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.
The venue: le19M, home of CHANEL’s specialized métier artists
The streamlined yet still defined makeup look paired perfectly with the exquisite detailing and craftsmanship of the pieces flowing down the runway — never overshadowing the creations, but serving to work in perfect harmony instead. The complexion was kept minimal and allowed the models’ natural skin to shine through without the need for heavy contouring or elevated blush. Lips were neutral and composed, leaving the eyes to take centre stage with graphically placed liner and a broad uptilted wing. Nails — as per usual — wore the clean look of Ballerina, a classic pink-nude shade that needs to be in everybody’s nail polish wardrobe, in my opinion.
To start with, skin was first prepped with Hydra Beauty Micro Sérum and Hydra Beauty Camellia Water Cream
