For the 2018 Eyes Collection, Lucia Pica — Chanel’s Global Creative Makeup and Color Designer — drew inspiration from the magic of the night, an infinitely intriguing symbol of freedom. The colours of the collection play with contrasting textures and intensities, as well as the magnetism emanating from these variations.
Actress Kristen Stewart, as the face of the new eyes collection, showed how to have that mesmerizing look. Recreate the look with these simple steps using the new collection:
1. Work the Base
To have a clean liner look on the eyes, you have to even out your skin colours. After wearing your foundation, you can use it to on your eyelids too or use an eye make-up base. In this case, use the Longwear Eyeshadow Primer on both of them.
2. Draw the Lines
Draw the lines from your inner eyes, following the crease or right along the middle part of your lid to the outer eyes. Stop drawing at the outer eyes, more precisely, below the end of your eyebrows. Then, start to draw a linear line following your upper waterlines, to the end of your outer eyes. Make cat-eye lines and draw it to the upper-middle of your outer corner eyes until it touches the first line.
Now do the bottom waterlines, and smudge the outer corner eyes with an eyebrow brush to have a dimensional cat-eyes, smokey effect.
4. Bold it up!
Make a fake lash extension effect using the Mascara Extreme Wear. Use it in a zig-zag move from the roots to the end-tip of the lashes to have more natural curly look.
Additional glow factor and smoothener:
If you feel a bit plain on the eyes, just add gold or soft gold shimmering eyeshadow for both of your inner corner eyes. And, use a neutral one to dab it on the outer corner under the eyeshadow lines to make it a cleaner and stand-out look. Use the eyeshadow cream for this one.
