A Closer Look at Chanel’s Metiers d’art Beauty

Was Brigitte Bardot the inspiration behind the big hair and dark eyes?

When a Chanel show happens, it’s an event that leaves people talking for days, sometimes even weeks. The Parisian label recently staged its Métiers d’art in Rome, where Karl Lagerfeld created a makeshift Parisian street in the city’s famed Cinecittà Studios, Studio No.5. While the set, looks and front-row attendees  – Rooney Mara, Zhou Xun and Kristen Stewart were among them, and Bella Hadid made her Chanel debut – were the main draws, we couldn’t help noticing the makeup. Hair was puffed up at the crown, fringes were parted, eyes were dark and lips were soft – it was a clear throwback to Brigitte Bardot, but with a bit of holiday pomp. Chanel has since revealed the products behind the look: Rouge Coco Stylo in Script for the natural lips and Illusion d’Ombre in Griffith Green and Fleur de Pierre for the lids, all available next year. Unfortunately, the soot-like glitter used around the eyes is not for sale. Time to look for substitutes in the craft store!
