July 4th Beauty Inspiration with Chantecaille

With July 4th celebrations not too far off, Team TME wanted to share a little American pride, via a beauty look as bold as the fireworks. Chantecaille sent over an easy to do look that’s beautiful and bold in Red, White and Blue! Team TME would like to give a shout out to our Canadian readers … Happy Canada Day! And to our French readers … Bastille Day is just around the corner on July 14. So, with our two countries sharing the same colors you can keep this look in mind for your celebration!


Set off fireworks with a red lip. Smooth Lip Stick in Poppy ($36) onto your pout for a creamy, pigmented pop of color that will last all day at the beach, the pool or your friend’s BBQ. The formula is enriched with Vitamins A and C for moisture plus an SPF 6-8 for extra protection.


An ideal oil-free, lightweight moisturizer for a day in the sun, Water Flower Fluid ($72) is a hydrating and brightening white fluid that is loaded with Vitamin C and is especially designed for younger skin. It can be used in warmer, more humid climates and on all skin types. Apply before heading outside after cleansing your face to create a base for your American Beauty look.

Essential after a day out in the sun, the Jasmine and Lily Healing Mask ($82) is an ideal first aid for sunburned or wind chapped skin. This luxurious white cooling and hydrating mask soothes, brightens and hydrates dry and irritated skin and doubles as a sleep-in night cream to be used for maximum results.


Incorporate blue into your look with a modern, defined eye. Use the easy to apply 24 Hour Waterproof Liner in Sapphire ($26) across the top lash line for an eye-enhancing pop with lasting definition. Waterproof pigments protect against rain, shine and humidity for up to 24 hours - ideal for all day wear. Next, apply Opal Lasting Eye Shade ($26) to the lid and Lapis Lasting Eye Shade ($26) to the outer corners. The texture of these shadows is uniquely ultra-fine which allows them to never fade, crease or run.

Chantecaille products are available at select retail locations such as Barney’s New York, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Space NK, select Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales and Nordstrom Locations and online at Chantecaille!

Chantecaille Fall 2017 Save The Forest Eyeshadow Palette

Every minute, 50 acres of rain forest are destroyed, and two-dozen species become extinct every day. In the Brazilian Amazon, the world’s largest rain forest, deforestation rose in 2015 for the first time in nearly a decade, to nearly two million acres from August 2015 to July 2016.

We Need Our Forests To Keep Us Beautiful -- As the ‘lungs of our earth,’ our forests are the planet’s sources of oxygen and water, and act as agents to stabilize our climate. Chantecaille conservation focus for Fall 2017 is the crisis of our disappearing forests and the ripple effect it has on humans and animals, like gorillas, who depend on them for survival. Deforestation kills our globe’s natural green spaces to make way for relentless plantings of soy, palm oil and cattle grazing grounds. As the largest source of carbon dioxide emissions after fossil fuel burning, it causes 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions.

“When you realize the value of all life, you dwell less on what is past and concentrate more on the preservation of the future.” - Dian Fossey

Missing In The Mist -- Gorillas are slowly losing their grasp on this earth as their natural habitats, the forests, are being destroyed by deforestation. Chantecaille's trip to the Congo in the winter of 2016 showed the brand firsthand that these kind, intelligent creatures, which are 98% identical to humans in their DNA, are the perfect symbol of a changing planet. Deforestation is slowly reaching their habitats in the Congo and in Uganda, as the earth is tilled for human production and consumption.

SAVE THE FOREST EYESHADOW PALETTE ($85) -- The four shades in the palette were inspired by the lush, natural beauty of Virunga National Park in the Congo, home to some of the last remaining gorillas on the planet. From the spectacular early morning mist that rolls through the forest to the vibrant golden light in the sky at daybreak, the overwhelming beauty of this densely forested oasis served as our muse this season. A portion of the proceeds from the Save The Forests Eye Shade Palette will benefit the Rainforest Alliance and its energized, impactful work in protecting our planet’s dwindling forests and the precious wildlife that depends on them.

