Hourglass Cosmetics lead makeup artist Michael Pierce created the LA PERLA Fall 2010 Collection Preview makeup look. The preview took place at the Lehmann Maupin gallery in NYC on the first day of Fashion Week.
“LA PERLA is known for stunning, one-of-a-kind lingerie,” say Michael Pierce. “Women simply feel beautiful when wearing their pieces and when creating the makeup, I wanted to reflect the inner-confidence and radiance that comes with wearing LA PERLA.”
For the LA PERLA collection, I was inspired by 40s Hollywood – Veronica Lake and other silver screen sirens. The focus is on a gorgeous, strong red lip, but a red that every woman can wear. LA PERLA is beautiful, sexy and feminine and nothing portrays a woman’s beauty like the ability to wear a truly stunning red. Hourglass’ “Raven” lipstick is gorgeous and sexy– and works for all women. To add to this look, the eyes are light with tight black eyeliner.
Skin: Michael used Veil Fluid Makeup for medium coverage and set it with Oxygen Mineral Powder for a modern, semi-matte approach to 1940’s skin. He followed it with Illume in Bronze Light– using the bronze to contour the cheekbone and the highlighter for strong definition.
Eyes: He sweeped the natural sand shade from Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Gypsy from the lash line to the brow for a glowing luminous eye. Followed by Calligraphy liquid eye liner in Ebony which he winged out in an upward direction for a thin lined look. He then finished it with Film Noir mascara (new for Fall) for an intense & dramatic black.
Lips: He traced the lips with Trace Lip Liner in Message. He then filled it with Raven lipstick (new for Fall 2010) and added a dab of Prodigy lip gloss in Hypnotic in the middle to create the perfect pout.
Hourglass is sold at Barneys & Sephora.
