Chanel are informing us it’s the Summer of Glow, and whilst we sit here in Australia shivering, chanting ‘Winter Is Coming’ we’re ready to fake it ’til we make it. The Les Beige collection is coming to our shores on May 31, with a promise of “an airy and dazzling summer (glow)”. The collection is inspired by the French Riviera and all that chilled out fabulousness, yachts gliding along a glistening coast against the Mediterranean. Where we – and the rest of the world – would rather be. Nothing Chanel can’t fix. Les Beige is the ultimate glow kit including a limited edition light ‘Healthy Glow Illuminating Powder’ that comes in medium light shade ‘Sand’ and an intense ‘Sunset’ to a discreet glow created with hydrating and antioxidant kalanchoe extract. Nice. For high glow powder, the Sheer Healthy Glow Highlighting Fluid is an iridescent liquid to be dabbed on to the high points of the face for a delicate dewy finish. There is a Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream in Soleil Tan, reminiscent of the cult bronzer from the brand. The gel-cream glides on like velvet and can be used to contour or for a light all-over look. The warmest eyeshadow palette to come in a Chanel makeup collection is here, revving up the glow with coral, golden, peach and bronzed brown shades. Serious ultralight beam. The collection is complete with a Healthy Glow Balm in warm and an iconic duo of nail polishes in Cruise and Sailor – a hot coral and an electric sunset orange. The European holiday we knew we needed and had to cancel. Chanel beauty is the true saviour of 2020. In the fitting words of Drake: “Watch out for me, I’m ’bout to glow”.
