Paris Fashion Week Fall 2012 Beauty Update: Glittering Eyebrows At Chanel

Bedazzled brows created by Peter Philips, Chanel’s creative director of makeup sparkled as the models glided down the runway during the Chanel Fall 2012 runway show in Paris.

Per Vogue.com: “Three weeks ago, [Lagerfeld] sent a quick sketch,” Peter Philips, Chanel’s creative director of makeup, said backstage. “It was a sort of impression, with lots of blush and stones floating on the face. I wanted to translate it into something that would look great on the girls. Contemporary and a little bit military—a kind of strong textural element.” He began dreaming of graphic arches made entirely of real, twinkling stones—but with 67 girls walking in the show, “I knew I didn’t have time to sit and [glue them on] one by one,” he said. Searching for a solution, he called his friends at Lesage—the storied French atelier now owned by Chanel and responsible for its legendary embroidery work. Together, they fashioned a pair of slim, rectangular fabric strips that could be pressed on with one simple gesture.

I think it’s totally fierce. Clearly not for every day, but WHERE have rock-embroidered brows been all my life for a runway moment? What do you think?

    I am pretty obsessed with all the shots of the brows on the Chanel catwalk — I am somewhat adept with make-up but I do not know if I could pull off a DIY with my brows, and then the question turns to where to wear???? If I am honest with myself and I could get this look right I would wear them everywhere.
