I am rounding up my review of the Chanel Les Automnales Collection for Fall 2015, everything is killer in this collection, but the one that I am loving for some moody fall drama, is the Chanel Les 4 Ombres Tisse d’Automne!
Chanel Tisse d’Automne is the latest eyeshadow quad to join Chanel’s Les 4 Ombres family, and it is a smokey palette of rich Fall colors. This was one that I thought I’d pass on (in favour for the pretty engravings of the Entrelacs palette), but as it turned out, I fell in love with Tisse d’Automne immediately upon swatching.
Tisse d’Automne is a warm-toned palette comprising of greens and browns. An unlikely color-theme for me, but somehow Chanel wove some magic in there to create a gorgeous palette.
The shades, swatched left to right in clockwise direction starting from the top left, are:
And this is how it all looks on me:
For this eye look, I first applied a sheer layer of the shimmery pink all over my lid as a base, thereafter, I applied the bronze on two-thirds of my lid. On the outer third, I applied the olive green, then darker the outer-v using the dark sooty khaki. And as a finishing touch, I patted more of the shimmery pink over the center of my lid.
Tip: As I have relatively small eyes, a little trick that I’ve been favouring lately is to elongate and emphasize by extending the outer tip of my upper lash line, and then lining most of my lower lash line. I don’t go all the way into my tear duct as that actually makes my eyes look smaller, beadier. Instead, I fill in the gap with a bright shimmery highlight shade to make it pop!
You’ve already had a glimpse of the final look here, but here’s another for your zooming pleasure!
And this completes my coverage on Chanel’s Fall 2015 Les Automnales Collection! I love pretty much everything in the range, and particularly I think Tisse d’Automne is a wonderful palette for some dramatic fall colors. I also loved the Entrelacs Palette which is a very different take on fall… softer, more everyday friendly. The Joues Contraste Alezane blush which I’m wearing here is mad love, such a beauty that one should not miss out on.
