Get The Look: La Perla And La Perla Black Label with Hourglass Cosmetics

La Perla Fall 2013 presentation was this Thursday, February 7 at The Gallery at Dream Downtown in New York.

La Perla designer Giovanni Bianchi looked to Spain for inspiration, specifically the moody color palette of painter Francisco Goya, and the embellished livery of bullfighters. “I wanted to capture the sensuality and the strength of the woman wearing this decadent lingerie,” says Lee, who focused on elegant brows, radiant skin and dramatic lips worthy of an Almodóvar heroine.

Makeup looks were created by makeup artist Moani Lee for Hourglass Cosmetics.

 LOOK ONE – La Perla Collection

SKIN

Prep with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum to create a seamless canvas for makeup. Follow with Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup in three shades: Porcelain, Ivory and Honey. “I use the deepest shade to contour, the lightest shade to highlight and the matching shade for the rest of the skin,” says Lee.

Repeat the process with Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer in three shades: Hidden, Fair and Tan.

Finish up with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in three shades: Radiant (golden beige), Dim (neutral beige) and Luminous (champagne pearl). “Blending the three powders creates an exceptional glow. You can literally become your own lighting technician.”

EYES

Augment brows with Hourglass Arch Sculpting Brow Pencil in Soft Brunette.

Next, line the eyes with Hourglass Film Noir Kohl Eye Pencil in Espresso, and apply the mauve shimmer shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Exhibition to the lids.

“To create a watery effect, I like to dampen my brush with a little No. 28 Primer Serum,” says Lee. “Unlike using water, the shadow never really dries down.” Finish with a few coats of Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara.

 LIPS

Prep lips with Hourglass No. 28 Lip Oil, launching this summer, and follow by applying Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick in Raven and Icon. “I melted the shades together and applied the new color with a lip brush,” says Lee. “Although vibrant, it’s not an especially sharp shape. It’s still fresh, delicate and elegant. The mixture of blue red and orange red makes for an opulent and regal fall statement that even Goya himself might have appreciated.”

 LOOK TWO – La Perla Black Label

 SKIN

Prep skin with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum to create a seamless canvas for makeup.

Follow with Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup in three shades: Porcelain, Ivory and Honey.

EYES

Augment brows with Hourglass Arch Sculpting Brow Pencil in Soft Brunette.

Next, line the eyes with Hourglass Film Noir Kohl Eye Pencil in Eclipse (black) and smudge. Follow with Hourglass Film Noir Kohl Eye Pencil in Espresso (brown) and smudge. “Layering the two shades gives the eyes more depth and intrigue,” says Lee.

Follow with the eggplant shimmer shade from Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Exhibition on the lids. Finish with a few coats of Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara.

 LIPS

Prep lips with Hourglass No. 28 Lip Oil, launching this summer, and follow by applying Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo, coming this fall. “There are six shades and you pick the one that best suits your skin tone,” says Lee. “Femme Nude enhances your natural lip color. The sensual flesh tones are as appropriate for everyday as they are for the La Perla runway.”

Hourglass is available at Sephora, Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman and Space.NK, Liberty and Zuneta.
