Chanel's latest eyeshadow palette, Les 9 Ombres Affresco, looks like an ocean-inspired medley of shades that might be more fitting for cruise-life than everyday wear. Some of that might hold some truth since the shades were inspired by Lucia Pica, the brands Global Creative Makeup Artist, and Colour Designer, and her hometown of Naples, Italy.

Lucky for us, it's totally everyday friendly and versatile. In this post, I'll be showing you how to create two totally different looks, but first, let's jump into some quick product info.

The palette is just one out of eleven stunning pieces, in a twenty-four shade limited-edition collection, for Chanel's Neapolis New City Spring/Summer 2018. The makeup colours comprise of beautiful blue-greens, sunset golden yellows, seashell pale pinks, and rich vibrant orange reds. 



The shimmery golden shade and muted browns work together beautifully for a classic nude eye. If you're feeling more adventurous opt for a pop of turquoise-blue that feels sophisticated and perfect for a night out.
 

For more intense colour when using the blues and greens in the palette, apply Chanel's Ombre Premiere Crème Eyeshadow in the shade Verderame, an ashy green shade, to your eyes as a base first to really make the colour pop.


What I like best about this palette is how truly versatile it is. All of the shades work beautifully together. They're highly pigmented and long-lasting and go on silky smooth.

LOOK ONE

Easy Everyday Smoked Out Eyeliner

The idea behind this everyday smoked out eyeliner was inspired by all of the French women who's style I've always admired. This look is so ridiculously simple and with time, you can totally master it in a few minutes. It's my go-to look pretty much everyday. Sometimes I'll rock a red lip, and sometimes I reach for a matte nude. The point is always to keep the focus on the eyes. It makes me feel more confident and hey, a girl always wants to feel good.

YOU'LL NEED:

  • CHANEL Les 9 Ombres Affresco Eyeshadow Palette
  • A fluffy crease brush (I used one by Marc Jacobs)
  • M.A.C's Pro Longwear Fluidline, black gel liner
  • An eyeliner brush (I used a lip brush from Sephora)
  • CHANEL Le Volume Mascara

1. Mix the golden shade and the matte brown shade from the palette using your crease brush. Apply it to your eyelids and blend to the crease. Build up the intensity of the eyeshadow slowly to prevent fallout. This also helps you control how pigmented you want your shadow to be. Do the same for the lower lash line.

2. Line your upper waterline with black using the eyeliner brush. Then line your upper lash line, keeping it as close to the lashes as you can. (A thick line will close up your eye and make it appear smaller.) Use the leftover pigment from your brush and lightly line your lower lash line. Make sure to connect the outer corners of the lower and upper lines you just created.

3. Now you're going to smoke out the gel liner, starting at the upper lash line. Using the same eyeliner brush, dip it into the charcoal shade and mix it with the shimmery burgundy of the Les 9 Ombres palette. Run the brush along the upper lash line like you did before, building up the intensity of the line as you go along. Without loading your brush with more shadow, repeat the step for the lower lash line. If you want a darker eye, go ahead and load up that brush with more shadow. I like to keep mine pretty light.

4. The final step, I used one coat of Chanel's Le Volume in black. I skipped out on curling my lashes because I this mascara does a great job at curling, but also, I have no clue where my eyelash curler went. 

 

LOOK TWO

Date Night Smudlering Green Cat Eye

I had an evening out in mind when I created this look. I started with a nude shadow and then applied the ashy-green creme eyeshadow from CHANEL'S SS18 collection to emphasize the colour, but also to give my shadow longevity but layering a powdered shadow from the Les 9 Ombres palette on top. (Full steps are listed below.)

Whether it's date night, or a night out with the girls, this look will definitely get you noticed. I went totally bold for the finished look and ended up pairing it with a red liquid lip colour from, also from CHANEL'S SS18 collection, called 164 Entusiasta. If you haven't tried it yet, it's a creamy heavenly lipstick that's both hydrating and beautifully pigmented.

YOU'LL NEED:

  • CHANEL Les 9 Ombres Affresco Eyeshadow Palette (limited edition)
  • CHANEL Ombre Premiere Crème Eyeshadow in Verderame, ashy-green (limited edition)
  • CHANEL Stylo Yeux Waterproof in Mare Chiaro, soft green (limited edition)
  • A fluffy crease brush (I used one by Marc Jacobs)
  • An eyeliner brush (I used a lip brush from Sephora)
  • CHANEL Le Volume Mascara

1. Mix the pale pink shade and the matte brown shade from the palette using your crease brush. Apply it to your eyelids and lower lash line and blend. 

2. Now take the ashy-green Ombre Premiere Crème Eyeshadow in Verderame, and create a winged line using the brush that shadow comes with. Line your lower lashline and connect the two, at the outer corner of the eye.

3. Using the Stylo Yeux Waterproof in the shade Mare Chiaro, a soft mossy green, line your upper waterline, followed by the lower waterline. 

4. Using the eyeliner brush, dip it into the green shade from the Les 9 Ombres palette. Run the brush over top of the cream shadow winged line that you created in step two. Doing this will intensify the colour further, and the powder will lock that cream shadow into place. Do the same for the lower lashline, making sure to blend as you go along. 

5. Take some of the lighter grey shade in the palette, and using the same eyeliner brush, run it along the outer edge of the winged line to create some depth at the end. 

6. Coat those lashes with some volumizing black mascara!
