CHANEL BAUME ESSENTIEL Odalisque Magazine Opiate

By Elva Ahlbin

These moisturising highlighting balms are a staple in my professional makeup kit. 
I find myself reaching for them almost every time I do makeup on a client or talent and especially if I want a fresh, elevated and dewy finish. It catches the ligh and sculpt your face in the most beautiful and sophisticated way.

The sheer formula suits every skin tone and I normally use them as the last step in a makeup application. I dab it on with my fingertips on the cheekbones up to the temples, the bridge of the nose, a tiny bit on the chin and also on the cupid's bow or all over the lips. It also looks really nice on the eyelids for that editorial glossy wetlook.

They come in 6 different shades. Golden Light, Transparent, Sculpting, Rosée (new), Printainer (exclusive) and Perlecent (exclusive).
