PETER PHILIPS - creative director of Chanel Make-up - concocted a beauty look that had us dreaming of India for weeks at Chanel's Paris-Bombay Métiers d'Art show in December, and now the products created especially for the show are about to launch in the form of a limited-edition Bombay Express collection.

"We wanted to create an almond-shaped black kohl eye - a graphic interpretation of an iconic Indian beauty ideal," Philips explained. "I kept the focus on the eyes, and achieved a matte pitch black make-up result by using a new shade of Illusion d'Ombre called Nirvana. I used Le Crayon Khôl in Black for the eyes and Mascara Inimitable Intense in Black on the lashes."

Philips also added highlights on the cheeks and eyes using Route des Indes de Chanel, a limited-edition shimmering powder.
And, good news for Chanel Le Vernis fans, a new nail colour was created for the show too. Diwali - a light golden shade - is "inspired by the famous 'festival of lights' that takes place in India".
