Held in Rome on July 17th, Creative Director Alessandro Michele’s Epilogue collection presentation was a unique show, the final act of a playful experimentation aimed at reversing the traditional fashion rules and perspectives. The Epilogue’s beauty looks reflected this investigation and delivered an original take on makeup, in line with Gucci Beauty’s manifesto of freedom and self-expression.

The looks, modelled by the Gucci design office team, were created using the following eye products: Mascara L’Obscur – a buildable mascara created with the ultimate ultra-rich creamy formulation for customized application; Éclat De Beauté Effet Lumière – a multi-use gel gloss adding a transparent veil of high shine power to eyes, lips and cheeks; and the new Crayon Définition Sourcils – a versatile tool for drawing and filling in the brows, with a powdery texture and easy-to-blend formula.

Other Gucci Beauty products were used to complement the looks, such as the new Poudre de Beauté Mat Naturel – a buildable face powder that creates a unified, naturally smooth complexion. Various formulas of Rouge à Lèvres lipsticks were also featured, along with the latest addition, Vernis à Ongles, a long-lasting nail polish available in a selection of vibrant shades.

The standout beauty looks by Gucci Global Makeup Artist Thomas de Kluyver, photographed by Mark Peckmezian, included:
