Chanel Temple Takeover

As Global Makeup Artist for Hourglass, Chanel Temple @chanelathourglass has her pick of Hourglass’ innovative makeup, tools and skincare. It makes sense then that we turned to Chanel to ask which five Hourglass products should be on our radar. Chanel had no hesitation in calling out these favourites…

hourglass veil mineral primer


Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer

“This is the product that made me believe in primers. It’s vital for keeping my complexion beautiful and fresh all day long while smoothing out any imperfections. I also use it as a mixer with a powder blusher for a more airy, stained effect.”


Hourglass No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil

“I love using this before bed and at the very beginning of my makeup application so if I decide to use a matte lip, my lips are hydrated and prepared. It’s packed with nutrients and the luxurious gold tip applicator has a cooling effect that’s unlike anything I’ve ever felt.”

Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick

“This makes my skin look photoshopped. It’s a longwearing, waterproof foundation that works whether you want full or light coverage and it feels lightweight and comfortable on the skin. I use a lighter shade under my eyes as a brightening concealer and a darker shade for my contour.”


Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette

“An Instagram filter in powder form and my go-to for a subtle, all-over glow. Our Ambient Lighting Powders act as personal, lighting technicians for your skin so whatever lighting you’re in you look radiant. I mix all three powders in the palette together and dust all over my face.”

Hourglass Arch Brow Micro Sculpting Pencil

“This allows me to create the most natural, hair-like strokes. My brows look defined and still fluffy and the formula is smudge-proof which is very important for me. It’s always a little warm in Los Angeles and I want to avoid brow meltdowns.”
