“I was inspired by Kate’s Valentino dress, and I wanted to give her a retro, 30’s style makeup look.”
To get Kate’s 30’s inspired look, Kate started out with a new liner from the Fall 2010 collection available in July 2010, CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Clair, inside the eyes to pop their amazing colours! She then used CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Taupe Grisé, also available in July, from the lash line to the brow bone, gently gradating as she went.
She blended almost up the brow bone and mirrored under the lower lash line to complete the gentle wash of colour. Lashes were curled, and a generous coating of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir completed the eyes. Her cheeks were CHANEL Powder Blush in Imprevu which she applied to the cheekbones and across the bridge of the nose. Finally, on her lips she used CHANEL Rouge Coco in Rose Comete, a soft blue pink.
“Sienna wore a beautiful navy blue dress. We were channeling Brigitte Bardot and decided to do a 60’s influenced eye. I used navy colours to make it a little more modern.”
Kate prepped Sienna’s skin with CHANEL Hydramax + Active Cream. She used CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Marine by wetting the tip then filling in the upper lids to form the base and depth of Sienna’s 60’s ink pot eyes.
On top she pressed in the navy shade from the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Bleu Celeste, blending in a very controlled manner, so not to lose the oval shape. The lips were CHANEL Rouge Allure in Mythic, and she blended CHANEL Powder Blush in Rose Bronze on the apples of her cheeks.
“The inspiration for January’s look was her dress. I wanted the makeup to be dramatic with a futuristic edge.”
Rachel prepped January’s skin with CHANEL Sublimage Fluid. She used shades of blue and grey from the CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Bleu Celeste all the way up into the eyebrow and toward the hairline as a bold singular statement. Her lips were totally nude but hydrated with CHANEL Rouge Allure in Mythic and the cheeks were sculpted with CHANEL Moisturizing Bronzing Powder in Terre Ambre – no blush colour.
“Emma wore a sculpted, one shoulder white gown with a tight waist, beautiful draping and bold zip in the back. Quite modern, yet classic. We felt that makeup called for a smoky eye and a warm skin tone, soft cheeks and pale lips. She wanted to look modern and diversify from her usual romantic look.”
Fulvia prepped Emma’s skin with CHANEL Sublimage Serum. As a base, she applied CHANEL Teinte Innocence in Beige, topped with a bit of CHANEL Natural Finish Loose Powder in Clair. On the eyes, Fulvia used a new eye shadow palette from the Fall collection, available in July; CHANEL Quadra Eyeshadow in Enigma.
She used the rose shade in inner corner and below the brow, metallic grey on top and bottom lids, and the metallic plum near the roots of the lashes. She finished the eyes with two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir. The cheeks were a soft pink with CHANEL Powder Blush in Rose Petale. She completed the look with a pale beige lip, CHANEL Rouge Allure in Mythic.
“Naomi wore a stunning magenta silk one shoulder gown, with a pleated big bow on the one shoulder. For the make up we felt like a light eye and bright lip would complement the look. With her fair complexion, blue eyes and blonde hair, it is my favorite look on her. We did not want to make it look retro.”
Fulvia prepped Naomi’s skin with CHANEL Ultra Correction Line Repair Day Cream. The base was CHANEL Pro Lumiere Professional Finish Makeup in Nude, and CHANEL Eclat Lumiere Highlighter Face Pen in Beige Tendre.
She applied CHANEL Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Ivory all over the lid, and lined the eyes very close to the top lashes with CHANEL Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Ebene. Finally, Fulvia applied two coats of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir, to make the eyes pop. She applied CHANEL Blush Duo Tweed Effect in Tweed Pink to the apples of her cheeks, and gave her a bold, red lip with CHANEL Rouge Coco in Cambon.
“My inspiration for Lily’s look was her extremely expressive eyes! She is so young and fresh but at the same time so sophisticated. She reminded me of a brilliant film noir actress.”
Jeannia prepped Lily’s skin with CHANEL Sublimage Fluid. She wanted to keep the skin dewy and fresh, so as a base she used CHANEL Hydramax + Active Tinted Moisturizer in Sand. On her lids, she blended the deep brown and silver powder shades from the CHANEL Quadra Eye Shadow in Mystic Eyes.
The combination of the two shades brought out her eye colour. She then lined the top and bottom lashes with CHANEL Intense Eye Pencil in Noir, and gave her lashes three coats of CHANEL Inimitable Mascara in Noir. Her naturally bold and gorgeous brows were simply brushed up. On her cheeks, Jeannia applied CHANEL Powder Blush in Imprevu, and finally she gave her a beige, matte lip with CHANEL Rouge Coco in Beige Felin.
