A New Look with Chanel Enigma Eyeshadow

I previously wrote about my love of the new Chanel Fall 2010 lipstick colors. The eyeshadows are also gorgeous and popular — many items sold out and are awaiting stock. I stopped by the Chanel makeup counter at Nordstrom in downtown Chicago to try the Enigma eyeshadow palette. 

Brittany — counter makeup artist — did a fabulous job creating a medium intensity eye look.  

Enigma shadow colors are shimmering light peach (looks pink to me), chocolate-gray, violet-gray and plum. When wet, the plum shade makes a great liner. The colors are multi-faceted and cool toned — I tend to wear warmer makeup colors, but was pleasantly surprised how much I liked this eyeshadow quad and the contrast it created.  

Pink on lid and a touch underneath brow; violet-gray on crease and outer corner, layered with chocolate-gray; plum (wet) as liner

Tip: Wet the tip of a small brush and swirl in one corner of the eyeshadow pan for a long-lasting liner.  

Brittany used Rose Dentelle lipstick on me (a rose-pink from the Fall collection), popped with Iris gloss (main line), which adds a hint of gold/peach/pink for dimension.

My apologies for the low photo quality, pics were snapped on my phone.
