Chanel 2012 Spring-Summer Ready-to-Wear Show - Love the clothes? Now love the makeup!

 So pretty were the clothes at the Chanel 2012 Spring-Summer Ready-to-Wear Show that you might not have even have noticed Peter Philips' makeup - but you need to 'cause it sure is purty!
Uncle Karl wanted shine and pearl to meet his inspiration of a fantastic underwater fairytale feeling and mood of lightness.
Philips focused on luminosity, purity and a touch of humour. He did pale, glowy skin with a pink/coral blush, a wet shiny eyelid finished with a black eyeliner. Slightly glossy lips and randomly placed pearl «piercings». Some girls even had a pearl spine.

As well as creating a white pearly nailpolish (Attraction 545 available in 2012) exclusively for the show, he also came up with three more colourful looks:
Le Vernis - April - 533
Le Vernis - May -535
Le Vernis - June - 539
Philips feels that this is a very accessible, wearable look - not to mention easy to apply and flattering for most women. The balance between shine and mat, topped with a hint of colour, is a perfect way to float into Spring 2012.

What do you think of the look? I must admit, I find the pearl spine a little creepy but the rest is so soft and pretty - I'm already thinking spring!

Should you be so inclined, you can check the makeup out in action at the runway show right here my friends!

  1. I actually like the pearl spine, but not the random flowers or pearls or whatever on her face in the first photo!

  2. I've made a note to get you a pearl spine for Christmas! Agreed - I think they are pearls and I'm not a fan either!

    Best, Lisamarie
