My Fall Beauty Secret... Chanel

 Hello everyone! It was Thanksgiving this week in the United States which is one of my favorite times of the year spent with friends and family eating delicious food and remembering everything we’re thankful for.  Trevor came home this week from school which made Thanksgiving all that much better. We spent the week seeing movies, baking delicious treats, and eating until we were stuffed with Thanksgiving dinner. 
Whilst getting ready for all of the holiday festivities I realized that quite a few of my absolute favorite make-up products through the Fall are from Chanel! I’ve acquired these pieces over time as Chanel make up is fairly expensive, however these products would make lovely Christmas gifts for your wish list, and it is always a good idea to splurge on yourself every once in a while!
Firstly, I am absolutely obsessed with the Les 4 Ombres compact eye palette. My palette is the 202 Tisse Camelia, and I find is absolutely stunning.  It features 4 highlight pigmented rich and velvety soft eyeshadows. The colors include a lilac/brown shadow, an icy/blue highlighting shadow, a dusty pink shadow with a subtle gold shimmer, and a dark smoldering purple/brown crease shadow. What I love the most is that this palette is so diverse in the looks it can create ranging from a more natural day look to a dramatic smoky eye.  Along with it I love to wear the Chanel volumizing mascara. It is probably the best mascara I’ve ever boughten.  My lashes always look the longest and the fullest when I use it and it never clumps or flakes.

At the beginning of November I treated myself to a new lipstick at the Chanel counter and I chose the Rouge Allure intense long wear lip colour in the shade The Envoutante.  The formula for this lipstick is so amazing as it is incredibly smooth and highly pigmented. I love dark lips for the Fall and this has been my go to throughout the season.

Lastly, I’ve been looking for ages for the right lighter through out the Fall and Winter. I have a pretty fair complexion and I prefer to stay pale which means that sometimes gold toned highlighters don’t look right on me.  So I was so excited when I found the Camelia de Plumes silver toned highlighting powder .  I was attracted to it purely for the packaging as I think it is so beautiful but once I brushed it on I fell in love. It is so smooth and gives the most subtle shimmer to the tops of my cheekbones and any where else I wish to highlight.

These have been my absolute favorite beauty products through the entire Fall and I'm sure they will continue being my favorite through the Winter. They are definitely treats but would make great gifts for your wish lists this Christmas. Are there any beauty brands you have loved through the Fall? Leave a comment if you have! Happy Holidays!

  2. I'm so jealous - I love Chanel makeup but I could never really bring myself to purchase anything because of the steep price! :X I really want to try it though!


    1. I totally understand! The price is crazy, but if you are up for treating yourself these products are amazing! Especially the eye shadow palette! Cheers, Britt x
