I know, I know! Summer is the season we’re excited for right now but I also want to get a heads up on fall 2010’s trends. Chanel‘s 2010-2011 fashion show included models donning some extreme makeup. While I wouldn’t suggest recopying the exact same smudged eye makeup look for everyday, a more wearable version of Chanel’s look is on trend for 2010.
As I already mentioned last week when I showed you Lancôme’s smoky eye, the intense eye is h-o-t! Makeup trends for fall (which we can start sporting now to be ahead of the game) are all about the eyes.
Chanel‘s models were made up with Les 4 Ombres eyeshadow in Enigma, which is an all-new palette for fall. Can’t wait to try it out myself. To get this runway-ready look, cover your lower eyelid and the crease with a dark silver or nearly black shade. Save the darkest black for tracing the contour of the eyes. Smudge the dark shade around the crease to give it a more wearable touch.
Of course, with a trend as intense as this one, it’s important to maintain a balance. Since the eyes are front and centre, keep your complexion and lips neutral. Chanel models sported flawless complexions with the help of corrector and loose powder. Apply corrector or concealer directly on imperfections and finish off with a light veil of loose powder to sculpt the face and leave it with a smooth finish. To add some subtle colour, Chanel used their new blush, Joues Contraste in Pink Cloud and Rose Temptation, both of which are totally new for fall 2010.
The lips are colour-free with only a touch lip balm to keep them hydrated and smooth. The key to pulling off this look is balance. You might want to skip on eye makeup out to your temples, but the Chanel runway is definitely inspiring some of the upcoming season’s trendiest looks.
Personally, I can’t wait to get Chanel’s new fall products. I’m a huge fan. Which Chanel products are your favourites?
