Chanel Métiers d’Art Paris-Édimbourg Beauty

When I saw the models walking down the runway for the Chanel Métiers d’Art Paris-Édimbourg show, the first thought that came to mind was Mary Queen of Scots. When I learned that the presentation would take place at Linlithgow palace, the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots, I wanted to learn more about the tragic queen because I had a hunch that Karl Lagerfeld would be inspired by her. Looking at the red hair of many of the models and the upswept hair, it was hard not to see the similarities to the portraits of Mary Queen of Scots. The pale skin and the flushed cheeks evoked the cold weather of the Scottish Highlands and should be an easy look to replicate – especially in the fall and winter months.  I also loved the winding braids that evoked Renaissance hairstyles.

Here’s a rundown of the products Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup used the following CHANEL products to create the runway beauty looks:
