My Look: Pool Party

This is THE bikini of the summer season. CHANEL’s bi-color summer essential from the S/S 2022 runway has been probably the most instagrammed two-piece swimsuit so far. Here you see me wearing it to a pool party at my house.

My look: Striped crochet-knit halterneck maxi dressicon by Missoni, bi-color bikini (Look 3 from the S/S 2022 collection), yellow and orange Deauville beach tote, straw straw visor hat, earrings and white and pink sneakers, by CHANEL.

On my skin: Les Beiges Huile Illuminatrice by CHANEL Beauty.

CHANEL Les Beiges Complexion

This post is not sponsored, however I got the products to try and I am completely in love. The perfect products for summer to achieve a healthy, lightweight glow. Let me give you some detailed information.

LES BEIGES makeup line has made natural a style in its own right. In a way that no other line does, it recalls Mademoiselle Chanel’s free spirit and breaks with tradition to reveal a fresh, luminous complexion, pure and simple. Makeup is made easy, intuitive. Skin is as radiant as if you had spent a day in the great outdoors. Beauty is universal and effortless.
By means of lightweight, extremely buildable formulas, LES BEIGES has redefined both the texture of face makeup and how we apply it. A promise of authentic elegance. A promise to get back to basics.

In 2019, WATER-FRESH TINT upended women’s face makeup rituals. For the very first time, a fresh, water-based formula containing micro-droplet pigments was developed. Micro-droplets melt on contact with skin, evening out the complexion with a sheer finish. With this innovation, microfluidic technology has opened up a host of possibilities for cosmetics; it has led to an entirely new generation of face makeup products featuring lightweight formulas, freed of all non-essential ingredients.
The microfluidic technology revolution continues into 2022, with two new products. To supplement LES BEIGES face makeup ritual, CHANEL created two products complete with unique application techniques: WATER-FRESH COMPLEXION TOUCH, a multi-use concealer that delivers natural- looking results, and WATER-FRESH BLUSH, a «blush 2.0» for rosy cheeks.

This product can be applied like a concealer, for targeted correction as needed, or like a foundation, over the entire face. The joy of a fresh, luminous complexion; a bare-skin effect for natural-looking makeup.
WATER-FRESH COMPLEXION TOUCH is composed of an aqueous phase, enriched in hydrating and protective naturally derived active ingredients and ultra-lightweight micro-droplet pigments. It diminishes the appearance of imperfections without compromising on comfort. Halfway between a foundation and a concealer, WATER-FRESH COMPLEXION TOUCH visibly improves the look of skin thanks to a high concentration of pigment. It delivers a supremely weightless fresh feeling to the skin.

To melt the micro-droplets and release their pigment, simply blend the formula on the back of the hand for several seconds before applying. Immediately after application, the skin looks more even and smooth. It is more luminous, and appears refreshed. Visible imperfections such as pores, redness, and dark circles are reduced v visibly. After 8 hours, the skin appears more comfortable and plump. WATER-FRESH COMPLEXION TOUCH has antioxidant and anti-pollution properties, to enhance the skin as well as protect it.

WATER-FRESH COMPLEXION TOUCH is available in a range of 8 shades.
B10, B20, B30, B40, B50, B60, B80, BD121.
CHF 78.00

The micro-droplet pigments in this lightweight gel blush blend seamlessly with the skin for a delicately rosy glow, a flushed cheek look, and immediate comfort. The new blush by CHANEL imparts subtle color to the cheeks without drying out the skin. Its water-based texture delivers a healthy glow effect that lasts all day. After applying WATER- FRESH TINT and WATER-FRESH COMPLEXION TOUCH, WATER-FRESH BLUSH enhances the look with an instantaneous healthy glow. It is quick and intuitive to apply with either your fingers or a brush. Within seconds, the formula melts into the skin, so pleasant and weightless that you may forget you are wearing makeup at all.
WATER-FRESH BLUSH is enriched with tamarind seed extract, a naturally derived active ingredient that helps regulate the skin’s moisture balance for a healthy glow. The complexion is instantly more radiant and appears immediately refreshed.

LES BEIGES face makeup ritual now comprises three products that were inspired by microfluidic technology and designed as perfect complements. First, WATER-FRESH TINT sits delicately on the face like a skin tone-evening veil, for a radiant, refreshed appearance. Next, WATER-FRESH COMPLEXION TOUCH provides additional coverage wherever it is needed, creating a flawless complexion without weighing down the skin. The final touch, WATER-FRESH BLUSH, gives cheeks a rosy flush —a guaranteed healthy glow.

WATER-FRESH BLUSH is available in 6 shades, designed to suit every skin tone.
LIGHT PEACH a rosy peach
WARM PINK a beige pink
LIGHT PINK a light, fresh pink
INTENSE CORAL an intense coral red
DEEP APRICOT an intense apricot
DEEP BRONZE a terracotta brown
CHF 62.-

Both products are available now and I can highly recommend them.
