Lianna and Napoleon Perdis backstage at MBFW Australia 2017

The Napoleon Perdis Makeup Artistry Squad will be out in full-force next week creating makeup looks for all the IMG shows at MBFW Australia as well as at Camilla’s opening show for the Weekend Edition.

In between the Sydney shows, the squad will also “educate the public on how to achieve a flawless makeup look by going back to basics”.

Company founder and CEO Napoleon Perdis says the company (which was a sponsor at the first MBFW Australia in 1996 and is the official makeup partner at this year’s event) has always been passionate about supporting the local fashion industry.

“Fashion and beauty go hand in hand,” he says.

“I can’t wait to bring cutting-edge, next-gen makeup looks to the runway this year.

“I’m so looking forward to working with other Aussie brands and adding my beauty spin to the shows.”

He says the company will be highlighting three make-up trends at next week’s event:

‘Natural’ skin: “Skin that looks like skin, but both beautifully radiant and naturally matte in all the right places. We’ll be working skincare and primers to get the skin texture to perfection before adding a gentle wash of concealer or foundation, only where needed, then setting it on the t-zone hotspots with a soft-focus blurring powder.”

Glossy lips: “Gloss is back for the lips; after years of matter-than-matte lips the beloved lip gloss is making a return. Think luscious, juicy lips, particularly in sheer glassy shades, nudes and mauves.”

Summer colour: “Whilst nude still holds strong, colour will be huge this summer. It’s about simple, uncomplicated washes of colour against a super clean canvas. It’s a strong slick of purple or green across the eye or a crisp, bold orange lip with everything else completely nude and clean.”

Napoleon’s daughter, 18-year-old Lianna Perdis (model and Napoleon Perdis brand ambassador) will also be appearing on the runway at MBFW this year.

Last year she appeared at the event for the first time – closing the show for Christopher Esber.

Napoleon says the company will undoubtedly continue its sponsorship of MBFW for many years to come.

“MBFWA allows us to collaborate with other Aussie designers and showcase our new products to the industry, which ultimately flows through to the consumer,” he says.

“Our role as the official makeup partner for the premium Australian fashion event is a wonderful endorsement of the brand’s place within the fashion and beauty industry.”