DAWN: A golden brown
VOLCANO: A rich brown
MIST: A pale pink highlighter
BAMBOO: A deep olive green

The Chantecaille Fall 2017 Save The Forest Eyeshadow Palette is currently available for pre-order online at Chantecaille Beaute and Saks.

World Elephant Day: How Will You Celebrate?

World Elephant Day is tomorrow, August 12th and how will you celebrate these beautiful creatures? Did you know that elephants are the planet's largest living land mammals? Elephants symbolize strength, wisdom, and intelligence -- and with good reason. Elephants, like humans, will care for one another’s babies and mourn the loss of one another. Known as Africa's Gardeners, they clear new paths in the bush and disperse seeds contributing to the ecosystem. Sadly, the threat to elephants from ivory poachers is greater than ever with an estimated 38,000 elephants killed annually for their tusks.

Before we tell you what we’re doing to celebrate one of our favorite creatures, we need to give a shout out to a brand that has a long-standing commitment to philanthropic endeavors surrounding wildlife and the environment -- Chantecaille. In 2012, Chantecaille launched its limited edition “Elephant Palette” and “Elephant Cheek Colour.”  Proceeds for these products were donated to The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, who Chantecaille has partnered with in the past.

L to R "Elephant Palette" & "Elephant Cheek Colour" Currently SOLD OUT 

Chantecaille continues to strengthen its commitment to philanthropic causes each season with the launch of “cause-metics” that raise awareness for issues that need immediate attention today. The limited edition “cause-metic” palettes have been influential in educating a broader audience and engaging more people in conservation and global issues … we’ll be bringing you Chantecaille’s newest limited edition cause-metic, as well as the Fall 2017 Chantecaille Collection soon -- so stay tuned!

As for World Elephant Day we look to The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. The Trust works on the front line -- in the field, to protect the elephants, treat and rescue victims of the ivory trade, and educate people on the importance of these great creatures. Speaking of victims, many baby elephants become orphans due to the illegal ivory trade. One way in which you can celebrate World Elephant Day is to foster a baby elephant! That’s how we’ll be celebrating. This is, of course, not the only thing that you can do. Visit The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust to learn more about these elegant creatures and what you can do to help. 

Happy World Elephant Day! ~xo Team TME

Soothing Skincare Essentials from Chantecaille

While it has no doubt felt like summer over the past few weeks, the official start of Summer 2017 won't happen until this Wednesday, June 21 … yes, the longest day of the year!!!! And that will probably mean that you’ll be spending more time outside, which may also mean that your skin may need a little extra love. And, who better to turn to for skin-loving care than Chantecaille? So, without further ado, we’re sharing a few of our Chantecaille Essentials for fun in the sun and amazing sun care!

Before you step outside to enjoy the balmy days, you need to protect the largest organ of your body … your skin! Ultra Sun Protection Sunscreen SPF 50 Broad Spectrum Primer ($88) is Chantecaille’s powerful skin and collagen protector. Ultra Sun Protection Sunscreen offers the ultimate anti-aging protection from the environment. Ultra Sun Protection Sunscreen’s oil-free, lightweight and mattifying fluid is perfect for all skin types. It can be worn everyday on its own, or under foundation as a smoothing face primer -- creating the perfect canvas for flawless and long-lasting makeup application.

Of course we are all too well aware that fun can sometimes leave us having overdone it, and that is when we need some soothing care. Eau de Rose de Mai Pure Rosewater ($64) Using only artisan well water and the unique Rose de Mai from Grasse, France, Chantecaille has created a healing, moisturizing, and unusually uplifting rosewater spray. The hand harvested Rose de Mai is unusual in its ability to dissolve in its entirety then reconstitute itself in the water. All the healing benefits of the rose, eachpetal loaded with Vitamin C and anti-aging powers are transferred to the water. It’s the first item that we grab when we’ve had too much sun. Another major bonus is that Eau de Rose de Mai Pure Rosewater is cruelty-free, paraben-free, lanolin-free, petrochemical-free, and without animal or mineral derivatives.

