The Schiaparelli Fall/Winter 2016-17 haute couture fashion show was themed around circus and fantasy. With such a theme, the makeup could have been really dazzling or dramatic, but it was refreshingly light and pastel-hued.
Not a bad decision, considering the subdued beauty looks balanced out the whimsical and flamboyant outfits. It was also a very contrasting addition to the seasonal trends as a whole, because we’re seeing so much of black liner and black eyeshadow on the other runways!
The makeup focused on creating a “fair face”, perhaps fantasy-inspired, with little blush and not much else. The nude lips were paired with pale orange eyeshadow.
The models wore hair tightly tied into chignons at the back, knotted neatly without a hair out of place. That nipped in the bud our dreams of wearing day-dreamy outfits with Alice-in-the-Wonderland-like carefree hair!
