Creating a subtle date night beauty look with the Chanel Le Blanc 2019 collection Pierres de Lumiere releases. Perfect for a natural makeup look.
MY 2019 VALENTINES BEAUTY LOOK
Last week I went back into the Chanel Beauty boutique to try out the new Chanel Le Blanc 2019 collection Pierres de Lumiere. It launched just in time for Valentine’s Day, which is what I had this look done for. Actually, we were a day early but since Mario and I had the afternoon free we had a late long lunch to celebrate. (Cue roses and delicious honey cake!)
Below is the full look Zara from the Chanel Boutique in Claremont created for me, with a bold bright lip colour. By the time I got home and shot a few extra pictures, I’d taken off the bold lip because I’d wanted to see the look with a subtle nude shade. I loved either option but will share more of this bold lip outfit in another post. Either was a beautiful, subtle look for any date night.
Oh and if you are now crazing honey cake, my bad! This was at The Flour Factory and it was amazing!
PIERRES DE LUMIERE
Of the Chanel Le Blanc 2019 collection Pierres de Lumiere releases, I was probably most taken by the White Opal highlight with a touch of the transparent Baume Essentiel on top. The White Opal is pearlescent and makes for a soft highlight. Because Zara and I always talk about beauty trends and what we have seen our favourite makeup artists creating on Instagram, we decided to add a touch of gloss over the top too.
New to Chanel and very on-trend is the two shades of Baume Essentiel. They are essentially a glossy balm to wear on your eyelids for that gloss finish, lips or highlight. Zara just used it along the top part of my cheekbone, where I usually highlight. It picked up really well on camera.
A SUBTLE DATE NIGHT BEAUTY LOOK
What can I say?! I was seriously impressed with the Tweed Beige blush! Which as the name suggests, is baked to look like the Chanel tweed. How cool is that? It has a shimmer through it so creates a beautiful light catching blush or bronzer. Since I am probably not going to be able to afford one of those insanely stunning Chanel tweed jackets anytime soon, this might be the closest I get!
For the pretty, subtle eye look, Zara used a cream eyeshadow in Pierre de Rose and the Quadra Palette 314 Lueurs Ambrees. The bold orangey-red matte liquid lip colour Rouge Allure Ink in Cornalie is fresh and felt vibrant with the subtle eye-look. It reminds me a bit of the So Chaud Mac Matte lipstick without being as drying. And the Rouge Allure Ink lasted for our long lunch too, so I was very impressed!
Finally, with the release of two new nail colours in a subtle shimmer, I had to buy the share Eau de Nacre. It reminded me so much of something my Nana would have worn. You guys already know I miss her so it’s nice to be reminded of her when I look down at my hands.
MY NEXT SPLURGE WILL BE…
One very cool thing that Zara did while she was doing my eye makeup was pop on some of the uber cool eye patches under my eyes. I wish I’d snapped a mirror pic of how cool these look on! You may have seen them on Pinterest. They are the Firming Anti-Wrinkle Flash Eye Revitaliser. These also come with a roll-on anti-aging serum with a whole lot of vitamin-C to reduce dark circles and puffiness in all of about five minutes. I have to save up for these!!
Anyway, what did you do for Valentine’s Day? Is it something you celebrate? We ended up working on the actual day but later had a really nice homemade dinner by candlelight outside. With one of my Spotify playlists in the background, it was so nice. I’d rather stay in than battle crowded restaurants on Valentine’s Day. Would love to hear your thoughts or rituals!
