Peter Philips — Chanel‘s Global Creative Director of Makeup — holds one of the coolest positions in the beauty world. And Philips isn’t just a makeup artist, he’s also a former graphic design major who made this amazing animated short for NOWNESS. We’re obsessed.
The video involves characters cleverly crafted out of Chanel makeup products and tools. SO CLEVER. And the plot? “Philips’s characters embark on a journey that begins with a lipstick-powered automaton blasting through the clouds and ends on more familiar ground, with a model whose chic ensemble channels Mme Chanel herself.” You really have to watch it for yourself to understand the awesomeness. But trust us, it’s awesome.
