Chanel goes Coco with new summer collection

Chanel goes Coco with new summer collection

Coco Chanel set the trend for the tan back in the 1920s and made a million women desire sun-bronzed skin. Now Chanel's new complexion enhancers nod to this revolutionary time - without the sun damage.

Luminous skin radiating with health is a trick the A-list have perfected to a tee and Kay Montano, the Chanel Make-up artist who recently did Selma Blair's make-up for the Met Institute Costume Gala, agrees:

"Dewiness is the one single thing gives skin a youthful look and the fashion right now is for skin to look like skin. Make-up is brilliant because it can give us what we don't have so by sponging on the right products you can achieve this glow-y look."

So if you can't pop over to the French Riviera for a natural kiss from the sun, then you can dust, dab, polish and brush your way to a high-end glow right here at home with these summer newbies. Take the 4-lights Bronzing Powder for a daytime pick-me up - one swirl of the brush brings features back to life in an instant - and the Precious Loose Powder Sun-Kissed Effect is a pot of pizzaz for summer nights - simply dust onto cheek tops and décolletage. You'll be channelling the Hollywood glow in no time.

From £16, available nationwide.
