Lucia Pieroni, Clé de Peau Beauté’s makeup creative director, looked to capture a soft, ultrafeminine elegance with a seductive flair at Vera Wang. The focal point of the look were the eyes, where Pieroni used Clé de Peau’s new Eye Color Quad in Aquamarine. The lightest tone was blended over the upper lid, while the darkest brown added depth to the eyelid crease. She then applied a bronze shade, dampened with water to intensify the metallic shadow under the eye. Pieroni dabbed on Enriched Lip Luminzer in Sweet Nougat for a barely there glossy finish.
“She [Vera Wang] really wanted the hair to be used as some sort of a material,” said Paul Hanlon for Frédéric Fekkai. “So I decided to take it one step further and make it look more like a fabric rather than hair.” Starting at the back of the head, Hanlon took a section of the hair and back-combed it from the roots to the end. He sprayed a section with Frédéric Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray and ran a straightener through it. Then, he flipped the model’s hair and lightly brushed it from the nape of the neck to the ends. While the hair was still flipped, Hanlon crossed two sections of hair over each other at the front of the head. Putting the hair upright, Hanlon pinned the sections as he wrapped them around the models’ hair. He finished the look by pulling a few strands out toward the back with his hands and sprayed thoroughly with Frédéric Fekkai Sheer Hold Hairspray.
Nails were finished with Midnight Incoco Nail Strips.
