Illamasqua Fall 2010 Heart of Darkness Sneak Peek

The influence behind the AW10 Art of Darkness collection is a blend of the dangerously intriguing art of alchemy - potions, elixirs, liquids and concoctions designed to enrich, poison and dazzle the senses - and the world of myths and magic, with defined figures each with their own distinct personality, coming together for a sumptuous feast...

The collection is buit around 12 different characters.

"Each season, Keren Craig and I introduce a new collection, but with the
classic and consistent signature that is Marchesa – we transport our customers
back to a time when luxury fashion meant the best in tailoring, design, fabric,
etc. When it came to launching a cosmetics collection, we wanted to do the same
and we found immediately that Le Métier de Beauté shared these same core
," says Georgina Chapman.

The Collection takes the
unparalleled textures and formulas Le Métier de Beauté is known for and
transfixes them with the essence of Marchesa
," says Joanna Vorachek Austin,
president of Le Métier de Beauté. "
From the sleek packaging and the
innovative formulas to the flawless application, the Marchesa for Le Métier de
Beauté collaboration brings the best of both brands to the forefront of

After six years designing gorgeous dresses for the Hollywood set, why try your hands at makeup?
GC/KC: When creating the collections for our shows, we always found that makeup played an integral part in the completion of the overall look and feel of the season. It was important for us that our makeup line reflect the same level of craftsmanship synonymous with Marchesa, and Le Métier was the ideal partner for this. We had always loved their products, both for their fantastic quality as well as their unique aesthetic appeal.

How did you arrive at the range in its final incarnation?
We really just opened up our own makeup bags and decided which items we couldn’t live without. Once we decided on what these basics were, we spent hours trying on an endless rainbow of colors and finishes to develop palettes that would work for a broad range of looks as well as day-to-day coverage. We decided on these particular combos because they worked for all our beauty needs.

As far as the general inspiration for the new line, what was your main goal with the palettes, the lip duos, and the pens?
We have very chaotic schedules that require us to consistently get ready on the go, so our ideal product was one that could encompass everything you needed for a complete look (concealer/powder/shadow/lip) in one slim, easy-to-carry package. The slim palettes, highlighting pens, and lip duos are so compact that they can come with you anywhere you go, and the colors are perfect for creating both day and night looks. You can literally be ready at a moment’s notice and still have time to spare to pick out your outfit—what more could we ask for?!

NARS Pure Matte Lipstick Fall '10

NARS Pure Matte Lipstick for Fall 2010
The NARS Pure Matte campaign, photographed by Creative Director and Founder François Nars, features Canadian model Heather Marks. Under Nars’s direction, makeup artist Diane Kendal designed a makeup look that emphasized a bold and matte lip. The end result is audacious, sultry and sophisticated.

Kendal began by applying Siberia Sheer Matte Foundation to the center of the face and blended outward. Vanilla Concealer masked imperfections. Snow Loose Powder was pressed into skin and the Botan Brush buffed away excess powder. Using the Yachiyo Brush, she applied Desire Blush to the apples of the cheeks and blended up towards the temples. For the eyes, Abyssinia Single Eyeshadow was brushed onto the lids with the Eyeshader Brush, followed by Blondie Single Eyeshadow into the crease with the Large Dome Brush to achieve depth. The inner corners were highlighted with the left side of All About Eve Duo Eyeshadow using the Eye Contour Brush. Iceberg Eyeliner Pencil lined the inner membrane of the lower lash line and Nuits Blanches Eyeliner Stylo created an impactful upper lash line. Brows were defined by applying Blondie Single Eyeshadow with the Brow Brush. To complete the look, two coats of Larger than Life Lengthening Mascara were applied to the lashes. Jungle Red Lipliner Pencil was used to define the shape of the lips. To create the luscious matte hue, Vesuvio Pure Matte Lipstick was swiped directly onto the lips.
