Happy birthday to Gabrielle Chanel, born in France on this day in 1883. Today, the designer and her eponymous label are perhaps best known for their signature interlocking Cs and use of quilting and tweed fabrics. She is also credited with introducing jersey fabric to womenswear, as seen in this coat from the Museum’s collection. Explore more of our Chanel holdings here.

MINI MAKEOVER: TREAT AND CONCEAL
Four easy steps to faking a full night’s sleep.
Beauty sleep isn’t just a cliché. Seriously: If I don’t log a full eight hours, I wake up to dark circles and puffy eyes. Recently, I popped into the Beauty Studio at Sephora for a free Treat and Conceal Mini Makeover. In just 15 minutes, I learned the art of disguise. MIMI KUEHN
STEP ONE: PREP
Before beauty expert Deborah could begin camouflaging my under-eye problem area, she applied the soothing, peptide-packed Caudalie Vinexpert Anti-Aging Eye & Lip Serum to depuff delicate, swollen skin. She tapped the potent, lightweight formula generously on my delicate skin below and above my eyes, and on my lids toward my browbones to create an even, smooth texture.
Next, she added Origins Ginzing Refreshing Eye Cream with vitamin C to hydrate and brighten my dark circles, noting that it’s best to apply with your ring finger. After that sunk in, she was ready to address the real issue: discoloration.
STEP TWO: COVER
The next step in faking a fully rested look was to cover dark circles, eliminate redness, and balance out my uneven complexion. Deborah chose a full-coverage formula—Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer in Natural, a shade lighter than my skintone—with vitamin E to soften and protect the under-eye area. She told me when I recreate the look at home, I should use concealer after applying my foundation.
Using the stick concealer like a pencil, she drew a triangle starting from the inner corner of my eye diagonally toward my cheekbone, then back up toward the outer corner of my eye—so instead of following a crescent moon shape below my eyes, she turned it into a triangle.
STEP THREE: BLEND
After, Deborah blended the concealer in with the SEPHORA COLLECTION PRO Flat Concealer #76 brush to balance my complexion.
STEP FOUR: SET
The last step set it all in place. Deborah chose Laura Mercier’s Secret Brightening Powder, lightly touching the translucent powder into my skin with Laura Mercier’s Camouflage Powder Brush.
