Lucia Pieroni Color Creator, Clé de Peau Beauté
Call to mind the most breathtaking make-up you've ever seen and chances are the hand behind the beauty is Lucia Pieroni's.
Mind-blowingly creative, unwaveringly cool, yet always, always beautiful,
Lucia's work is admired both by her peers and the press alike for its fresh and modern approach.
A native of Great Britain, Lucia's career began in 1989 with an introduction to the industry through her model sister, Paola Pieroni.
Using products to enhance rather than conceal, Lucia created breathtaking and dramatic images, but always with a 21st century twist.
Her signature look generated instant acclaim and a new makeup star was born!
Lucia's career quickly skyrocketed, and she became the go-to artist for such renowned photographers as Glen Luchford, Mert & Marcus, Paola Roversi,
Craig McDean and David Sims. In 1995, Lucia relocated to New York, where her talents graced the pages of the nearly every top fashion magazine,
solidifying her as a premier make-up artist not only in New York, but in the world.
Sensual, strong, thought provoking, envelope pushing, beyond beautiful... all these phrases have been used to describe Lucia's work.
She is known for setting the trends rather than following them and her images become defining ones. No matter how fashion forward,
Lucia says "I always want to do something beautiful. Even if I am doing a 'no make-up' look or one that's a bit crazy or dramatic,
the end result still must be beautiful". This is an attitude that makes Lucia rare amongst her contemporaries.
Today, Lucia can be found traveling the globe making stops in London,
Milan and Paris where she works closely with top fashion designers.
Lucia is also responsible for perfecting the faces of big screen sirens like Scarlett Johansson, Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore.
Beyond work, Lucia travels the globe for inspiration.
As a constant collector, Lucia gathers fabric swatches, books, art, photography ...even food! ... from even her farthest flung destination,
and always finds ways to incorporate these textures and shades into her own artform.
Lucia knows how women want to look and what products they need to achieve it.
And, she believes that the looks she creates should transcend boundaries. "I want make-up to be enjoyed, not just by supermodels,
but also by real women," says Pieroni. "I love it on so many levels."
Brilliantly combining creativity and technical genius, meshed with her calm,
centered personality make Lucia one of the most highly sought after makeup artists
in the industry and Clé de Peau Beauté is proud to have worked with her exclusively since 2005.
As Color Creator for the brand, Lucia is responsible for creating products consumers can't live without.
"I want to offer women products for every age," she says. "I strive to keep the collections interesting, exciting, and always luxurious."
It is with this philosophy that Lucia’s creations continue to break the beauty mold.
