Road-Tripping With the Chanel Travel Diary Fall/Winter 2017 Collection

Even though I’ve been to California three times (one of which was a year-long stay) and taken numerous road trips while out there, I have to admit that I’ve never driven along the breathtakingly beautiful Big Sur coastline.

It’s something I definitely need to remedy sooner or later.

I can vividly see myself driving down the coast listening to Nightshift while the sun is dropping towards the horizon.

I can imagine the water glisten while the sky turns orange, and red, and finally a deep shade of blue…

The Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Intense Long-Wear Lip Colours in 64 First Light and 63 Nightfall from the Chanel Travel Diary Collection. These gorgeous lipsticks have a satin-matte finish and a weightless formula that you practically can’t feel on the lips

The Chanel Ombre Première Longwear Cream Eyeshadow in 818 Urban from the Chanel Travel Diary Collection. I either use it smudged along my top and bottom lashlines or as a base for the teal and blue shadows in the eye palette

Then, the next morning, I would stop to take in all the blues and greens and browns of where the ocean meets the land…

The Chanel Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow in 288 Road Movie from the Chanel Travel Diary Collection. I love the color combo in this palette and the shadows are creamy to the touch and nicely pigmented

I would also love to witness the unexpected changes in nature’s color palette if a group of clouds decided to come into play.

The Chanel Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour in 576 Horizon Line from the Chanel Travel Diary Collection. I feel like by now you should know how much I like this formula! 😉

And, finally, I’d keep driving till I reach the desert to admire its unique, stark beauty.

The Chanel Palette Essentielle in 150 Beige Clair from the Chanel Travel Diary Collection. This very visually pleasing face palette features a concealer, a cream blush and a cream highlighter. I like to use the concealer to cover imperfections, but I find it too drying to use in my (dry) under-eye area. The blush and highlighter are pretty subtle – which I love – and ideal for a natural dewy look

I love the Chanel Travel Diary Fall/Winter 2017 Collection.

Makeup that makes me dream is makeup at its best.

    You might be surprised, but I am actually tempted by the quad. I know, I know, such a shock for a palette despiser like me, but the colors are oh so beautiful!

    I’ve lived in California for basically my whole life, and I’ve never been to Big Sur! The closest I have been was Monterey. I know it is stunning and I wanna drive by it too. Everything in this collection looks so gorgeous, I cannot pick a favorite!
