CHANEL · Backstage Beauty Spring/Summer 2023 Haute Couture Collection

 

This past January, CHANEL’s Spring/Summer 2023 Haute Couture Collection loosely drew inspiration from the abundance of animals depicted in Coco Chanel’s Rue Cambon apartment, and exquisite creations aside, I’m all about the effortless yet chic beauty looks seen on the runway. Looks, I should add, that are also ridiculously easy to recreate … which I fully intend to do.

Presented at the Grand Palais Éphémère in Paris, invited guests found before them 11 monumental animals made of wood, cardboard, and paper created by Xavier Veilhan — all inspired by the menagerie of creatures in Mademoiselle’s Rue Cambon apartment.

As far as the actual makeup used, I’m happy to see that all the products are readily available and that nothing was limited edition or exclusive. What makes this a standout look for me, is the minimalistic approach which allowed skin to be the real star of the show, while the vivid lipstick some of the models sported served in perfect counterpoint without taking over. I also like that a cream bronzer replaced a traditional blush, a trick I often use as well when going for a more natural effect. Even though there’s no mention of mascara, I personally will be applying some — perhaps to my top lashes only, although that might change depending on my mood. As per basically all the recent shows, nails were kept deliberately understated, staying in line with the theme, the better to not compete with the stunning fashion.

 

Skin was first prepped using 2 key products from CHANEL’s N°1 range; Red Camellia Revitalizing Serum and Red Camellia Rich Revitalizing Cream (full review on both coming to the blog soon)
