Pink eyes, colored eyeliner and shiny skin: East meets Sardinia. And it is immediately love in the beauty backstage of Antonio Marras SS 2020
Two islands, Japan and Sardinia, which meet. A love that is born and that finds a passionate synthesis in inlays and in combinations of colors (pink, red, beige) different from the usual: it is the new chapter in the storybook of Antonio Marras, made up of narratives that displace, conquer and remain in the memory.
In this romantic tale the protagonists are a Japanese princess, Shiro, with shiny skin and an adventurous attitude, and a Sardinian shepherd, Baingio. Theirs is a difficult love but, as in all fairy tales, it then leads to a happy ending.
The elegance of a princess who wants to visit the world, refusing to stay forever in her homeland, is enhanced by the choice of original colors and textures even in the make-up. Like every year, also for the SS 2020 Antonio Marras he couldn't choose a better partner than Tom Pecheux for MAC Cosmetics.
The beauty look of the show starts with a question: «What did Shiro do during the long journey between two so distant lands?». "She opened her eyes and caught with her eyes all the colors of the different cultures she liked most - replies the key artist backstage - without forgetting her homeland".
«I preferred a delicate pink, a gentle pink because the protagonist is a princess, to color the eyelids up to the temples. It was, however, important to work on the mix of tones and textures - continues Pecheux - so I chose a eyeliner between blue and green for the upper rhyme and a red line in the lower one: it is the red that represents Japan and, more generally, all Asian culture. The models' skin is natural and luminous, while the lips are brushed with a baby pink shade, similar to that used for the eyes ».
