Chanel Makeover

This past Sunday my Chanel Saks associate Michael offered to do my makeup (and who would say no to that?). Michael has known me forever, and he enjoys creating looks that I would never do myself.

This time, he gave me a fierce winged liner, and though the chances of my successfully recreating the look are low, they’ll be zero without notes and pictures.

To start with, I got the full Chanel skincare treatment (Lotion Confort toner, Hydramax moisturizing serum, Ultra Correction Line Repair moisturizer and eye cream). Did you know Chanel makes eye masks? The product is called Ultra Correction Total Eye Revitalizer, and comes with a rollerball of fluid, and a set of disposable eye masks. I love eye masks.

ChanelMichael used Beige eye base on my lids. He put Liberty eyeshadow from my lashline to just below my browbone. Then he used Ivory eyeshadow to highlight my brow. He also added Ivory at my lashline (blended with Liberty). Finally, he used Heather Rose on the inner 2/3 of my crease.

The eyeliner is the non-sparkly side of Chanel’s Noir-Lame cake liner (wetted with Trish McEvoy’s Finish Line). On my bottom waterline he used Chanel’s Ebene waterproof pencil. The mascara is Inimitable Intense.

ChanelMy foundation is actually a blend of Vitalumiere Aqua in B10 and BR10 (with Rosee powder on top). The concealer is La Prairie’s Caviar in Ivoire. It was a shade too light, so he used Peche Tendre powder on top. Cheeks are Desert Corail Bronzer and Orchid Rose Joues Contraste blush. Lips are Beige lipliner (all over) with a mix of Genie Extrait de Gloss and Futile Glossimer.

I think I’ll try this one at home (though I can’t promise I’ll publish the results). How about you? Ready to try a dramatic winged liner?

    I am in LOVE with that winged eye! love the shape he did!

  • I LOVE dramatic winged liner, it’s a look I do quite often – I do love the shape Michael did but I’m not sure I’d be able to do it this way on myself. I also like the eyeshadow placement, and this looks so pretty on you!

    I love it! I need to find a better Chanel counter though. When I let my local one do my makeup I swore she put liquid liner and pencil liner on me and when I looked in the mirror it had disappeared! What the hey?!
