Chanel N°19 Poudré Marks Coco Chanel’s Birthday

Chanel N°19 PoudréIn 1970, a new number entered the world of perfumery -  N°19. A date, but not just any date. The day that Gabrielle Chanel was born: August 19. A symbol that has imprinted elegance into the collective unconscious for over 40 years. Today, N°19 adds a new chapter to its story with the launch of N°19 Poudré …here’s a sneak peak into the world of this delectable fragrance:

Of all the world-renowned fragrances designed by Gabrielle Chanel, it was her last creation that she deemed her signature scent, named N°19 in reference to her August 19th birthdate. Initially bold and distinct, its floral-green notes were deep and complex making it a fragrance that was at once audacious and assertive.

Today, Jacques Polge’s new interpretation of the scent is creative and daring, boldly combining crisp green notes with powdery iris. The scent ends sublimely, trailing off to a delicate finish, and in keeping with the original composition, N°19 Poudré still has that same light, velvety, floating feeling. This deeply personal CHANEL fragrance remains true to its original wearer — resolutely modern, boldly sophisticated, but ultimately sensual and feminine.

N°19 Poudré will be available exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue and Chanel.com beginning today.

Anne Hathaway’s Chanel Beauty Look at the “One Day” Premiere

anne hathaway new york premiere one day

Last week Anne Hathaway looked stunning on the red carpet at the New York premiere of One Day.  Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Kate Lee works with Anne Hathaway regularly and she created this red carpet look.  Here’s how she created the look:

Annie wore a black Alexander McQueen resort collection gown with gold embroidery. The dress had a great structure to it, so we wanted to keep the look cute, young and casual.

For her face, I started with CHANEL Perfection Lumière Long Wear Makeup SPF 10 (launching October 2011), which I swept across Annie’s skin and perfected with a sponge.

On her eyes, I used Burberry sheer eye shadow in Antique Rose, which is a purplish brown that defined her socket line. I drew a thin line with CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Noir at the base of the lashes, top and bottom, and also inside of the waterline to give an ink pot effect. Then over the top, with a small natural fiber brush, I padded CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Eyeshadow in Mirifique which I took to the outer corner, blending a tiny amount under the eye to soften the shape.

I curled the lashes with the new CHANEL Precision Eyelash Curler and coated her lashes with a few strokes of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara…then a few extras were added for even more intensity! Her brows were slicked into place with Anastasia Brow Gel.

I defined her cheek bones with Kevin Aucoin shading colour in Medium and I finished her look by applying CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Fetiche on the lips.

CHANEL PRODUCTS USED:
Perfection Lumière Long Wear Makeup SPF 10 (launching October 2011), $55.00
Intense Eye Pencil in Noir, $29.00
Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Eyeshadow in Mirifique, $36.00
Precision Eyelash Curler, $34.00
Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir, $30.00
Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Fetiche, $32.00

Olivia Wilde in Chanel Beauté at “Cowboys & Aliens” Premiere

Olivia Wilde in Chanel Beauté at "Cowboys & Aliens" Premiere

Over the weekend, the summer blockbuster Cowboys & Aliens premiered. I have to admit, the juxtaposition of cowboys with aliens is like taking two genres and mashing them up together so I’m quite curious about this move. But I digress. The real news is that Olivia Wilde is starting in the film and she wore a Chanel Beauté look to the premiere created by Celebrity Makeup Artist Melanie Ingelssis. Her romantic look was beautiful – especially paired with Ms. Wilde’s lace gown. Here’s a breakdown from the makeup artist herself on how she created Olivia’s look – and how you can replicate it.

This weekend, Celebrity Makeup Artist Melanie Ingelssis created Olivia Wilde’s red carpet look for the premiere of one of summer’s hottest new movies, “Cowboys and Aliens”.  To off-set Olivia’s romantic gown and simple hair, Melanie and Olivia decided the focus of the beauty look would be on the eyes. Using CHANEL products, Melanie created a strong smoky eye balanced by soft, luminous skin.

To enhance Olivia’s gorgeous baby blues, Melanie began by using CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil to create the shape of the smoky eye, but kept it true to Olivia’s shape as opposed to taking it out too much. She then rimmed her entire eyes, including the inside of the waterline with a thick line, also using the soft, easy-to-use kohl pencil. She then used Illusion D’Ombre Eyeshadow in Mirifique, a new long-wearing, shimmering cream eyeshadow from CHANEL, all over Olivia’s lids to create a black base. She took the cream shadow up to the crease of Olivia’s eyes and underneath, blending it with the kohl pencil so there were no harsh lines.  With a black shadow, she redefined the outer and inner areas of the eyes that needed to be darker, creating a sexy and smudgy look. Finally, according to Melanie, “the trick to a beautiful smoky eye is blending, so I took a clean blending brush – with no color on it – and with one motion, I blended the upper and lower colors together.” To complete the look, Melanie curled Olivia’s lashes and added two coats of Inimitable Intense Mascara.

Melanie began prepping Olivia’s skin with CHANEL Sublimage Regenerating Fluid to give her complexion a radiant glow. She followed with Mat Lumière Makeup SPF 15 which she chose for the foundation’s long-lasting formula. She then highlighted Olivia’s face with CHANEL Sheer Illuminating Fluid.

PRODUCTS USED:

CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Eyeshadow in Mirifique, $36.00
CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Noir, $28.00
CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir, $30.00
CHANEL Sublimage Essential Regenerating Fluid, $295.00
CHANEL Mat Lumière Long Lasting Makeup SPF 15, $54.00
CHANEL Sheer Illuminating Fluid in Sunkissed, $48.00
All available at CHANEL department and specialty stores and chanel.com

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

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:

Skin prepared with HYDRAMAX+ ACTIVE NOURISHING CREAM

VITALUMIÈRE AQUA Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15
POUDRE UNIVERSELLE LIBRE  Natural Finish Loose Powder
