Chanel Spring Couture 2010 - Love the Makeup and the Bow

I just adore everything about the hair/makeup looks from the Chanel Spring Couture 2010 show.

I love the big Marie Antoinette-esque bouffant wigs with the cheeky bangs (straight, shiny youthful fringe with gray streaks -- genius!) and the tattered gray bow with frayed edges.

And the makeup! Here we have the prettiest makeup I've seen in a long time. The beauty is in the simplicity: delicate washes of silvery cloud-gray eyeshadow + rosy lipstick = loveliness.

The lipstick is Chanel Rouge Allure in Genial from the summer collection. Sorry to tease you! It won't be out for a few more months.

I'm considering this makeup look (and the bow??) for my wedding day. What do you think?

  1. Yes! I think it is a perfect makeup look for your wedding and the bow would look AWESOME. I don't think your MOH would mind...

  2. Unfortch I have the gray streak -- naturally!!
