Chanel Métiers D’Art Paris-Bombay 2012 Beauty

Chanel Metiers DArt Paris Bombay 2012 Beauty Bombay Express

Peter Philips created another gorgeous makeup collection to compliment Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel Métiers D’Art Paris-Bombay 2012 presentation. The ubiquitous kohl-rimmed eyes so popular in the South East was reinterpreted for the runway and were the main focus on the face.  Lips and cheeks were kept minimal and natural and all of the emphasis was on the very dark eyes.

Several limited edition products were created for the “Bombay Express” collection including POUDRE COMPACTE in Route des Indes de CHANEL, ILLUSION D’OMBRE Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Nirvana, JOUES CONTRASTE Powder Blush in Brume d’Or, ROUGE COCO SHINE Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Empreinte and LE VERNIS Nail Colour in Diwali.  I am most excited about Illusion d’Ombre in Nirvana and Le Vernis in Diwali.  Based on the glimpses we saw on the runway, I’m guessing that Nirvana will be black – though I’m wondering how different it will be to Mirifique.  Diwali or the “festival of lights” is one of the most joyous celebrations in India.  Based on the runway images Le Vernis Diwali looks goldish-luminiscent and based on the name I can imagine the color was inspired by lights.  The Exclusive Creation Collection Chanel ‘Bombay Express’ will be available in select Chanel makeup counters in June 2012.

Chanel Links: Thanksgiving 2011 Weekend

I took a much-needed few days off to celebrate Thanksgiving (and my birthday) but that didn’t stop Chanel or Karl Lagerfeld from making the news. Let’s play a little catch-up to see what happened in the Chanel world last week…

I’m not sure why everyone on the interweb is so surprised that Karl Lagerfeld makes a lot of money considering who he works for and the breadth of his projects – but he does, ok? WWD

karl lagerfeld penKarl Lagerfeld will be donning a new hat - that of editor. In February 2012, “Lagerfeld will guest edit all Metro editions around the world. As part of the project, he will create a series of collectible sketches, illustrations and columns as well as choose the stories for the newspaper and give his notoriously provocative comments on the news of the day.”  Metro

14 stars were chosen by 15 designers as their ‘muses’, and Chanel picked Yoon Seung Ah in Vogue magazine’s latest pictorial in the December issue. (Not sure which country’s edition of Vogue).  AllKPop

I Told You So!

A few weeks ago I posted a Dior video that showed a pinball machine game animation and I likened it to Chanel’s “Here Comes the Beauty Pack” video that brought Chanel cosmetics to robotic life. I know it was a bit of a stretch but for me Dior’s video was reminiscent of Chanel’s video – especially when looked at in the context of all the other copying that has been happening.

One of La Chanelphile’s readers, Alexandre Fons, brought this Dior video to my attention.  The video was uploaded about a month ago and depicts a Dior cosmetics animation in the form of Tetris, Pacman and Super Mario Brothers.  Sorry, but there’s no arguing your way around this one Dior – so unoriginal! Thank you Alexandre for bringing this to my attention!

Peter Philips’ Cure for Tired Eyes

peter philips chanel le crayon kohl in clair

Peter Philips is a makeup genius so whatever he says works for tired-looking eyes, I want to try. Allure Magazine caught up with Peter Philips backstage at fashion week to find out what product he can’t live without and it’s the Chanel Le Crayon Kohl in Clair.  He lines the inner rim of models’ eye with the beige pencil and this trick is the secret to all of his runway looks.

“Beige liner takes out any redness the girls might have. When use you do this with white liner, it just looks too much like makeup, and too noticeable—this is more natural.

I have to agree about the white eyeliner – I tried it a few years back and it was too obvious looking.  I definitely going to try the beige pencil trick.  Do you have any tricks up your sleeves?

Chanel Holiday 2011 Les Scintillances de Chanel

Chanel Holiday 2011 Makeup Collection LES SCINTILLANCES DE CHANEL

Coco Chanel herself was said to wear gold eyeshadow and red lipstick.  It seems the Chanel Holiday 2011 Les Scintillances de Chanel collection hearkens back to the original look Mademoiselle herself favored. The collection is full of limited edition items but if you had to take away the overriding theme – red and gold. When you think about it, around the holidays with lots of parties and celebrations, it doesn’t get more festive than red and gold.  And besides, in my opinion red and gold are the best accent colors to Chanel’s signature black and white.

One of the standouts of the collection are the textured pressed powder inspired by a Chanel belt buckle.  The collection also includes loose powders, eyeshadow singles, eyeshadow duos, Rouge Allure lipsticks, Glossimers and of course, Le Vernis. The collection should be available in stores now.

Details of the collection:

LUMIÈRE SCULPTÉE DE CHANEL HIGHLIGHTING POWDER
A true visionary, Mademoiselle Chanel found inspiration everywhere. Today, the Paris Makeup Studio does similarly — capturing the gilded beauty of Mademoiselle’s treasured belt buckle in LUMIÈRE SCULPTÉE DE CHANEL Highlighting Powder, an illuminating powder that gently highlights the skin with a sheer blend of tender pink and pearlescence. Shades of ivory and pink dusted with tone-on-tone mother-of-pearls make this palette the height of glamour and sophistication. $72.00 Limited Edition

ROUGE ALLURE LUMINOUS SATIN LIP COLOUR
Colour lips classic for the holidays with ROUGE ALLURE Luminous Satin Lip Colour in two new shade offerings. Timeless reds offer instant elegance and drama, while hues of pink create a feminine and festive effect.
$32.00 Limited Edition

LE VERNIS NAIL COLOUR
This holiday season, nails are take-notice in festive red or iconic black. $25.00 Limited Edition

Chanel Spring-Summer 2012 Ready-to-Wear Runway Beauty

Chanel Spring Summer 2012 BeautyPearls of beauty – that’s how I would sum up the hair and beauty at the Chanel spring-summer 2012 ready-to-wear presentation.  Pearls were on the apparel and on the skin as well – where you would normally see beauty marks, facial jewelry and even the models’ spines instead had delicate pearls.  Makeup was kept pretty simple – eyeshadow reminiscent  of mother of pearl with black eyeliner paired with natural blush and lips.

I especially loved the hair – wet hair was the perfect finishing touch to an underwater-themed collection.  The wet hair was twisted into low side buns at the nape of the models’ necks and pearls floated in the models’ hair.

Last but not least we have the nail color!  From what I could see from the runway images I saw 2 colors: white and coral.  I don’t know if it’s an existing white color like Pearl Drop or a new one.  It would be lovely to see a white iridescent shade that’s like mother of pearl.  I’ll fill you in on details as soon as I receive the information from Chanel.  For now enjoy these photos…
