Chanel has released a new video ad for the striking mascara Le Volume de Chanel. It’s refreshing to see a mascara ad that isn’t using false lashes – you can actually see how well the product works. Bravo!

Today pictures of Giselle in what looks like a Chanel ad surfaced online. I can’t say whether they are real or not, but Marie Claire Brazil has posted images of Giselle Bündchen shot by Mario Testino.
The next rumor that’s been swirling online is that Rihanna may have shot a Chanel campaign. The rumors surfaced after Rihanna posted two photos on Instagram. One photo is a close up and a “sneak peek” of a secret ad campaign that she shot with Mert Alas. The second photo shows her wearing a Chanel necklace and captioned the photo “that’s a #wrap on my shoot for my new #topsecret add campaign!!! #2013″.
People have been speculating that it’s a Chanel shoot because of the necklace she’s wearing but I don’t find that conclusive. Since the shoot was a “wrap” she could have put the necklace on afterward – she has been wearing a lot of Chanel (especially vintage Chanel) lately. Either way, she looks gorgeous in the photo and I can’t wait to see what campaign it is.
If it is a Chanel campaign I wonder what it’s for. I wonder if it’s for one of the bag collections because Chanel has used musicians for the past Coco Cocoon ad campaigns like Lily Allen and Vanessa Paradis. We’ll have to wait and see!

Chanel celebrity makeup artists and manicurists were on hand in Hollywood last night to apply makeup to Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Naomi Watts, Michelle Dockery, Nicole Kidman, January Jones, Kerry Washington and Jessica Paré. Here are the products they used to achieve the looks…
Makeup by Chanel Celebrity makeup artist Kate Lee
INSPIRATION: Annie wore a black embellished gown. The look was elegant, but approachable. Our intention was for her to appear casually chic, so I decided to go with a beautiful deep rose lip. Our vision really came together: the beautiful gown, her Judy Garland inspired hair and her classical make up. I hope this look will allure and inspire all you beauty buffs out there to be creative, fearless and experimental with your own hair and makeup.
SKINCARE: I love a blank canvas, part of the process of creating a great look and making it stay lies in the preparation of the skin. Everyone’s skin is different, but my go-to product for hydration of any skin texture is always CHANEL Hydra Beauty Serum. This product feels and smells incredible and delivers just the right amount of hydration without leaving any residue. Primers are not always necessary, but for red carpet season I turn to Laura Mercier’s oil free primer to provide me with a great, velvety, even texture which helps with my application but also keeps the look fresh throughout the event.
FOUNDATION: Annie has the most exquisite alabaster complexion; her new gamine crop really highlights the texture and quality of her skin. I love to experiment with different formulations of foundation when I am blessed with such a perfect canvas. On this occasion I chose CHANEL Perfection Lumière Long-Wear Flawless Fluid Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15. This foundation is opaque and gives a velvety effect.
BLUSH: The definition of the cheeks and cheekbones are synergistically a part of the complexion, and I always regard them as part of my base. For this look I wanted to create a tactile effect and to bring a beautiful apricot hue to the apples of the cheeks to offset the lip colour. I used Jouer Mineral powder blush in Peach Bouquet.
EYES: On the eyes, I used CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Fauve to trace the socket and elongate the eye. Lashes were curled and given a generous coat of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir. I added a few extra lashes. The lid and brow bone were nude with a touch of light concealer.
LIPS: The look was all about the lip. Annie has full, beautifully balanced lips. They lend themselves equally well to being bright and defined, or more muted and subdued. This evening we decided to go for a colour that was a more intense version of her natural colour. CHANEL Rouge Coco Hydrating Crème Lip Colour in Taffetas Rose is a perfect deep rose/ raspberry shade that is just a few shades more intense than her lips at their reddest.
Makeup by Chanel Celebrity makeup artist Mai Quynh
INSPIRATION: I wanted Jessica to look graceful, but modern. Jessica’s natural beauty shines through while keeping the focal point on her eyes. My inspiration came from the forest green chiffon dress. Its couture with a bad-girl edge echoes the regal essence of the overall look.
SKINCARE: Her skin was given a good dose of hydration with CHANEL Hydra Beauty Serum followed by CHANEL Sublimage Essential Regenerating Fluid and CHANEL Sublimage La Crème Yeux.
