Beach chic from Chanel

If the scene you’re heading to this summer is more manicured than wild, these products from the Chanel SS16 collection – In the Summer Light – can help you achieve beach chic with ease. Firstly, tie a silk scarf round your head to tame unruly hair before painting your nails with this timeless coral polish. Rumour has it lip gloss is back in; these peachy glosses are brilliant for adding a touch of glamour.

Highlight cheekbones, cupid’s bow and just under your eyebrows with one half of your power and use the other rosy part on your upper forehead, nose and cheek apples for a touched (not burnt) by the sun glow. Brown mascara is a grey area for a lot of women because it tends to feel half-done; it has to be either dramatic black or nothing. Yet this brown is brilliant for blondes with naturally light lashes bleached in the sun. It creates a softer finish but still opens up the eye, especially when paired with the bronzy liner: best for green/hazel eyes.

Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour Duo, £43

Chanel Levres Scintillantes lip gloss, £22

Le Volume de Chanel waterproof mascara, £25

Le Crayon Khol, £17

Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour, £18
