Jennifer Aniston in Chanel Beauté for Horrible Bosses Premiere

jennifer aniston in chanel beaute for horrible bosses premiereThis movie looks really funny – I can’t wait to see it!  Word below straight from Chanel on how the look was achieved and how you can get the look…

CHANEL Celebrity Makeup Artist, Angela Levin not only created Jennifer Aniston’s sultry beauty look for this summer’s hottest new comedy, Horrible Bosses, she also created the world’s most recognized and beloved actress’s look for the UK premiere of the movie.

While Angela created an edgy, sexy look for Jennifer’s character, the love-deprived Dr. Julia Harris, she and Jennifer decided to contrast that seductive look with a classic, elegant appearance for the red carpet. Instead of creating, bold “come-hither” smoky eyes, Angela used softer colors from the newest collection of Illusion D’Ombre Eyeshadows from CHANEL. Mixing shimmering white and khaki shades from the new line, Angela delicately applied the colors to Jennifer’s lids. Angela then used darker shades to create a very muted, fading smoky eye which made Jennifer’s blue eyes standout on the red carpet. Angela finished by applying two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Intense mascara which gave a bit of drama to the entire look.

Jennifer’s lips were adorned with one of the hottest new products from CHANEL, Rouge Coco Shine. Angela used a pearlized, nude beige shade which gave a dashing hint of color and sparkle to the lips. Lastly, to make sure Jennifer’s skin was glamorously supple, Angela applied CHANEL Sublimage La Crème to all exposed parts of her body and added a hint of shine with a golden skin illuminator.

Products Used:

CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Eyeshadows in Fantasme and Epatant, $32.00 each.
CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Prelude, $57.00
CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir, $30.00
CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Canotier, $32.00
CHANEL Sublimage La Crème Texture Supreme, $390.00
All available at CHANEL department and specialty stores and chanel.com

Sneak Peek: La Chanelphile Chanel Beauté Editorial

chanel cosmetics illusions d'ombre fall 2011 collection

This past weekend I assembled my dream team of talented ladies for the first of what will hopefully be a regular experience:  a La Chanelphile Chanel Beauté Editorial.  The Chanel PR team in NY was kind and generous enough to send over the Fall-Winter Illusions d’Ombre collection for La Chanelphile to photograph.  I thought it would be fun to include vintage Chanel accessories into the shoot courtesy of The Goods! by Liz Baca.  Here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come…

Last week I posted images of the beauty at the Chanel Fall-Winter 2011/2012 show and I found more images from behind the scenes – I especially seeing Peter Philips at work.  I love dark smokey eyes and the eye makeup in the couture show was smoldering!  You can achieve the look by using these products.

Chanel 2011/2012 Fall/Winter Haute Couture Makeup By Peter Philips

Chanel 2011/2012 Fall/Winter Haute Couture Makeup By Peter Philips
In the early stages of the Haute Couture Collection, a few key elements came up.  Karl mentioned the masculine/feminine silhouette, the decor (Place Vendôme), the fact that we were going to do a show at night and the flashlight shoes. That’s where the veil/burglar idea came from. The focus is on the eyes, but through a veil. Skin is pure with a hint of blush and the lips are velvet peach. On the nails we used Chanel’s classic “Le Vernis – Blue Satin”, a timeless night blue.

I wanted to create an eye that would read through a veil, that’s why I used “Illusion d’Ombre in Mirifique”, a pitch black with starlight sparkles. Eyes that see in the dark and nails the shade of night. And a soft touch of “Rouge Allure Velvet – La Furtive”, perfect for stealing kisses.

–Peter Philips on creating the Chanel Makeup Looks for the Fall-Winter 2011/2012 Haute Couture Show

The makeup used in the Haute Couture show – though behind a veil – made a statement.  The dark smokey eyes are lovely, especially as they play off of the darkness of the set and the black sparkle of the floors.  Even with the lace veils you could see there was some serious makeup going on under the lace.  I love that Philips used Blue Satin – one of my favorite nail colors, it’s perfect to evoke the midnight feel of the show.

