Nuit Infinie de Chanel with Mary Greenwell @ the Covent Garden Store! Xx

So I went down to the Chanel Covent Garden Store
for a Special Make up Consultation with
the fabulous and brilliant Mary Greenwell
who was using the new Nuit Infinie de Chanel
Christmas 2013 Collection.

Now I can impart the magical Chanel products 
that Mary used and the order she used them, but I would be blessed
 if I really could tell you exactly how Mary transformed
 my face to make it look so wonderful.

Those are some of the best kept secrets in the business. 
It has of course to do with years of experience, 
a keen creative eye, attention to detail
 and being extremely talented at what she does.

What I do know is that she worked the mascara right to the very roots and 
Produced the most wonderful shape to my lashes with 
Chanel's wonder Mascara Volume de Chanel 

After a very light moisturising Mary applied Correcteur Perfection in 10 Beige Clair
under my eyes.
undereye concealer 10 Beige Clair - the palest!! Xx
Then the New Powder foundation 
Matt Lumiere in No 20
 with Le Beige 30
Then Mary used the new Illusion D'Ombre in Fatal 837(right) which is a
gorgeous deep red copper shade.  She applied this all over the lid and up to the crease
with her finger angling up at the corners to give a great shape.
Using 740 Ombres Contraste Duo in Misty Soft (left) Mary accentuated
 the edges of the lids with the darker violet shade.

I have never had my Mascara so expertly and beautifully applied.
 Using Le Volume de Chanel Mascara worked right 
into the roots of my lashes
which gave a falsh lash effect and brushed right 
to the tip to give them full length and flare.

My cheeks are Joues Contrastes in Frivole 76

Lips a deep chocolatey copper Rouge Allure in 108 Determinee

The Centrepoint of the Christmas Collection is
the Exclusive Ombres Matelassees de Chanel
in Charming £48

Five eyeshadows stamped the iconic quilted Chanel motif in a rectangular case.
There are beige, bronze and violet plum shadows in satiny and iridescent effect
finishes for perfect seductive and sensual sculpting.
Illusion D'Ombre in Fatal £24

Illusion D'Ombre in Initiation £24

Like a precious balm in its glass case, the iridescent CHANEL eyeshadow
can be used like a bold metallic eyeshadow or eyeliner
and comes in
INITIATION, a platinum bronze and
 FATAL, a silvery violet plum taupe

 Ligne Graphique De Chanel Bronze (below left) £26
 the Bronze eyeliner opts for a deep yet luminous khaki bronze shade.

Bronze Platine layers over a Chanel mascara,
 leaving a metallic illusion of points of light on the tips of the lashes.
