Stunning new Byzance de Chanel

by Katie on July 2, 2011

It’s rare that I rave about a new look but Chanel have trumped all with a stunning look that’s edgy, stand out and yet sophisticated – Meet the stunning new Byzance de Chanel collection that’s been used to create a flamboyant ‘ 60’s meet’s modern Egyptian princess look by Peter Phillips, Creative Director of Chanel Make-Up especially for the Paris Byzance-Metiers d’Art 201-2011 show.

Vintage gold, bronze and deep shimmering chocolate have been brought together in the latest Chanel Topkapi quartet.  Such a thing of gorgeousness, embellished with the double C stamp, it makes you squirm at ruining the quilted eye shadow embossing.

Phillips mastery is to create a modern muse empress Theodora from these rich colours and combining with a deep red blush used on eyes and cheeks:  A red line crosses the eyelid, following the brow line. Parallel to this, a stroke of deep black kohl eyeliner accentuates a graphic effect and frames the eye.  The vintage lustre of the shadows are drawn across the eyelids in graduations of gold and red.  The spectacle and focus on eyes is offset with nude lips and nails coated in natural beige.

The Topkapi eye shadow quartet is £37; the deep red powder blush £31 while the Rogue Byzantin lip colour is £24.

Available now, exclusively in the Chanel make-up studio, Selfridges, House of Fraser, Glasgow and Fenwick, Newcastle.

The shadow quartet is a thing of great beauty! I love the bronze shade in particular – very sultry yet summery.
