With ‘Les Pinceaux de Chanel’ good make-up brushes are no longer reserved for professionals. Now, all of us can use them, even those of us with no makeup experience at all. Lucia Pica, Chanel’s Global Makeup and Color Designer, wanted to give all women access to her makeup techniques by creating a complete range of brushes for the complexion, eyes and lips. Four double-ended brushes particularly illustrate her signature and her approach to the application.
“I wanted to bring my editorial techniques into the everyday life of women”, Pica says. “I wanted to use brushes that do the job fast, yet are practical. They achieve results quickly and are easy to use.”
With a confident flick of the wrist, makeup application becomes easy and intuitive with these indispensable makeup tools, while offering a professional result. A selection of soft and silky bristles allows you to easily take the right amount of product for perfect application, anywhere, anytime.
Elegant and understated with their black lacquered ferrules and handles, Les Pinceaux de Chanel brushes are protected in a sleeve that covers the tuft of bristles. The set of 21 brushes is composed of 12 Complexion Brushes, 8 Eye Brushes and 1 Lip Brush.
Foundation Blending Brush
Use this brush to apply liquid or cream foundation for a lighter, “airbrushed” effect. How to?
Squeeze a drop of foundation onto the back of your hand. Then, take a small amount with the tip of the brush fibers or a small amount of cream foundation from the compact. Remove any excess before applying to the face. Starting from the center of the face, buff the product into the skin using small circular motions, building up the product in fine layers until you achieve the desired coverage.
