Chanel Couture Inspired Makeup Look

Chanel Couture Inspired Makeup

What you need: 
  • A glitter eyeliner, shadow stick, or eye shadow of some sort 
  • A light pink blush and lip color
  • Liquid or gel eyeliner 
  • Mascara of your choice 

This makeup look is relatively simple to re-create. There are a few ways you can go about it but there are a few basic steps. 
  1. First off, apply a very simple face makeup. Keep it to concealer, foundation, powder, and a very light and natural blush. For Chanel's makeup look the face seems pretty bare and natural. So skip a bright cheek, highlighter, or any bronzers. 
  2. Next step is the cat eye. To create a cat eye choose between either liquid or gel eyeliner. From experience those work the best. Simple line your upper lash line first then make a relatively small wing. If you wanted to switch up the look you could make the wing more dramatic. 
  3. Then, you need to add the glitter! There are a few ways you can accomplish this glitter look. First is to use a product like Urban Decay's heavy metal. Essentially it is a glitter liquid liner. So, it will go on pretty easy and smoothly. Or, you could use a glitter eye shadow and use a thin brush to swipe it across your lower lash line. Like I said, there are many ways that you can achieve this look with products you may already have. 
  4. Finish off your eye look with a coat of your favorite mascara. 
  5. For a final touch use a nude pink lip color. Remember to keep it super natural!
