While bold lipstick has been a big push through spring and summer, and you will see deep rouge lips from other brands, it seems for fall Chanel is lightening their makeup trends. Their fall Rouge Coco lipsticks are paler shades of pink and peach to offset soft smokey grey eyes.
Their Fall 2010 makeup collection is rife with chocolate grays, deep plums and smoldering khakis. The contrast of soft lips and heavy eyes pays tribute to Coco Chanel’s proclivity for the bold contrasts that first defined her iconic style.
When I hear Chanel makeup I always wonder what new “the new statement-maker of the season” nail colour will be in the mix. Headlining the collection is Le Vernis Nail Colour in Paradoxal, a dark gray-violet.
For local Vancouver gals you can now search these out at the new Chanel counter at Holt Renfrew. I was just there for a lovely little launch. Lots of media friends, lots of champagne.
