CHANEL Cruise 2016/17 Cuba backstage beauty: At a glance

CHANEL Cruise 2017 makeup

Let's face it, there's just something about CHANEL.

Whether considering its clothing, accessories or makeup — each and every release from the French fashion house catches our attention. And the latest release is no exception ...

CHANEL captured headlines on May 3 for its historic Cruise 2017 collection show, which took place at the Paseo del Prado in Havana, Cuba.

The collection was said to be inspired by Cuba in general, but also specifically by the "guayabera", a style of traditional Cuban shirt that has front pockets, shoulder tabs and pleats.

But it wasn't just the clothes on the runway that grabbed our attention. It was also the perfect hot-holiday makeup sported by the models.

The makeup was soft, yet also subtly dramatic thanks to dark, naturally shaped brows and an almost orange-pink lip colour.

So, we got the inside scoop (plus a whole slew of backstage beauty pics!) straight from the source.

Because, you know, who doesn't want to look like a CHANEL runway model on a Monday (or any day, really!)? :P

Take a look.
