Chanel Couture Spring 2013

At Chanel Couture yesterday, the look, as created by Peter Philips the brand’s creative director of make up, was a lesson in gorgeously dark, gothic beauty. An extreme but pretty update on a classic smoky eye, models – including current catwalk favourite, Cara Delevingne – sported immaculately placed tulle appliques over a glossy, graphic carbon eye, painted on with Chanel Stylo Eyeshadow in Black Stream and multiple coats of volumising mascara. The fragile-yet-fierce look perfectly offset the feathered hair-pieces created in the same fabric by Sam McKnightt that casually cascaded over a single eye. Skin was kept velvety and flawless with a hint of peach blush and a soft, moisture-rich rosebud mouth.
