Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia is in full swing, and Australian makeup maestro Napoleon Perdis is creating head turning makeup looks to accompany fashion from Sydney’s most in-demand designers. Their fresh approach to global style places MBFWA shows among the most anticipated of the spring/summer season.
Toni Maticevski – Like Toni’s exclusive collection, this is considered bespoke beauty. Each girl wears a customized look, but with one key commonality – luminescence. A contrast of textures and materials, this is truly tactile glamour in tones of sepia and balanced by a blend of structural textures.
Otherworldly beautiful and desirable without being pretty. Fiercely feminine and slightly morbid. Think the beautiful dead.
“The skin should sing! It’s expensive, polished and radiant but not pearlescent; skin takes on an almost wax-like or putt-like look. I’ve used cream textures and tones of sepia to highlight the eyes and lips. It’s truly seamless beauty.”
Gail Sarronda — The beautiful gothic. Twisted and slightly dark, she’s caught in a style moment that perfectly blends a 1920’s nostalgia with a mod nod to the 1960’s.
Doll-esque dark romanticism. Think: a female Charlie Chaplin starring in silent horror films.
“I love the abstract elements of this look and how it makes the weird wearable. The combination of the deep grape, slightly clown-ish lip and elegant lash [Napoleon Perdis False Lashes in Poinsettia] works perfectly with the porcelain-doll textured skin. It’s as surreal as it is fab! I’ve mixed Equinox China Doll (black) with DeVine Goddess in Aphrodite and Eye Pencil in Purple Reign to create the perfect plum shade for the lips.”
