Chanel Spring 2011 Sneak Peek!

If there is one thing I can say with absolute conviction, it is that I am truly, madly, deeply in love with Chanel Beauty. That being said, I wanted to share a special sneak peek of the Spring 2011 Color Collection, as seen on the runways this fall.


“Karl Lagerfeld showed me a sketch he had drawn of a girl with smoky eyes, so it was clear that we would put the focus on the eyes for this show. The inspiration for the color came from the black-white-green French garden that was recreated in the Grand Palais, from the glow that we can find in black, grey and white pearls, and the enamel that Karl integrated into the costume jewelry. I created deep, dark smoky eyes on a luminous fresh face with tinted, dewy lips. Nails were graphic and strong, and a thin black line was drawn in the hair.”

– Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup
