​The brief that was given to the Napoleon Perdis team when designing these makeup looks was the romance of well-loved garments, losing oneself in the feel of a fabric. Eastern traditions that celebrate a harmony of the inner journey.

​The mood that Napoleon Perdis was asked to channel through these makeup designs was a feeling of timeless femininity and angelic grace.

​When asked about these looks, Napoleon said: “There are so many fun, beautiful elements at play here. The glitter eye is just divine, soft and feminine, perfect not just for a bride but for any day you want to feel like a goddess. And then there’s the amazing aquamarine which provides a fab, summery take on the traditional cat’s eye. Take your pick!”
