Lela Rose Fall 2010 Look:
Makeup Artist: Tina Turnbow
Inspiration : Nature’s celestial landscapes- think of the nighttime sky and imagine a full moon peaking behind the clouds.
Overall Look : The moonlit eyes are mysterious, while the complexion and lips have a cloudy, hazy feel.

eyes: Silvery, moonlit eyes-a silvery/black smoky eye without edges and just a touch of blue. The eye is almost 3D, rounded and mysterious.

direction: Think of the eye as a rounded sphere or planet. The inner crease of the eye is darkened up to the brow with the shimmery deep blue gray (eyeshadow in lucy I’m home). The outer area is rounded, softly muted blackness. The center of the eye is the lightest, with darker edges (inner and outer corner of eye) ending in black (eye couture palette). Apply blue lagoon only in the center of the top and lower lids. Blend the blue into the gray and then into a bit of the black. There should be a bit of the blue and silver gray (eye couture palette) blended in the center of the lower lashline. Apply smolderEYES in the inner rim of the eyes. Top it off with a coat of lights, camera, lashes! mascara on the top and bottom lashes (no curling needed). Leave eyebrows-do not fill in. After finishing the eyes, clean underneath with the eraser 4-in-1 natural concealer .

complexion: It should feel muted like a hazy, cloudy sky. The mineral powder will matte and tone skin.
· the eraser 4-in-1 natural concealer-use after applying shadows to avoid fallout.
· smooth operator oil-free tinted moisturizer with SPF 20 (one shade lighter than model’s complexion)
· provocateur pressed mineral powder
· t-zone travel
cheeks: Just a touch of healthy blush.
· blissful natural cheek stain (warm peachy pink)
· powder over blissful with provocateur pressed mineral powder

FASHION WEEK: LA PERLA vamps up the beauty

Hourglass MUA Michael Pierce created LA PERLA’s Fall 2010 Collection Preview which took place at the Lehmann Maupin gallery in NYC on the first day of Fashion Week.

Michael shares his inspirations and how he created the look. “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.”

Look # 1:
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) and added a dab of Prodigy lip gloss in Hypnotic in the middle to create the perfect pout.

Look # 2:
The LA PERLA Studio collection is an edgier look that is Tribeca-inspired. She is an urban woman that is fearless and owns her city – like she owns her beauty. For this, I created a messy, dark eye with a nude lip in order to portray an independent, inspirational beauty.

Skin: Michael created rich and dewy skin with Illusion Tinted Moisturizer. He used Hidden Concealer in Pearl, a shade lighter than the skin tone, to lift up the cheek bones and intensify the hallow. He also used Oxygen Mineral Powder in a darker shade than the skin tone to contour the cheek bones.
Eyes: Using Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Prism, Michael combined the two colors and used his fingers for a smudged, unblended look– heavier on the outside of the eye. He then took Extreme Sheen lip gloss in Reflect and added it to the eye lid for an edgy, well-worn look. He wetted a small lip brush and created a muddy consistency with the darker shade of Prism to tight line the eye- added to the inner, upper rim of the eye. Last, He used Film Noir mascara (new for Fall) for a powerful black.
Lips: To complete the look with a nude lip, Michael used Adorn in Poetry and Trace in Bare.

Look #3:
The Villa Toscana collection is soft and feminine and was created for everyday women. The makeup reflects this with a focus on flawless skin. I used a minimum of product to define her features and a neutral full lip with tight defined eyes. My philosophy here is that a woman should wear her makeup, the makeup should not wear her.

Skin: This look is all about soft and natural skin. To create this glow, Michael used Illusion Tinted Moisturizer, which has a slight shimmer. He then used Illume in Bronze Light and the blush from Illume in Sunrise to add luminosity.
Eyes: To create a soft innocent eye, Michael sweeped the eye lid with the natural shade from the Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Suede. He then wet his brush and reapplied the same color to the eye for a glossed effect.
Lips: Like rest of the look, he maintained a natural beauty and created a natural, full lip with Prodigy lip gloss in Surreal and Trace lip liner in Bare.

Hourglass is sold at Barneys & Sephora.
