What are Chanel eyeshadows like?
Trait de Caractere eyeshadows from Chanel have been ophthalmologically tested. They are safe for people wearing contact lenses and with sensitive eyes. The products are highly pigmented and in consequence, the make-up is vivid and long-lasting. Natural ingredients are responsible for the eyelid skin care.
How to use eyeshadows from Chanel?
Firstly, prep your skin and eyes for the makeup. Apply a moisturising cream and after it is fully absorbed, go in with a foundation and concealer if needed. Finish it with a setting powder. To prolong the eyeshadow wear, you can use a special primer. Trait de Caractere from Chanel is perfect for creating the most eye-catching look – the smoky eye. Start with a base shadow of a neutral colour – preferably with a matte finish. This will be the transition shade and will help to blend evenly the rest of the colours. Next, apply the lightest shade to the inner corners -this will visually open up the eye and brighten up the entire look. On the opposite side – the outer corners – apply a dark eyeshadow to create the impression of depth and to obtain a multidimensional effect. Blend out all the colours, make sure not to leave any sharp edges. Add a black eyeliner and apply a generous amount of mascara for a more intense look. Makeup with Trait de Caractere eyeshadow palette is all done!
