Lancôme and Denis Gagnon bring Alice In Wonderland to Luminato!

If you will be checking out this year's Luminato events - be sure not to miss out on Lancôme's presentation of an installation by Canadian Fashion designer Denis Gagnon who has created a work of art as a fashion response to the classic Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

Denis Gagnon offers a unique vision of the story by presenting Alice as radiant and confident, such as the Lancôme woman, while being surrounded by the softness and the beauty of her garden of roses, the brand’s iconic emblem. Gagnon will unveil a dress composed of fine metal chains surrounded by a digitally projected rose garden. 

The exhibition Garden of Roses: Denis Gagnon interprets Alice will be presented at Luminato in the Wintergarden Lobby in Toronto from June 10th-19th, 2011.
225 King Street West, Toronto
Admission is free.

Of course what I wanted to know about was the makeup! Lora Spiga, Official Makeup Artist for Lancôme, created a makeup look to complement the exclusive dress created by Gagnon for the festival.  The beauty look is both feminine and whimsical, fit for fairytale characters. The complexion is radiant and slightly tanned. The eyes are natural, highlighted by long lashes. The cheekbones are accentuated, making them irresistible and rosy, while the mouth is coloured with a touch of pink gloss.

Desert Rose Blush and Juicy Tubes Awakening of Love Lip Gloss are the centerpieces of this makeup look. These two products have been carefully selected by the artists from the Lancôme Summer 2011 Bronze Azure collection.
From June 16th to June 18th, book an appointment at the Lancôme counter at Toronto Bay Queen for your custom makeup look inspired by the legendary tale of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.  To make an appointment call 416.861.4572

And don't forget that in August, Lancôme will launch a limited-edition makeup collection developed in collaboration with fashion designer Denis Gagnon. You can check it out here.
