Chanel Introduces Chanel Confidential

Since Peter Philips has taken the helm at Chanel as Global Makeup Creative Director it has been one non-stop stream of fabulous beauty products from Le Vernis Jade to the reintroduction of Coco Rouge lipsticks to Chanel robots.  Now, beginning at the end of February we’ll have a chance to see inside the makeup studio with the launch of CHANEL Confidential, a digital platform dedicated to CHANEL makeup showcasing Peter Philips’ universe and creations.

The animation of Chanel’s flying makeup robots will also be accessible on ChanelConfidential.com (which you actually already saw on Nowness and on LaChanelphile) but maybe there is an extended version on the Chanel site?  Also from the preview it looks like we’ll get makeup tips straight from the source.  Whatever the case, I will be there!

Jennifer Aniston in Chanel Beauté – Just Go With It Premiere

Jennifer Aniston wore Chanel Beauté at the NY premiere of her new movie Just Go With It.  She’s a natural, girl next door beauty and her cosmetics emphasized her beautiful features.

Makeup artist Angela Levin worked with Jennifer to create the look – here’s how – from the artist herself…

Jennifer looked like a golden California girl at the premiere of Just Go With It, a gorgeous contrast to the cold NYC night! Jen’s base was the new CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup, a soft, water-light formula with beautiful coverage. I used the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Kaska Beige on her eyes, applying the gold shade on the lid, and the lightest colour in the palette under the brow. I then blended the darker colours in the crease. I lined the bottom of the eyes with CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Noir, and to really make her blue eyes pop, I applied two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir, on both the top and bottom lashes. Her lips were CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine in Deauville, a delicate nude brown shade launching in April.

Limited Preview: Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in “Boy”

For the past year, Chanel has been bringing lipstick back and their latest release is “Boy” – very appropriate for Chanel since she was so inspired by men’s fashion. Here’s some more info on the release direct from the source…

Introducing ROUGE COCO SHINE, the newest lip collection from Creative Director for CHANEL Makeup Peter Philips. Fresh, sheer and luminous, ROUGE COCO SHINE provides beautiful, lasting, moisturizing shine in a water-light texture.

As an exclusive sneak preview, CHANEL will launch its star shade of ROUGE COCO SHINE, “Boy”, a sheer wash of natural rose, at select retailers and on CHANEL.com from February 10-14, 2011 only. It will not return to stores until the ROUGE COCO SHINE collection makes its official debut in April 2011.

There is no better time than Valentine’s Day to honor one of the greatest love stories of all time: Boy is the nickname of Arthur “Boy” Capel who was the love of Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel’s life, the partner and guardian angel of her first success stories. He encouraged Coco’s first venture into hat-making, loaning her money to open her first milliner’s studio in 1910 on rue Cambon in Paris. It was her romance with Boy Capel that inspired her to draw a masculine energy into her constantly evolving wardrobe. She borrowed his pajamas, jackets and straw boaters, and made them her own.

ROUGE COCO SHINE in Boy will be available exclusively on CHANEL.com, and at select CHANEL Boutiques and department stores from February 10-14, 2011.

Suggested retail price: $32.00

Chanel Spring 2011 Haute Couture Beauté

Last week Chanel presented its Spring 2011 Haute Couture collection. The beauty stand out was the angled eyeliner that not only was a nice contrast to the softness of the collection, but was also inspired by the black scarf in the painting of Chanel by Marie Laurencin that was interpreted by Karl Lagerfeld into a black ribbon choker.  The beauty was simple and pretty and was a nice complement to the collection.

Chanel Beauté at the 2011 SAG Awards

Last night at the SAG Awards, Dianna Agron wore vintage Chanel Haute Couture and four actresses wore Chanel Beauté makeup: Hilary Swank, Nicole Kidman, January Jones and Dianna Agron. Read below to find out each makeup artists inspiration and the tips/tools they used to achieve the gorgeous looks…


DIANNA AGRON/Makeup Artist Kate Lee

Beauty Inspiration:
“Dianna wore a vintage CHANEL Haute Couture dress in navy with a black lace overlay. I wanted to make Dianna appear fresh and up to date.”

