Haute couture, according to Chanel, focuses more on the details than the exuberant colors and cuts.

For makeup, it’s the same. There’s a play on the lightness, the perfection of a complexion, light lips …

To create the makeup Chanel Haute Couture fashion show, it all started from sketches of Karl Lagerfeld.


“Karl wanted a light, fresh look with soft colors,” said Peter Philips. “So we did this makeup look with an eyeliner. They would not mind having a 60’s look but something more graphic.” The eyeliner is drawn as a block, on the eyelids. Instead of ending with a thin flick, it is thick.


“We put the blush on top and under the eye. I wanted to do something very bright with color and diffuse light.”


The complexion is opalescent, produced with the new palette specially created for the parade.


On the lips, the color is light and bright. Peter Philips has used the Rouge Coco Shine  Royallieu #58, which applies as easily as a lip balm. The result is very natural and very fresh.


The key elements of the look of Chanel Spring Summer 2011 Haute Couture – A light make-up, a graphic eyeliner and a black ribbon around the neck.
