There's nothing quite like a new, shiny Chanel makeup collection.

After being tantalised by the animated teaser back in January, we finally have the full Lancôme by Alber Elbaz collection for you to feast your eyes on. And that's just the feature Elbaz wanted to focus on, by dressing up four of the best-selling eyeshadow palettes and mascaras from the luxury beauty brand. "The real theme running through the collection is the eyes and roundness forms," Elbaz explains. "The bottles are so fabulously rounded that they were my inspiration. I wanted to create rounded shapes with a hint of humour." The collection hits Lancôme counters next month, but you can see everything up close, when you keep clicking!
You might recognise her name from previous posts on the miracle that is Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream and her work backstage at Romance Was Born during MBFWA, but we really have saved the best for last. Val Garland is one of the most sought-after makeup artists on the planet, having painted Kate Moss's face on more than one occasion, along with Lady Gaga. She's best-known for her eccentric runway work for designers including Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood, but we thought we'd take things back to basics during our chat with the Mac Cosmetics makeup pro. We're running our interview with Val in two parts, so stay tuned for the next installment. For now — click, click.

Not content to be the gorgeous face of just one beauty brand, model Cara Delevingne has signed on to be the face of Yves Saint Laurent Beauté's new Baby Doll mascara, according to WWD. The new formula, which will premiere exclusively on yslbeautyus.com on March 20, is the latest addition to Yves Saint Laurent Beauté's Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils franchise. At launch, it will be available in black, blue, brown, and violet.
Cara, who recently walked in the Saint Laurent Autumn Winter 2013 show, appears in the '60s-inspired campaign donning an all-black Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane ensemble. The single- and double-page advertisement was shot by Terry Richardson, but the model was recently snapped by another famous face. Karl Lagerfeld stepped behind the lens to capture Cara for Melissa Magazine, WWD reports. Cara also recently signed on to be the face of Burberry Body Tender.
