What’s beauty blogger John Mayer up to these days? It’s been four years since the singer last swatched Chanel lipsticks on his guitar. His last smoky-eye tutorial was two years ago. But someone text him quick because Chanel’s latest runway beauty look is just begging for a “Re-creating the Runway Look” video.
For Chanel’s spring 2021 show, Chanel’s global creative makeup and color designer Lucia Pica created a halo-ed beauty look so simple that “you can do it at home,” as the influencers say. Most makeup artists feature a range of different colors in their smoky-eye tutorials, but Pica restrained herself to two, mixing together the gray from the Les 4 Ombres Blurry Grey palette and the black shade in Modern Glamour and blending them to just above the eye socket. The look was sort of inspired by ’90s Winona Ryder, she told Vogue UK, suggesting that adding a layer of concealer on the lids before the eye shadow helps set the shadow and make the colors more true. A pretty rose nude called Modern (from Chanel Beauty’s Rouge Allure Velvet Extrême lipsticks) went on the lips.
Pica called the look “blurry, matte and pristine.” Well, as shown in his previous tutorials, Mayer has already mastered two out of three of those things with his camerawork and his quad of eye shadows. So he has to work on just one more thing and he’ll be ready to make a comeback.
