The French luxury label has unveiled its first Cruise 2017 makeup collection, created by Lucia Pica, Chanel's global creative makeup and color designer. The new collection, called "Les Indispensables de l'Eté," redefines the notion of glamour, channeling a liberated and natural vision of it, as envisaged by Gabrielle Chanel several decades earlier.


Inspired by summer landscapes and their inherent luminosity, as well as summer sunsets, the collection draws inspiration first and foremost from nature.

"The concept is that there is no concept! It is about sensuality, feeling and the spirit of things," explains Lucia Pica. "It's about being yourself, rising above judgments or perceptions of what you should be."

Radiant, sun-kissed skin

These natural vibes are captured in Chanel's "Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Color," which, as the name suggests, gives skin a lightly bronzed glow. This facial powder has a lightweight texture with gold particles bringing luminosity and glow. It's available in five shades (Light, Medium Light, Medium, Medium Deep, Deep), ranging from a pink/beige to bronze.

The collection's nature-inspired lip colors reflect a spectrum of sunny shades. The iconic "Rouge Coco Shine" comes in new shades, with the peachy "Golden Sun" and the nude "Golden Sand," while "Rouge Coco Stylo" comes in the soft beige of "Panorama" and the coral pink "Esquisse".

Four shades of "Vernis Longue Tenue" nail polish complete this Chanel Cruise 2017 collection. "Sargasso" is a shimmering gray and "Coquillage," "Coralium" and "Sea Whip" are softer, pinky shades.
