Holiday 2011: Chanel Style!

With the Holidays quickly approaching, it's time to start thinking about your look, and Chanel has one out now that is so easy to achieve, yet looks so fresh and modern!

Holiday's Featured Look

This is the Chanel Holiday 2011 look, and my favorite feature is the metallic gold eyeliner for sure!!

Some of the great products featured on this look are limited edition (which makes them that much more fun!)

I want to specifically note the highlighting powder, which is incredible!

The intricate scroll design is captivating, but the hint of light-catching pigments in this oil-free powder is what makes it incredible.  Use on check bones, and brow bones to capture the light just right!

The featured nail polish, "Rouge Carat"

Is a great berry shade that is totally holiday appropriate!

There are also matching lipstick, long wearing stains and glosses in the berry color

As for the gold eyeliner, I will do a SPLURGE vs STEAL on this one:

Chanel's "OR" metallic gold eyeliner
LIQUID EYE LINES<BR>$32 at Chanel counters (limited supply per store, you can also purchase it on

or the STEAL:

Make Up For Ever's Aqua Liner in "Diamond Gold" $23 at Sephora
1 Diamond Gold

I HAVE to go with the STEAL on this one.  Both liners are incredibly easy to apply and are very long wearing and smudge proof, but the price alone on the Make Up For Ever's liner is what can allow you bust the bank and grab another shade of the Chanel's Holiday Collection!

To create a great Holiday Look (whether using Chanel or not) focus on 2 things:

1:  Using the gold liner to create drama
2: Using a berry shade for lips and [finger]tips (remembering to balance out the bold lips with a deeper blush)

Here, Chanel makeup artists explain how to get the perfect Holiday look:

Famous Look

Combine with gold jewelry, black pants and a silky berry-shade shirt - and you have an incredible fall look!
