I know were not ready to wave buh-bye to the summer, but already the AW15 beauty drops are coming our way. Autumn is always a wonderful season for make-up and this year is no different, with some covetable bits and pieces headed to a beauty counter near you.
The Chanel autumn collection has landed on counters nationwide since 14th August. This collection sums up everything that’s wonderful about this coming season and, while pretty much everything in the collection is covetable and wearable, there are two really special eye-shadow palettes that are gorgeous.
Entrelacs, €56, is a limited edition palette of five matte and satin shadows in the most delicious neutral shades, from velvety beige to deep chocolaty brown. If golden khaki, copper and peach are more to your liking, then check out Les 4 Ombres in Tisse d’Automne, €50 – these colours are really flattering on Celtic skin-tones.
The deep brown Le Vernis nail polish in Chataigne may be limited edition, but the “It” nail shade for autumn will be Vert Obscur, a mysterious and moody blackened blue-green – wear it super shiny or with the brand’s velvet top coat for a matte effect. There’s also a brick red, Ecorse Sanguine, there €23.50 each.
The new season make-up range from Bobbi Brown nail offerings in the shimmering Smoking Topaz or stunning sophisticated Greige, both €15.
Finally, the limited edition Pretty Day and Pretty Night palettes from Clarins, €38, are both stunning and worth the investment. The new shades of Ombre Matte single shadows that have really gotten my attention – especially Heather, €22.50, a gorgeous mauvey taupe that manages to be edgy and little bit chic, all at the same time. And the formula of these cream-to-powder shadows is unreal, smooth and blend-able, with a long-lasting matte finish.
Till next time Ladies!!!
