Here is your preview of the beautiful Chanel Summer 2012 Makeup Collection:

Peter Philips, Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, replicates the natural glow of sunbathed skin with luminous bronze, gold and copper tones. Playing up a radiant complexion: Chanel embraces the season with perfect lips and nail shades, from fresh neutral shades to bright coral hues. I am pretty sure that the nail polishes will become a hit worldwide again.
