TIPS FROM LUCIA PICA, Creative Makeup and Color Designer
. For powder: take a small amount of powder with the brush, then tap off excess on the back of your hand. Apply from the center of the face outwards in small circular motions. Build up until you achieve the desired effect.
. For bronzing powder: blend the powder onto the most prominent areas of the face that naturally catch the light: the forehead, bridge of the nose and top of the cheekbones, for a subtle, sun-kissed glow.
. For blush: take a small amount of powder with the tip of the brush, then then tap off excess on the back of your hand. Sweep the colour over cheekbones with light downward and outward movements on the cheeks.
LES PINCEAUX DE CHANEL are brushes made from a blend of natural and synthetic bristles. Designed to be wear-resistant, they must be cleaned regularly with warm water and shampoo or mild soap. Leave to dry flat in the open air, away from sources of heat.