FOUNDATION: I used a combination of CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF15 on the high planes of the face and added a little CHANEL Perfection Lumière Long-Wear Flawless Fluid Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 through the center of the face to give a silky complexion.
BLUSH: On the apples of her cheeks, I lightly dusted CHANEL Powder Blush in Star Dust. I then added Poudre Signée de Chanel Illuminating Powder above the cheekbones and a tiny amount on the bridge of the nose to add dimension and illumination.
EYES: The eyes were the big focus of this look! Using CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Mystic Eyes, I added depth to Jessica’s eye shape by using the bronze shade on her entire lid, and blended it very softly upwards and outwards. On the inner lid, I mixed the light beige and soft pink shades and applied it as a highlighter to the inner eye. Then, I smudged the dark chocolate shade along her top and bottom lash line, blending this color into the bronze shadow. I rimmed her eyes with CHANEL Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Espresso.
MASCARA: I curled the lashes and added two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir to her top and bottom lashes. I added individual lashes to finish the look.
LIPS: I mixed CHANEL Rouge Coco Hydrating Crème Lip Colour in Chalys and CHANEL Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Gracile to customize the perfect shade to go with her eyes.
Makeup by Chanel Celebrity makeup artist Matthew Vanleeuwen
INSPIRATION: My inspiration for Kerry’s SAG look was a feeling of modern elegance.
SKINCARE: I prepared her skin by applying CHANEL Sublimage Essential Regenerating Fluid to the skin and neck and CHANEL Sublimage La Crème Yeux to the eye area.
FOUNDATION: For the skin, I smoothed on CHANEL Perfection Lumière Long-Wear Flawless Fluid Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in Beige Ambre. It was a perfect match!
BLUSH: On the cheeks, I applied CHANEL Powder Blush in Malice and dusted Route des Indies de Chanel Illuminating Powder With Shimmer high on the cheekbone for emphasis.
EYES: Using CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Vanités, I applied deep plum in the crease and then pressed the palest silvery lilac shade into the lash line. I smudged a little plum under the eye for emphasis. Next I lined the top lid with CHANEL Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Noir Intense. I lined the lower inner rim of the eyelid in CHANEL Le Crayon Khôl Intense Eye Pencil in Noir.
MASCARA: I applied Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in Noir.
LIPS: Finally I lined and filled the lips with CHANEL Precision Lip Definer in Mordoré and finished with
CHANEL Glossmier in Sweet Beige.
Makeup by Chanel Celebrity makeup artist Rachel Goodwin
INSPIRATION: I was inspired by the tuxedo style of January’s dress and I wanted her makeup to be classic and graphic. I chose a vivid red lip, bold brows and sculpted cheekbones. To me, there’s nothing more timeless than the combination of black, white and red.
SKINCARE: I prepped her skin by dabbing a bit of CHANEL Sublimage Essential Regenerating Fluid around the perimeter of her face and then brushed Sunday Riley Effortless Breathable Tinted Primer onto the center.
FOUNDATION: I perfected her skin with CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 and applied it with a damp beauty blender sponge. I placed Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer just where I needed extra coverage.
BLUSH: I defined her cheekbones with Poudre Signée de Chanel Illuminating Powder placing it just under her cheekbones and blending upward with an angled blush brush.
EYES: I blended Laura Mercier Sateen eyeshadow in Stellar onto her arches and lids them placed Shisiedo Shimmering cream color in Leather under her brow bone and under the eye.
MASCARA: I used two coats of Le Volume de Chanel mascara in Noir
LIPS: For her lips, I used CHANEL Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Incandescente, a powerful
red with a warm undertone.
Makeup by Chanel Celebrity makeup artist Jordan Long
INSPIRATION: We wanted to do something modern and architectural with a nod to classic Hollywood glamour.
SKINCARE: CHANEL Hydra Beauty Serum and Le Blanc de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Base.
FOUNDATION: I used CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 and applied it with the foundation brush. Michelle loves glowing, dewy skin, and because her skin is flawless I only have to use a little amount. I then used a tiny bit of CHANEL Correcteur Perfection Long-Lasting Concealer under the eyes and around the nose.
BLUSH: For Michelle’s cheeks, I lightly dusted CHANEL Powder Blush in Frivole, keeping it concentrated at the apples. I then finished with Poudre Signée de Chanel Illuminating Powder to highlight her cheekbones, and a bit down her nose and above the bow of her lip to give her that extra radiance!
