CHANEL · Backstage Beauty Métiers d’Art Show 2021

 

Every year CHANEL pays tribute to the virtuoso hands behind all the exquisite details that go into each creation with the Métiers d’Art show, with the 2021/22 Collection held at Le 19M — the new venue where all of the Maison’s artisans are currently housed. Initiated by Coco Chanel herself, this endeavour helps to preserve the incredible skills of several hundred artisans, while also shaping new specialists to further these time-honoured traditions. The beauty look was both avant-garde and timeless … and you can bet that I’ll be trying my hand to recreate it. Wish me luck.

Laura Mercier’s original setting powder has earned a well-deserved reputation as a must-have item in basically every makeup artist’s kit. Now this cult-fave product comes in a new “light-creating” finish and in 3 tones to suit a wider range of complexions.

My Fave Summer Glow Makeup Products

 

It’s now September, but I’m still keeping that summer glow alive with the help of these fave ‘enhancers’ and when combined with a bit of bronzer, the result is just fab. No need for self-tanner either (although that’s also a really great option) and the best part? It’s super easy and can be customized for every skin tone and using products you may already have.

Dior Backstage · Face & Body Powder-No-Powder

 

Inspired by his work behind the scenes at runway shows, Peter Philips created the Backstage product line in 2018 — a range that is simultaneously professional and intuitive in its approach to makeup. Each season, the brand’s Creative & Image Director finds a way to transmit his pro secrets through essential and universal products that deliver on performance, but also happen to be so easy to use. All I know, is that I’ve yet to be disappointed by anything in the lineup … and that record is still holding strong with this launch.
