
