Glass goes backstage Chanel PFW AW18 and checks out the beauty

ONE of the biggest treats of Paris fashion week is the revelation of what Karl Lagerfeld will transform the Grand Palais into next. For the AW18 show, guests arrived at Lagerfeld’s makeshift forest, complete with real oak trees and a floor scattered with crisp autumn leaves to watch the Chanel show. The audience made themselves comfortable on tree trunks and awaited the new collection to be revealed.

Hair and beauty at the Chanel shows is always important, and as the models crunched over the woodland runway, their hair bobbed along, tied up in topknots styled by Sam McKnight. Hair was pulled back from the face and placed in a messy bun or pinned up with pretty Chanel hair accessories. Simplicity at its best.

To suit the outdoorsy environment, faces were painted naturally, reflecting the freshness of the autumn season which you could almost smell in the air. Skin was prepped with Hydra Beauty Micro Gel Yeux, Hydra Beauty Micro Serum and La Solution 10 de Chanel.

Next up was the Ultrawear Flawless Foundation, and boy was it flawless. Cheekbones soaked up the natural light with the metallic shine of highlighter, and pouts coated with Rouge Coco Lip Blush in Tender Rose from the new 2018 spring collection. Eyes were pretty but plain, shaded with the Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palette in Deep, and lashes swept with Le Volume de Chanel Mascara – Noir N°10. A cast of natural beauty in a whimsical setting. What more could we expect?
