MAC @ Rodarte
M∙A∙C Senior Artist, Chantel Miller designed the Maori-inspired geometric tattoo makeup seen on the runways at the Rodarte Spring/Summer 2010 runway show today. Chantel worked in close collaboration with designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy and key makeup artist James Kaliardos (for M∙A∙C) over the course of 4 weeks to create the full-sleeve, half-sleeve and neck tattoo designs, which are meant to evoke the feeling of a futuristic tribe.
“The idea for the tattoos stemmed from Kate and Laura’s desire to celebrate makeup as art not only for the face, but also for the body in a similar way that Indian culture uses henna. They want women to look at makeup as an accessory for an outfit the way you would a bracelet or a necklace,” said Chantel Miller.

The morning of the show, Chantel, who specializes in body painting, spent 4 intensive hours with a team of 40 artists hand painting the elaborate body art. Each model received a customized combination of the designs depending on which look they were wearing in the show. There were; 4 different full-sleeve, 1 neck and 8 half-sleeve designs. To get the look Chantel recommends trying a combination of the below products. She says, “Application is key to creating a body-art look like this, so the brushes play an essential part.”
- PRO Micronized Airbrush in Black Black
- Brush 252
- Brush 242
- PRO Mixing Medium/Alcohol Base
- Liquidlast Liner in Point Black
