With dresses that were lightweight, colourfully embroidered and adorned in 3D flowers, a tropical garden theme set the tone for SS15's Haute Couture Chanel line-up, with the makeup on show providing a theme that was just as feminine and bold.

Backstage, makeup artists used a myriad of Chanel's beauty products to create a youthful and glowing look for the models, including Kendall Jenner and Lindsey Wixon.

For their glowing complexion, models sported Chanel's Eclat Lumiere and Les Beiges powder while the eyes were adorned in shimmering shades from an exclusive eyeshadow palette Les Intemporeis de Chanel – a new product available on counters come February.

The cheeks were flushed with the use of L'umiere D'ete, another exclusive product that will be available from April. However, the lips stood out the most as they featured the red 'Arthur' lipstick and 'Scarlet' lip pencil from the new Keira Knightley-fronted Coco Rouge collection out in March.
