Using Lancome Holiday Collection

Julia Roberts for Lancome

Lancome’s latest collection for Holiday 2010 was a collaboration with designer L’Wren Scott, called simply L’Wren Scott Color Collection.   On Monday night, Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards was held at Carnegie Hall and Julia Roberts was decked out in L’Wren clothing and the beauty collection from Lancome.   Now you can see how the collection can be used to create this beautiful look. 

For the event, Julia’s makeup was done by her longtime makeup artist Genevieve Herr.  Julia’s subtly smoky eyes were done up with Ombre Absolue Quad in Les Gris L’Wren (shown above) from the L’Wren Scott for Lancôme holiday color collection. Genevieve used two of the shades; the sheer gray was swept onto the outer lid, the crease and outward and the black was used as liner. Topping the look was Hypnôse Drama in Le Noir L’Wren, a shimmering mascara that Genevieve says added “a lot of glamour.”

For the lips, Genevieve used L’Absolu Rouge Crème de Brillance in Le Rouge L’Wren. This intense berry gloss provided the perfect contrast for Julia’s dark dress and eyes, says Genevieve. Lancôme’s Teint Miracle Lit-from-Within Foundation delivered flawless skin, while Blush Subtil Powder Blush in Rose Romantique added that finishing touch of color.

The Lancome L’Wren Holiday Collection is available at Lancome online, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Saks.  Again, since it’s holiday – once it’s gone, it’s gone for good.
