Can you believe that I’m gonna give you a sneak peek of Chanel Spring – Summer 2011 Makeup Collection and new makeup trends? It’s too early to talk about this, I know but if it were up to me I will skip the cold season and bring Spring and Summer much closer. 🙂
Chanel Makeup Collection for Spring – Summer 2011 is created by Peter Philips and the new trend suggest a black smokey eye makeup and pink nude lips.
The new collection will include Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eyeshadow in black, white and two pinkish shades, one Chanel Blush, two new nail polishes and a new range of lipstick called Coco Red Shine.
For Summer 2011 season Peter Philips sees nails in black and white. Chanel Le Vernis in #513 Black Pearl is a gray shade with light reflections while Pearl Drop is a white pearl.
Peter said: I wanted to keep a link with the fashion show. The ground was covered with white gravel, I wanted the feet have a touch of white. As for nails, they recall the English garden with black details that were used.
Honestly I’m a little bit disappointed to see a dark color as a summer polish suggestion. Don’t get me wrong, because I love to wear dark nail polishes but for the Summer season I would expected something vibrant and colorful. 🙂
The eye shows a classic smoky makeup in anthrax shades while the lips have a predominant lively pink shade. This makeup can look great on anyone regardless of their style and age as long as you keep playing with the intensity of makeup.
The new color used for the lips is Boy, a light pink which comes from the new Coco Red Shine lipstick range. On the cheeks is used a soft pink blush then a highlight powder pressed on the apples of cheeks. Only the eye makeup should be dramatic while the rest of the makeup plays on the brightness.
Peter Philips says about the smoky eye intense makeup which he created for this collection:
This is a classic makeup, a thick smoky but rather exaggerated, …This is not a sooty black, which could be a bit harsh, it is dark green and applied wet to reveal subtle reflections. To accompany the smoky, eyebrows have intensified, a touch of kohl pencil applied to the inside of the eye and one drop of mascara “Inimitable”.
What are your thoughts? Are you looking forward to see the new collection?
