Chanel Summer 2011 Makeup: Les Fleurs D’Ete

les fleurs d ete de chanel summer 2011 makeup collection

For the Summer 2011 makeup palette, Peter Philips was inspired by summer flowers. The pretty pinks, peaches and soft yellows look like they will go beautifully with a healthy tan. Back in November we gave you a sneak peek of Mimosa, the newest Chanel color that will surely cause a commotion. Here, we can see the three new colors. They’re all pretty but Mimosa is by far the most unique. It’s making me want to lay poolside and sip one… just a few more months! Here’s a breakdown of all the new colors…

Chanel Links: 02.24.11

Chanel introduces a trio of favorite colors that will keep you looking peachy keen called “Endless Summer” – the perfect colors to complement your tan (which of course, Coco made fashionable).


I was a history major so I love history – add fashion to the mix and we have a winner! Chanel News gave us the inside scoop on the history of the decor of the Spring 2011 Haute Couture show.


More history! This time, Chanel News gives us some info on the architectural history of iconic 31 Rue Cambon. It turns out Coco was a real estate mogul too!


Chanel had a site devoted to Valentine’s Day – it’s still up and definitely worth checking out. I NEED the double lion head bangle bracelet!

Chanel News just posted a video that shows the details of some of the pieces from the Spring 2011 Haute Couture collection.  I wish I could see all of the pieces close up – many of them look simple from afar but upon closer examination you see all of the intricacies – just gorgeous!

Gwyneth Paltrow at the 2011 Grammy Awards in Chanel Beauté


Gwyneth Paltrow rocked out on stage with Cee Lo Green in his performance of Forget You. While Cee Lo channeled the Fraggles/Muppets Gwyneth kept it classy in a black jumpsuit but she was a team player and wore some neon pink feathered earrings. Her makeup was done by Chanel Beauté and here’s the word on how to get the look straight from Chanel …

CHANEL Celebrity Makeup Artist Angela Levin worked with Gwyneth Paltrow at The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards Show on Sunday, February 13th. Please see Angela’s tips below on how to get Gwyneth’s chic, sexy rock and roll redcarpet look.

“I wanted sexy rock chic for Gwyneth! After applying a light layer of CHANEL Hydramax + Active Moisture Cream and waiting about ten minutes for it to absorb, I applied CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup in BR20 (available in March). For the eyes I chose CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Cinnamon, smoking the eyes, and also on the lower lash line. And of course tons and tons of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir! For concealer I used CHANEL Lift Lumière Smoothing and Rejuvinating Concealer in Rose Lumière in a half moon shape blending almost to the hair line and into the temples next to eye brow. I used round motions to create a soft sexy look. For her cheeks, I used the cream cheek colour in the CHANEL Multi-Use Makeup Palette in Paris- L.A, applying with a tapping motion using my fingers. Finally, her lips CHANEL Ultra-Wear Lip Colour in Rose Agate.”

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.

Chanel Spring 2011 Haute Couture Beauté

Last week Chanel presented its Spring 2011 Haute Couture collection.
