Hourglass At New York Fashion Week

Hourglass created the makeup looks for the La Perla fall 2013 presentation in New York earlier this month. The collection, which featured lace, tulle and silk designs, was inspired by Spain, specifically the embellished livery of bullfighters. “I wanted to capture the sensuality and the strength of the woman wearing this decadent lingerie,” says makeup artist Moani Lee, who focused on elegant brows, radiant skin and dramatic lips worthy of an Almodóvar heroine.

For La Perla’s Black Label collection, which referenced mysterious themes including erotic art and surrealism, Lee switched the focus from the lips to the eyes. “The second look is a fresh take on the classic smoky eye, featuring a blend of black and brown kohl liner,” she says. “There are no harsh lines, it’s a softer interpretation that showcases beautiful, almond-shaped eyes.”

Lee has a mixmaster approach to makeup: To imbue skin with a multi-dimensional luminescence, she combined three different shades of Hourglass foundation, concealer, and finishing powder. As for the scene-stealing scarlet lip, she blended two shades of Hourglass Femme Rouge® Velvet Crème Lipstick. “It was one part Icon and three parts Raven,” she says. “The mixture of blue red and orange red makes for an opulent and regal fall statement.”

GET THE LOOK

LOOK ONE: La Perla Collection

SKIN: Prep with No. 28 Primer Serum. Follow with 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 Hidden® Corrective Concealer in three shades: Fair, Natural and Tan. Finish up with the Ambient® Lighting Powder in three shades: Radiant Light (golden beige), Dim Light (neutral beige) and Luminous Light (champagne pearl). “Blending the three powders creates an exceptional glow.”

EYES: Augment brows with the Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette. Next, line the eyes with Film Noir® Kohl Eye Pencil in Espresso, and apply the mauve shimmer shade from 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 Film Noir® Full Spectrum Mascara.

LIPS: Apply 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.”

LOOK TWO: La Perla Black Label

SKIN: Prep skin with No. 28 Primer Serum. Follow with Veil Fluid Makeup in three shades: Porcelain, Ivory and Honey. Repeat the process with Hidden® Corrective Concealer in three shades: Fair, Natural and Tan. Finish up with Ambient® Lighting Powder in three shades: Radiant Light (golden beige), Dim Light (neutral beige) and Luminous Light (champagne pearl).

EYES: Augment brows with Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette. Next, line the eyes with Film Noir® Kohl Eye Pencil in Eclipse (black) and smudge. Follow with 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 Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Exhibition. Finish with a few coats of Film Noir® Full Spectrum Mascara.

LIPS: Apply Femme Rouge® Velvet Crème Lipstick in Grace. “This shade enhances your natural lip color,” says Lee. “The sensual flesh tone is as appropriate for everyday as it is for the La Perla runway.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hourglass At The Golden Globes

One’s an English beauty and the other’s a Californian bombshell, but Emily Blunt and Jessica Alba had at least one thing in common at the 70th Golden Globe Awards—they both wore makeup by Hourglass.

2013 Golden Globes

In a gilded dress by Michael Kors, Blunt more than lived up to her reputation as a Hollywood golden girl. The actress, nominated for Salmon Fishing In The Yemen, “definitely had something in mind as far as the look,” says makeup artist Jenn Streicher. “Emily wanted smoky eyes paired with soft pink lips that echoed her Lorraine Schwartz ruby earrings.” Meanwhile, Alba, a presenter at the awards ceremony, was resplendent in a coral gown by Oscar de la Renta. “The dress was the inspiration for the look,” says makeup artist Lauren Andersen. “I loved the contrast between her glowing skin and the matte orange lip. It’s an almost tropical pop of color that’s not an exact match for the dress but close.” Here are all the details on their looks by Hourglass:

Create Your Perfect Light

On a crisp day in New York last month, a flock of leading beauty editors arrived at a midtown Manhattan loft. They were there for a first-look at Hourglass’s new Ambient® Lighting Powder, to be officially launched in spring. Ambient® Lighting is a collection of ground-breaking finishing powders that emulate different lighting effects, from pink light to candlelight. Hosted by Hourglass CEO & Founder Carisa Janes, the launch event unfolded in a studio arrayed with artistic vignettes that evoked the six powders.

To bring the collection to life, we also tapped internationally renowned makeup artist, James Kaliardos, whose work has graced magazine covers from W to Vogue. An accomplished story-teller in his own work, James created numerous looks on models using the cutting-edge new powders. “I learned about makeup through the great photography masters—Irving Penn, Helmut Newton, Richard Avedon, Annie Leibovitz, Steven Klein, and Mario Testino,” said James. “And light has always been the most important element to their work. It’s also what makes foundation and skin look wonderful or dull, defining or mask-like.”

After the presentation, the editors had the opportunity to get touch-ups with the powders. The verdict? “This is going to be huge,” said one. Stay tuned for the February unveiling.
