Five minutes with Aniston's makeup artist, Lucia Pieroni
Lucia Pieroni, makeup artist and color creator for Clé de Peau Beauté, has worked backstage at Vera Wang and Jason Wu, and with celebrities like Scarlett Johannson, Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and (for last month’s cover of W) Megan Fox. But until this past January, she had never worked with the one and only Jennifer Aniston [see Steven Klein’s portfolio here]. What did she think? “She blew me awayshe was so lovely and genuinely nice,” Pieroni told us. “No bullsh*t.”
How did you do Jennifer’s makeup?
We did a quite dark, smoky eye, lots of eyelashes and a nude mouth. It’s stronger makeup than she normally has, a little bit sexy and a little bit raw-looking.
What was the chemistry like between her and Gerard?
He was very nice and the both of them together were really sweet. Obviously they’ve just done a movie together so they’re good friends. And they have good banter going on between them.
What was Jennifer like to work with?
You can imagine you could be friends with her, she’s just a really cool woman. She didn’t have any weird hang-ups about being famous. You know how people can get demanding and difficult? She’s very unassuming. I know it sounds really awful, because it makes her sound bland and I don’t mean it like that, but she’s the perfect girl next door.
