#NUICONSLOVES THE ESSENTIALS BY LUCIA PICA–CHANEL GLOBAL CREATIVE MAKEUP AND COLOR DESIGNER
As Chanel Global Creative Makeup and Color Designer, Lucia Pica’s vision is based on a modern aesthetic and an innovative color approach that enhances women’s personality. Her reverence for a fresh, glowing complexion has become the foundation for that approach and is embodied by intuitive products designed for effortless application and a naturally radiant finish.
“I love a woman to look polished–but looking polished doesn’t have to mean heavily made up,” she explains. “I find that the little nuances make a character more interesting, and that makeup is a powerful tool in creating those and expressing one’s vision of oneself.”
Since she started working at Chanel, the Italian native developed three products that achieve her vision of beauty: the PALETTE ESSENTIELLE, LES BEIGES WATER-FRESH TINT, and the BAUME ESSENTIEL.
Speaking on her inspiration for the essentials, Pica says: “I never want to restrict women to conventions or clichés of perfection. It is all about enhancing existing beauty to create a fresher and more radiant version of oneself.”

The PALETTE ESSENTIELLE presents the ultimate example of Lucia’s approach to beauty: an elegant palette that she describes as her “signature for skin.” The PALETTE ESSENTIELLE unites three essential allies that can be applied with the finger tips or with a brush, for a fresh and radiant complexion all daylong. There is a concealer to cover imperfections, a highlighter for a touch of radiance and a blush for a veil of color on the cheeks and lips. An essential traveling companion, the PALETTE ESSENTIELLE is the ideal product ‘to use where you need it’, says Lucia Pica.
LES BEIGES WATER FRESH TINT
LES BEIGES WATER-FRESH TINT presents an innovative approach to foundation, launching a new product category. With its ‘bare skin’ effect, this water-fresh tint enhances the beauty of every woman and delivers an expression of color as pure a sit is imperceptible on the skin. Its micro fluidic formula, composed of 75% water,brings a fresh and sensorial effect. Its oil micro-droplets filled with pure pigments, melt onto the skin to create luminosity and instantly even out skin with a sheer finish. LES BEIGES WATER-FRESH TINT can be applied in many ways: with the brush on the whole face, from the center outwards, or used in a layering ritual as a base or an illuminating topcoat.
BAUME ESSENTIEL is a translucent balm that illuminates and subtly redefines the face. This silky gel stick melts onto the skin with a radiant freshness and a luminous dewy effect and can be applied everywhere on the face.
