Introducing Chanel Byzance Makeup Collection

The theme of the collection is a great inspiration on it’s own. The links and associations with Chanel are rich and plenty. Karl gave Sam and me a sketch giving us a rough idea of the direction he wanted for the look, from then the tone was set.

Karl also showed us the world-famous mosaic portrait of Theodora, the Empress of the Byzantine Empire Mosaic from the Saint-Vital de Ravenne Basilica, which very naturally became the inspiration for the show’s makeup. The portrait gave me a focus point: the red eyeshadow/liner that she wears on the arch of her eyebrows. This look is all about light and rich textures. The choreography between gold, bronze, black and red can be easily personalized according to the desires of each woman.
