Chanel’s spring 2011 makeup collection is inspired by Coco Chanel’s belief that “the light-reflecting property of pearls enhanced a woman’s natural beauty bringing a delicate luminosity to her skin.”
Peter Philips, the Global Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, captures this quality in the Spring 2011 Les Perles de Chanel Collection.Naturally, there is an iridescent quality to it; there are glowing shades of black and white, and accents of pink and coral — all shades that brighten the skin with a soft, natural glow.
Get ready to shimmer with intense smoky eye makeup, black pearl nail polish, and more. The collection for spring 2011 includes:
