Lancome @ Monika Chiang NYFW Fall 2012

LANCOME was backstage creating the look at Monika Chiang this past week. Designer Monika Chiang was inspired by none other than Elettra Wiedemann when creating the beauty look for her Fall collection. “Elettra is a perfect muse for me,” Chiang says about the model, philanthropist, and face of Lancôme. “She’s such a natural beauty and has this really healthy glow about her. She can also effortlessly transform from girl next door to old Hollywood glamour girl or rocker chick, to suit her mood. I chose her not only because she’s beautiful, but because she’s strong, smart and stands for something.”

Lancôme National Makeup Artist Tarek Abbas created “enhanced natural beauty” for Chiang’s debut NY Fashion Week presentation. Tarek wanted the models’ skin to be flawless with a healthy glow. He contoured the cheeks using the new Blush Subtil Palette and swept bronzer around the hairline and chin. He mixed two neutral shades of Color Design Eyeshadow to create a subtle wash of color around the eyes and defined the eyes with dark brown eyeliner, which was carefully smudged and blended. One coat of Définicils Mascara in Brown created natural-looking lashes. Tarek applied Rouge In Love in Lasting Kiss with his finger and pressed the color onto the lips to pump up the model’s natural lip color.
