NOIR ET BLANC DE CHANEL: Chanel Beauty FW'19

 
I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.
— Gabrielle Chanel
 

This season, Lucia Pica took an unexpected approach and introduced only black and white inspired by the reflection of life.

Drawing elements from Gabrielle Chanel's life and Paris itself, Lucia Pica was intrigued by monochrome and the in-between shades that were formed and depicted in life. With the absence of colours, the collection explores the shades of the absolutes: greys, browns and deep burgundies while playing with textures that are suitable for everyday wear.

For the look of the season, I use the Les 4 Ombres in 332 - Noir Suprême and layer the Ombre Première Top Coat in 327- Penombre over my eyelids. If you dare to challenge the bold monochrome chicness of the 60s, line your eyes with the Stylo Yeux Waterproof eyeliner in 949 - Blanc Graphique for an iconic cat-eye. Finish the look with the Rouge Allure Velvet Extrême Intense Matte Lip Colour in 128- Rose Nocturne or the Rouge Allure Ink in 198 - Cornaline for a metallic effect.
