Lancome @ L'Wren Scott
L'Wren Scott Spring 2010 ready-to-wear collection was called Madame du Barry as it was inspired by the mistress of Louis XV and her sense of style, especially her liking for pinks. Antique pastel roses were also used, often for contrast with that rich ruby color. The color story is slightly different but complementary. Lancôme Makeup Artist Director Aaron de Mey on the other hand took inspiration from the roses-and-cream complexion of Marie-Antoinette (the two women hated each other by the way). The whole look came together as one inspired by the preciosity and refinement of the court of Versailles in the 18th century and the beauty of two women who ruled it.
The Look: Matte complexion - Rosy, flushed cheeks - Glossy eyes and lips - Black rose mani/ pedi - Boldly blushed skin . Inspiration: "Marie-Antoinette's infamously powdery, matte complexion and boldly blushed skin"
The makeup was achieved by meticulously layering colors and textures. First, Aaron swept COLOR DESIGN Cream Blush in Petticoat Pink and Pret-a-Plum on the cheeks, followed by translucent powder and powder blush. Next, he dusted a taupe shadow over the eyelid followed by several coats of Hypnôse Waterproof mascara in black and white eyeliner along the waterline. A dab of clear Juicy Tubes on the eyelids imparted a wet finish. Next, Aaron applied L'Absolu Rouge lipstick in Berry Noir with his fingers and layered Color Fever Gloss in Molten on top for shiny, color-saturated lips. To finish the look, Aaron pressed Shu Uemura Face Powder Matte onto the skin and up to the hairline. All the models wore Le Vernis nail polish in Untamed Plum on fingers and toes. The crimped, cotton candy-like buns created by Serge Normant completed this modern fantasy.
