In beauty, as in life, often we must look to the past in order to move forwards with a fresh perspective...

And so it is with the latest in our signature beauty tutorial series. Starring actress, Gala Gordon – whose debut role was as one of Chekhov’s titular Three Sisters at London's Young Vic theatre, and who conjures all of the demure, dark mystery of a Hitchcockian heroine – Kay Montano harkens to a by-gone era of Hollywood elegance with Chanel’s Spring/Summer '19 VISION D’ASIE: L’ART DU DÉTAIL collection and its latest Rouge Coco Flash release.

Lips take the spotlight in Montano’s film noir epic. From the richest raspberry pigment to the most subtle blush of nude, a symphony of sumptuous shades tell a tale of decadence and drama...

Makeup by Kay Montano at The Wall Group for CHANEL using the VISION D’ASIE: L’ART DU DÉTAIL and Rouge Coco Flash collections.
