“Venus inspired, a sexy and naked look.”

Vivian first used CHANEL Sublimage Essential Revitalizing Concentrate to prepare Blake’s skin. Next, she lightly swiped CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 in Beige-Désert across her face and added Guerlain Terracotta Concealer 02.

On the apples of her cheeks, Vivian used Stila Petunia Blush and lightly brushed CHANEL Moisturizing Bronzing Powder in Terre Ambre over her nose, forehead and jawline. She then layered Becca Mermaid Shimmering Eyeshadow and the gold shade from the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Spices on the eye and finished with CHANEL Inimitable Intense Mascara in Noir. The look was completed with CHANEL Rouge Allure Gloss in Genie and CHANEL Glossimer in Pensée.

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 2010-11 Cruise Show Beauty

Chanel 2010-11 Cruise Show Beauty

Effortless, natural beauty, relaxed girls who are enjoying their holidays. That was the main idea behind the look for this show.

- Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup

Each collection brings a new makeup collection by Peter Philips.  Since he’s been on board, each season he creates a frenzy with limited edition nail lacquer colors and the Cruise 2010-2011 collection will no doubt do the same.  The laid back collection was paired with equally easy going hair and makeup.  The cosmetics were used to create natural sun-kissed looks and the nails featured Jade Rose and a new sky blue (yet to be released name) shade.  I’m guessing the blue was inspired by the azure sky and/or sea of St. Tropez.  Once we find out the name, the only question will be how much the new shade will sell for on ebay!

For the show in Saint-Tropez, Peter used the following CHANEL products to create the runway beauty looks that accompanied the Amber brown, absinthe and mint green, sky and navy blue, and bright pink prints of the collection.

Skincare: Skin prepared with Hydramax + Active Nourishing Cream

Complexion: Vitalumière Aqua Foundation (available March 2011)
Poudre Universelle Libre Natural Finish Loose Powder
Éclat Lumière Highlighter Face Pen
Correcteur Perfection Long Lasting Concealer
Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base

The Eyes: Ombres Contraste Duo Eyeshadow Duo in Taupe-Délicat (available in September 2010)
Le Crayon Sourcils Precision Brow Definer
Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Black

Lips: Soin Tendre Lèvres Hydra-Treatment Lip Care SPF 15
New lipstick pencils (not yet available)

The Cheeks: Soleil Tan de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Fluid

The Nails: Le Vernis Nail Colour in Jade Rose and a new pastel baby blue shade (not yet available)
