Here’s a peek behind the scenes at Chanel’s 2018/19 Cruise Show Makeup. Lucia Pica – Makeup and Colour Director, Chanel talks us through the inspiration and looks.

The inspiration

“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 matte 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.” 

The fashion show makeup

“Eyebrows were brushed up and not too defined in a boyish way. Lips were nude and a slight peachy colour was applied on the cheeks, quite high on the apples of the cheekbones to make the girls look fresher. Stylo Ombre et Contour – Contour Graphique was applied underneath to get the graphic shape, then adding the matte eyeshadow powder of Les 4 Ombres – Quiet Revolution in navy blue mixed with a touch of midnight blue on top for depth and to enhance the intensity of the colour.” 

Professional tips and tricks to share

“Always wear eyebrow gel! Use cheek colour (from the Palette Essentielle) high on the apple of the cheeks to create a fresh look on the skin. Use Palette Essentielle concealer where needed and highlighter on the cheekbones, bridge of the nose and cupid of the lips for softly sculpting the 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.”
