Backstage at Missoni – the make-up # 2.  The beautiful model, whose most notable features are her beautiful eyes, Hiedi Mount, was made-up by Lucia Pieroni who described “The make-up is beautiful and healthy as the clothes are so colorful and it is super sexy.  A light foundation, smudgy eyes, bronzing on the cheeks give a healthy glow.  The lips are nude colored and the lipstick is applied with the fingers so it’s not too perfect looking.”
