La Perla: New York Fashion Week Fall 2010

Hourglass MUA Michael Pierce created for last night’s LA PERLA Fall 2010 Collection Preview. The show boasted three looks, but I’m most enamored with Look #1. Here are the deets.
Michael 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 swept 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 and dramatic black.

What do you think of this look? I’m going to replicate that gold eye, STAT.
