Printemps Precieux de Chanel @ Harrods! Xx

So I went to the Chanel Counter at the White Hall, 
Harrods for a make over
with the brilliant Sydney to try out
the Brand New Spring make up collection
Printemps Precieux de Chanel! Xx 

Check my Post for the full Collection:

After thoroughly cleansing, and moisturising my Face,
with Ultra Correction Lift Day Cream £88

Sydney then started on my Eyes.
With a Dark smoky eye Sydney always prefers
to finish with the Foundation for a cleaner result.

She began by drawing along the edge of my
upper lashes and outwards and upwards 
to widen and elongate the eye,
 with the Stylo Yeux Waterproof 
in Santal which is a beautiful chocolate brown pencil
shot with golden sparkles.
Using the new quad Les 4 Ombres Raffinement,
and starting with the 2nd darkest shade, 
the brown with a hint of violet (top left in the picture below), 
Sydney shaded in the whole of my eyelid and socket.
She then mixed the two paler shades on the brow
bone and thoroughly blended. 
Finally she emphasised the outer
corners and sockets with the very darkest shade 
bringing the shape up to a point.
The brown shade (top left) from Les 4 Ombres Raffinement 
was brushed under the eye and emphasised with the
Stylo Yeux Waterproof in Santal (above)
Then Sydney dried upper and lower waterline
with a cotton bud and applied 
stylo Yeux Waterproof in the beautiful shade
Or Rose - a shimmering light rosy beige which helps widen the eyes.
Mascara is Chanel Inimitable Intense Volume Length
Curl Separation Mascara £23

Sydney chose to draw a structured brow
with the eyebrow palette:
Le Sourcil de Chanel £42
to give more Drama to my look.

After the Eyes, Sydney then applies the Foundation
which is Vita Lumiere Aqua in 30 and then the incredible
Poudre Signee de Chanel highlighting powder
on my upper cheekbones for a subtle shimmering effect.

The Blush with this collection is absolutely gorgeous and this,
Joues contrasts Frivole - a warm luminous apricot shade
is applied on the apples of my cheeks

Sydney completes my look with a structured lip 
in the gorgeous matt Tangerine Shade
Rouge Allure Velvet La Favourite
which clashes gorgeously with my ruby earrings.

I am loving my Printemps Precieux Look

Check Lisa Eldridge's Video Tutorial
on the Spring collection on YouTube below:

Lisa uses the same products and the gorgeous
nail varnish in Accessoire which is similar
to Chanel's iconic Rouge Noir and looks
incredible with La Favourite Tangerine lips


I tried out different, and more natural look 
from the Printemps Precieux Collection 
at the Chanel Counter in Bentalls, Kingston 
where Melody did my Makeup

 She again used the Les 4 Ombres Raffinement, 
Stylo Yeux Waterproof in Santal,
used the Vita Lumiere Aqua foundation 
in a slightly darker shade 40,
Poudre Signee de Chanel highlighting powder,
and again the gorgeous Joues Contrastes in Frivole.
My eyebrows here are more natural though Melody has used
the same Chanel Eyebrow Palette: Le Sourcil de Chanel

Les 4 Ombres Raffinement 
Stylo Yeux Waterproof in Santal 
These are two must haves from the Printemps Precieux Collection
along with one of the accent Rouge allure Velvet Lipsticks
in La Favourite - the Tangerine Shade
 L’ÉCLATANTE, a shocking pink that matches the FRACAS nail polish.

My lips here are in Rouge Allure
CAPTIVANTE which is a rich amber brown with shimmers of copper,
ATTIRANCE a coppery beige gloss.

I am loving both my Printemps Precieux de Chanel looks.
