This new Chanel Makeup Confidential film Created by Peter Philips the Creative Director of Chanel features Latvian model Inguna Butane and a preview of the new Rouge Allure lipstick shades which are set to launch on the 14th September this year. The Indian inspired music and small pieces of mirror forming a mask and a third eye on model Inguna Butane gives a mystic feel of things to come.
Peter Philips explains the complexity of Inguna’s look ‘The “mirror look” isn’t an actual mask. The pieces of crystals and mirrors are individually applied onto the face. The composition is created around the central mirror that’s applied on the forehead as a third eye, surrounded by a peacock-tail motive. The whole face is covered with pieces of crystals and mirrors to create a mesmerizing effect. The only touch of colour is the changing lip shades. The application of the crystals and mirrors took 4 hours.’
At Pucci, smoky eyes caught the light with bronze finishing powders applied to the center of the lid. Matte black shadow was used at the corners of the eyes to bring out the metallic shimmer.
Peter Philips carefully applied gold leaf to models’ eyelids at Fendi, keeping the rest of the face bare.
Rodarte kept smoky eyes cool for hot summer nights, with a mix of icy blue shades topped with mother of pearl right across the lid.
At Chanel, Peter Philips brought the white light of midsummer nights to the girls’ faces, with satiny lids finished with a pale metallic shimmer and white gold nails.
Givenchy gave its girls the Midas touch for the runway, with a sequin cut in half and applied to the center of the eyelid, above and below the eye. The two halves only came together when the girls’ eyes were shut.
Eyes were swept with a wave of silver at 3.1 Philip Lim, highlighting the crease of the lid and widening eyes in a trick of light and colour.