Get the Look:
“I started by using CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Ambre to smoke put the inner lid, then gently blended it onto the upper and lower lash line. I worked over the top with CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Cinnamon, a dark burgundy shade. On the inner third of the lid I used grey shimmery tone from the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Enigma. I blended and melted the colours away from the socket. Lashes were curled and given one coat of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir-Brun. I finished off the eye by sculpting Dianna’s brows with Anastasia’s brow pencil and tinted brow gel. I then applied a layer of CHANEL Hydramax + Active Serum, followed by Nars oil free primer. I perfected the skin with CHANEL Vitalumiere Moisture-Rich Fluid Makeup. On the apple of the cheek I used CHANEL Powder Blush in Fresque which is a beautiful peach shade that shines pink and adds a really pretty dimension to the cheek. On the lips I used CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine.


JANUARY JONES/Makeup Artist Rachel Goodwin

Beauty Inspiration:
“I wanted January’s makeup to have a shimmering, candlelit quality to it. I was inspired by her black and gold lace dress which had a very decadent romantic feeling to it. I used different shades of gilded metallics and reflective textures on her eyes, cheeks, and lips”

Get the Look:
“I lined her eyes with CHANEL Precision Eye Definer in Gris Scintillant, a sparkling pewter pencil blending all the way into the crease along with a pale gold cream color to her upper lids and inner eyes. Her cheek and brow bones were brushed with Soleil Tan De CHANEL Moisturizing Bronzing Powder for soft radiant highlights. I finished with CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Lip Colour in Boy on her lips, a delicate luminous petal pink.”

NICOLE KIDMAN/Makeup Artist Angela Levin

Beauty Inspiration:
“Nicole’s dress at the 2011 SAG Awards reminded me of a sexy super movie star, gorgeousness and simplicity were my inspiration.”

Get the Look:
“First, I prepped Nicole’s skin with CHANEL Sublimage Concentrate. To complement her sexy black dress, I wanted her eyes and lips to stand out. I framed her eyes with a dark liner made from the deepest shade in the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Stupendous. To really make her eyes pop, I then applied three coats of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir. On her lips I used CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Lip Colour in Monte-Carlo.”

HILARY SWANK/Makeup Artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua & Manicurist Tom Bachik

Kara’s Beauty Inspiration:
“Hilary’s look was inspired by 70′s screen goddess, Ursula Andrews. She wore a Versace one shoulder soft champagne toned dress with caramel beaded detail.”

Get the Look:
“Hilary’s eyes were extended out with CHANEL Eye Definer in Brun-Cuivre blended along entire upper lashline and lower lashline, on outer half of eye and into crease to create the more graphic shape of the 60′s/70′s lined eye. I finished off the eyes with CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir and Ardell individual lashes on the outer half of eyes. Her cheeks are warmed up with a peachy tone, CHANEL Powder Blush in Fresque. I kept the lips softly lined with CHANEL Lip Definer in Beige, and moistened with CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Lip Colour in Canotier.”

Tom Bachik used CHANEL Nail Colour in Inattendu on Hilary’s nails.

Dianna Agron in Vintage Chanel Haute Couture at the SAG Awards

Finally some Chanel Haute Couture on the red carpet!  Glee actress, Dianna Agron shimmered in a navy and black vintage Chanel Haute Couture gown.  Navy and black is a dangerous combination but when done right it shines – literally.  I love the silhouette, the beaded lace overlay, the bow at the waist and the length.  Dianna Agron wears it well.  She paired her Chanel dress with Ferragamo shoes, Fred Leighton jewels and a Ferragamo clutch.  Nicely done!

Diane Kruger in Spring 2011 Chanel Haute Couture

Talk about clout! A mere two days after the Chanel Spring 2011 Haute Couture show, Diane Kruger was spotted wearing one of the looks to a charity dinner in Paris. She kept the look bare with a bracelet, a pair of black heels and a cute black clutch. The look on the runway was paired with those gorgeous pointy toe flats that all the models wore and large post earrings. Kruger even sported a similar hairstyle to the one on the runway. I like the idea of not wearing a necklace because the neckline of the dress is so pretty but I think she could have worn some earrings (if she wore some, then I can’t see them and maybe something more noticeable would have been nice).
