Chanel’s Riviera Summer

This year, for its beauty and make-up summer line, Chanel took inspiration from one of Gabrielle Chanel’s favorite destinations (and also one of mine’s): the French Riviera

One of the favorite destinations of Gabrielle Chanel, the Riviera of the Roaring Twenties is both a haven of peace and a new space for freedom. Facing the Mediterranean, the look is lost to the shores of Italy, and time stretches in the clear air. Under the blue sky of the French Riviera, skin is tanned, pace is relaxed. Between escapades in the sun and sea bathing, the happy days instills a new way of life, far from Paris and the Cambon Road, closer to nature.


Chanel Makeup Creation Studio extends the memory of hers stay with a vibrant collection, diving in the blue and sipping the light.

For the face, Chanel proposes the Exclusive Creation Lumiere D’Ete which reflects a pure and bronzed complexion. The illuminating powder provides hints of golden shimmer with a satin finish to ensure a natural look.

For the eyes, the French brand unveiled two products: The Stylo Eyeshadow– which is compact and packaged as a pen. The product is applied in one single sweep and is available in violet, turquoise blue, golden powder pink, satin olive green, and luminous warm brown. On the other hand, the Stylo Yeux Waterproof Orchidée is an intense violet liner which provides precision in application and long-lasting radiant color. Elegance and carefreeness are the essence of beauty according to Chanel. They inspired the season’s favorite accessory: for an expression Made in Riviera.
