Contrastes Essentiels de CHANEL, created by Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL makeup! Xx


CHANEL have launched a new limited edition, 
capsule makeup collection, 
Contrastes Essentiels de CHANEL, 
created by Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL makeup. 
This collection was created especially for the 
CHANEL Autumn Winter Ready-to-Wear 2012 Show.


 Ombre Contraste in Notorious


From l to r Le Vernis in Vertigo, Frenzy
Rouge Coco in Charme and Caractere
and Ombre Contraste in Notorious

CONTRASTES ESSENTIELS DE CHANEL
 The Grand Palais opened its 
doors to a mineral world, 
a powerful setting with spiky quartz 
and amethyst cut into giant crystals.

The autumn/winter 2012-2013 
collection attaches crystal 
to coat lapels and metal cuffs 
in a harmony of smoky tones. 
Models look victorious with hair 
slicked back and faces almost nude, 
simply sculpted with the effect of a thrown shadow. 
Pure, impenetrable eyes are piercing beneath 
perfectly groomed and precious 
geometric brows paved with gemstones.




 OMBRE CONTRASTE NOTORIOUS, is 
the Exclusive Creation of the Collection, 
and was used in the Autumn Winter 2012/12 show.
                    This beautiful grey taupe shade, 
tinged with lavender, 
can be used on eyelids and cheeks
and is very pale on first application 
but becomes more intense as you layer it up. 

Applied as blush and eyeshadow, 
it acts like a sculpting halo and makes 
it possible to build a singular, 
intriguing shadow effect. 



The ROUGE COCO in this capsule 
collection are in mellow shades  
 to soften the impact of a cold tone on the cheeks: 
CHARME, a bluish pink adds a fresh note to the face, 
while CARACTÈRE accentuates the natural 
colour of the lips with a brown set off 
with a dash of violet plum.

For nails there are two modern lacquer colours

for this look: 
FRENZY, a soft grey lilac, 
and VERTIGO,
 a deep, dark shade 
with a shimmering red sparkles.