Next up in the Holy Grail of after-sun care is Blanc Gardenia Brightening Essence ($185). is a luxurious and lightweight moisturizer. Blanc Gardenia Brightening Essence is rich in antioxidants and discoloration preventers proven to erase the look of aging and reveal flawless, radiant looking skin. The essence of the Gardenia flower, a cousin to the rose, combined with seven brightening ingredients, targets the appearance of pigmentation irregularities and causes of discoloration in five key areas while simultaneously revealing a more lifted and firmer looking appearance.

Rounding out our go-to products is Chantecaille’s Jasmine and Lily Healing Mask ($82) that not only brings moisture back to dehydrated skin, it is our number one go-to mask all year round! This magic in a jar smells so incredibly delicious that before it’s even applied, the relaxation and Zen begins. The Jasmine and Lily Healing Mask is a cooling, calming mask that soothes, brightens and moisturizes dehydrated, irritated skin. It is fabulous for skin that has been over exposed to the elements and acts as an instant first-aid treatment for sunburnt, wind chapped or jet-lagged skin. We highly recommend taking this mask along on any of your summer travels, as it not only has so many healing properties but also doubles as a night cream!

Chantecaille products are available online at Chantecaille and select retail locations around the globe.

Priyanka Chopra At The 2017 CFDA Awards GTL With Chantecaille

The 2017 CFDA Awards were held last night June 5 in NYC and in attendance among the many celebrities was the stunning Priyanka Chopra. Bringing a little glamour to Priyanka’s look was world-renowned celebrity makeup artist Yumi Mori. Inspired by the Flappers of the 1920’s and the fringe and sparkle of Priyanka’s Michael Kors dress, Yumi created this glamorous gilded look. The Makeup Examiner has all the info on how you can recreate this enchanting look at home!


1. Yumi applied Chantecaille Gold Energizing Eye Recovery Masks ($195) to Priyanka’s eyes for an instant lifting and depuffing effect.

2. She then spritzed Pure Rosewater ($68) all over Priyanka’s face for a light touch of moisture.

3. Yumi dabbed a little bit of Lip Potion ($44) onto her lips. This softened her lips while I did the rest of her makeup before applying her lip color. It created a perfect base.


1. Yumi mixed Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation ($78) in two shades -- Shea and Sand. She applied the mix all over Priyanka’s face with a foundation brush, and then tapped it into her skin with a makeup sponge for a natural looking texture.

2. Yumi used two different Le Camouflage Stylo Concealers ($52) on Priyanka. First, she used shade 8 for her under eyes, nose, and around her lips to reduce any redness. Secondly she used a lighter shade, 4C, to highlight her brow bones, cheeks, T-zone, and the bridge of her nose.

3. Finally, she lightly dusted High Definition Perfecting Powder in Bronze ($75) to her T-zone to set her foundation in place.


1. Yumi applied the eyeshadow “Lantern” from the Le Chrome Luxe Eye Duo ($58) in
“Gardens of Marrakech” all over her lid up to the crease of her brow bone.

2. At the last minute, Yumi wanted to add a saturated pop of gold to Priyanka’s lids, so she dabbed Lumière ($41) in Brilliance on top of her eyeshadow with her fingertip.

3. She finished the eyes by curling her lashes and added four coats of Chantecaille Faux Cils Longest Lash Mascara ($72) for a bold defined look.


1. For an opaque bright red lip, Yumi mixed Chantecaille Lip Chic ($38) in Dahlia with Matte Chic ($39) in Carmen.

Pro Tips From Yumi: “For a sheer wash of color on her cheeks, I dabbed Lip Chic ($38) in Gaia, a dark burgundy with hints of gold flecks, onto the apples of her cheek for color and dimension. I blended well into her skin with my fingertips. Then I brushed the Poudre Lumière ($45) all over Priyanka’s face and collarbones for added luminosity.”

