Animating Chanel Video – Here Comes the Beauty Pack

Today, Nowness launched an animated Chanel video featuring the Chanel Beauté products as robots.  Think Transformers – but instead of cars, it’s Chanel cosmetics.  The animation is adorable and entertaining and exclusively on Nowness.

Here’s what they have to say about the film – as soon as I can get an embed link I will post it on the site…

A jet-propelled robot, a beaming sun god and an impish spider are not the likeliest of characters to embody the ultra-luxurious world of Chanel, but Peter Philips, the innovative mind behind them, has made his name pursuing the unexpected. Chanel’s Global Creative Director of Makeup took a break from conceptualizing cosmetic gold to don the animator’s cap for today’s short, a work inspired by a series of headdresses he crafted from beauty product packaging for a Vogue Paris shoot. Built from a trove of compacts, glosses, brushes and more, Philips’s characters embark on a journey that begins with a lipstick-powered automaton blasting through the clouds and ends on more familiar ground, with a model whose chic ensemble channels Mme Chanel herself. Philips came to the task with the requisite technical skills, having studied graphic design before attending Antwerp’s Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts. But he did concede on one creative point—the music. “If it were up to me it would have been disco,” he confesses.

Chanel Cruise 2010-2011 La Vernis Riva

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

A few months back we gave you a glimpse into the Chanel 2010-2011 Cruise Beauty collection and we mentioned a then-unnamed new blue nail color that we thought was inspired by the azure sky and St. Tropez sea.  Well, it seems like our hunch was right, the new shade, dubbed RIVA (presumable after the yacht-maker), is a beautiful shimmery ocean blue.  A limited edition color, Le Vernis Riva will be available in Chanel boutiques on December 1st.

Chanel 2011 Spring/Summer Ready to Wear Beauty

Karl Lagerfeld showed me a sketch he had drawn of a girl with smoky eyes, so it was clear that we would put the focus on the eyes for this show. The inspiration for the color came from the black-white-green French garden that was recreated in the Grand Palais, from the glow that we can find in black, grey and white pearls, and the enamel that Karl integrated into the costume jewelry. I created deep, dark smoky eyes on a luminous fresh face with tinted, dewy lips. Nails were graphic and strong, and a thin black line was drawn in the hair.


- Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup

The beauty as the Chanel Spring-Summer 2011 Ready-to-Wear show will no doubt be oft-imitated as it was lovely.  Dark charcoal smokey eyes was the highlight of a seductive look that featured an otherwise natural face.  Lips had a hint of blush that was just a few shades deeper than natural lip color.  Hair was straight and pulled back tight with center and side parts accentuated with a thin straight black line drawn with eyeliner.  The nails always steal the show and Black Pearl looks like it will be a color that will surely be duplicated by mass market nail polish companies.  I love the black gunmetal look of it and it really does look like the beautiful iridescent grey of Tahitian black pearls.  On their toes, models wore Pearl Drop, a white pearly color.  Though Pearl Drop is nice, Black Pearl is definitely on my wish list for spring.

Peter used the following CHANEL products to create the runway beauty looks:

Skin prepared with HYDRAMAX + ACTIVE Nourishing Cream for Dry Skin

The Complexion: PRO LUMIÈRE Professional Finish Makeup SPF 15
POUDRE UNIVERSELLE LIBRE Natural Finish Loose Powder
ÉCLAT LUMIÈRE Highlighter Face Pen
CORRECTEUR PERFECTION Long Lasting Concealer

LE CRAYON KHÔL Intense Eye Pencil in Noir

LE CRAYON SOURCILS (available August 2011)
LE SOURCIL DE CHANEL Perfect Brows
MASCARA INIMITABLE WATERPROOF in Noir

The Cheeks: JOUES CONTRASTE Powder Blush in Espiègle (Spring 2011 Makeup Collection, available January 2011)

The Lips: ROUGE COCO SHINE in Boy (available April 2011)

The Nails: LE VERNIS Nail Colour in Black Pearl on the hands (Spring 2011 Makeup Collection, available January 2011)

Emma Stone in Chanel Beauté at the Easy A Premiere

Chanel celebrity makeup artist Rachel Goodwin created the Beauté look for Emma Stone for the Easy A premier.  The look was pretty, age appropriate and complimented Emma’s ensemble without being too matchy-matchy.  Read on for Rachel Goodwin’s inspiration in coming up with the makeup look and her tips on how to achieve the same look…

Inspiration:

“Emma’s make up was colour with sophistication, I played up her eyes with a bright shimmering teal pencil for a unexpected twist on a classic shape.”

How To:

“I used CHANEL Precision Eye Definer in Coffee Bean on the upper eye, and kept the rest of her make up simple and monochromatic to keep the focus about her eyes. On her skin I applied CHANEL Vitalumiere Satin Smoothing Fluid Makeup mixed with CHANEL Sublimage Fluid to make sure to still see her amazing freckles. I then defined her cheekbones with Soleil Tan de CHANEL Bronzing Makeup Base instead of blush, for warm glowing cheeks. On her lips I blended CHANEL Rouge Allure Lip Colour in Instinctive with CHANEL Hydramax + Active Lip Care.”

