Chanel Resort 2013 Backstage

When Chanel sent me those backstage photos of the Resort 2013 show, I could not wait to share them with you. It is so nice to see the jewelry and details up close.
Personally speaking, this collection is absolutely divine and the floral embellishments on those dresses above leave me absolutely speechless.

“It is Coco rock, French rock with a very 18th century frivolity, one that’s been updated with new materials and new proportions,” Karl Lagerfeld explained.

LoL, Sandra

Chanel Resort 2013 Makeup Look

k2012-13 Cruise_20

Today’s post is dedicated to the beautiful Chanel Resort 2013 makeup look “Versailles de Chanel”. (For photos of the runway show that took place one week ago at the Bosquet des Trois Fontaines at the Château de Versailles, please click here.)

Generally speaking, pink eyes are not easy to pull off. Well, unless you are Peter Philips, Creative Director for Chanel Makeup. He makes pink eyes covetable as an everyday look with less mascara and an all over pink eyeshadow.

In a little interview, he gave further details on the look: “The makeup is inspired by the theme of the collection: Versailles. It’s a ‘pink’ makeup, between “girly” and “rebel”. I used Ombre Essentielle-Rose Favorite” on the eyelids and “Joues Contraste – Rose Pétale” as a blusher.

Beige Khol liner ‘Clair’ in the eyes and I slightly enhanced the eyebrows. I kept the skin natural, to avoid the makeup from looking historical. Soft, pinkish lips I achieved by applying “Rouge Coco Shine – Evasion” and I topped the makeup off by placing a black velvet Chanel logo as a beauty spot on either the left or right side of the face (high on the cheekbones, under the eye). Last minute I added a subtle highlight with “Mouche de Beauté” a compact highlight powder.

The eyeshadow, highlight powder and velvet CC’s were created especially for this show.”
