Last year, supermodel Daria Werbowy signed a major contract with Lancome cosmetics. If that wasn't enough, the beauty company asked Daria to create a limited-edition three-piece makeup collection.

The Daria collection will be sold exclusively at Sephora stores starting sometime this month and will consist of a Color Fever lipstick in Beige Caracai ($26); Lipgloss in Nude Prainha ($24), and Color Design Eyeshadow Quad in Carnet de Velours ($42).

The Daria collection

The warm earth-tone color palette was inspired by the model's trips to Brazil to visit Centro Espacial Vik Muniz, a children's art center in Rio de Janeiro -- which part of the proceeds from Daria's line will go to.

On making the three-piece collection, Daria told Nylon magazine: "It was the opposite of what I expected. I thought it would be like Wily Wonka and the Chocolate Factory , but it was very white, bright, clean. I couldn't believe how much work goes into a single product. It's not just color -- there's texture, fragrance, a million little things."

Beauty and brains. Viva la Daria!
