Last week, Paris was taken over by an army of “beauty butlers” who marched around the city’s iconic sites donning 3D cartoon-style helmets in true Karl Lagerfeld style. This was all in celebration of his new beauty venture, a limited-edition makeup collaboration with ModelCo that’s full of crazy color, cool packaging, and quirky beauty buys – we’d expect nothing less.
Savoir Flair caught up with British supermodel and face of the brand Stella Maxwell to discover the collection and what she loves about it. Read on to find out more.
What’s your favorite beauty look?
My ultimate go-to beauty look is to play up my lips. I love mixing it up with a glossy pink pout or sexy matte-red statement look. The ‘Lip Lights Liquid Matte Lipstick’, ‘Lip Lights Gloss’, and ‘Lip Lights Top Coat’ come in a huge variety of delectable shades, and I adore the Karl Lagerfeld silhouette head feature that makes them true collector items.
How do you keep your lips looking luscious?
When I first tried the ‘Lip Balm’ on set whilst shooting the Karl Lagerfeld + ModelCo campaign, I became instantly obsessed. It is now one of my go-to beauty products.
Any other favorites in the collection?
The ‘Choupette Eyeshadow Palettes’ are hands down the ultimate fashionable color edits of wearable eye shades. And the ‘Clutch’ is definitely high fashion meets beauty with highly wearable nude-lip essentials inside!
How do you create a winged liner look?
I am super intrigued by the ‘Long-Lasting Liquid Liner’ and ‘Beauty Stamp’ to create the perfect dramatic eye with a quirky edge. I love the Choupette beauty stamp at the end of my winged tip.
What’s your top brow tip?
I am seriously obsessed with the ‘More Brows’ product! No matter how soft or dramatic you desire your arches to be, they’ll look blended and natural with this double-ended duo. Having worked with countless makeup artists, I know how important it is to have good brows that can really work to frame your eyes.
What’s one product you feel naked without?
I never leave the house without a slick of mascara! I love to double coat the ‘Intense Black Volumising Mascara’ for the length and inky-black coating that it gives my lashes. The silicone brush makes getting to the inner and outer corners super easy, too. The formula can give me natural-looking thickness or drama depending on how much I apply.
How do you get that gorgeous glow?
Girls these days need to be photo-ready at any hour of the day. I know I do! ‘The Highlighting Brick’ acts like an instant Instagram filter for your face. I swear by this product to create a soft-focus effect on your skin. ‘The Liquid Luminzer’ is perfect to throw into my handbag for on-the-go glow touch-ups.”
