​The makeup at Carl Kapp was inspired by creating contrasts that complement. Think Helmut Newton and the way he flirted with strong masculine and feminine elements; the way he pitted them against each other to create a perfectly dangerous harmony.

​When asked about the makeup he created for Carl Kapp, Napoleon Perdis said: “The makeup here is kept super soft to balance the blunt force of the hair. Features are subtly enhanced by contouring with stains and creams; it’s about maximising the bone structure. Coverage was applied only where needed to let the real skin shine through. The result: a parade of gorgeously handsome women!”

Pair this makeup with a blunt, severe fringe and wear it with flowing fabrics in vibrant colours to recreate the mood at Carl Kapp’s MBFWA show.
