Soon after photographing Paré in the pool, we invited a parade of Hollywood’s leading artists to visit us on Melrose Place to meticulously document and vet, according to the Violet Code
, the Chanel beauty essentials that would change our lives, and our cosmetic wardrobes, forever. We learned that Vitalumiere Acqua foundation
offers the most flawless finish (thank you, Rachel Goodwin); that the Sublimage Eye cream
erases last night’s most mischievous decisions (we are deeply grateful, Kate Lee); and that the Bronzing Makeup Base
is a cosmetic wardrobe staple for its ability to both subtly contour and deliver an enviable glow to any complexion (Pati Dubroff, we owe you our firstborn).
All these priceless beauty lessons learned and secrets shared by the artists and our extensive community are then neatly filed away into The Violet Files
. In celebration of Chanel Beauté arriving on the shelves at VIOLET GREY, we penned a few new Files for your perusal: Live life as only Coco Chanel would in Coco’s Maintenance Rules
; meet makeup artists Kate Lee
and Rachel Goodwin, along with the Chanel beauty essentials they curated for VIOLET GREY; and learn how to appropriately red lip yourself with tutorials (modeled by Amber Valletta) inspired by Mademoiselle Chanel’s own signature scarlet lip look.
These and many more beauty secrets await, so without further ado, we at The Violet Files and VIOLET GREY invite you to prepare for your own date with destiny...
