Chanel says: Intense pink, the universal shade of happiness..!!

I wrote about Chanel Spring 2012 nail polishes before. Chanel named their 2012 nail polishes after the months of spring. April, May and June…!! Here is my previous post about these dream shades==> Click..!! Click..!!

I already fell in love with June. June, which is a lovely creamy pastel apricot color was my favorite. But after trying May on, I totally changed my mind. I bought May, which is a soft, sweet baby pink.

According to Chanel, May is an “intense pink, the universal shade of happiness.” It is not an intense pink but I totally agree about this being a happy color. May is so girly and innocent. Try it yourself..!! :)

November favorites from Chanel

Chanel Le Vernis, Peridot  #531

A release for Fall 2011 Chanel collection..!! This color is designed to add an intense flash of shifting color to your dark winter wardrobe. The color changes as the light plays across the surface of the nail.  There is a strong clear metallic peridot-green-gold effect with a metallic sparkle.

I loved Peridot. It is so dramatic and unusual. And it is a perfect match with black. Here it is on my fingers;

Chanel Precision Eyelash Curler

Precision Eyelash curler is a limited edition product from Chanels Sophisticated Eye Collection. The curler is all black, made in Japan, and has a very lightweight feel. It arrives in an oversized box with two replacement pads, so you get a total of 3 (that’s including the one on the curler itself). Brilliant..!!

Chanel Presicion eyelash curler is delivering beautiful lift and intense curves, the arc shape of the precision eyelash curler fits perfectly against the eyelid. Chanel fans should definetely try it..!! Remember it is a limited edition. :)

Chanel Illusion d’Ombre

These new cream-gel eyeshadow called Illusion d’Ombre come in 6 shades this fall. These are small potted shadows with a twist-off lid and small capped angled brush.

The color I have chosen is Illusoire - rich pigmented and smokey with multi-dimensional sparkles.

Chanel S/S 2012 nail polishes

It is amazingly sunny for an October month here in Copenhagen. It is not warm, but sunny. Those who live in Scandinavia know what I am talking about. :) Because of the shining sun we still want warm and glowing colors.

It would have been nice, if I could have used one of the new Chanel S/S 2012 nail polishes right now. I loved them..!! Chanel named their 2012 nail polishes after the months of spring. April, May and June. I already fell in love with june. June is a lovely creamy pastel apricol color. I can not wait for spring. Which is your favorite?

 

Orange lips..!!

Orange is the must have color for lips this summer..!! The Spring/Summer 2011 runway, fashion magazines, catalogs and ads are full of models with orange lips. What about you?? Have you tried this fun color?

We have to admit that orange is definitely an intimidating color for many but it is surprisingly wearable. You just have to give it a chance. :)

How to pull of orange lips perfectly..!!

I have some great tips on how to make this exciting color work for you. Here are they;

  • Keep it clean ..!!

Your lips have to be the focus point of your look.  It is not a good idea to use bold colors for the rest of your face. Make it simple. It is so easy to look overdone and cheap. Just a little champagne eyeshadow, thick layer of mascara and some bronzer on your cheeks. You will be rocking with orange lips..

  • Start with a Lip Gloss

An orangey lip gloss is a good start for those who are less brave to try an orange lipstick. It is less vibrant and very suitable for a day make up. Last but not least it looks amazing with summer tan..!!

  • Consider your skintone

Fair Skintones: If you have a fair skintone, go for a lipgloss. Peach tones and light oranges make wonders on pale complexions.

Medium Skintones: If you have a medium skintone, you can pull off everything..!! A bold vibrant orange lipstick or a sheer lipgloss.. Find something that you feel yourself comfortable.

Dark Skintones: If you have a dark skintone, you will look wonderfull with warmer shades of orange. You can also be bold and pull of a very vibrant orange lipstick.

  • What about coral??

Coral is technically orange.. ;) It is just less intimidating. It works for everyone..!!