EYES: We were really set on doing a smoky eye this time, but we decided to give it a twist by using the gorgeous deep green in CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Lilium. With a domed eyeshadow brush, I applied the green shade all across her lid and blended it up . I also smudged it underneath the lower lashes. I then took the black matte shadow in CHANEL Eyeshadow Duo in Gris-Subtil and intensified the smoke on the outer corners. To add a little sparkle right at the lashline, I smudged a bit of CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Illusoire.
MASCARA: I finished with three coats of Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in Noir on the upper
and lower lashes.
LIPS: We smudged the gorgeous CHANEL Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in
L’Exquise and used it almost like a stain, with no liner.
Makeup by Chanel Celebrity makeup artist Angela Levin
INSPIRATION: For the SAGs and Nicole, my inspiration was a sexy, stormy sky! The dress was a gorgeous midnight blue. Just stunning! I loved the contrast between her skin and the dress.
SKINCARE: I started with a thin layer of CHANEL Sublimage La Crème Texture Supreme, as I always do, on face and neck. I then placed a tissue on her face and gently tapped to lift the excess moisture from the skin.
FOUNDATION: I applied CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 with a foundation brush to her face and neck, and added CHANEL Natural Finish Pressed Powder in Translucent 1 to the eyelids and T-zone.
BLUSH: I added CHANEL Powder Blush in Star Dust, a pale pink blush to her cheeks.
EYES: For her eyes I chose the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Lagoons; it has four beautiful shades of blue that were perfect for this look. Normally, I use a round motion as I apply the eye shadows, but this time I used straight strokes from the inner part of the eye going out to create a sexy eye look. Starting in the inner corner, I used the palest blue shade in the palette. I then applied the middle blue shade all over the eye to the crease and then blended the blue-grey shade to the corners of the eye. Lastly, I used the darkest blue shade to outline the eyes.
EYELINER: I used the CHANEL Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Ebene and blended it with the dark blue shadow to line the eye.
MASCARA: I curled the lashes and applied three coats of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir.
LIPS: I finished the look with a thin layer of CHANEL Rouge Coco Baume, blotting the lips with a tissue to set the moisture, and then added CHANEL Glossimer in Amour for a pop of color.
Makeup by Chanel Celebrity makeup artist Patti Dubroff
INSPIRATION: Naomi chose a platinum with silver embroidered overlay dress to wear to the SAG Awards. The soft color and delicate embroidery lent itself to a strong lip statement. We decided on an intense, matte, raspberry lip as the focal point. The eyes and skin were kept very soft with a soft flash of silver on the lid.
SKINCARE: To prepare Naomi’s skin for foundation, I used CHANEL Hydra Beauty Serum to plump the skin with hyaluronic acid. This gives nourishment to the skin.
FOUNDATION: With a foundation brush, I applied CHANEL Vitalumière Moisture-Rich Radiance Sunscreen Fluid Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 starting at the center of face and working toward the perimeter where needed only. The eye area is brightened using CHANEL Lift Lumière Smoothing and Rejuvenating Eye Contour Concealer.
BLUSH: Blush was kept very minimal to allow the lip color to take focus. I dusted a small amount of CHANEL Powder Blush in Star Dust on the tops of cheekbones to add a touch of sheen.
EYES: I kept the eyes minimal. I first used CHANEL Lift Lumière Smoothing and Rejuvenating Eye Contour Concealer on the lids to even the tone of lid. I then dusted CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Lily. On the center of lid, I added a flash of silver highlight with CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Infini. The inner rim was lined with CHANEL Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Rose Platine to brighten the under eye whites of eyes.
MASCARA: I curled the lashes and then applied Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in Noir on upper lashes only.
LIPS: I used CHANEL Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in La Sensuelle with CHANEL Precision Lip Definer in Rouge Profond. I applied a stain of the lipstick first and then used a delicate touch of the lip pencil to sharpen edges with another coat of this vivid raspberry lipstick. The lip is super rich in color and very lush and matte.
NAILS: CHANEL Le Vernis Nail Colour in Black Pearl. We choose this color for hands and feet. The slight silver-teal shimmer of this black nail shade was a perfect complement to the emerald ring.
