The Reflets d’Été de Chanel summer 2014 collection is inspired by idyllic sunny days and a utopian vision of an endless summer. The luxury label focuses on both pretty pastels and bold bright tones for the new line, offering many high quality options for stunning looks in the season to come, particularly when it comes to eyes. As far as lips are concerned, subdued, delicate shades are preferred over bold dramatic options. Here's a closer look at the products included in the new Chanel summer 2014 makeup summer 2014 collection:
Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen ($57.50)
Creating a natural looking glow isn't the only benefit the N°40 powder offers. The product is suitable for even sensitive complexions and helps protect the skin against premature aging.
Chanel Le Blush Creme de Chanel ($38)
The 79 Cheeky (rose shade with bronze tint) limited edition blush has a silky, light-weight texture and comes in a satin finish.
