20 years ago Chanel’s Rouge Noir was the big beauty story and in the decades since it has claimed its place as a cult nail polish, season after season. For the Holiday 2015 make-up collection, the Chanel Make-up Creation Studio has paid homage to Rouge Noir and built a whole collection around it. The star is the Signe Particulier palette (£44). This palette of four eyeshadows offers a vibrant, soft, luminous and dark echo of the iconic colour. Revolving around a deep, luminous and matte rouge noir, a warm saffron gold lights up makeup, a velvety parma violet adds a touch of softness and a slightly rosy satiny beige delivers a dash of light. Each of these eyeshadows can be used on its own or in a duo for intense eyes or a blend of colours. For the skin there’s Joues Contraste Lumiere 12 Coups de Minuit (£31), that illuminates cheekbones with a halo of light. The soft texture of this beige highlighter catches the light and accentuates contours. It can be applied on its own in the morning for a fresh cheek effect and over a slightly darker shade of Joues Contraste. As a highlighter, it can also be applied to areas that catch the light: on top of cheekbones, between eyebrows, on the chin, in the dip of the décolleté and on the top of shoulders. Chanel’s classic Illusion D’Ombre cream shadow now comes in Rouge Noir for this collection (£25). A rich garnet red, it’s perfect for a smoky eye look when used with Rouge Noir Le Volume De Chanel (£25), deep garnet shimmers enhance the intense black. The Rouge Noir mascara can be applied on its own for intense rouge noir glimmers or layered over Le Volume Ultranoir De Chanel Noir Khôl Mascara on the tips of lashes. Le Crayon Yeux is an intense tone-on-tone line of Le Crayon Khol Rouge Noir (£17). For a touch of light, Le Crayon Yeux Or Safran revisits the radiance of golden tones found in the palette. For the lips you can choose nude or red, Rouge Allure Vaporeuse (£26) is an innocent pink with a hint of parma violet whereas Rouge Allure Velvet La Merveilleuse, is a deep raspberry red. The Levres Scintillantes glosses (£22) are two delicate and ultra-luminous shades. Rose de Lune, a pale pink with silver shimmers and Étincelle is rouge noir in a sheer version sprinkled with gold.
The Makeup Revolution Aqua Priming Base (£6) is a lightweight spray primer providing the perfect base underneath make-up. This easily absorbed water, enchanced with multi-vitamins hydrates skin for hours revitalising the complexion and boosting radiance all in one spritz. Simply hold bottle 8 to 10 inches away from face and spray a light mist distributing easily across the skin.
For radiant, glowing, beautiful skin try BECCA’s hero Shimmering Skin Perfector®. The Shimmering Skin Perfector® Poured (£30) is a luxurious crème formula available in five shades. Pigment rich crème imparts a hint of mattified luminosity whilst the velvety texture melts into the skin and creates a soft, sophisticated glow.
Clinique has unveiled their new Quickliner for Lips Intense (£14.50) and Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer shade extensions to redefine what it means to have the contoured lip. Quickliner for Lips Intense, a new lip liner that delivers a soft creamy texture and convenient application with intense colour pay. This new formula does double duty by contouring the lip line and extending the life of the lipstick application. The combination of ingredients in the formula create an instant creamy glide-on feel that provides up to 12 hours of comfortable and durable wear with just one easy stroke.
