Love it: Chanel 2013-14 Fall-Winter Ready-to-Wear, by Peter Philips

One of my favourite makeup looks from Paris Fashion Week was naturally the one created for the Chanel 2013-14 Fall-Winter Ready-to-Wear Show by the incredibly talented Peter Philips. The man never disappoints!
“For this show, we wanted to create a beautiful natural look that focused on just one element of make-up so as to really make it stand out,” he said post-show, “so it’s all about the eyes.” He opted to go for a lovely natural semi matte skin, using Vitalumiere Aqua and Poudre Universelle Libre after prepping the skin well with Chanel’s amazing Hydra Beauty Serum. Last touch was Le Blush Crème de Chanel in Inspiration N°64 and Roige Coco Shine in Instinct N°86 on the lips, before he started on the eyes proper.
“On the eyelids I used Les 4 Ombres Prélude N°33, and added a sweeping line along the lower lid with Le Crayon Yeux Noir Black and Le Crayon Kohl in Clair N°69 ”, he explained. Then he applied Le Volume de Chanel Black N°01 mascara onto just the upper lashes.
“I wanted to reproduce the sparkle that features throughout the collection,” he said of the makeup look’s standout feature, “so to make the eyes really shimmer I applied over-sized platinum sequins just above the upper lashes, like an ’eyeliner’. It was so much fun playing with this over-sized-glitter and making a look that truly stands out against an amazing décor, yet remains in tune with the mood of the collection.”
It was definitely the kind of star turn he is so famous for, and the beauty media lapped it up, along with the essential nail colour for the season - Le Vernis in Elixir N°589. Bring it on!
