Mirror, Mirror on the Chanel Wall
What better way to celebrate lipstick fabulousness than with masks, mirrors & mini-movies? "I wanted to do a film, a teaser, to announce the coming lipstick event that CHANEL is doing around our Rouge Allure line," explains Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup about *Miroir Miroir*, a video (below) inspired in part by the much-lauded Paris-Bombay show from December 2011.
Crystals and mirrored pieces were painstakingly applied onto model Inguna Butane's face, centered around a mirror on her third eye and radiating outward in a dramatic peacock-tail motif, punctuated with color solely from the lipstick. "When the idea of doing a film around the lipsticks and Paris Bombay started growing in my head, I actually found a platform to create this mirror face. The concept complimented the shades and the hypnotizing, psychedelic aspect fitted well with the Indian theme."
And in case you were wondering...Philips adds: "There is no hidden message behind this makeup." Just glitz, glam & luscious lips.
