Métiers d’art 2018/19 Paris-New York show was held at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. In this blog post you will see backstage beauty images and a selection of images with Lucia Pica, Global Creative Designer for Makeup and Colour at CHANEL, who did the makeup for this show.
Lucia Pica describes the makeup for the show as “fresh, graphic and tells the story of the collection.”
“The inspiration was clearly Egyptian and I wanted to give a more abstract futuristic feel. The black and white are the beginning of colors, blue and gold were picked from the collection as per Karl Lagerfeld’s request. I proposed a few looks and he really liked the feeling of the one chosen for this collection.” Lucia Pica

“I used the PALETTE ESSENTIELLE for a fresh yet flawless face. I applied the eyeliner with LES PINCEAUX DE CHANEL Eyeliner Brush, through back and forth movements to get a strong black effect and finish the end into a very thin line to give the impression of movement.” -Lucia Pica
Backstage Défilé CHANEL Métiers d’Art 2018/19 Paris-New York
It is a pleasure to introduce you to CHANEL’s Fall/Winter 2018 Collection!
APOTHEOSIS, LE MAT DE CHANEL
Having mined such rich territories as colour, deconstruction and artifice in her nine CHANEL beauty collections thus far, Lucia Pica, CHANEL Global Creative Makeup and Colour Designer, considers texture for the Fall/Winter 2018 Collection. Tapping the emotional depth and visual intensity offered by matte surfaces, the selection of eye and lip colours in APOTHEOSIS, LE MAT DE CHANEL evokes a uniquely feminine sensibility – one of inner quietude, serenity and self-possession.

“When I close my eyes and think of Naples, these are the colors I see…” -Lucia Pica CHANEL Global Creative Makeup and color designer.
Chanel’s NEAPOLIS: NEW CITY Spring/Summer 2018 Collection is very fun, sophisticated and beautiful! I love all the colours and textures. I really love each piece in this collection and feel that one piece compliments the other and works really well together. No matter how you mix and match each piece, the makeup works harmoniously like a beautiful melody. The collection is called Neapolis – New City.
“For Spring/ Summer 2018, Lucia Pica heeds the siren’s call of home to return to the city of her birth anew. Here, Naples’ ever-changing landscape, layered with history, meaning and metaphor, provides the inspiration for colors, moods and techniques that offer a warm, rich and unexpectedly Mediterranean approach for the house at once antique and utterly contemporary.” -CHANEL
I would like to share a few pieces from the NEAPOLIS COLLECTION, the beautiful pieces are as follows:
430 FOSCHIA ROSA
This blush is so perfect for the spring and summer. I absolutely love a pop of colour on the cheeks. It’s the perfect pink that gives the complexion a beautiful healthy look.
Les 9 Ombres Edition N1 AFFRESCO (Limited Edition)
I have a feeling this palette will sell out in minutes!
This palette is breathtaking and is one of my favourite pieces of the Neapolis collection.
“My hope is that women will be open and spontaneous with the colors…they are buildable, so you can wear a subtle wash of color or create a more intense effect.” LUCIA PICA
Lucia pica says “All the elements of Naples are in here”, This palette is a play on texture as well as colour. There are three matte, satin and high-shine shades. All really soft and blendable. The colours range from brighter to more muted tones, reflecting Naples and its myriad influences. Peachy beige is tempered by a subtle mink brown. A bright gold sings out beside a dark rusty-red brown.
STYLO YEUX WATERPROOF
939 NERO VULCANICO
I really love this grey eyeliner. It’s waterproof and really compliments all the pieces in this collection. It works so well with all the eyeshadows. It gives the eyes the attention they need but doesn’t take away from all other aspects of this collection. The pencil goes on smoothly and doesn’t tug on the delicate skin. It’s a wonderful waterproof eyeliner that lasts really long.
ROUGE ALLURE VELVET
*65 L’ARISTOCRATICA (Limited Edition)
The Rouge Allure Velvet lipstick feels so beautiful and comfortable on the lips. This colour is perfect for the Spring and Summer. I absolutely love the fact that it’s not too pink, not too nude and not too peach. It’s just the right colour. I feel this colour will look amazing on all skin tones just like the entire collection.
ROUGE ALLURE INK
I adore all Rouge Allure INK Lipsticks. This one in particular is bright and breathtaking! A showstopper! I love how vibrant and bold this colour is. Hot! Hot! Hot!
ROUGE COCO GLOSS 786 SIBYLLA
If you want a lovely pout and shine, Rouge Coco Gloss in 786 Sibylla will give you just that! I love this formula and colour. It’s the perfect pink and the formula is not sticky or gloopy. It is just right!
POUDRE A LEVRES (Limited Edition)
410 ROSSO POMPEIANO
The Poudre a Levres makes me oh so happy! I adore getting the “just kissed” look. It’s the loveliest colour and so perfect in every way. I love using my finger to dip into the very moisturizing and hydrating lip balm and then with another finger into the powder. So satisfying! You can add as much or as little as you like. It’s so much fun and feels amazing on the lips. Not drying at all and the colour is wow!
588 NUVOLA ROSA
590 VERDE PASTELLO
I really love Le Vernis by CHANEL. They are my favourite nail polishes ever. They last very long and the colours are beautiful! This collection has four new colours and the two that I have are Nuvola Rosa and Verde Pastello. They remind me of desserts like macarons which are my favourite by the way. These two colours are so perfect for spring and summer and I love how fun they are. I’m so happy to see bright and fun colours!
Each piece in this collection works together perfectly and I adore how fresh and happy the colours are. They are very fun and vibrant! Thank you so much to CHANEL for the beautiful samples. I’m truly grateful.
Here is a makeup look that I created with this collection.
