THE EYE HAS TO TRAVEL Inspiration for Chanel’s summer make-up collection comes from the sunny fronds and glinting waters of the Côte d’Azur. By Li Ying Lim.
The golden age of the Twenties was a time for adventure and decadence, and where better than the French Riviera for such lurid escapades? Gabrielle Chanel most definitely favoured its crisp white clouds, sapphire seas, and gilded shores, and the latest summer make-up collection pays ode to this Mediterranean beauty. Eyes are shades of palm-leaf green and sun-kissed bronze; complexions are luminous, glowing with a satin sheen; lips mirror the glimmering oasis, of pink
and coral, dappled in sunlight. Divine. Simply divine.
