Double-duty shadows

These single eyeshadows pack a big colour punch in a small package. Apply them dry for a diffused and glowy wash of colour, or use a damp brush for bold and saturated shine.

Special scents

These three fragrances are the latest additions to a collection of perfumes all inspired by the life and loves of Coco herself. Treat yourself to one of the luxuries of life with notes of jasmine (1932), lavender (Jersey) and exotic florals (Beige). And as Coco famously said, wear it “wherever you want to be kissed.”

Les exclusifs de Chanel les extraits parfum, $200 each. Chanel.

These blush sticks add rosy colour and a hint of moisture to cheekbones — no mirror required! Lightly apply the colour (layer it for a more intense hue) and blend using your fingertips.

Clinique chubby stick cheek colour balm blushes, $24 each. Clinique.
