Strong Rock n Roll Eyes at Chanel Haute Couture S/S ’12

Wearing blue from head to toe can be tricky to pull off but Karl Lagerfeld but Chanel Creative Director of Makeup Peter Philips proved it otherwise at the Chanel Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2012 show by giving models a strong, slightly rock ‘n roll eye.

After prepping the skin with Hydra Beauty Serum Hydration Protection Radiance (available April 2012), Philips created a flawless base with Perfection Lumiere Long Wear Flawless Fluid Makeup SPF 10, Eclat Lumiere Highlighting Face Pen and Correcteur Perfection Long Lasting Concealer. He set it with Poudre Universelle Libre Natural Finish Loose Powder and added the lightest flush on the cheeks using Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Rose Ecrin.

For the strong, slightly rock n roll eyes, Philips colored in the lids with Le Crayon Yeux Precision Eye Pencil in Bleu Aérien before blending Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Apparition through the crease towards the temple and adding Destination on the brow bone and inner corners. Herimmed the eyes with Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long Lasting Eyeliner in Marine and Le Crayon Khol Intense Eye Pencil in Marine and finished the look by curling lashes with Recourbe Cils De Chanel Precision Eyelash Curler and coating them with Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in Black.

To balance out the strong eyes, Philips created a muted pink lip. He started out with Rouge Coco Baume Hydrating Conditioning Lip Balm before Le Crayon Levre Precision Lip Pencil in Natural and painting the lips with Rouge Coco Hydrating Crème Lip Colour in Superstition.

To go with the blue theme, a new polish, Le Vernis Nail Colour in Sky Line was used.
