Following my post from a few days ago on celebrity red carpet looks, today I thought it'd be fun to cover the beauty side of two new spring 2013 couture collections: Chanel and Dior.
First up, here's what went on at Christian Dior:
As soon as I saw these lips, I knew I had to post about them. Those are crystals! I know this isn't anything we haven't seen/heard of already, but I still thought the execution was incredible. It looks like they started out by filling in lips with a bright coral/pink lip liner, then placing the crystals on top. The last picture shows them cleaning up the edges (probably with some concealer). The little flick of black liquid liner is a cool, edgy way to finish the look.
Next, we have almost the complete opposite at Chanel:
Instead of light and bright, Chanel went with dark, smokey eyes with what looks like tulle cut in the shape of feathers. Some models had less of a smokey eye than the ones shown above, but all were variations on that shimmery black and gray. Their faces were kept bare and just a light pink lip to balance it out.
Do you find runway makeup interesting, or do you prefer more neutral looks that you can replicate? I definitely think these looks are gorgeous but you wouldn't find me wearing either of them outside. ;)
Have a great Tuesday!
