Chanel Couture Show: Bringing Back The Classic Look

8 Mar

Fashion has swung back from flashy and the trend has trickled down to makeup, too. The Chanel Couture show in January was absolutely classic using pink, black, and silver around the eyes of the models. Chanel’s creative director for makeup Perter Philips used a back to basics approach where eyes are also smokey, faces are bronzed, and lips are red.. Mr. Philips’s job will be to tone down his wilder instincts—while translating the trend into sales. Mr. Philips, has made his name with unconventional nail-polish colors—from the taupe-toned Particulière, to Jade green, to the Mimosa yellow due to hit stores in May. His bold take led him to design temporary tattoos for Chanel’s show two years ago. They were so striking that the company made a limited number for sale. Consumers snapped them up. At the Chanel couture show, models’ nails were painted in Tendresse pale pink. Fashion editors cite the return of prettiness and tastefulness after years of flirty looks such as cat eyes. I personally love cat eyes but who would argue with Chanel. See how to get the look. – Chanel’s Bold Makeup Czar Embraces the Classics*
