Everything you didn't see on Insta.

In case you’ve been sitting there wondering why your Insta feed is full of white spiral staircases, let’s get you up to speed.

The runway for Kookai's Autumn/Winter ’16 collection took place last week in the beautiful Royal Exhibition Building. And while you may have seen it from every angle at the front (or through the live stream), there’s nothing like behind-the-scenes, backstage goodness. And we’re bringing that to you, right here right now.

Check out the pics above not only to lust over new season outfits, but also for some serious make-up inspo thanks to Napoleon Perdis. If you never thought '70s Milan vibes would be your 2016 make-up goals, get ready for Napoleon to change that.

The beauty crew combined big brows with matte chestnut lids and muted copper highlights. While the eyes were structured '70s heaven, the fresh-faced Kookai look was still maintained with a peach crème blush.

As for tunes, we got our hands on the playlist for the show. Time to update your track list.

Make Up & Costume – The Danish Girl Soundtrack

What it’s really like growing up in a cosmetics empire.
Time to meet the make-up king.
All the beauty, mayhem and those fish-tail ponytails.
A inside look into behind the scenes of VAMFF.
