Let us dream a little of careless summer days with this new make-up collection by French Maison Chanel. It’s the promise of an airy and dazzling warm season. The delicious caress of sunlight on skin beaded with seawater. A feeling of freedom, instilled by a sailboat gliding along the coast against the Mediterranean. Inspired by the relaxed lifestyle of the French Riviera, Les Beiges sets sail this season with an exclusive collection: Summer of Glow.
A subtle iridescence, a sun-kissed radiance, a naturally tanned effect. The Les Beiges Summer of Glow collection of lightweight, longwearing makeup illuminates skin any way you wish. For a never-ending summer, bathed in light.
Les Beiges Summer of Glow shakes up summer with a powerful breeze of freedom. Luminous, it is an infusion of beloved summer light. Delectable warmth on the skin. Lightweight, inspired by the aura and free spirit of Mademoiselle Chanel, this new collection has only one goal in mind: a sun kissed healthy glow that seems revived by the great outdoors.
Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Illuminating Powder
Les beiges began with foundation. This season, Les Beiges Healthy Glow Illuminating Powder comes in two shades. Playing with shadows and light, the powder subtly intensifies the features and enhances natural beauty. Lightweight and airy, it gives the complexion a discreet glimmer, accentuated by luminous pigments with golden shimmers. To preserve this instant healthy glow, the formula is completed with hydrating and antioxidant kalanchoe extract.
Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Illuminating Powder is easy to take from its generous jar, it glides on with a Kabuki brush, wherever the sun naturally touches the skin: the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin. Workable and easy to apply, the cream can be used to structure the facial contours (smoothed under cheekbones with circular movements) or for an allover look (dabbed on and blended in, from the middle of the face outwards).

Instantly, its formula embellishes the complexion with a subtle luminous veil for an immediate healthy glow highlighting effect. Skin radiates with vibrant freshness and sunny luminosity.
Summer of Radiance. A liquid highlighter that instantly illuminates skin with a fresh finish.
What could be more delicious than the sensation of bare skin? Like the entire Les Beiges line, this fluid feels imperceptible. Featherweight, it instantly blends into the skin to reveal its natural radiance. For an instant retouching effect, this embellishing filter enriched with pearly particles enhances skin texture on application. Radiant skin is also, and above all, pampered skin. This is why this embellishing highlighter contains 69% water and a marine-origin emollient. The complexion seems lit up from within. In parallel, kalanchoe extract protects skin’s natural beauty.
Ultra-sensorial, it is applied with fingertips, dabbed on to structure the face (the top of the cheekbones, on the cheeks, the bridge of the nose and the Cupid’s bow), or as a makeup base for a natural glow. It can also be used on the décolleté and body to intensify the skin’s radiance.

After an exclusive pre-drop of four dresses, H&M is delighted to announce the launch, in March 2020, of the complete collection born from its collaboration with Colombian designer Johanna Ortiz. With its palette of exotic colors, floral prints and spectacular silhouettes that have become synonymous with the clothing brand Johanna Ortiz, the collection presents 19 attractive and feminine pieces such as dresses, tops, skirts and swimwear.
The imprint of Colombia – the rhythm of salsa, the beauty and elegance of orchids and the majesty of palm trees on the sublime pink of a sunset – is felt in each drawing. I am delighted to give this H&M collection a simple glamour and to bring a little Latin American party into the wardrobe of the H&M client. I hope that the clients will wear these pieces barefoot and with a beautiful flower in their hair.
Key pieces include the bright red floral maxi dress, the magenta midi dress in English embroidery, the black patterned column dress in viscose crepe – one of Johanna’s favorites – and the poplin ruffle wrap skirt in black and white cotton. Extravagant frills are an important feature of the design, appearing even on asymmetrical swimwear. There are also more minimalist styles, such as the cotton poplin tunic and monochrome blouses for a fascinating look of great simplicity.
The H&M x Johanna Ortiz Collection will be launched in selected H&M stores as well as online on March 12. Come into the beautiful world of H&M.
If the eye is a camera with its shutter open – always recording, turning experience into image – it is Lucia Pica’s unerring instinct to train her lens on visions less familiar. Seeking inspiration for her Spring Summer 2020 collection, the Chanel Global Creative Makeup and Color Designer took a photographic trip to the center of the ancient desert, an expedition that uncovered a completely new perspective on color.
I was looking for something poetic, like a memory – a natural filter that makes everything look dreamier.
The collection boasts a total of 15 products but if you must choose one thing to stock up on, it would be the Baume Essentiel in a limited-edition Golden Light shade. The unreleased colour was first seen backstage at the runway show back in September 2019 and was used to give the models’ complexion an effortless warm and illuminated sun-kissed glow. Besides applying the multi-use glow stick on the highs of the cheeks, forehead, bridge of the nose and chin, it can also be used on the eyelids and lips to cast a soft glow for a fresh finish.
If the eye is a camera with its shutter open – always recording, turning experience into image – it is Lucia Pica’s unerring instinct to train her lens on visions less familiar. Seeking inspiration for her S/S 2020 collection, the Chanel Global Creative Makeup and Color Designer took a photographic trip to the center of the ancient desert, an expedition that uncovered a completely new perspective on color.
Initially drawn to the desert for its famous orange dunes, sacred cave paintings and lunar plains, Lucia Pica was soon captivated by the uncanny silence of the vast nothingness she found there, its powerful stillness moving her to reappraise the landscape through fresh eyes.
Shifting her gaze toward the quieter hues of the quartzes, basalts and shales scattered across the desert floor, and forests bleached by the relentless sun, Lucia Pica unearthed a muted palette that is surprising new territory for her. Desert Dream is characterized by peachy rose tones, cool browns and the romantic undercurrents of mauve, whose shimmering, at times metallic textures echo the desert’s hidden treasures.
It was beautiful in the desert but quite unexpected. In the desert, there is almost a universe of one single, dominant color – mauve – which really came to life with the particular photographic process we used.
Like distant memories, the dreamy Polaroid pictures at the heart of Desert Dream lend their sensual soft focus and painterly abstractions to a makeup collection that is perhaps Lucia Pica’s most poetic take on femininity yet. Using the prints’ soft colors to bring subtle emotion to the face – mysterious, mauve intensity to the eyes, planes of warm light on the high cheeks and red-hot desert heat on the lips – Lucia Pica evokes a womanly state of inner calm, self-possession and utter contentment.
