Chanel has launched the Byzance makeup collection, a limited edition lineup of opulent makeup products inspired by the Byzantine glamour. The muse is Empress Theodora in the Byzantine Era, where the Empire remained as one of the most powerful economic, cultural, and military forces in Europe, despite setbacks and territorial losses. The collection, called Byzance, is composed by eye shadows, blushes and a ruby red lipstick. The palette combines gold and bronze shades, perfect for the everyday use with brown and black tones appropriate for a special occasion. In addition, sculpted cheeks and rosy lips finish the goddess look.
Topkapi Quadra Eyeshadow: Beloved by Mademoiselle Chanel, the opulence of Byzantine art served as muse for this quartet of creamy powder eyeshadows. Copper, taupe, gold and bronze, touched with shimmer and light, create mesmerizing effects.
The Lumières Byzantines collection also features glittering jewel toned blushers Rouge and Or.
The eternally classic Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick has been given a little twist as well, resulting in the lustrous shade of Rouge Byzantin.
The collection is available at Chanel.com.
