NY Fashion Week: Cle de Peau at Vera Wang Spring 2010

Vera Wang found inspiration for her spring 2010 collection through Paul Poiret, the french designer some say was the first to "drape" his designs-- a new approach that signaled a departure from rigid tailoring. it was with this in mind that Lucia Pieroni, color creator for Clé de Peau Beauté, created her own new approach, developing a boy-like, simple face for each model, that worked perfectly with the clothing and bold jewelry.

"i wanted the models to appear cool and very natural, so i created a super sheer base on the face with eye accents only, of taupe and silver." Lucia says. "i wanted them to look healthy, but a bit supernatural."

beginning with the new Luminizing Enhancer Base, Lucia created a luminous complexion and evened out skin tone, prior to applying the Refining Fluid Foundation to provide an even, flawless and radiant finish on skin.

next, Lucia accented and extended the brows utilizing Eyebrow Pencil in #104/Grey to give a fuller, still polished effect.

to brighten eyes, she used new Satin Eye Color in #11/silver with a touch of shade #111/Taupe to add definition at the outer corners.

Lucia decided to forego the mascara and eyeliner, but chose instead to utilize Satin Eye Color #104/Golden to highlight the browbone and the top of the cheek, adding an ethereal glow.

finally, lips were colored to understated perfection, complementing the face without drawing attention. Lucia used new Extra Rich Lipstick in T40, a nude shade inspired by tea roses.

the new Clé de Peau Beauté spring 2010 collection will premier in march 2010 at Bergdorf Goodman and select Barney's, Neiman Marcus and Saks locations nationwide.
