Eye shadow fans should be all over the Chanel Fall 2014 makeup collection, Etats Poetiques, which hits Canadian counters mid-August. Along with a neutral shadow quad, new releases include six shades of Ombre Essentielle eye shadow singles, and a helpful how-to with Lisa Eldridge. We've shown you the Chanel Fall 2014 nails, swatched here by manigeek Karen. Here's the makeup.
chanel fall 2014 makeup: collection etats poetiques
Anyone else getting an '80s vibe? I know I've been playing with colour lately, but I don't think I'd wear this look myself. Lovely on model Vanessa Axente, but harder to wear successfully for most women after 40. What do you think?
The Chanel Fall 2014 makeup collection Etats Poetiques hasn't forgotten how many of us love our neutrals. Hence the Chanel Les 4 Ombres in Poesie ($62 at thebay.com). Try it with this amazingly simple tutorial on extending the shape of your eyes to make them look larger.
Six new Ombre Essentielle eye shadow singles in the Chanel Fall 2014 makeup collection Etats Poetiques include two limited-edition shades. This is one of them, Chanel 102 Sensation ($34 at thebay.com and $29.50 at nordstrom.com).
The mid-tone plum hue of this Chanel 106 Hesitation ($34 at thebay.comand $29.50 at nordstrom.com) should be particularly pretty against blue, hazel or green eyes. Here, peek at the other three shades, 108 Exaltation (raspberry), 112 Pulsion (deep plum) and 114 Admiration (gold).
Who else loves a felt-tip pen eyeliner? This is the Chanel Eyeliner Pen in Brun ($42 at thebay.com and $35 at nordstrom.com); it also comes in Noir. Such an easy route to drama as you work your way up the formula chain. (I put gel liner at the top in terms of skill required, although the Benefit They're Real Push-Up Liner made it easier for me. For real.)
The Chanel Fall 2014 makeup collection Etats Poetiques includes one powder blush, Chanel Joues Contrastes in Innocence ($48 at thebay.com and $45 at nordstrom.com). The way the light hit the dome in this shot makes it look a bit paler than it really is. The Chanel tutorial with Lisa Eldridge will give you a good idea of its on-skin colour.
Four gorgeous lip shades are part of the Chanel Fall 2014 makeup collection Etats Poetiques. These are Rouge Coco Shine 95 Viva (limited edition, $39 at thebay.com and $35 at nordstrom.com ), a bright raspberry, and Rouge Coco Shine 96 Aura ($39 at thebay.com and $35 at nordstrom.com), a deep seductive plum. See the other two, 93 Intime and 94 Confident here.
One of two Levre Scintillantes shades in the Etats Poetiques range is this limited-edition iridescent rose-gold shimmer, Chanel Glossimer 191 Songe ($31 at TheBay.com and $25.50 at nordstrom.com). The other is 189 Rose Reve.
Apologies to Lisa Eldridge for this less-than-ideal screen grab of her in the some of the Etats Poetiques collection shades. You can see the full Lisa Eldridge Chanel Fall 2014 tutorial here.