All Chantecaille products are available at online at Chantecaille and select retail locations.

Top Eco-Chic Beauty Products For Earth Day and Everyday

Each year since 1970, Earth Day has been celebrated on April 22. An early Happy Earth Day to you! No one at The Makeup Examiner is going to tell anyone how to live his or her life, but we are going to share a little bit of our founder’s story. Yvonne was raised in an eco-conscious household by an --across the board-- activist mother. She shared with us that she’d always taken for granted that other people lived the same way that she did. Entering her teenage years, she had zero interest in the things that her mother taught her and became very interested in big business. 

Fast forward to eight years ago when she left a position as a CEO and decided to become a freelance writer. Wanting to give a voice to the voiceless, Yvonne focused on women’s issues. The media outlet that gave her a steady gig had asked if she’d wanted a beauty column. As she tells it, “I thought, ‘Yeah, like a hole in the head,’ but I took the gig anyway and hit the ground running. Six years later, I have been privy to a unique view of the beauty industry and have worked with so many amazing and wonderful people. This journey has taught me more than I could have imaged to learn about sustainably, the environment and how to tell the difference between a true eco-friendly product and a brand that is just straight up greenwashing.” Sustainable, organic, and fair trade are the issues that we hold close to our hearts and in celebration of Earth Day, Team TME has chosen a few of our favorite eco-friendly brands! Oops, we almost forgot that each of the brands listed are also cruelty-free!


Chantecaille - Chantecaille Beauté launched its brand with the philosophy of making women feel beautiful and beautifully making a commitment to the environment through responsible practices and philanthropic endeavors. Chantecaille’s philosophies haven’t changed, and we’ve yet to try a Chantecaille product that we don’t love. Non-GMO Too!

Rouge Bunny Rouge (RBR) – Pretty much still in the Indie category, Rouge Bunny Rouge is quickly becoming a favorite by all. With enchanting (and minimal) recyclable packing, Rouge Bunny Rouge has us hopping for more!

jane iredale - The Makeup Examiner Team chose jane iredale, as the brand’s Hydration Sprays have earned ECOCERT’s Natural and Organic Cosmetics certification. In conjunction with earning the aforementioned award from ECOCERT, jane iredale products are made without harsh chemical dyes, talc, parabens, formaldehyde, heavy metals or synthetic preservatives.


Gabriel Cosmetics – Offering a plethora of colors, Gabriel Nail Polishes are both eco-friendly and “5-free.” Plus, the brand is completely committed to sustainable practices.


Davines - Davines is a cruelty free, organic and sustainable brand that belongs to 1% For the Planet! There isn’t much more to elaborate upon other then to say that each product we’ve tried from this Italian brand is exceptional.

Pureology – Understanding the importance of water conservation, Pureology has taken conservation measures that include designing shampoo and conditioner packaging that use 39 percent less water during the manufacturing process, utilizes 100 percent recyclable packaging made of 50 percent post-consumer recycled materials, uses 100 percent vegan ingredients, and ultimately saves nearly 60,000 gallons of water each year through its overall conservation efforts.

ECRU New York – ECRU is dedicated to making products that are eco-friendly. ECRU New York’s products are not tested on animals and do not harm the environment. Of course, all of the brand’s packaging is recyclable.


Eco-Amour Advanced Skin Fitness – This brand has been a TME favorite for a long time. All Eco-Amour products are organic, vegan, cruelty-free and packaged in recyclable containers.

Merlot Skin Care - Featured on The TODAY show with Kathie Lee and Hoda, is a family-owned and operated brand with its products made in the USA. That aside, the entire Merlot Skin Care line is cruelty-free and incorporates the healing benefits of natural red grape seed antioxidants, which are gentle and effective.

NUDE Skincare – The brand’s products are made without parabens, phthalates, sulphates and other harmful chemicals, and they also avoid non-biodegradable mineral oils and silicones.


