When we had the chance to work with Chanel’s acclaimed makeup artist Julie Cusson, we wanted to create a beauty shoot that was anything but ordinary. Cusson brought a couture sensibility to these five modern beauty looks and photographer Richmond Lam brought it all to life with one simple tool: the iPhone X. We were blown away by the incredible clarity and resolution of the images Lam produced (you can see the feature in print in our sister magazine Mariage Québec) and by the drama and beauty of Cusson’s incredibly fashion-forward looks.
For these looks, Cusson used the latest and greatest from Chanel’s fall beauty collection. The looks are dramatic and daring marrying smoky eyes with both statement lips and barely there nude shades. “To create depth and richness with your bridal eye makeup, I love a smoky eye created by mixing matte brown with midnight blue,” Cusson says. “I love creating eyes with a matte texture paired with a luminous complexion. No blush required just matte beige pink lips.” Cusson also says she loves the idea of playing with textures when it comes to the skin and bridal makeup. “I love matte and shiny in the same look, it’s interesting and sexy.” Cusson’s runway to real way looks offer a fresh look at bridal makeup and we are completely smitten with her haute vision!
