Direct from the Runway: Peter Som Fall 2010

Uptown girl meets Woodstock. That was the inspiration behind Tom Pecheux for M.A.C's gorgeous look for Peter Som during Fall 2010 Fashion Week. "Few want it to be a full look -- full gothic, full romantic," Tom told me backstage. "Girls most days like to mix." Get all the details of how he and Laurent Philippon for Bumble and bumble created the look after the jump.

The focus of Tom Pecheux's look was really on the lips. He lined them with Currant Lip Pencil "for perfect definition," he said, then filled them in with Kittenish Lipstick using the 242 Brush. The piece de resistance was My Dark Magic Mineralized Eyeshadow applied over the top for a very shimmery, metallic finish.

The eyes were created using a pigment that's yet to be named (from an upcoming collection) over Studio Sculpt Concealer and finished with Invisible Set Powder, applied from the lashline to the browbone and under the eyes. Tom lined the inner eyes and under the brow bone with Silver Dusk and applied Studiofix Lash Mascara to the top and bottom before applying #53 Lashes on the top.

Laurent Philippon took things in a much simpler direction, telling me he wanted a minimalist but very sexy look. "The collection is very cool and sophisticated, a lot of things going on," he said. "We wanted to bring a simple element with the hair and makeup to balance it all." The only Bumble and bumble product he used was Prep, a liquid conditioner that gave a healthy-looking finish. Laurent began with a very straight center part and then flat ironed. Some of the models also received extensions either for added fullness or length, but Laurent said, "it's a case by case situation."
