The seventies are well and truly back this season and Napoleon Perdis looked to two icons of the decade, Jane Birkin and Cher, as his inspiration for the stunning beauty look we saw on our Autumn Winter 15 Fashion Launch runway. Just before the show started, we went backstage with Napoleon where he took us through the look, step by step.
Start by spritzing the face with Auto Pilot Moisture Mist and massage Auto Pilot Hydrating Milk Cleanser into the skin to purify and prep. Using a tissue, pat off excess cleanser before revitalising and hydrating the complexion with Auto Pilot Napoleon Complex Skin Renewal Serum. The final step in preparing the skin is to apply Auto Pilot Pre-Foundation Skin Primer for base perfection.
Apply a coat of Mesmer-Eyes Mascara to your lashes and then conceal any skin imperfections with The One Concealer. For a light-weight veil of luminous skin coverage, apply Sheer Genius Liquid Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20 before gently contouring the hollows of the cheeks with Light Switch Luminizer Palette Bronze. Complete the base by highlighting the high points of the face (the forehead, bridge of the nose and the top of the cheekbones) with Light Switch Luminizer Palette in Gold and then lightly set the the face with Camera Finish Powder Foundation.
Now it’s on to the eyes, where we begin by grooming and defining the brows with Browtox and the Browtox Grooming Brush. Contour the eyes by applying Color Disc Amazon Jungle, Color Disc Trench Coat and Light Switch Luminizer Palette in Pink Ice to the eyelid before applying Eye Bright Inner Rim Eyeliner to the waterline to open up and brighten the eye. Define the lash lines by using Angled Chisel Brush 9a to wash China Doll Gel Eyeliner Yin along the upper and lower lash lines, extending at the outer corners of the eye. For wide-eyed beauty, apply Lashes Zinnia to the upper lash line and Lashes Cherry Blossom to the lower lash line. Finally, apply a second coat of Mesmer-Eyes Mascara to your upper lashes, then carefully coat your bottom lashes, separating and lengthening with each coat.
Finish the look with a sweep Auto Pilot Tinted Lip Balm Lilly over the lips. Want more color? Dress the lips with Mattetastick Lipstick Sophia, then tap Light Switch Luminizer Palette Rose onto the centre of the lips and just like that, you’re done!
