Perfectly now and yet enraptured by a strong nostalgia for the past, Chanel’s fall 2013 makeup look is one every party girl will want to add to her arsenal of show-stopping beauty tricks. Eyes were flecked by pieces of glitter that not only lined the lid but clung gently to the eyelashes like shimmering fallen snow. Lead makeup artist Peter Philips made sure the look was one that caught the light from every angle, and caught everyone’s attention in the process.

What we love about this is that it doesn’t go over the top on the bedazzling, nor is it too difficult to replicate at home or adapt to your own liking.

We’ll have some extra detail on exact products soon, in the meantime you can find out how to recreate Chanel’s glitter-dusted beauty look by following the steps after the break.

How to: Chanel’s glittery beauty look

Prep the face by applying a moisturiser and primer. This will help keep the skin soft and fresh and will help your makeup last longer.
Apply foundation for a natural and even skin tone, adding concealer under the eyes and wherever else necessary. Chanel’s Perfection Lumière foundation was used backstage to get that flawless look.

Apply a cream blush to the cheeks for a soft, feminine look. Chanel used a carnation pink cream blush called Inspiration which will be released in their upcoming fall range.

For the eyes: the focus here is obviously on the sparkling metallic glitter that clusters across the top lid and lashes. Peter Philips and the Chanel team used makeup glue to carefully stick chunky pieces of silver and gold glitter to the top lid.

First, dot the glitter pieces along the top lash line – using a cotton-tip to align them in place as you see fit – and then to complete the Chanel look add some pieces to the ends of the lashes.

Rather than over-do the glitter by also putting it on the bottom, the Chanel runway went for a more mod look. Chanel’s Le Crayon Khôl in Noir was used under the bottom lash line, drawn outwards and down at the outer corner for a wide-eyed and retro-inspired look.
Accompany the beauty look with complimentary nail polish to match. Chanel went for a softly feminine shade called “Milky Rose” from their upcoming fall makeup range.

Looking at just how gorgeous glitter-dusted eye makeup is, it shouldn’t come as any surprise to find that it’s on-trend in 2014.
