Backstage at Vera Wang RTW Spring 2012

At Vera Wang, Lucia Pieroni’s inspiration for the makeup came from “an uptown girl who just got back from a desert music festival,” which translated to a dusty, free-spirited look.

Pieroni, working with Clé de Peau at the show, applied Clé de Peau Cream Foundation to the skin. Next, she applied light and medium brown shades from her spring 2012 Eye Color Quad all around the eye and on the brow bone, growing lighter near the brow bone. She skipped mascara, but curled lashes. Next, Pieroni applied Luminizing Face Enhancer in Gold on the cheekbones and nose, and finished with Honey Nuts Enriched Lip Luminizer, a pale caramel, on the lips.

Orlando Pita, working with Spirulina by Byron Williams products, wanted a “simple, organic beauty who looks like she just got out of the water.” To achieve this, he made a middle part, brushed hair and pinned it at the nape, finishing with hair spray and plenty of serum to the bottom part of the hair to make it appear wet.