Nails by Chanel Manicurist Christina Aviles
INSPIRATION: We were inspired by her red dress, so we chose a soft nail color that wouldn’t compete with her stunning gown, but complemented her fair and glowing skin.
COLORS: CHANEL Le Vernis Nail Colour in Tendresse.
RED CARPET NAIL TRICK: Double up on top coat to ensure a high gloss shine!

Here’s the newest Lisa Eldridge video showing us how to apply Chanel’s Spring 2013 makeup collection Printemps Précieux de CHANEL. As always, she makes it looks so easy and effortless. What a pretty look. I would never think to pair the lip and nail color she chose but they really work well together. What do you think? What products from this collection are you buying?
January 14, 2013
Chanel not only was present at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards in the way of Haute Couture but Chanel Beauté cosmetics graced the lovely faces of Anne Hathaway, Sienna Miller, Jodie Foster, Naomi Watts, Michelle Dockery, Emily Mortimer and Alicia Vikander. See the images below for beauty tips and how to get the looks from the Chanel celebrity makeup artists Rachel Goodwin, Vanessa Scali, Pati Dubroff, Jordan B. Long and Kate Lee.
Anne Hathaway Chanel Makeup by Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Kate Lee
INSPIRATION: Annie wore an ice-white beaded gown by CHANEL with CHANEL Fine Jewelry! The look was elegant, but still youthful and light. I felt that the makeup should mirror this, and wanted Annie to appear as if lit from within, so I concentrated on making the complexion as tactile as possible, and added a dash of blue pink to the lips as a focal point.
SKINCARE: CHANEL Hydra Beauty Serum followed by CHANEL Base Lumière Illuminating Makeup Base.
FOUNDATION: I used CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 to keep the skin looking radiant. I added a small amount of CHANEL Perfection Lumière Long- Wear Flawless Fluid Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 only where needed.
BLUSH: On the cheekbones, I used a light sweeping touch of Poudre Signée de Chanel Illuminating Powder to illuminate the bone structure; I also followed this along the clavicle and over the shoulder blades. On the apple of the cheek, I used a pale peach blush to contrast the lip color.
EYES: I defined Annie’s eye socket with CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Fauve which is a delicious grey/lilac shade. I ran the color along the base of the lower lashes to finish the look.
MASCARA: Lashes were curled and given a coat of CHANEL Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir. I then added a selection of lashes for a customized shape.
LIPS: Lips were CHANEL Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Sedusicante, the perfect pink for a perfect pout.
Anne Hathaway Nails by Celebrity Manicurist Alicia Torello
INSPIRATION: We started with one idea based off the dress and then it just kept evolving. Anne usually knows what she wants and has fantastic taste.
RED CARPET NAIL TRICK: A great top coat for super shine. Lots of lotion and cuticle oil, hydration is the most important thing!
Sienna Miller Chanel Makeup by Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Pati Dubroff
INSPIRATION: I wanted the makeup to look very fresh, young and effortless. The dress has a very airy floral vibe so the makeup feels like a summer day.
SKINCARE: CHANEL Sublimage La Crème Texture Suprême and CHANEL Base Lumière Illuminating Makeup Base to give skin a luminous glow.
FOUNDATION: CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in Beige 40. I used Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base to contour the cheekbones and to add a soft summer bronzy glow.
EYES: I first used a rich navy blue pencil, CHANEL Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Marine, at the deepest base of lashes. I then smudged a shimmering shade, CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Graphite, along the lash line. To set the liner, I used CHANEL Soft Touch Eye Shadow in Furtif. I then added a dash of CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Riviere, a soft shimmering seafoam green on the center of lid. Then a soft touch of CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Fantasme on the inner corner of eyes for a pop of shimmering white light.
MASCARA: I used a hefty dose of Le Volume de Chanel in Noir on the top lashes only.
LIPS: I created a soft and sweet petal pink using CHANEL Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Gracile.
Naomi Watts Chanel Makeup by Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Pati Dubroff
INSPIRATION: Naomi is one of those actresses who evoke a timeless, classic elegance. I kept thinking Carole Lombard and the polish of the 30′s screen sirens. She was sexy and sultry, and that is how I see Naomi.
SKINCARE: Skin was prepped with Le Blanc De Chanel Sheer Illuminating Base.
