BACKSTAGE VENEXIANA FALL 2011/Make-Up & Hair

Lincoln Center
Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, NY

Words/Backstage Images Judith Ecochard

Ornate drama...Napoleon Perdis' make-up for the gals captured the mood of the Kati Stern's fashion---


Aristocratic maquillage, was an apt metaphor, we thought.

The eyes were the focus of this serious night time look that's really season-less----with eyes heavily lined with China Doll Eyeliner Equinox, brows exacting with Precision Brow Pencil.


Peep Show Mascara Fantasia---and fake eyelashes, upper and lowers- completed the sweep of these peepers.

As the clothes conjured up a magically fab evening out for gals comfortable with the attention these glistening items will no doubt command, including the feathery ball gowns---we felt the make-up perfectly paired.

ALSO: Strong lips (Devine Goddess Aphrodite/Calypso lined with Lip Pencil Hot Mocha/Haute Pink), sculptured cheeks (Cheek to Chic Blush Duo #6)




HAIR by Tela Beauty Organics featured a Venetian top knot that founder Philip Pelusi assured us takes "5-15 minutes...put half the hair in a tight ponytail, with the hair over the top swept over---twist the hair up top and pin as you go...with Composurer run through for control..."

The result---"ELEGANT BUT NOT TO BUSY."