Here are the products Peter Philips use to create the looks:


The Complexion
VITALUMIÈRE AQUA Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15
POUDRE UNIVERSELLE LIBRE  Natural Finish Loose Powder
ECLAT LUMIÈRE Highlighting Face Pen

The Eyes

Vanessa Paradis Daydreams

I knew Vanessa Paradis was a singer but I didn’t realize that she sang the song in the Rouge Coco commercial that she starred in. Here’s a video of her recording Daydream – the song featured in the commercial – and the commercial itself as a reminder :)

Strike A Pose, There’s Nothing To It

chanel strike a pose
Peter Philips strikes again! Not only is he a makeup magician but he seems to have a knack for creating makeup videos. In his latest video, Strike A Pose, Philips updates iconic Chanel images from old Chanel ad campaigns and juxtaposes them with the ads themselves – creating a collage of timeless beauty. It’s a beautiful video and every time I watch it I can’t help but wonder how the model was able to line up the tears so seamlessly.

Chanel Fall-Winter 2011/12 Makeup: Illusions d’Ombre de Chanel

Illusions d'Ombre de Chanel Fall 2011 Makeup

Illusions d'Ombre de Chanel Fall 2011 Makeup

The Chanel Fall-Winter 2011-12 makeup collection called Illusions d’Ombre de Chanel has started surfacing online and it looks lovely. It’s a great match for the dark, smoldering Fall-Winter 2011/12 ready-to-wear collection. The lips and cheeks are pretty neutrals while the eyeshadows are smokey and rich. We’ve seen Le Vernis courtesy of nail artist extraordinaire Sophy Robson and they shimmer like the minerals they are named after. The most exciting part of the collection are individual eyeshadow pots; the eyeshadows have a creamy texture and the colors are gorgeous. They seem like they would look nice on any eye color and I especially love Mirifique (black), Illusoire (eggplant) and Epatant (olive green).

Kirsten Dunst in Chanel Couture & Chanel Beauté

kirsten dunst in chanel couture cannes film festivalIt seems Kirsten Dunst was having a Chanel moment in Cannes from the Chanel couture gown she wore to the amfAR Gala to the Chanel couture gown she wore to accept the award for Best Actress for her role in Melancholia.  I love the dress that Dunst wore to the award ceremony, very feminine and detailed.  I’m sure upon closer inspection the amount of handwork that is in the bodice is baffling.  I also love the tiered flow-y bottom of the dress – there’s a hint of sheerness on the bottom but I don’t mind it because it starts so low.  Her makeup for the award ceremony and for the premiere of Melancholia was Chanel Beauté and she looked lovely. Details on how to get the looks are below.

Film Festival Awards:
To complement the award-winning actress’s CHANEL Haute Couture strapless dress, Sabrina created Kirsten’s gorgeous, glowing face using CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige Rosé Tendre and highlighting her cheeks with CHANEL Powder Blush in Rose Écrin (available July 2011), Kirsten’s eyes were adorned with Illusion D’Ombre de Chanel Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Epatant (available July 2011) and her lashes were lengthened with CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir. Sabrina finished the look with CHANEL Rouge Allure Lipstick in Passion.

Melancholia Premiere:
For Kirsten’s first red carpet appearance at Cannes, Sabrina used CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige Rosé Tendre to highlight her complexion and CHANEL Powder Blush in Rose Écrin (available July 2011) on the cheeks. Sabrina used Illusion D’Ombre de Chanel Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Emerveillé (available July 2011) on the eyelids to create a neutral shimmer, and Precision Eye Definer in Khaki Platine (available July 2011) to define the eyes. To complete the look she used CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir on the eyelashes and applied CHANEL Rouge Allure Lipstick in Enthusiast to the lips.

A few days ago Chanel released a new Rouge Coco Shine shade named Royallieu and it is available exclusively on Chanel.com.  The soft pink shade is named after Chateau de Royallieu, Étienne Balsan’s estate where Coco Chanel stayed with him as his lover.  Her stay at Chateau de Royallieu was her introduction to society and she began making hats during her stay there.  She also met the love of her life, Boy Capel at Chateau de Royallieu.  With so many romantic connotations, it’s the perfect color to wear to get ready for some summer lovin’.  Rouge Coco Shine Royallieu retails for $32 and is available only online at Chanel.com.