FOUNDATION: CHANEL Vitalumière Moisture-Rich Radiance Sunscreen Fluid Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in 20 Clair and CHANEL Lift Lumière Smoothing and Rejuvenating Eye Contour Concealer in 20 Rose Lumière around the eye area.
BLUSH: A very soft swipe of CHANEL Powder Blush in Rose Petale high on the apples of the cheeks for a very romantic feel. On the very tops of cheekbones, I applied a soft swipe of Poudre Signée de Chanel Illuminating Powder to create a pearl-like finish.
EYES: I defined the upper and lower lashline and inner rims with CHANEL Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Gris. The eye socket and lash lines were contoured with the deep plum tone from CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Raffinement. I left the center open to add a flash of pewter shine with CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eye Shadow in Epatant. I then added a bit more flash at the upper and lower center lash lines with CHANEL Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Rose Platine.
MASCARA: A coat of mascara upper lash with Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in Noir and then a bordeaux coat of CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Rouge Noir on the lower lashes.
LIPS: I applied CHANEL Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Determinee, a plum tone with a lip brush and then pressed the color into the lip with my finger to make it look stained and softened.
Jodie Foster Chanel Makeup by Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Rachel Goodwin
INSPIRATION: Jodie’s Golden Globes make up was meant to be sultry and super glamorous. When I saw the incredible structure of her navy metallic gown I knew Gunmetal eyes and soft peach lips and cheeks would be the perfect compliment. She was receiving the prestigious Cecil B De Mille Life Time Achievement Award and I wanted her to feel as beautiful as possible for such a big moment.
SKINCARE: I began by prepping her skin with CHANEL Sublimage L’Essence Essential Revitalizing Concentrate and let it absorb in to the skin.
FOUNDATION: I applied a thin layer of CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 with a foundation brush buffing off any excess. I sculpted her cheeks with Soleil Tan de Chanel Luminous Bronzing powder in Sable Beige.
EYES: I traced her lash line with CHANEL Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Marine, blending until there was a soft diffused line. I went over the navy liner with CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Black Star using an angled brush blending upward onto her crease and lids creating an intense smoky effect.
MASCARA: I coated her lashes with Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in Noir and added a few individual lashes at the ends for even more amped up lashes.
LIPS: Her lips were a combination of CHANEL Precision Lip Definer in Natural and CHANEL Rouge Allure Pure Shine Intense Colour Long Wear Lip Gloss in Mervielle.
Emily Mortimer Chanel Makeup by Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Rachel Goodwin
INSPIRATION: I wanted Emily’s makeup to have a laid back, sexy feel. I was inspired by chic French girls like Charlotte Gainsbourg and Lou Doillon who always seem to strike that perfect balance and never look too done.
FOUNDATION: I created soft matte skin with CHANEL Perfection Lumière Long-Wear Flawless Fluid Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 in Beige 10.
EYES: The main focus of the look was her eyes so I began by lining her lash line with CHANEL Eyeshadow Duo in Noir- Ivoire using just the black shadow for a smoky effect. I softened the black by placing a white shimmering cream shadow on the inner eye and on to her eyelid creating a soft grey shimmer.
MASCARA: I used two coats of Le Volume de Chanel mascara in Noir on her lashes.
LIPS: On her lips, I used CHANEL Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Fantasque, a soft nude that would add just enough color for her lips not to disappear and then finished by dabbing a bit on her cheeks.
Michelle Dockery Chanel Makeup by Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Jordan B. Long
INSPIRATION: Modern and sexy with Old Hollywood Glamour. Michelle is in period 60 percent of the time so to try something new we wanted to do a smoky eye, some high fashion and some tousled hair to highlight her new cut.
SKINCARE: I started with CHANEL Hydra Beauty Serum and followed with Le Blanc de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Base all over the face with a foundation brush.
FOUNDATION: I lightly stippled CHANEL Vitalumière Moisture-Rich Radiance Sunscreen Fluid Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15. Michele’s skin is so flawless – so we love to let that show through.
BLUSH: After a light dusting of translucent powder, I applied CHANEL Powder Blush in Frivole to the apples o her cheeks. Michelle loves her skin to show through and I love to use highlighters and to keep her complexion dewy, so the Poudre Signée de Chanel Illuminating Powder was perfect on her cheekbones, down her nose and above her lip and her chin for brightening.
