Chanel Makeup go all sumptuous with a touch of old school glamour in their new collection for Christmas 2011. The overall feel is unabashed Byzantine luxury. A cacophony of red, gold and light.
Rich gold sprinkles some fairy magic into the festivities. On the face it lights up the skin and the accompanying eye shadows and sparkling powders add definition to the look with colours such as ivory, black, golden beige and red. The creative director of Chanel Makeup, Peter Philips uses the iconic colours of the House of Chanel for a Christmas makeover shimmering with gold and light.
Our complexions will be aglow as we grace the many parties this coming season. Mixing fine jewellery and costume jewellery are an integral part of the style of Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel. She loved their sumptuous radiance or the touch of lightness that they added to an evening gown or simple knit. For his exclusive creation LUMIÈRE SCULPTÉE DE CHANEL, Peter Philips drew inspiration from a belt buckle worn by Mademoiselle in a photo taken in the 1930s. A simple brushstroke adorns the face with an iridescent halo of beige sprinkled with gold. The sheer powder catches the light on cheekbones.
Eyes also get the Peter Philips treatment. Traced along the base of upper lashes, a line of LIGNE EXTRÊME lights up the eyes. Applied along the base of lower lashes, it reflects the light, emphasises the gaze and draws attention to the beauty of the eyes. These is a touch of sparkle to the lipsticks too just to add that final touch to the Christmas magic. One in particular the ROUGE ALLURE is the ultimate, ultra-feminine beauty accessory. Its satiny texture feels like a second skin and dresses up the smile in bold and daring colours with an inimitable touch of provocation. Now you’re ready for that party merry-go-round.
