Chanel is forecasting an ethereal Spring, an "underwater fairytale," according to Peter Philips, Creative Director of Chanel Makeup. With pale, glowing skin, strong brows, shiny lids and soft lips, Philips' key words were: "luminosity, purity and a touch of humour." From Karl Lagerfeld, it was "shine and pearls." My words? Love. This is an easy, feminine beauty.
Eyes were glossy and shiny -- Philips used the word, "wet" -- with black liner along the lashes. You can get this look now; Philips used Illusion d'Ombre shadow in Fantasme (81) and EmerveillÃ© (82), which are part of the 2011 Fall Collection. And hang onto your brow-builders, ladies -- note the definition that keeps the look from being too sweet.
Cheeks were brushed with Blush Horizon de Chanel, a special edition pink/coral for Spring; lips were a soft sheen, a combination of Rouge Coco Baume and LÃ¨vres Scintillantes in Plaisir, also both part of the Spring 2012 makeup collection.
Spring nails in three shades: 1) Chanel Les Vernis in April (533).
