Makeup artists fell down a rabbit hole of colour, texture and pattern this season. “There’s a creativity in beauty now that feels more like art than makeup,” says Romero Jennings, M.A.C Cosmetics’ director of makeup artistry. Liner—like Tom Pecheux’s Picasso-inspired black etchings at Altuzarra or the angular iterations at Akris—was precise and deliberate. Peter Philips’ prismatic “posh girl goes to Burning Man” shadow at Fendi was customized for each model. The takeaway: Colour outside the lines at will.
