Runway Beauty: Backstage at Peter Som

Now that you know about the new Peter Som lipstick that's in the works, let's talk about the rest of the makeup used at the show. Just like last season, it was one of my very favorite looks of the week, and it was again created by the lovely Gucci Westman Neville for Lancome.

Peter's collection was incredibly chic and rich in gorgeous fabrics, and Gucci created "a deep lip against a fresh, luminous face" to complement it.

For that beautiful, luminous skin she used Armani Fluid Sheer and a bit of that secret weapon I mentioned, Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Rose Quartz. Magique mousse blush in Pink Parfait gave cheeks a pretty pink glow.

For eyes, Gucci used a creme shimmer on inner corners, and powder eye shadows in shades of rose, cocoa and cream from the Color Design Artist Palette in Couture Warms. This 8-pan palette is perfect for fall - I've pointed out the shades she used in the photo at left. The eye was minimal, though, keeping the focus on the lips.

And that lip! A gorgeous burgundy wine, powdered a bit to keep it matte - remember, this shade will be available in the Pout-a-Porter designer collection come fall, so keep a look out!
