>There are few things I love in this life more than Nars and Marc Jacobs* so imagine how excited I was when the face chart from this month’s Marc Jacobs NY Fashion Week show arrived in my inbox.
LEAD ARTIST: François Nars, Founder & Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics
TREND: Blushed cheeks and defined upper eyes
INSPIRATION & LOOK: “The look started with a picture that Marc had of Christy Turlington with really fresh skin and rosy cheeks,” said François Nars, Founder & Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics. “Marc wanted ‘icy cold cheeks’ and so the blush is drawn down in such a way that’s unusual…unusual, but decadent. Like a Renaissance painting.”
As is usually the case with fashion week, most of the products used are from future A/W collections but you can achieve similar results with current products.
- Fall 11 Grand Palais Duo Eyeshadow – for now, try using Lokoum Cream Blush
- Fall 11 Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Via Veneto – for now try Black Moon Eyeliner Pencil
- Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara
Please excuse me. I must pop to the new Nars boutique on Bleeker Street – mere DOORS away from the Marc Jacobs store aka, my happy place. Sigh.
*I don’t care what that says about me. I like things.
