Chantecaille: My Summer Glow Essentials

Chantecaille: My Summer Glow Essentials

Endless sunshine and warmer weather have me in the mood for lots of outdoor fun. This means that I spend less time getting ready in the mornings as I just can’t wait to head out the door. But, of course, there are some things that I can’t go without. For example, using Chantecaille make-up products that give me this wonderful summer glow. I’ve been using my trusted Chantecaille Ultra Sun Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 45 Primer for years (I wrote about it here) but have only recently discovered Chantecaille make-up. While visiting the Chantecaille counter in London in May to stock up on the primer, I could not resist bringing a few new goodies home with me. Here’s what I got:

Ultra Sun Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 45 Primer

Ultra Sun Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 45 Primer

Chantecaille Ultra Sun Protection I am obsessed with wearing sunscreen on my face every single day, even in winter. This product is infused with soothing botanicals to fight aging skin and primes the skin for the application of concealer and foundation. As this product is very lightweight, it leaves my skin perfectly soft and silky.

Le Camouflage Stylo

Le Camouflage Stylo

Chantecaille Le Camouflage Stylo This concealer glides on smoothly and decreases the appearance of dark circles due to its anti-fatigue complex. I love that a little product goes a long way and that it instantly brightens my eye area while also bluring imperfections. Sometimes, especially when I use the phenomenal tanning drops by Clarins for the face during my nighttime routine (I wrote about them here), I just apply a tiny amount of Le Camouflage Stylo and skip the tinted moisturizer.

Just Skin Tinted Moisturizer

Just Skin Tinted Moisturizer

Chantecaille Just Skin I was most curious about this tinted moisturizer before we went to London and have been using it almost daily since May. Let me tell you, Just Skin is fantastic! It’s very lightweight and offers just the right amount of coverage for this irresistible summer glow [i.e. it doesn’t clog pores or covers up my freckles but does a wonderful job balancing my skin tone]. Another plus: it contains SPF.

Radiance Gel Bronzer

Radiance Gel Bronzer

Chantecaille Radiance Gel Bronzer Since finding this product, it has been my top contour bronzer. I LOVE it so much! Again, it’s very lightweight and the gel-like formula blends easily. This Radiance Gel Bronzer has the most natural finish without the look of makeup. It’s as if you’re glowing from within.

Cheek Gelée in “Happy”

Cheek Gelée in “Happy”

Chantecaille Cheek Gelee in Happy This is also a must-have product for a summery glow. I have to admit, I was a bit sceptical at first. But just as the bronzer, this Cheek Gelée is buildable, blends beautifully and leaves you with the most naturally flushed cheeks ever. What I also like is that tiny little shimmer particles reflect light perfectly and, thus, give the face a very glowy and dewy finish.


Here’s a colour swatch. I applied both Chantecaille make-up products with fingers and did not blend them. Chantecaille Swatches

    You know, I’ve heard only wonderful things about Chantecaille for a while now, but for some reason I just haven’t got to actually trying any of their products out. I do think that you can never go wrong with a good primer, and I think with so many on the market, it’s hard to find one that actually does the job and suits your skin type. This one seems perfect. Their concealer also looks really good. I guess after this post I’ll have to try these products out lol! Hope you’re having a fabulous week so far hugs

      Hi Isabella! You definitely should try some of Chantecaille’s products. For a while I only used their SPF primer but now I am truly convinced about the greatness of their make-up as well. The bronzer is just fantastic for a dewy look. <3
      Hope you're having a wonderful week as well!
