|...and one without the glasses where you can see that I forgot to fill in my brows (or to comb them)|
This one is from some time last week, a "running errands on a rainy day" kind of makeup. I picked Chanel as a theme for an understated look. It wasn't planned since I was simply trying to get ready and out of the door in time for my nail appointment, but decided to embrace it. It was the first time in weeks I reached for the Chanel foundation. Vitalumier used to be my holy grail and most-used product, but they've discontinued so many colors, tinkered with existing ones, and the last bottle I bought isn't as good a match as it should have been. Maybe I should try Cendre 30, but I think I'm happier with my usual go-to, Guerlain Lingerie de Peau.
Chanel Vitalumiere (the regular one) in Beige 40 mixed with their Le Blanc primer to lighten the color and make it slightly less yellow. I've repurchased Le Blanc a couple of times over the years, and have a feeling they reformulated it since I first reviewed this base all those years ago.
Cle de Peau concealer
NARS Light Reflecting Powder (loose)
NARS eye primer
Chanel Mystere Quad (discontinued)- only the two lightest shade, mostly mixed together, with a touch of the lightest one under the lower lashes, to counter any darkness from the glasses.
Chanel Santal (#100) Stylo Yeux Waterproof Eyeliner
Le Volume de Chanel mascara in 01 Noir (from a sample, still working through a pile of them)
Chanel blush in Rose Ecrin.
A light touch of Chanel Rouge Coco in Mademoiselle topped by some random nearly sheer Chantecaille gloss sample.
Nothing. I forgot.
J Crew white t-shirt, DVF long cardigan from who knows how many seasons ago, very vintage Jean Patou scarf. Scent of that day was vintage Opium (edt). Obviously, low-key makeup doesn't mean low-key fragrance.
