The Haute Couture shows are the most exciting of the season. The hottest ticket in town and an opportunity to see some of the most exquisite handmade garments ever produced, the Chanel show was utterly breathtaking. I’ve managed to get my hands on some exclusive backstage images from the show which showcase the products from the Autumn/Winter 2012 makeup collection. I love the soft hues which bring out the features of the face, without looking overdone. The colours are very wearable, classic and elegant – a perfect summation of Chanel as a brand. I love the simplicity of the look and it’s something that I would totally wear myself, all year around.
“A little black dress, two-toned shoes and a quilted
hand-bag are all Chanel style essentials. Whilst a passing hint of a
smile, in the wake of a fragrance is the allure of Chanel, initiated by
Gabrielle Chanel and expressed anew each season. For autumn 2012, Peter
Philips, Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, gives a twist to the iconic
house codes with new intensity for the face and a variety of looks for
the eyes. The star of the collection is Ombre Essentielle, the
monochrome eyeshadow, with its intensity and strength of colour.”
The eyeshadow used is Les 4 Ombres in Premier Regard (£37) as well as the liner, Stylo Yeaux Waterproof (£19). Would you rock this look come Autumn?
