Spring Makeup Trend: Classic Chanel

L’Oreal Paris provided two makeup artists for the L’Oreal Paris Beauty Suite in the HBO Luxury Suite for the Golden Globe Awards.  I had a chance to interview them about product, makeup trends and application techniques.

When asked about what to look for in makeup trends for Spring 2008, makeup artist Chantal Moore said one makeup look will be “Classic Chanel”.  The lips are a strong red and the eyes are subtle but modern with silver lids and dark lashes, much like the signature look of Gwen Stefani.

What L’Oreal Paris colors to use to acheiving this look?  L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick Lipstick in British Red , Smokey Eyes Gris Fume Quad and L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara For Lashes in Carbon Black.  Use your fingers to apply the silver by dabbing it on for a pretty day look.  Keep the eyes understated as the lip is the focus in this look.

Products available at mass retailers and L’Oreal Paris.com.