L’Occitane - The beautiful company with Parisian-inspired stores across the nation offers many eco-friendly products. L’Occitane offers refill pouches for most of its best-selling product formulas like soaps, face wash, shampoo, etc., which is the perfect way to refill your bottle or jar without having to purchase another container.

Daily Concepts – The brand’s products are environmentally-friendly and made from natural components such as soy based foam, charcoal and turmeric. Daily Concepts is a vegan brand and is committed to the global community through it’s participation in Lava Mae, a non-profit organization determined to “deliver dignity one shower at a time” to the world’s homeless.


Lotus Wei - The Makeup Examiner chose to highlight this particular company because of its all-around philosophies of integrating the plant, planet and beauty. Lotus Wei offers Flower Elixirs, Balancing Serums, Energy Mists, and Transformative Perfumes. Each of which are available in varying moods -- Joy Juice, Infinite Love, Pure Energy, Inspired Action, Quiet Mind and Inner Peace -- aimed to help us focus upon a specific issue in our lives by shifting our mood and physiology.

What’s New At Chantecaille For Spring 2017

The newly launched Chantecaille Rose de Mai Body Oil is joined by Rose de Mai Eye Lift this Spring. The Rose deMai Eye Lift brings a very new way to treat the delicate eye area, formulated with 89.4% naturals. With a silky gel crème, created using an exclusive technology called microfluidity, is made up of one billion imperceptible microdrops of oil gently dispersed in our signature Rose de Mai Rosewater. Massaging the gel crème into the skin releases intense moisture and our active formula, which treats the delicate eye area to a mini eye-lift.

Visible signs of eye aging, including puffiness, dark circles, fine lines, wrinkles, and lack of firmness are all dramatically reduced. The unique pen applicator features a cooling ceramic tip that refreshes on contact while dispensing a perfect mono-dose of product that absorbs quickly into skin. Rose de Mai Eye Lift ($97).

Chantecaille introduces its newest cruelty-free and vegan professional-grade brushes designed for the most precise makeup application. Sleek gunmetal casing and blonde wood handles makes them stylish new additions to our suite of application tools (and to your vanity). The cruelty-free, synthetic vegan bristles are made to work perfectly and respect the texture of the brand’s sophisticated powders. Soft and gentle on skin, they pick up the perfect amount of product and apply color seamlessly.

  • Eyeliner Brush ($28) - Newly redesigned with shorter bristles for the ultimate precision, this angled brush makes creating any look effortless. From smoky layers to a sharp cat eye, any look is achievable.
  • Eye Basic Brush ($30) - A unique angled shape makes this all-purpose brush the perfect multi-tasker for creating dimensional looks. Use it to apply a base shade on the entire lid with the angled side, and then rotate 180° for foolproof crease application.

Introducing the Chantecaille Brightening Eye Kajal ($29) - your secret weapon against tired eyes. Based on an ancient beauty secret, the long-wearing kajal formula is applied directly to the waterline to make the whites of eyes whiter and instantly makes your eyes look brighter and more awake. Infused with soothing aloe vera, the non-irritating and ultra-gliding formula was specifically designed for the sensitive waterline of the eyes. More natural than the stark white pencils of the past, the redness-cutting neutral shade awakens the eye area without the look of makeup. Shade: Nude - A cool neutral tone that instantly brightens.

New Shades of Lip Chic! Chantecaille’s lightweight, glossy lipstick is now available in three new shades inspired by Spring’s hottest beauty trend -- lips that pop with bright pink and fuchsia hues inspired by nature’s freshest blooms. The new Lip Chic shades, Lily, Petunia, and Tuberose, ($37 each) have a rich, meltingly soft texture that brings the shine and subtle plumping effects of a gloss. The cushiony formula leaves lips feeling ultra-soft and slick without any stickiness. Lily - A soft, playful peach; Tuberose - A demure, warm pink; Petunia - A bright, sheer pink.

