“We wanted a look that embraces the strength of a woman, but still elegant,” said Hourglass Cosmetics makeup artist Moani Lee.

The models’ skin was prepped with Hourglass No. 28 Primer Serum, followed with Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup and Hidden Corrective Concealer. Their eyes were first lined with Film Noir Kohl Eye Pencil in Espresso, then touches of Visionaire Eyeshadow Duo in Exhibition was used to add hints of glimmer. The look was completed with Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara.

To get the red lip, first Lee prepped them with No. 28 lip oil, followed by blending two shades of Femme Rouge: Icon and Raven.

Heather Packer from Cutler Salon for ULTA created two distinct looks to compliment the collections:

La Perla FW 2014- Backstage - 001

A rolled, comb tucked slightly unkempt 1930’s style, created to look as if the women wearing it “just had incredible sex”. To get the look:
“Apply Redken rootful all over roots to ends. Blowdry with a round brush focusing on volume at the roots and not polishing the hair. Apply Redken powder grip to the roots. Subtlety back brush the roots. Sweep back softly to the side and pull up with 3 combs; one above each ear and one in the back.”

The second look was androgynous, inspired by Helmut Newton. To get the look:
“Hair was parted with a deep side part straight back to the crown of the head. Then applied Redken rootful from roots to ends all over and blowdried directing the hair towards a low ponytail. We secured a low ponytail at the nape and twisted the hair into a tight clean bun. Hair spray was applied all over to clean fly aways and add shine.”
