Being on quarantine has made us appreciate the power of a good tan and a little vitamin D. Chanel’s newest Les Beiges Summer of Glow makeup collection – it spans a cushion foundation, highlighting fluid, eyeshadow palette, lip balm and nail polish – aims to recreate that healthy holiday glow as though you just returned from a summer holiday in the French Riviera.
The star of the collection is the limited-edition Healthy Glow Touch Foundation ($99) – a cushion compact with a sheer finish that is made from a lightweight water-infused gel-like emulsion containing 56 per cent H20 to keep skin feeling fresh and hydrated. The formulation also contains kalanchoe (a type of succulent) extract and SPF 25 to help shield the skin against sun damage and free radicals.
Meanwhile, the Sheer Healthy Glow Highlighting Fluid ($85) is dubbed the “complexion enhancer” as it gives skin a subtle luminous veil with a light golden tint. To complete that effortless sheen, the collection has added the Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palette ($107), Les Beiges Healthy Glow Lip Balm ($52) and Les Beiges Le Vernis ($41). Plus, the warm, fresh shades of light pinks and browns in the eyeshadow palette, and the coral hues of its lip balm and nail polish means you can maintain that elusive holiday glow year-round, come social distancing or not.
Chanel’s Les Beiges Summer of Glow collection will be available at all Chanel Fragrance and Beauty boutiques and counters from July 3.
