"I was inspired by the idea of creating a living mannequin look for the VPL show," says Cle de Peau Beaute Color Creator Lucia Pieroni. "However, I wanted these mannequins to appear natural and polished, with a simply stunning radiant glow taking center stage. It's all about contours, radiance, and the definition of a bold brow, and it's the perfect complement to the bright neon colors and futuristic silhouettes seen in the collection."
Pieroni started off with Cle de Peau's Refining Fluid Foundation SPF24 ($120) for a dewy look. He followed with the Eyebrow and Eyeliner Compact 1 ($70) to fill in the brows and frame the face. Pieroni then used the Eye Color Quad in 208 (not available until 2012) and the Enriched Luminizer in 201 (also not available until 2012). Pieroni finished the skin off with Cle de Peau's Luminizing Face Enhancer in 12/Gold (not available until 2012).