The full collection consists of: Soho de Chanel ($65.00), Quadra Eye Shadow in Stupendous, ($56.00), Rouge Coco in Stunning, ($30.00), Rouge Allure Laque in Stunt, ($32.00), Glossimer in Star, ($27.00), Le Vernis in Steel, ($23.00), Le Vernis in Strong, ($23.00).  Chanel’s Soho Story collection will be available on chanel.com on September 7th and September 10th at the SoHo Boutique (Fashion’s Night Out).

Introducing Les Khakis de Chanel Nail Collection

Les Khakis de Chanel Nail Collection - Khaki Vert

Les Khakis de Chanel Nail Collection - Khaki Vert

I just got this in my inbox and almost jumped out of my chair.  Yes, I was once known to wear tips with airbrush designs and animal print nail art.  Now, I’m opting for neutral, short, natural nails and the new collection, Les Khakis de Chanel, is right up my alley.

The trio of Khakis was created by Chanel Global Creative Director of Makeup Peter Philips to celebrate Vogues’ Fashion’s Night Out.  Each Khaki has a hint of a color: Khaki Rose, Khaki Brun and Khaki Vert (rose, brown and green respectively). The colors can be worn alone or combined to create an urban camouflage.

I adore these colors and I cannot wait for them to release on September 10th.  I’ve been wanting an army green nail polish for quite some time and now I can finally have it – in fact, I will definitely be getting all 3! Les Khakis de Chanel nail collection retails for $25/bottle and will be available at Chanel boutiques, Chanel.com and select department stores (waiting to find out which ones -will update when I know!).

Chanel 2010-2011 Fall/Winter Haute Couture Beauty

Chanel 2010-2011 Fall/Winter Haute Couture Beauty

On Tuesday, Chanel had its 2010-2011 Fall/Winter Haute Couture show at the Grand Palais in Paris with an “8-ton, 40-foot-tall golden lion, [with] its paw perched on an enormous pearl” serving as the backdrop. (WWD). The beauty at the show was very classic and simple:  soft eyes and cheeks with a strong red lip with nails to match.  I think it’s clean look for fall where makeup can tend to get heavy.  The overall look is very light but warm enough for the cold months.

Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, used the following CHANEL products to create the runway beauty looks at the 2010-2011 Fall/Winter Haute Couture runway show in Paris:

Complexion:
PRO LUMIÈRE Professional Finish Makeup
POUDRE UNIVERSELLE LIBRE Natural Finish Loose Powder
ÉCLAT LUMIÈRE Highlighter Face Pen
CORRECTEUR PERFECTION Long Lasting Concealer

Eyes:
LES 4 OMBRES Quadra Eye Shadow in Enigma
LE SOURCIL DE CHANEL Perfect Brows

Lips:
LE CRAYON LÈVRES Precision Lip Definer in Carmin
ROUGE COCO Hydrating Crème Lip Colour in Rivoli

Nails:
LE VERNIS Nail Colour in Rouge Fatal (launching in October 2010)

Chanel Fall 2010 Beauty Collection

Chanel Fall 2010 Beauty Collection

A few months ago we showed you images from the Chanel Autumn/Winter 2010 Ready to Wear Collection and we’ve recently received info on the Fall 2010 Cosmetics collection.  You may recall the snowy theme of the Fall 2010 collection and Peter Philips worked closely with Karl Lagerfeld to come up with a beauty collection worthy of an ice princess.

The Fall 2010 collection features makeup that will give you a bold eye, while keeping cheeks and lips soft.  The nails steal the show again this season with a new must-have color called Paradoxal, a greyish-violet that will leave beauty mavens clamoring at makeup counters.

The collection will be available in stores in July 2010.

Les Pop-Up De Chanel Summer 2010 Makeup Collection

LES POP-UP DE CHANEL SUMMER 2010 MAKEUP COLLECTION

LES POP-UP DE CHANEL SUMMER 2010 MAKEUP COLLECTION

Coco Chanel made tans chic, and now Peter Philips had concocted a summer cosmetics collection that will make bronzed skin glow.  Inspired by Mademoiselle’s idyllic seaside vista, Les Pop-Up De Chanel, boasts a fresh crops of colors that will surely be the cult favorites of the summer.  Neon pink, sunny coral and brilliant turquoise are sure to complement any glowing tan (faux or not).

The limited edition collection features Soleil Tan de Chanel (Moisturizing Bronzing Powder), Rouge Allure (Luminous Satin Lip Color $32), Aqualumière (Sheer Color Lipshine SPF 15 $29), Aqualumière Gloss (High Shine Sheer Concentrate $27), Gloss Fluo de Chanel (Brilliant Lip Shine $27), Lèvres Scintillantes (Glossimer $27) and Le Vernis (Nail Colour $23).

I’m especially loving Le Vernis Nail Colour in Nouvelle Vague – it’s a bit reminiscent of the ever-popular Jade but it’s a bit more blue evoking the Mediterranean Sea. All of these colors looks great together and will take you from the beach to le club. Les Pop-Up De Chanel Summer 2010 Makeup Collection hits stores in May 2010. I know I can’t wait to get my Nouvelle Vague!
