Thinking of glamour and tans
Wall story; Shine on
They say Coco Chanel wore white camellia accessories because they reflected pure light on to her skin. But for a woman with more than a few idiosyncrasies, Chanel certainly proved to be one of the most influential beauty luminaries of her time. Integral to her heritage was that she knew how to pick (and create) a trend, a skill the House of Chanel certainly didn’t lose when she died nearly five decades ago. The brand’s latest collection includes enamels, lipsticks and shadow shades beautifully matched to the season and all eminently covetable. Why buy? As if treating yourself with a luxe beauty product wasn’t a good enough reason.
There may be less sun in winter to create a tan but that doesn’t mean you’re required to walk around looking like you’ve stepped from the pages of the Vampire Chronicles. Bondi Sands’ three-product GLO collection is the latest in a line-up of faux tanners from the Aussie brand to add a pretty even glow to pale winter skin. Choose from either a matte or shimmery one-day tanner topped off with Glo Gloss Finishing Glow, a makeup-like highlighter that creates a bronzed, dewy look. All products are $23 and on counter this month.
Why buy? Invest in natural-looking luminosity from the world’s best-selling self-tan brand.
