Summer-Proof Your Makeup!


Much as we all luuuurve warm Summer days, they can come with a few of their own challenges! Like an increase in insect bites! And the need to protect yourself from the very warmth we all love so much – the sun. And, of course, our body’s own reactions to the warmth. The slight glow, or outright sweat some good old high temperatures cause! It can play havoc with your makeup. It can make your carefully applied face of beauty turn into a mascara-streaked gloop-fest. So not your favorite look, I know.


Because you are a well-groomed beauty, you’ll love products that glide on easily, and stay in place while you frolic in the Summer sun. With skin and hair protection, of course! When the temperature rises, you’ll stay looking coolly stunning with a few product tweaks!

For perfect eyeliner precision at ALL times, choose Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner. It is waterproof, smudge-proof, and delivers long-lasting definition with a twist of the wrist: Colour winds up when you need it, winds down when you don’t. Gentle, soft, silicone-enriched formula delivers smooth, even lining. A built-in sharpener at the opposite end detaches for quick refreshes. And it comes in LOADS of awesome shades.
