Estée Lauder Debuts at NYFW!‏

I love the colors the blue eyes and copper lips look great together!

For the very first time in the Estée Lauder brand’s 46 year history, they have embarked on New York Fashion Week – sponsoring the beauty look (makeup & nails) at the Derek Lam AW 2010 runway show!

Bold blue eyes, copper lips, matte skin, bare cheeks and neutral nails ruled the catwalk at Capitale on Tuesday, February 16th.

Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director Tom Pecheux lead a team of 15 artists to create the stunning look on 22 models – While famed manicurist Jin Soon Choi and her team polished their nails with a new color that was tested backstage!

“When Derek showed me the fabrics that inspired his Fall 2010 collection – bold and muted tones mixed with earthy pigments including terracotta, greens and browns – I thought the makeup shades should be complimentary. So we chose a blend of bold blue shadows on the eyes, shimmering copper lips and flawless, matte skin created with a light foundation — an on-trend beauty preview of what we will see for Fall 2010.” Tom Pecheux, Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director.
