AFW 2024 backstage report: BLANCA Studio

Embryolisse x BLANCA Studio backstage report – Thursday May 16, 2024

Sydney-based BLANCA Studio, led by Ana Piteira, is a contemporary ready-to-wear label that brings vibrant hues and vintage inspired silhouettes to the modern wardrobe.

Designing pieces that transition seasons, adding versatility and comfort that will have you reaching into your wardrobe again and again for all occasions – think oversized button-downs shirts, statement collars and timeless blazers and jackets. The overarching aesthetic is derived from a meeting of vintage and modern style. 

The look

From directing Fashion Week to representing beauty brands around the world, Susan Lilian is a highly sought-after Australian make-up artist. With 15 years in the industry, Susan’s well-rounded body of work with fashion, commercial and film speaks for itself. 

Susan created a look for the BLANCA show that featured glowing, lit from within skin.

"The sheerest coverage was applied so I heavily relied on skin prep using my favourite, Embryolisse, to make the skin look absolutely radiant," she shared.

"I prepared the skin with Poudre de Lait Exfoliante, Eau de Beaute Rosamelis, Hydra-Serum, Lait-Creme Concentre and finished off with the Active Eye Contour Care."

"Each product was massaged into the skin to create blood flow to the face."

"My secret weapon for this look was the Cicalisse Creme for glossy cheeks."

"The perfect body product for the day was the Lait-Creme Fluide. It's not too thick for the runway, it's light-weight and hydrating," said Susan.

Get the look

Step 1. Remove any impurities for a clean base using Embryolisse’s Micellar Water. 

Step 2. Prep the skin with the Exfoliating Milk Powder to remove all dead skin cells for an ultra smooth base.

Step 3. Generously spritz the Rosamelis Toning Face Mist over the face to firm, rehydrate and refine the skin. 

Step 4. Use the Active Eye Contour Cream to de-puff the eye area, and the Hydra- Serum on the rest of the face to plump and hydrate.

Step 5. Apply a generous amount of Lait-Crème Concentre to the entire face to prime the skin and add a touch of Cicalisse Cream to the cheeks for an extra- glossy look. 

Step 6. Use Lait-Crème Fluide on the neck, shoulders and décolletage to moisturise and add a glow to the skin.
