The makeup at the Antonio Marras SS2016 in Milan wan AMAZING. And of course Tom Pecheux, who headed the M.A.C makeup team, was in charge of the makeup look. Watch this video to know more about the makeup, how it was created, how to copy it. Get ready for a true makeup lesson. This is what Tom Pecheux told us:
I did a very playful make-up. It is a kind of surrealistic make-up with a lot of references. The pink has a kind of youthful, dolly feeling. The metallic represents industry, technology. The black dots stand for the surrealism and the lips are more like a grown up person, very feminine.
Antonio is taking us on a long journey. The reference was an Armenian artist. Armenia went through a war and many people had to escape their country. Through this collection Antonio explains that no matter where you are in the world, no matter how much you embrace other cultures, you are born in a place and it is your DNA. And at the end it become a mix of your DNA and all the other cultures you embrace. That is what I express with this make-up.
What can we, ‘normal girls’, take from this make-up?
Everything. It is a fashion show so we have to pass on a message and the message is powerful. But maybe on a regular day you can do this look. You can do it also without the dots, or without the lips and keep only one or two elements of this make-up.
We have to remember that fashion is playful. When it comes to make-up we can do whatever we want. It is a nice way to express who you are. Or how you want to be seen by other people.
And at the end of the day you take a piece of cotton and make-up remover and it is gone. And the day after you can play somebody else. That is what it is about. Do, experiment, try and play, enjoy. Make-up as fashion is a serious business but serious means that you can do it with humor and fun.
