If you’ve picked up a glossy this month, you can’t possibly have missed the new Chanel spring/summer print campaign. Models Saskia de Brauw and Joan Smalls ooze sophisticated glamour as they climb & balance in thousands of pounds of Chanel finery.
Lagerfeld specialises in timeless glamour, and this season he seems to have excelled himself. What’s that? You’d like a sneaky, behind the scenes peek at how the campaign was made? Oh, ok then. As it’s you. Watch this…
Riviera perfection. Now, if your January budget doesn’t quite stretch to a new Chanel suit, there are plenty of other ways to get this look! Let’s start with the hair.
Wash, condition & comb your hair through. When it’s still a little bit damp, run pomade through to the tips. Aveda’s Brilliant Pomade is perfect for this. Comb through & curl into a bun, like this:
(Pearls optional!) Pin with as many bobby pins as it takes. Try & match these to your natural hair colour, Boots do a great selection. Now let’s move on to makeup. Apply your normal foundation, but not too much. Use a few dabs of Touche Eclait under your eyes for that ‘wide awake, I slept for 14 hours last night’ look. Next you’ll need to use a brush to dust shimmery, white eyeshadow all the way up to the brow line.
Apply this along your top lash line, from the very inside corner to the edge & give it a very gentle flick at the end. Next, sweep on a generous coating of your favourite mascara to your top lashes & skip the bottom ones.
