An expedition to Japan and South Korea has introduced spectacular new effects of light to Lucia Pica’s ever-expanding Chanel beauty landscape

In this Chanel Spring 2019 makeup collection VISION D’ASIE: L’ART DU DÉTAIL, depth and refinement are expressed in Pica’s signature play on light and the luminous architecture it builds.

The translucent, new product BAUME ESSENTIEL creates a dewy, “wet” glow on the skin that brings life to the face through gentle sculptural effects. These are enlivened by strokes of pearly luminescence that add definition without a hint of heaviness.

Through these captivating vibrations of light, color and texture, VISION D’ASIE: L’ART DU DÉTAIL comes alive. “I like to give makeup the freedom to travel,” Pica says. “I never want to restrict women to conventions or clichés of perfection.”

Elegant textures and poetic color come together in the Spring 2019 collection that finds resonance in the ordinary and the sublime in the apparently uninteresting.

The eyes shimmer with vitality as a dynamic match between the textures of OMBRE PREMIÈRE CRÈME and LES 9 OMBRES lies at the heart of VISION D’ASIE: L’ART DU DÉTAIL. The creamy, metallic OMBRE PREMIÈRE CRÈME Patine Bronze fascinates on its own but also acts as a transversal shade to be worn under LES 9 OMBRES to intensify their shades. They chime against the powerful, lush matte ROUGE ALLURE VELVET and ROUGE ALLURE LIQUID POWDER lip colour, and the provocative LE VERNIS shades.

VISION D’ASIE: L’ART DU DÉTAIL is a subtle and luminous collection that takes inspiration from the photographic act of capturing details and elevating their textures and color using light. The collection will be available beginning January 7th, 2019 at all Chanel Beauty Counters.
