Chanel’s dark outing at Le Grand Palais

Often a barometer of what’s to come in beauty circles, Peter Philips gave the models at Chanel’s Paris Fashion Week outing dark-eyed smoky stares and porcelain-perfect skin using a collection that’s set to fly out the doors once it lands Down Under in February 2011. Called Les Perles de Chanel make-up collection, it includes the sooty eye palette, Les 4 Ombres Regard Perlé, which Philips applied from models’ lash line to the brow bone, blending until he could blend no more. Poudre Lumiere Perlée, a fine finishing powder with mico shimmer particles gave skin its ethereal, rich texture, whilst Joues Contraste blush in Espiègle offered a fresh flush to cheeks. Last but by no means least, the show also debuted not one but two essential new nail shades: Le Vernis Black Pearl, a dark metallic charcoal with a hint of green worn on hands; and Le Vernis Pearl Drop, a creamy opaque white polish used on toes. Want both, NOW.
