Vera Unveiled





As featured on, here’s the scoop on Vera’s beauty inspiration behind her Spring 2012 RTW runway show…


MAKEUP: “I picture a girl who’s just come back from vacationing in Morocco,” said Lucia Pieroni. To capture that coveted “vacation” glow, Pieroni used honey tones and a hint of color high on the cheeks. She was keen on a natural eye, too. “I love that look of uncurled eyelashes, when you can really see the eyelids and they’re sort of that almond-like shape,” she said. “It’s quite Egyptian.”

THE HAIR: Orlando Pita kept hair simple, but dual-textured—dry on the top, with wet ends. “It’s half and half,” he said, maintaining the dichotomy by using bobby pins to fasten the hair in a half-up look. “Vera really liked it for the clothes.”


ON SKIN: “It’s an organic face—easy for any normal girl to do,” said Pieroni. She dusted Clé de Peau Cheek Color #5, a pearlescent duo of tan and soft pink,  beneath eyes for a sun-kissed glow and used Luminizing Face Enhancer in Gold to highlight certain angles, noting that the “highlighting is super-sheer, but controlled.”

ON EYES: Skipping liner and mascara, Pieroni focused on the lids to create a “soft-smoky eye” using Clé de Peau’s Eye Color Quad in #208. “There’s definition, but it’s not really a bold eye.” She kept brows natural, filling in sparse spots to help them appear bushier. “It’s like the girl is a bit of a mess, but totally fabulous.”

ON LIPS: “It’s this very pretty see-through caramel,” Pieroni said of Clé de Peau’s new Enriched Lip Luminizer in a shade called Honey Nuts.

ON HAIR: To keep the hair very firm and dry on top, Pita relied on By Byron Spirulina Hair Spray’s unbeatable hold, and softened the ends with By Byron Spirulina Serum (available later this year) to give a wet texture.
