CHANEL launches the very first collection for eyes, which consists of several mono eyeshadows, eye liners, brow gels and also two new retractable brushes.
Lucia Pica is just a genius, I’m so excited since she’s CHANEL’s Global Creative Make Up and Colour Designer because everything she comes up with is just fun and easy to use.
Minimum effort and maximum results should be the key words when it comes to CHANEL Ombre Première Eyes Collection. Lucia Pica introduces the layering technique and with this in mind she creates two types of formulas for the eyeshadows; one formula is creamy and the other one is powdery.
The creamy one serves as a base, and the other one serves as a colour enhancer.
You can mix and match the colours and formulas or you can use them by themselves…there are no rules, just have fun and do what feels best for you.
‘Utilizing a system of stratification, the palette of mono eyeshadows for this year encourages the women to take a mix and match approach with the entire range; each color can stand-alone or can find a compliment in the others alongside it to intensify and amplify results.
Here, rich cream eyeshadows can be layered under sumptuous powders or glittering metallics for an emboldened effect; a stratification of colors, textures and tastes that both complements each other and the women.
At the same time each distinct ‘strata’ can hold its own, giving the customer the freedom to choose any way she would like to wear it, whether with other colors or as an elegant statement by itself.’(Source: press document).
