Backstage Makeup Looks At The FW24 Carolina Herrera Show

For the new season, Wes Gordon’s designs for Carolina Herrera experimented with colour blocking and new ways of dividing using colourways on the body, something that was echoed in the makeup looks for the FW24 show.

The make for the show was inspired by pop art history – three screen-printed portraits of Herrera created in late 70s New York by the legendary Andy Warhol, which show the young designer with a lush red lip and colour-clashing eyeshadows — a bold look that trailblazing makeup artist Sam Visser has recreated for the House’s Fall Winter 2024 show.

Opting for a literal take, models’ eyelids were saturated with a wash of either violet, turquoise or pink eyeshadow and finished with a few coats of Herrera Beauty’s Fabulous Eyes Waterproof mascara 01, for 24 hours of extra-black definition and volume.

Next up was that famous red pout, created here using the Fabulous Kiss Matte Lipstick in Carolina Red 310, the House’s signature lipstick shade. Delivering an intense colour payoff in a single swipe, this long-wearing formula has a powdery, high-intensity velvet finish with full coverage pigmentation. 

Finally, the look was finished off with a touch of the cream-to-powder Fabulous Skin Highlighter in Rosé Hour 02 pressed onto the high points of the face for a gentle lit-from-within glow.

A pop culture moment translated into a makeup look fit for the modern day.
