Napoleon Perdis Artistry Squad painted, powdered and perfected behind the scenes as the Official Makeup Partner of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia. The brand’s makeup artists took their skills backstage and delivered the looks for the catwalk shows for key Australian designers.


Fresh, luminous skin was a major trend this year. The key to nailing the look? It’s all about hydration infusion! The hydrating and revitalising Anti-Pollution Refining Skin-Fusion Milk Toning Essence was used both under and over makeup for an effortless, dewy and radiant finish.

Christopher Esber

Inspo: The makeup to complement Christopher Esber’s design is fresh, artistic and textural. And what do we mean by texture? We mean that it’s layered colour, layered skin, layered diversity, layered across the board as we really celebrate that as a brand. The makeup is 80s retro inspired with a modern, dynamic twist.


Next Gen

Inspo: Radiant, bronzed, warm and wearable. A look that is totally achievable for the makeup savvy or those just dabbling.

Active Collective

Inspo: Sun-kissed, sculpted, hyper-real perfection with luminous accents. This look was more bronzed and dewy, with models being spritzed with Auto Pilot Moisture Mist right before going on stage for a chic “just worked out” look.


Inspo: Healthy, dreamy and dewy with creamy accents: a soft, smokey look accentuated with a pop of shimmer in the inner corners of the eyes. Cheeks were flushed and lips glossy for a natural glow.

Alice McCall – Weekend Edition

Inspo: Soft, glowing and whimsical, this romantic makeup look is inspired by fantasy and femininity with a hint of 60s flair.

V Major

Inspo: The makeup here is all about complementing the boho, sporty-glam collection. Minimal, fresh skins with a glossy highlight on cheek bones, a touch of white sparkle on the inner corners of eyes and hydrated lips.

The growth of social media has given rise to influencer marketing, now one of the fastest growing categories in advertising and projected to be a $5-10 billion market by 2020*. A larger percentage of the advertising dollar being invested into this component of the marketing mix naturally means greater pressure on marketers to deliver meaningful results from this medium.
