Spring/summer ’10 Napoleon Perdis makeup – from catwalk to you

Nikki Parkinson Beauty 5 Comments

Catwalk makeup is meant to be dramatic, to have a sense of the theatrical.  Afterall, if we’re sitting down to watch a fashion festival parade, then we’re looking for a show, to be entertained.

The makeup looks by Napoleon Perdis makeup artists at Mercedes-Benz Brisbane Fashion Festival certainly entertained but {here’s the bonus} they actually inspired as well.

These are my two favourite looks from the parade – while not the most extreme produced – they can easily be adapted for real-world beauty looks.

1. Sunday Mail Group Show, Sunday, August 8, 2010

Inspiration: Soft, pastel pretty tones were used to emulate a young sweet mood. Blended citrus colours complemented with a statement cheek, creating a modern, innocent feel. Keeping the skin fresh with a fresh minimal base lets the sweeps of pastel matte shades speak for themselves. A blended look suitable for all designers involved from Romance Was Born to Nicola Fenetti.

Key products used: Auto Pilot Pre-foundation Primer, Color Disc Wild Sunflower, Color Disc Cherrybomb, Pro Palette Concealer, DeVine Goddess Lipstick Nikki

What I’ll definitely be embracing: soft lips

2.  Mercedes-Benz Group Show 2, Saturday, August 7

Inspiration: This look has a romantic feel to it with the blend of warm tones to the face. It represents a mysterious yet elegant woman that draws interest through plum and pink smoked eyes and beautifully flushed cheeks.

Key Products Used: Auto Pilot Napoleon Complex skin renewal serum; Boudoir Mist Spray Foundation; Pro Palette Concealer; Mesmer-eyes Mascara; Cheek to Chic Blush Duo #3; Lip Patrol in President Rose

What I’ll definitely be embracing: pink contoured cheeks
