#69 Still in a Nars beauty state of mind

Other looks I love from the SS2010 trend report are

Derek Lam

This was very colourful with a tribal and carnival rainbow of colours. The focus was very much on the eyes and I just love the playful use of colour in greens, purples and pinks.

To recreate the look


· Blend NARS Sheer Glow Foundation
· Apply NARS Nico Blush to highlight
· Dust NARS Desire Blush onto the apples of the cheeks
· Layer NARS Taj Mahal Blush on top and up towards the temples


· Draw the emerald green from NARS Misfit Duo Eyeshadow along the lower lash line straight across until just past the outer corner
· Dust NARS Jolie Poupée Duo Eyeshadow on the eyelids and fade into the temple joining the green
· Highlight the inner corners of the eyes with NARS Bains Douche Glitter Pencil (NEW for Spring 2010)
· Curl lashes
· Lightly stroke NARS Méditerranée Duo Eyeshadow along the brow bone
· Apply three coats of NARS Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara on the top and bottom lashes

· Dot lips with NARS Red Square Velvet Matte Lip Pencil
· Outline the lips with NARS Easy Lover Lip Gloss (NEW for Spring 2010)

Marc Jacobs

I thought this was just so theatrical and creative (although not one I personally will attempt to recreate). Created by Francois NARS himself the inspiration was contemporary dancer, Martha Graham and the look was Left-over stage makeup. “The models weren’t meant to have perfect makeup- rather, they were meant to encompass a “just came off-stage” effect. “Dancers in theatre and opera always have white faces, pointed lips and an eye that is drawn outward,” said François NARS. He stressed the importance of the eye for this look, noting that “the slashes of white is something they used to do in the 70s to bring a 3-dimensional feeling to the makeup
