Chanel Autumn Winter 2013: A Closer Look At The Backstage Beauty

08 March 2013 by

Can we just take a moment please to appreciate the beauty that was the Chanel Autumn Winter 2013 show? Ok the clothes were all divine (quelle surprise), the FROW was a serious star-studded affair and Karl went to town on the décor, but the beauty look was pretty bloomin’ phenomenal too. And it’s not surprising considering all-round makeup maverick Peter Phillips was at the helm.

From the glossy mouths to the heavily embellished eyes that nearly gave those iconic Chanel bejewelled brows a run for their money, this beauty look is right up our street for a number of reasons. And when you’ve got the likes of Cara Delevninge, Liu Wen and Lindsey Wixson walking, you know it’s gonna be a show-stopper.

In case y’all are wondering, we got the inside scoop from Chanel’s HQ on what exactly was involved in the creation of this epic makeup. Firstly skin was prepared with Chanel Hydra Beauty Serum and then a base of Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua was used (which is simply amazing FYI). Then it was their Poudre Universelle Libre Loose Finish Powder and Eclat Lumiere Highlighting Pen before moving on to the real stuff.
