Loving the latest creation from Chantecaille, whose butterfly embossed eye shades last year were on every beauty page for their sheer prettiness. These fabulously intricate eye and face colours are spot on for spring lights n brights and for each sale, 10% goes to marine charities. They haven’t hit the UK yet, but when they do, I’ll be first in the queue.

Its always been a mystery to me how you apply this eyeshadow> Yes it looks like a work of art , but do you need three different brushes to apply the three different colours? Won’t it all end up a nasty shade of brown – like a paint pallette. It seems to me you need a degree in art to understand what to do with this!
You don’t need different applicators if you use a brush – you can literally dust the excess powder off (I do it on the back of my hand!) on a cloth or tissue. With this colourway, pick out the coral shade to blend from the lid to the eyebrow, then (wipe your brush!) use the green background colour to brush across your lids blending well into the socket line. Use the vibrant blue fish colour to line under the eye or very close to the lash line….don’t worry if it’s not precision…as long as you blend, blend, blend, these shades will look stunning. Alternatively, it’s fine to swirl your brush over all the colours; the pigments are rich and the powder very fine so it will turn out an irridescenty green for lids. With the highlighter/bronzer palette (not pictured) in coral shades, none of this is necessary – a big fat blusher brush whipped over the make up and swept across the ckeeks will be gorgeous! If you are like me though, you wouldn’t commit the ultimate make-up junkie sacrilege by actually USING it!!
