Dramatic Eyes with Lancome at L'Wren Scott Fall RTW 2010

Earlier today, L'Wren Scott paraded models dressed in elegant, ultrasexy silhouettes down the catwalk showing her Fall RTW 2010 collection. Tophat, pencil skirts and tuxedo influences abound, mainly in greys and black, sprinkled with a bright green and snowy white here and there.

I loooooove this look! The eyes, the nails, the skin, the cheeks, the lips ... absolutely gorge!

Lancôme Artistic Director for Makeup Aaron De Mey once again teamed up with L’Wren Scott, designer and stylist extraordinaire, to do the makeup for her seasonal presentation at the all-white Gagosian Gallery on Manhattan’s West Side. The makeup look Aaron created was decidedly glam rock and complemented Serge Normant’s cotton candy brands and L’Wren’s sexy, structured silhouette.

After prepping the skin, Aaron applied a layer of Teinte Idole foundation with his fingers, then added a layer of Shu Uemura loose powder for a matte finish. Teinte Idole is my aboslute favorite foundation Lancome makes. It applies smoothly, yields great coverage, is great for oily or combination skin type, and has a beautiful matte yet fresh appearance.

Aaron used Blush Subtil in Shimmer Mocha Havana on the apples of the cheeks and along the cheekbone, all the way to the hairline. The result was a major cheek.

Next came the most dramatic element of the beauty look - the eyes. Aaron used Ombre Magnétique in Black from his upcoming Fall 2010 collection all over the lid and all the way up to the brow bone. Then he used the silver Ombre shade around the tear duct to catch the light and add impact. (Ombre Magnétique, a gel-like shimmery shadow, was Lancôme’s standout product for the fall shows. The artists at Chris Benz and Victoria Beckham also used it.) Le Crayon Khôl in Black Ebony was used along the waterline. Multiple coats of the new Hypnôse Drama mascara on upper and lower lashes completed the look. (Hypnôse Drama was also used at Chris Benz and Victoria Beckham, making it THE Fall 2010 fashion week mascara!)

Aaron kept the lip color neutral so as not to distract from the hypnotic eyes. He used L’Absolu Rouge in Rich Cashmere over which he put La Lacque Fever in Sensation, a glossy nude shade coming this fall.

The most fun part of the look was the models’ blue-grey manicures with a special color that Lancome customized just for L’Wren. I want, I want, I want! Will we be seeing this color on counters soon? Stay tuned.