Introducing the two newest shades of Chantecaille’s innovative matte liquid lipstick ($39 each) inspired by the soft pinks and peaches on Spring runways. Now in Marisa, a velvety rose petal pink, and Jerry, a warm peach, Matte Chic is a featherweight, long-wearing formula that is virtually weightless and incredibly moisturizing. Marisa - A velvety rose pink; Jerry - A warm peach. 

The Mermaid Eye Matte Trio ($95), is a follow-up to Chantecaille’s unique shimmering and lustrous original shades and is now available in a luxuriously velvety, matte formula. Water resistant and smoothing with a silky texture, the three newest matte shades create the perfect canvas for layering and contouring for flawless, naturally defined eyes.

Packaged in a set to create the ideal neutral eye that is both fresh and clean, Mermaid Eye Mattes offer the perfect base for a look that is modern with the ability to build intensity and dimension. A creamy vanilla, soft smoky grey, and deep neutral brown offer the foundation to create any look from a soft daytime eye to a deeper bolder style.

Inspired by three exceptional female conservationists, the shades BEE, ELEPHANT, and LION, were created to bring awareness to the issues threatening these species in Africa, as well as three women who work tirelessly and passionately to protect them. Motifs of the three species adorn the lids of each shade they inspired, and 5% of the proceeds will be donated to the following:

Solange Knowles At The 59th Annual Grammy Awards Get The Look

At the 2017 Grammy Awards, celebrity makeup artist Dana Delaney gave the award winner Solange Knowles a warm and shimmering neutral look using Chantecaille skincare and makeup.

Banana was used in the center of the face and Suntan was blended through the hollows of the cheeks and forehead to match her complexion. Le Camouflage Stylo Concealer was applied in areas that needed extra coverage. She then brushed Chantecaille HD Perfecting Powder in her T-zone to prevent shine.
3. For a touch of light and warmth, Dana used a buffing brush to blend Radiance Gel Bronzer to add dimension to Solange’s cheeks. Liquid Lumiere in Sheen was lightly tapped on the tops of her cheeks and the center of her eyelids with a damp makeup sponge. A hint of Cheek Crème in Shy was added for a flush of color.

1. For shimmering lids with touches of copper and gold, Dana used the Protect the Lions palette on the lid before going over it with Mermaid Eye Color in Copper.
2. Chantecaille Luster Glide Silk Infused Eyeliner in Earth was applied to the lashline and slightly smudged using her finger. She coated Solange’s lashes with Faux Cils Longest Lash Mascara.
3. Solange’s eyebrows were brushed up and filled in using Waterproof Brow Definer in Oak Brown.
4. For a graphic visual, Dana gave Solange black accents above her eyelids with Le Stylo Eyeliner in black.

1. Solange’s lips were lined in Lip Definer in Tone.
2. Dana mixed Chantecaille Lip Potion and Gaia Lip Chic and dabbed it on the center of her lips for a light neutral hue.

1. For a healthy glow, Dana mixed Chantecaille’s new Rose de Mai Body Oil with a drop of Radiance Gel Bronzer and rubbed it into Solange’s skin to highlight her shoulders, arms and legs.

Celebrate National Lipstick Day 2015 With TME Picks

Today, July 29 is National Lipstick Day. And in the words of Elizabeth Taylor, “Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.” Okay, well you may not want to pour yourself a drink just yet, but you may want to pucker up that pretty pout and put on some lipstick. After all, we know that lipstick is one of the easiest ways to change up our look or change up a sour mood -- TME’s editor is infamously known for whipping out a tube and shoving it at anyone who isn’t in the greatest spirits … as usual we digress.

In celebration of National Lipstick Day 2015 Team TME has picked a few of our favorite lipstick brands and shades to share with our readers, along with a few fun lipstick facts. Did you know that lipstick has been around for about 5,000 years? Ancient Sumerian men and women crushed gems mixed with tar and decorated their lips. In the US 900 million tubes of lipstick are sold each year and 80 percent of women state that they wouldn’t walk out the front door sans lipstick! Well, there you have it. Now, peruse our picks, hopefully find one that you love and Happy National Lipstick Day!
