As Monroe once quipped, “Beneath the make up and behind the smile I am just a girl who wishes for the world”. It’s a nice idea, but we’re not so much interested in what’s behind the make up, as the make up itself thanks – especially when, as in this case, the make-up is Chanel. And just like Marilyn, Lily-Rose Depp uses the stuff as a means of disguise, transforming herself into a multitude of characters with the help of Lucia Pica, Chanel’s Global Creative Make Up and Colour Designer, and of course, their latest assortment of lotions and potions. Only Chanel gives one the versatility to pull off a beret-donning spy, an acclaimed writer and a young American ingénue in Paris, all within two minutes. If you’re asking yourself how that’s humanly possible, take a closer look at the new Rouge Coco Lip Blush in the below film. Lip Blush? Yes, you read that right – this economising, 2-in-1 gizmo is half lips, half rouge, a bit like those double ended felt tips any primary school pencil case was incomplete without, only this is stationary for your face. And lord knows, Lily’s all about getting into character.
