Chanel's Shiny Makeup Look & French Manicure at Paris Fashion Week
Karl Lagerfeld's show is one of the most highly anticipated at Paris fashion week, and this year he gave Chanel Makeup's creative director, Peter Philips, the words "shine, focus on eyes and silver" as inspiration for the beauty look. He created an exclusive platinum eyeshadow shade called Platine Précieux, that looked enchanting and beautifully light-reflecting. The lips also had a shine using a combination of Rouge Allure Gracile and Lèvres Scintillantes Plaisir. The cheeks had no blush and the skin was luminous thanks to Chanel's Vitalumiere foundation.
The nail look at Chanel Spring 2013 was quite a standout, with models donning French manicures. It's a classic look that took a back seat to nail art and bright hues long ago, so it will be very interesting to see if a trend forms off the back of the show. We already know nude nails and minimalistic makeup are the trends du jour — so French manicures certainly fit nicely into the mute colour story.
