The makeup at the Chanel Autumn/Winter Ready to Wear 2012-2013 Show was a super minimal makeup look, with over-the-top bold eyebrows, created by Maison Lesage in collaboration with Peter Phillips, the Creative Director of Chanel Makeup.

Peter said:

“I worked with the Maison Lesage to create sets of embroidered eyebrows. Each eyebrow consists of an anthracite gray sequins and pearl base, embroidered with several sorts and shades of mineral stones and crystals.”

To contour the models’ cheeks, Peter created a Ombre Contraste specially for this show. The compact powder is a lavender/taupe coloured shade called  Notorious, you can see in the picture above the models’ cheekbones have been contoured with the lavender powder (and it is quite purple!).

The rest of the face was kept neutral, to emphasize the impact of the eyebrows.
