    The inspiration for the look was famous mosaic portrait of Theodora, the Empress of the Byzantine Empire Mosaic from the Saint-Vital de Ravenne Basilica. She lived in the 6th century and was empress of Byzantium from 527-548, probably having been the most influential and powerful woman in the empire's history.

    “The portrait gave me a focus point : the red eye shadow/liner that she wears on the arch of her eyebrows. This look is all about light and rich textures. The choreography between gold, bronze, black and red can be easily personalized according to the desires of each woman.” (Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of Chanel Makeup)