EYES: We wanted to do a smoky eye. Michelle’s character in Downton Abbey wears next to nothing, so we decided early on to go for it. Since she’s wearing white and gold with burgundy shoes we wanted something warm. I used CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Raffinement. I applied the dark burgundy brown all over the lid. Then blending up towards the browbone, but leaving some space. I then added CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Apparence at the center, blending the colors together. I love burgundy and gold. Michelle has a lot of reddish tones in the color of her eyes so we wanted to highlight that. We finished with a very fine line on upper lash line of CHANEL Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Noir Intense.
MASCARA: I used three coats of Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in Noir. We also added extra coats on Michelle’s extra-long gorgeous lower lashes for extreme fluttery lashes.
LIPS: We wanted a very natural, nudish glossy lip. Michelle has a lot of pigment in her lips naturally, so against her pale gorgeous milky skin doing too nude doesn’t work, so we used a lipstick with a slight color: CHANEL Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Sedusicante with no liner and then with a gold gloss, CHANEL Rouge Allure Pure Shine Intense Colour Long Wear Lip Gloss in Attirance.
Alicia Vikander Chanel Makeup by Chanel Celebrity Makeup Artist Vanessa Scali
INSPIRATION: Alicia wore a gorgeous CHANEL gown. I was inspired by her natural beauty and liked the contrast of an effortless, fresh face against her textured, intricate gown.
SKINCARE: CHANEL Hydra Beauty Serum followed by CHANEL Sublimage Essential Regenerating Fluid and CHANEL Sublimage La Crème Yeux. This combination prepares the skin with penetrating hydration and leaves a clean finish on the skin.
FOUNDATION: I applied CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 sparingly. Alicia has gorgeous skin so there is no need to hide it under foundation.
BLUSH: CHANEL Powder Blush in Rose Initiale concentrated on the apples of the cheeks blending outward and upward toward the cheekbones. For a touch of shimmer, I used Poudre Signée de Chanel Illuminating Powder high on the cheekbones and brow bones.
EYES: Using CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Rives, I blended the pale gold shade from lash line to just past the natural crease. To lengthen and add depth, I used the mid-brown shade and concentrated on the outer corners of the eye and extended past the natural eye line. I blended a touch of CHANEL Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Fantasme on the inner corner and into the middle of the lid. This pops a little light on this area and opens the eyes.
EYELINER: To define and elongate the lash line, I lined her eyes (upper lid only) with CHANEL Precision Eyeliner in Brun Intense. I used the tip of the CHANEL Contour Shadow Brush #14 to smudge it into the lash line. This gives you the definition in a soft, subtle way.
MASCARA: A few generous coats of CHANEL Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Noir. LIPS: CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine in Bel-Ami gave her lips a beautiful, just-bitten look.

The Chanel Spring 2103 was one of my favorite recent collections. There are a few accessories that I have on my wishlist, but in the mean time, we can get a glimpse of what’s to come with the makeup collection.
Named for the precious beauty of Spring, the new colour collection PRINTEMPS PRÉCIEUX DE CHANEL celebrates Gabrielle Chanel’s codes of simplicity and sophistication. Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup Peter Philips channels the season’s splendor with a collection of contrasts. Elegant neutrals complement soft-to-sultry pinks on face and lips, while nails are adorned with vivid polish.
The Chanel Spring 2013 makeup collection Printemps Précieux de Chanel will be available at CHANEL.com, CHANEL Boutiques and department stores in January 201.

When I saw the models walking down the runway for the Chanel Métiers d’Art Paris-Édimbourg show, the first thought that came to mind was Mary Queen of Scots. When I learned that the presentation would take place at Linlithgow palace, the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots, I wanted to learn more about the tragic queen because I had a hunch that Karl Lagerfeld would be inspired by her. Looking at the red hair of many of the models and the upswept hair, it was hard not to see the similarities to the portraits of Mary Queen of Scots. The pale skin and the flushed cheeks evoked the cold weather of the Scottish Highlands and should be an easy look to replicate – especially in the fall and winter months. I also loved the winding braids that evoked Renaissance hairstyles.
Here’s a rundown of the products Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup used the following CHANEL products to create the runway beauty looks:
Skin prepared with HYDRA BEAUTY SERUM Hydration Protection Radiance
