When I first saw these two photos from backstage at the Chanel Resort 2014 show, I got so excited. A diy on the horizon, I thought to myself. No but really, this makeup is so cool, and totally wearable! It’s perfect for a night out if you thin out the lines on the top and bottom, or leave them thick if you’re feeling bold.

Regardless of how it looked on me, I had to try it. So here’s my little tutorial of sorts, tweet us a picture @bloghv if you try it!!

The first thing I did was moisturize my skin using the Aveeno Smart Essentials Daily nourishing moisturizer with SPF 30, although whatever moisturizer you use will obviously work. I then applied a slightly light colored foundation using a foundation brush that I cannot remember the source of. I used the Neutrogena Healthy Skin liquid makeup in shade 30 Buff. I’m just telling you guys the specifics about what I used though most of these products can be substituted with whatever you have lying around.



Once that’s done you can set it with whatever powder you have lying around, I use the Rimmel Stay Matte Transparent powder. I also applied a little bronzer under my cheekbones for the heck of it, using NYC’s Smooth Skin bronzer in Sunny. I used the ELF powder brush for both of those.



Now onto the fun part, the eyes! This look is basically a super intense matte black cat eye with an icy blue liner on the bottom lashline. It’s so freaking cool and I love it. To start out, I used the color Velocity (the bright blue) from the Sugarpill Heartbreaker palette on a small angled brush. I just applied that pretty thick all the way across my bottom lashline, and then out into a dramatic cat eye. I then went back in with black eyeliner from NYC and outlined the basic shape I wanted.



From here, I used an angled eyeshadow brush to fill in the lines that I drew. I used the color “creep” from the Urban Decay naked palette, which is subtly shimmery, because for some reason I don’t own matte black eyeshadow.  I also went over the blue with a lighter one from this Profusion palette. I don’t know what the name is but it’s the light blue on the far right.

There you have it! My take on this super amazing Chanel makeup. Sigh, if only I could do it with Chanel products.
