Victoria’s Secret, Fierce For Fall
Before he made the word fierce part of the country’s vernacular during his winning season on Project Runway, Christian Siriano was a makeup artist. True story. He worked the counter at Bloomingdale’s and even had a brief stint at Sephora before trading in his kabuki brush and face palettes for straight pins and presumably a lot more attitude. In an effort to return to his roots—and complement his most recent collection—the asymmetrical-haired designer has partnered with Victoria’s Secret to produce a line of limited-edition fall makeup. His first official foray into beauty includes a black kajal liner, three different neutral lip glosses, a bronzer/highlighter trio, and five eye shadow solos, including a gold-flecked version of VS Makeup’s best-selling black pigment, aptly named Gilded Fierce. After getting a sneak peak during an editor’s preview last night, we’re pretty sure you’re gonna want to get in on these when they come out at the end of the summer: They’re runway-ready (Alessandra Ambrosia and Adriana Lima were on hand to model the goods) and completely budget-friendly, ranging from $12 to $24 a piece. And just like that, Siriano is poised to endear himself to style-savvy Americans one more time.
