I have to confess: I get way more excited about lingerie than fashion.
And a line like LA PERLA? Well, that just transcends all others.
“LA PERLA is known for stunning, one-of-a-kind lingerie,” say Michael Pierce, of MUA of Hourglass cosmetics. “Women simply feel beautiful when wearing their pieces and when creating the makeup, I wanted to reflect the inner-confidence and radiance that comes with wearing LA PERLA.”
Michael was very inspired by classic Hollywood for the look for this collection, and consequently focused on a sexy, strong red lip, but a red that every woman can wear.
“LA PERLA is beautiful, sexy and feminine and nothing portrays a woman’s beauty like the ability to wear a truly stunning red.” To add to this look, the eyes are light with tight black eyeliner: It’s sexy and gorgeous and very classic.
Copy the look:
Skin: Michael used Veil Fluid Makeup for medium coverage and set it with Oxygen Mineral Powder for a modern, semi-matte approach to 1940’s skin. He followed it with Illume in Bronze Light- using the bronze to contour the cheekbone and the highlighter for strong definition.
Eyes: He sweeped the natural sand shade from Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Gypsy from the lash line to the brow for a glowing luminous eye. Followed by Calligraphy liquid eye liner in Ebony which he winged out in an upward direction for a thin lined look. He then finished it with Film Noir mascara (new for Fall) for an intense & dramatic black.
Lips: He traced the lips with Trace Lip Liner in Message. He then filled it with Raven lipstick (new for Fall) and added a dab of Prodigy lip gloss in Hypnotic in the middle to create the perfect pout.
