For the CHANEL Fall-Winter 2019/2020 Haute Couture collection, the House’s Global Creative Make Up and Colour Designer Lucia Pica departed from her signature bold colour based styling in favour of an elegantly minimal beauty look. Paired with the stunning pieces Virginie Viard showed, the beauty look complemented the collection to perfection.
The glowing fresh-faced beauty look featured luminous skin (another Pica signature), a chic linear black on the lash line, and cheeks and lips glimmering with the tiniest hint of a glow. The look was complimented by sleek simple hair that was held back at the nape of the neck in a ponytail tied with a simple black band. I’ll let Madam Pica speak for herself on the subject of her inspiration and execution in the interview below. You can also scroll down for a full breakdown of the products used, and shop them in the widget below. You can rest assured that I’ll absolutely be recreating this beauty look myself!
What were your sources of inspiration for this makeup? What brief did Virginie Viard give you?
The women are in a library, luxurious elegant readers. I thought it would be interesting to give them a really strong eyebrow with a masculine sense in the inner part and then an elongation which gives them a sense of authority and confidence.
Can you describe the fashion show makeup?
The skin is soft and translucent with L’EAU DE TEINT and la PALETTE ESSENTIELLE where needed, BAUME ESSENTIEL is added high on the cheekbones.
I brushed up the eyebrows with the STYLO SOURCILS WATERPROOF and filled with upwards strokes from the inner part. I have drawn an eyebrow liner starting from the middle of the eye. I elongated it out straight to the outer corner of the eye.
There are graphic elements into the eyebrow and eyeliner.
I wanted the feeling of the girl to be strong and confident with an authority feel to her.
There is BAUME ESSENTIELon the lips, so the face and finish is quite translucent and bare with a transparent shine on the cheek bones.
Mascara is applied on curled lashes on the top only.
Do you have any professional tips and tricks to share with us?
Use the canceler of the PALETTE ESSENTIELLEaround the mouth if the girl has natural color on the lips.
Is there a product that you particularly enjoyed using for this makeup look?
The STYLO SOURCILS WATERPROOF is my favorite product of the look as it helped me create powerful masculine/feminine eyebrows.
Skin was prepared with HYDRA BEAUTY MICRO GEL YEUX, HYDRA BEAUTY MICRO SÉRUM and LA SOLUTION 10 DE CHANEL.
