    Best Beauty Buys...Chanel

    Today we're going back in time to Chanel's Spring 2007 RTW show. We've always been a big fan of Chanel's runway looks, but so far, this is our all-time favourite. We love the eccentricity but still polished makeup look, and decided to give you, our readers, a chance to try it out for yourself!
    To recreate this look quickly with inexpensive beauty products, use:

    All available at Sephora

    Face: Sephora Brand Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 - $18, Sephora Brand Cheek Stain (in Pink) - $4

    Eyes: Smashbox 24K - $16, Sephora Brand Strass (No.02) - $10, Stila Major Lash Mascara (in Black) - $9

    Eyebrows: Sephora Brand Lash & Eyebrow Mascara (in Clear) - $8

    Lips: Stila Clear Color (in Pink) - $17

    Nails: Sephora Brand Nail Polish (No.48) - $4

    Application: Lightly apply tinted moisturizer to entire face. Lightly brush cheek stain into hollow of cheeks, especially near the ends nearest to the ears. Brush a fairly thick line of gold eye shadow along the bottom lash line, then brush an equally think line of silver eye shadow along the top lash line/lid. Brush on a single coat of mascara (don't be heavy-handed when it comes to the mascara - this look is all about the shadow). Brush on a light coat of eyebrow mascara, to set the brow. Swipe on one coat of lip color (don't be heavy-handed with this either). Lastly, paint nails with the silver nail polish, for the complete Chanel look. Hint: while this look is great for nighttime, for a day look, we suggest using just the gold eye shadow or just the silver eye shadow, and only on the lids (and for the last time, don't be heavy-handed!)
