Stardust from Chanel
Marlene Dietrich, Joan Crawford and Carole Lombard are just three of the bombshells who knew the power of powder; how you could use it to sculpt the face, playing with light and shadow to maximum effect. Which is why we’re sure that they would have loved to get their hands on the latest must-have beauty buy from Chanel: Empreinte de Chanel Radiant Glow Highlighting Powder (£42, www.chanel.co.uk)
A shimmering, glimmering pressed powder, Empreinte de Chanel (it means Chanel’s Imprint) can be swept above cheekbones or the eyelids to accentuate bone structure, or can be used to give skin a radiant glow. And, of course, that iconic double-C logo – paws off, Cyd Charisse and Claudia Cardinale – makes it all the more covetable.
So, any aspiring Marlenes out there, get yourself along to your nearest Chanel counter in time for Empreinte’s launch, on January 29.
