Chanel went to India back in December and now you can too. Karl Lagerfeld’s creative vision carried the show and the looks, but the exquisite makeup was due to Peter Philips,(creative director of Chanel makeup). Philips transformed the models into Indian goddesses on the runway. Now you can have a little piece of the sumptuous golds and smokey charcoal and noirs used in the show. The limited edition Bombay Express will be available on June 27.
‘We wanted to create an almond-shaped black kohl eye – a graphic interpretation of an iconic Indian beauty ideal,” Philips explained. “I kept the focus on the eyes, and achieved a matte pitch black make-up result by using a new shade of Illusion d’Ombre called Nirvana. I used Le Crayon Khôl in Black for the eyes and Mascara Inimitable Intense in Black on the lashes.’
