fendi spring 2010

  • philips used chanel pro lumiere and set the t-zone with translucent powder
  • to create his mauve smoky eyes he used a combination of chanel shadows in silage (shimmering rose) and trace (plummy brown), concentrating the lighter shade on the lid and contouring with the other
  • to define the eyes philips left off the eyeliner, opting instead for copious amounts of mascara
  • chanel fresque, a peach blush, was used to give the models a glowing flush
  • the lips were finished with a peach lipstick and a sheer plum lip gloss
