I’m sure you’re already avid fans of this website, but CHANEL Make Up Confidential is my new online obsession – it’s entirely dedicated to that enigmatic make up created by Peter Philips. Featuring animated still life montages, tutorials by the wonderous Lisa Eldridge and a round-up of new season products, it’s definitely one for the favourites tab.
Today, Selfridges London is dedicating two windows on Oxford Street to the Chanel robots that appear on the site. There will also be a robot animation on the Chanel counter where you can choose and buy your favourite shade of the lipsticks and eye palettes used to create the little guys.
“A few years ago I made these little robots as part of a headpiece I created for a tribal makeup shoot – that’s where the idea first came from, ” Peter explains, “I then had the chance to play with these characters and do an animation. That’s how my little robots came to life”
