A little birdie tweeted in my ear that the blue-grey custom blend polish Lancôme created exclusively for the L’Wren Scott Fall 2010 runway will make its way to counters by the end of this year. The shade, that looks to be a metallic, worked perfectly with the sexy smokey eye Aaron De Mey created. I only wish I could have been backstage to see it in person.
Full details on the look from Lancôme:
Lancôme Artistic Director for Makeup Aaron De Mey once again teamed up with L’Wren Scott, designer and stylist extraordinaire, to do the makeup for her seasonal presentation at the all-white Gagosian Gallery on Manhattan’s West Side. The makeup look Aaron created was decidedly glam rock and complemented Serge Normant’s cotton candy brands and L’Wren’s sexy, structured silhouette.
After prepping the skin, Aaron applied a layer of Teinte Idole foundation with his fingers, then added a layer of Shu Uemura loose powder for a matte finish. Aaron used Blush Subtil in Shimmer Mocha Havana on the apples of the cheeks and along the cheekbone, all the way to the hairline. The result was a major cheek.
Next came the eyes, the most dramatic part of L’Wren’s makeup look. Aaron used Ombre Magnétique in Black from his upcoming Fall 2010 collection all over the lid and all the way up to the brow bone. Then he used the silver Ombre 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.
Aaron kept the lip color neutral so as not to distract from the hypnotic eyes. He used L’Absolu Rouge in Rich Cashmere over which he put La Lacque Fever in Sensation, a glossy nude shade coming this fall.
The most fun part of the look was the models’ blue-grey manicures with a special color that Lancôme customized just for L’Wren.
So we didn’t get Pop Petrol in the US but we are definitely getting this standout shade. Though wouldn’t it be amazing if Lancôme brought Pop Petrol to our shores and paired it with this polish as special set? Lancôme are you listening?? Hmm, what would it be called? What would you name this color?
