Model Anna Laryn in Marchesa FW 2010
Makeup by Talia Shobrook
Start with the who’s who. All the usual suspects were there of course. I was shooed out of the staging area as Anna Wintour of Vogue arrived for the advance preview and saw Glenda Bailey of Harper’s Bazaar being interviewed. Tall drink of water and celebrity stylist, Nick Steele and I got to talking briefly and he introduced me to the drop dead gorgeous Melissa George, he was escorting. Nick’s worked with Beyonce, Claire Danes, and Denzel Washington. Andre Leon Talley was stepping out of a car as I was walking out.
But down to the makeup! Talia Shobrook was key and created a colorful look that was ethereal and romantic and a little bit French circus. The show was sponsored by Le Metier de Beaute which is available at Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus. The Classic Flawless-Finish liquid foundation was nicely sheer and dewy, but I especially loved the moisturizer. I also liked the peach and bronze eye shadows.
Talia mixed a new product called Magic, also from Le Metier de Beaute, with loose green shimmer to line the upper lids and inner corners of the eyes. ALSO…she applied a small rhinestone to the inner corner of each eye. The best way to describe it would be both literally and figuratively, as the British would say, “brilliant!”
