CHANEL FALL-WINTER 2015/16 HAUTE COUTURE
For the Fall-Winter 2015/16 Haute Couture Show, Karl Lagerfeld designed individual outfits for about 20 celebrities, including Kristen Stewart, Lily-Rose Depp (the new face of Chanel), Julianne Moore and Rita Ora, to name just a few. The show started with them all arriving to a reinvented casino at the Grand Palais, taking their seats, and playing a game of Blackjack.
They were center-stage as the models walked the show around them.
The Haute Couture gowns worn by the celebrities, made especially for the event, were accessorised with re-editions in platinum and diamonds of the first unique “Bijoux de Diamants” collection created by Mademoiselle Chanel in 1932.
Talk about amazing!
Below is the short Story of the beautiful show:

I was off course most interested in the make-up and hair.
Neo-tomboy plunging bob hairstyles, natural matte skin, strong brows, ruby lips and a striking blushed contour.
Classic and elegant, yet still modern!
If you love this look as much as I do and want to know how to adapt this makeup look to everyday, this is what I would recommend:
Be sure your skin is well looked after and beautiful hydrated. Chanel’s Hydra Beauty products were used on the models for the show. For Foundation try the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF15 for a flawless but natural complexion. Use the Correcteur Perfection Long Lasting Concealer to concealer ONLY where needed.
Be sure to apply a light touch of foundation on the eyelids and a soft touch of mascara for that fresh eyed look.
The secret when doing a full, filled-in brow, is to not go too dark! If you are a brunette, try Le Sourcil De Chanel Perfect Brows “Brun” (No20). Do not draw in your brows with hard lines, but rather do soft feathered lines until you have achieved the desired effect.
Cheeks! Those cheeks! Although they look beautiful on these perfectly styled models, let’s face it, us everyday girls look a bit ridiculous when we try this. I recommend using a blush that has the same tone as the lip colour, like the Joues Contraste “Frivole” Powder Blush (No76) that was used on the models. Instead of using the blush as dramatic as pictured above, apply the blush in the same area, just a bit higher, and not so intense. Personally I would apply my contour colour exactly where you see the blush, and then apply the blush just above that. Make sense?
Lastly the lips! A beautiful deep Ruby red applied just a touch fuller than the natural lip line. Le Crayon Levres Precision Lip Definer in “Rouge Profong” (No57) and Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in “la Bouleversante” (No15- coming August 21st) was used for the show.
I would love to see how you guys interpret this pretty makeup look. If you would like to, Share your pics with me on Instagram or Twitter @marlimakeup
