The symposiums kicked off in Atlanta with a panel that included our very own SVP and General Merchandise Manager of Beauty, Fragrance, Lingerie and Swimwear – Kate Oldham, who was present for all three in-store sit-downs. In Atlanta she was joined by none other than the President of LVMH Beauty – Terry Darland, as well as Guido Campello, CEO of the powerhouse lingerie brand Cosabella.

Aline Weber – The Feminine Fatale

“I created a very sophisticated makeup look, using the Five-Color Dior Eyeshadow in the Trafalgar palette,” offered Benjamin Puckey on set. “I first applied the Diorshow Art Pen against the lash line and used the dark purple/mauve color in the corners of the yelids and along the lash line and blended it out towards the temples. I then used the pink and white on the inner corner of the eye to open it up.”

 The Feminine Fatale is Ready for Her Close-Up

“For her lips we used Giorgio Armani’s Rouge Ecstasy #500,” Benjamin continued. “The lip color isn’t too defined. It’s just a pretty lip. Neither the lip nor the eye are too much. Neither is the focus – it’s about the whole look.”

“We used the YSL Le Teint Encre De Peau, Fusion Ink Foundation,” Benjamin added about working on Aline’s complexion. “It’s a thick foundation, so I would advise people to apply it with a flat-top foundation brush and just buff it into the skin. It gives a lot of coverage. While it’s full coverage, you’re able to have it cover all the imperfections, but still look like skin. No need to sponge it on at all.”

“For Aline’s hair we added extensions to add length and some fullness,” said hair-stylist Esther Langham of this particular look. “Then we gave it a wave, sort of a Jessica Rabbit vibe. Old movie star mood. It’s also just really nice to blow dry the hair and then when I set the hair with the irons, I’ll use some hairspray.”
