Sending a ginormous to-scale cruise ship sailing into the Grand Palais for its Cruise 2019 show, Chanel officially outdid themselves.

Setting the tone for a marine-themed Cruise collection, Karl's army of supermodel sailors marched onto the ship Chanel decked out in signature tweed berets, white tights and more than a few Breton striped tees.

But look past Bella and Gigi's berets and the 300 ft 'La Pausa' liner, and you'll see the make-up and hair was all about that aquatic life as well.

Created by Chanel make-up pro Lucia Pica, the fresh-faced make-up saw models with dewy cheekbones, seemingly freshly spritzed with ocean spray and contrasting OTT graphic navy blue eyeliner. Well, when in the navy...

A bold Fendi SS18-esque marine twist on the classic French feline flick, this is fuss-free eyeliner we can get on board with. Get it, get on board... Sorry.

Declaring overly delicate and fiddly cat eyes officially over, Pica's matte dome of liquid liner just saved our beauty routine literal hours. Rounded on the inner corner and pointed on the outer edge, Lucia tailored the look to each model's unique eye shape and swapped the classic black for a timeless chic navy.

The best bit? Its Brigitte Bardot-approved, which means our French girl cool just went up a good few notches.

And it seems everyone was feeling the traditional Gallic vibes, with hair legend Sam McKnight adding to the understated beauty look. The eyeliner might have been Bardot, but the hair was 100% Gainsbourg.

Salty, textured and totally laissez-faire, McKnight's Cruise 'dos were long and loose with just a hint of a windswept bend. Top with a slightly askew beret and you've got peak 'I woke up like this' supermodel hair.
