Mis en beauté for Chanel Cruise 2011/12 by Peter Philips

posted by on 2011.05.10, under cosmetics, make up trends

The Frenchism, which translates closest to “bringing out the best in a woman,” meant an all-natural palette, intended to exude an image that was “chic, sophisticated, but not too made up.” This was the Modus Operandi for Peter Philips, Chanel’s creative director of makeup.
More than ever if you are in Antibes on the French Riviera for the Chanel Cruise 2011/12 Show.  After all this is the Mecca of the deshabille’  chic look  pioneered by Icons such as Brigitte Bardot and still part of the DNA of every french woman worth her weight in Chanel #5 in this part of the World.
Great skin, a touch of shadow on the eyes, and a hint of blush on the cheeks: tha was the Beauty Mantra for the day’s event.

Philips turned to Chanel’s new-for-Fall Perfection Lumière foundation for a flawless base, cheeks were given a little boost with a dusting of Chanel’s Joues Contraste blush in Espiègle sort of a faded peach pink and eyes were lined in Stylo Yeaux waterproof eye liner in Ébène, a charcoaled asphalt hue, lids were swept with shimmering shades from the brand’s Quadra eye shadow in Prelude.  Et voila’ —”It’s literally a palette of shadow shades,” said Phillips. Nails too were left nude this time around, while lashes were given depth and volume with a few lashings of Chanel Inimitable waterproof Mascara in Noir. “Always curl your lashes—and your curl will last longer if you use waterproof mascara,” Philips advises.  There now you look like one of the locals the idea is to blend in, not to stick out as if you just arrived from the city…if you do they will end up charging you 20% extra on your bill at the local café…It is what the French regard as the tax on the terminally un-chic. From the look of the first row I would have issued a few citations myself for overdressing….
