With the release of the film 'Coco Before Chanel' the style world is going monochrome crazy so it's definitely a look to watch out for over the coming season. Audrey Tautou plays Coco Chanel & carries her iconic style with elegance as the film reaffirms the timeless classic beauty of Chanel..
Get the perfect Chanel chic make-up style in 3 simple steps -
1. Opt for smokey black/grey eyes, take a dark eyeshadow with a light shimmer (try Mac's Smoke & Diamonds-£11) & blend over the lid & into the socket line, apply a shimmer highlighter in white/pearl (try Mac's Phloof-£11) over the socket line to lighten it slightly & then up to your brow area to accentuate your brow bone. With an eye pencil line around the top & bottom lashes then with a cotton bud blend the dark shadow under the lashes to create a smokey effect, plenty of black eye liner is required for this look to keep it dramatic, also take it right into the inner corners of the eye to make them really stand out!
2. Choose a deep red wine lip colour (opt for Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipstick in Violet-£7.13), which was a Coco Chanel style trademark back in the day, this deep colour can easily bleed so apply some foundation to your lips first & apply two coats then blot & set light with a little translucent powder to keep it matt.
Black nails are the way to go, they have been in style for quite some time & with this look are definitely here to stay, keep them short though, long talons really don't work with this look! (try out Barry M nail polish in Black (£2.85)
Then just match up with a tailored black & white number & your set to go!!!
