Backstage Beauties by CHANEL Spring 2013 Couture

A dramatic, smudgy eye decked with feathery lashes added a strong contrast to the romantic pieces at the Chanel Spring 2013 Couture runway show at Paris ...

Gothic Smudgy Eye by CHANEL

Even from the front row it might have looked like elaborate eyeshadow, but models on the CHANEL Couture Spring 2013 runway had their eyes decorated with custom fabric cut-outs. Made from the same fabric used in the headpieces, two different snowflake-shaped pieces were affixed around the outer corner of the eye to enhance the otherwise all-black makeup. The result is a fluttering, feathered look that’s so pretty we’re ready to start snipping out pieces of tulle for our own eyes. (After all, if you tried to duplicate this with makeup alone, smudges would certainly soon follow making these appliques all the more genius!)

As for the non-arts and crafts portion of the beauty look at Chanel, Peter Philips began by prepping the skin with Hydra Beauty Serum. Eyes were lined with Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof liner in “Noir Intense” (Limited Edition) and throughly covered with Stylo Eyeshadow in “Black Stream” (a new shade due out in May 2013). But it’s the cheek colour that stands out almost as much as the decorated eyes after all, a healthy glow helps balance even the darkest makeup. Phillips used Joues Contraste blush in “Frivole” from the Printemps Précieux Spring 2013 Collection and lips were panted a similar petal-pink shade, Chanel Rouge Allure in “Fantasque.” And, because it isn’t a Chanel show without an exciting new nail colour to look forward to, you’ll be delighted to know that models’ fingers were painted in a pale-coral shade (which is currently on counters!) called “Emprise."
