Get The Look: Chanel Autumn/Winter Ready to Wear 2012-2013

Here are the details about the look for Chanel Autumn/Winter Ready to Wear 2012-2013 Show created by Peter Philips, Creative Director of Chanel Make-up.

Here is what Peter Philips says about the look:

‘The inspiration for the makeup look came from a few key words and a sketch that Karl Lagerfeld provided: minerals, shading and eyebrows were the key words and the sketch showed a face with stone-lined eyebrows.

So the focus is on the eyebrows, which led me to interpret Karl’s drawing and the “mineral” emphasis by creating straight, graphic eyebrows.

I worked with the Maison Lesage to create sets of embroidered eyebrows. Each eyebrow consists of an anthracite gray sequins and pearl base, embroidered with several sorts and shades of mineral stones and crystals.

For the makeup in general, I wanted a matte finished skin and used CHANEL’s Mat Lumière foundation. The shading and sculpting of the face was achieved with Ombre Contraste a compact specially created for this show. The compact powder is a lavender/taupe coloured shade called Notorious that I applied to the eyelids and then straight down on the side of the face, in a contouring style. The rest of the face I kept nude, so as to keep the focus on the eyebrows.

For the nails I chose the new shade of Le Vernis in Frenzy (2012 Autumn Collection), which is totally colour coordinated with Notorious.’
