Our beauty routines definitely changed during lockdown, but now that life is returning to some kind of normalcy, it’s time to put your best face forward again. 

If you’re on the market for new beauty products, here are the latest launches that caught our attention.

Chanel’s Les Beiges makeup collection is formulated in a way that is said to enhance women’s natural beauty. For 2021, there's a new addition to the collection – the Les Beiges Water-fresh Blush. A blush with a light gel texture, the product gives you subtly rosy cheeks, great for days when you need just a little bit of colour. It’s also easy to apply  – simply pump to dispense a small amount onto the back of your hand, then apply it above the cheekbones, blending it until it melts onto the skin.

Suitable for all skin types, there are four shades available – Light Peach, Light Pink, Warm Pink and Intense Coral.

Now available on the Chanel Fragrance and Beauty E-shop and at Chanel Fragrance and Beauty boutiques. Available at counters from Sep 3
