Think lots of draping, a la French designer Paul Poiret, for the Vera Wang show. No rigid tailoring here! Which meant plenty of simple, boy-like faces on the models, created by Lucia Pieroni, Color Creator for Cle de Peau Beaute. (Such a great (upscale) brand that often doesn’t get the recognition it deserves, in my opinion.)
“I wanted the models to appear cool and very natural, so I created a super sheer base on the face with eye accents only, of taupe and silver.” Lucia says. “I wanted them to look healthy, but a bit supernatural.”
Beginning with the new Luminizing Enhancer Base ($42,) Lucia created a luminous complexion and evened out skin tone, prior to applying the Refining Fluid Foundation ($118) to provide an even, flawless and radiant finish on skin.
Next, Lucia accented, and extended, the brows utilizing Eyebrow Pencil in #104/Grey ($55) to give a fuller, still polished effect.
Additionally, Lucia decided to forego the mascara and eyeliner, but utilize Satin Eye Color #104/golden to highlight the browbone and the top of the cheek to add an ethereal glow.
Lastly, lips were colored to understated perfection, complementing the face without drawing attention. Lucia used the new Extra Rich Lipstick in T4 ($65,) a nude shade inspired by tea roses.
