Buro 24/7 x Chanel Plumes Précieuses: The Shoot
Seasonal sparkle with Chanel...
Inspired by Gabrielle Chanel's original fine jewellery collection of delicate diamonds and feathers, esteemed Chanel makeup artist Toni Malt handcrafted three beautiful makeup looks for the festive month of December – all using Chanel's 2014 Christmas collection, Chanel Plumes Précieuses.
"As a makeup artist product compatibility is really important. The versatility of each individual Chanel makeup collection is unsurpassed, I can create a dark sultry evening look and a young fresh look using the same collection, each as strong as the other." explained Malt on the cosmetics used for the Buro 24/7 Middle East's special makeup edit.
With a total of three different looks, models posed for The Factory photographers as they wore pieces from Chanel's Arabian-inspired Cruise 2014/15 collection, giving us stunning options to celebrate the launch of the limited edition Chanel Plumes Précieuses – which will only be available on counters for a few more weeks.
The first look consisted of Malt using Chanel's bold Rouge Allure Velvet in La Flamboyante for a bright lip and Camelia de Plumes highlighting powder to give a luxurious glow to the skin. "A red lip never fails to mesmerise, this year's collection's orangey red shade is incredibly vibrant, fresh and young and looks beautiful on all skin tones." stated Malt.
For those who prefer a more understated and natural look, Malt used Chanel Plumes Précieuses' peachy shade of lipstick and eye colour for a shimmering glow with the Illuision d'ombre Envol for the cheeks, Joues Contraste in Caresse for the eyes and Rouge Allure 's Volage for a soft lip.
Designed exclusively for the holidays, Chanel's 2014 Christmas collection is one of this year's most coveted beauty ranges, with Malt proclaiming her admiration for her favourite product from the collection: "The holiday collection is always a highlight for me, because I enjoy the deep toned eyeshadows paired with elegant red lipshades. My favorite product this year has to be the Camelia de Plumes Highlighting Powder, this is a magical product creating beautiful iridescent highlights."
And for those who are fans of the more dramatic makeup look, Chanel's dark eye palette Les 5 Ombres de Chanel, Stylo Yeux Waterproof in Or blanc and Inimitable Intense Mascara will be your magic wands to achieve this look – bound to make an entrance at whichever holiday soirée you go to. Hands are also not forgotten as they can get a dose of vibrant red with Le Vernis Nail Colour in Phenix.
