Estee Lauder Debuts at Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week

For the first time in the company's history, Estee Lauder hit Mercedes Benz Fashion Week to do the beauty for Derek Lam!

Creative Makeup Director Tom Pecheux led a team of 15 artists for the show, while manicurist Jin Soon Choi worked her magic on the nails using a new color that will be released in the fall.

"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.

On the eyes are new Estée Lauder EyeShadow Tested Backstage – Shades Launching Fall 2010, Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eye Pencil in Midnight Blue, and Estée Lauder TurboLash All Effects Motion Mascara in Black.

The skin was prepped with Estée Lauder Double Wear Light Foundation, while cheeks were left bare. To finish, Pure Color Crystal Lipstick in Crystal Beige was applied to the lips.

I am really excited to see the new collections under Tom Pecheux. I predict they will be amazing.
