Lancome's makeup secrets from L'Wren Scott during New York Fashion Week

You know how much I love Fashion Week makeup, some of the time it's totally unwearable for anyone not on the runway, but in this case, it's smoky, it's seductive and totally doable for us non-model folk - I love it!
Lancôme Artistic Director for Make-up, Aaron De Mey was once again at the L’Wren Scott show where he created a glam rock make-up look to complement the clothes.

After prepping the skin, Aaron applied a layer of Teint Idole foundation with his fingers, then added a layer of Shu Uemura loose powder for a matte finish.  He used Blush Subtil in Shimmer Mocha Havana on the apples of the cheeks and long the cheekbone, all the way to the hairline.

Now my favourite part, the eyes which were super dramatic.  Aaron used Ombre Magnétique in Black from the upcoming Fall 2010 collection all over the lid and all the way up to the brow bone.  He then used the silver Ombre Magnétique shade around the tear duct to catch the light and add impact.  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.

The lip colour was kept neutral so as not to distract from the hypnotic eyes so L’Absolu Rouge in Rich Cashmere was used over which he put La Lacque Fever in Sensation, a glossy nude shade coming this fall.
Super fun was the model’s blue-grey manicures with a special colour that Lancôme customized just for L’Wren – and if they know what is good for them, will be whipping up a bigger batch for you and me.

  3. I love that smoked out eye! Check out the hugemongo braid on that girl! Wowser!

  4. I looove the silver on the inner corner, I'm totally going to steal it when I next do a black smokey eye :)

  5. Me too! And using light colours at the corner is supposed to make your eyes look wider and make you look more awake!

    Best, Lisamarie
