Chanel’s Global creative makeup and color designer, Lucia Pica answers some questions regarding the beauty segment of Chanel Cruise 2018/19 fashion show.
What was your source of inspiration for this makeup?
The print of some of the dresses with a futuristic vibe inspired me. So to convey this modernity and follow Karl Lagerfeld‘s brief I created a strong blue mat graphic eye and kept the skin super fresh, balmy with a touch of glimmer. I wanted the girls look to be, simple not simplistic, strong without being aggressive, elegant and modern.
Can you describe the fashion show makeup?
Eyebrow were brushed up and not too defined in a boyish way. Lips were nude and a slight peachy color was applied on the cheeks, quite high on the apples of the cheekbones to make the girls look fresher. Apply “Stylo Ombre et Contour – Contour Graphique” underneath to get the graphic shape, then add the mat eye shadow powder of “Les 4 Ombres – Quiet Revolution” in blue navy mixed with a touch of midnight blue on top for depth and to enhance the intensity of the color. The cream pencil “Stylo Ombre et Contour – Contour Graphique” will make the powder shadow stay on longer and look stronger.
Do you have any professional tips and tricks to share with us?
Always wear eyebrow gel! Use cheek color (from the “Palette Essentielle”) high on the apple of the cheeks to create a fresh look on your skin. Use “Palette Essentielle” concealer where needed and highlighter on the cheekbones bridge of the nose and cupid of the lips for softly sculpting your face.
Is there a product that you particularly enjoyed using for this makeup look?
Yes indeed. “Stylo Ombre et Contour N°14 – Contour Graphique” and “Les 4 Ombres N° 312 – Quiet Revolution”.
