I’m happy to announce it’s time for the next Chanel makeup collection!
Le Rouge is the first for Lucia Pica, their new Global Creative Makeup and Colour Designer. Lucia is a huge fan of red hues, (as was the house’s founder: Coco Chanel launched her first red lipstick back in 1924) and has managed to design an entire collection around the shade, and the results are breathtaking! (Bear in mind that the collection was developed for the northern hemisphere Fall, which it why it may seem a bit at odds with the spring season we’re coming in to.)
The collection covers an opulent array of shadows, lipsticks, liners and varnishes, ranging from true bright reds, through to rusty coppers and rich plums.
Some of the eye shades are, perhaps, not for the fainthearted, but red is actually quite easy to wear, as long as you keep the rest of your makeup to a minimum.
The collection is in stores now, and looks a little something like this:
