Eye-popping eye shadow and bold hair accessories had pride of place at the Japanese leg of Chanel‘s widely followed Métiers d’Art Paris Cosmopolite 2016/17 show on Wednesday night. Lily Rose Depp, Vittoria Ceretti, Alisha Nesvat and Tokyo-born actress Nana Komatsu put their best faces forward with refreshed make up looks.

Eyes were the focal point of Chanel’s latest runway event. Models’ eyelids were accentuated with a bold sweep of highly pigmented white eye shadow for an ultra eye-opening effect. Chanel’s palette sourcils was applied to brushed-up brows for extra emphasis.

Recreate blinding lids with Chanel‘s Tissé Smoky n°246 eyeshadow quad and a touch of ombre premiere in sable n°28 and noir satin n°26.

Matte lips were de rigueur with nude shades as firm favorites thanks to a touch of Rouge Allure ink in ‘Amoureux’ and ‘Séduisant’ and Rouge Coco balm. New Chanel muse Nana Komatsu stole the show with a statement raspberry lip.

Chanel’s runway makeup staples included a host of must-haves from the ‘Les Beiges’ range such as the belle mine naturelle powder and perfection corrector. For the replica show in Japan, hair genius Sam McKnight kept the hair focus soft and romantic. The models’ decidedly ‘just-woke-up-like-this’ hairstyles were jazzed up with veils, large Chanel silk and tulle flowers, little crowns of roses in black, navy, white and coral.

Sistine Stallone wore delicate posy-like hair accessories in Chanel classic shades of black and white to match the monochrome tweed twill of her quilted knit jacket. In November of last year, Chanel and Fendi‘s in-house hair genius published his first book—”Hair by Sam McKnight.” An inspiring read for any hair enthusiast, the book provides a back catalogue of Karl Lagerfeld approved ponytails and extravagant hairstyles that McKnight has conjured up for Chanel’s major runway events.

Chanel ambassador Caroline de Maigret was also among the guests attending the replica Paris Cosmopolite show in Tokyo. Until June 15, visitors heading to Chanel’s Ginza boutique can get a sneak peak at the model, music producer and writer’s wardrobe essentials with a special in-store installation and photo booth animation.
