NARS cosmetics is known for echoing a cool, rich image with their provocative product names that often create a stir amongst the fashion world. Their makeup trends have been highlighted this fashion season, particularly, at Thakoon’s Spring 2013 runway show at the New York Fashion Week.
Diane Kendal, the Lead Artist for the Cosmetic brand kept in mind a ‘strong brow’ trend whilst setting the look. “There were ‘20s-era vintage images on Thakoon’s mood board,” Kendal was quoted saying. “While there was something very fragile about them, the eyes were deep and cheeks were blushed. We made the look modern, and more off-beat, with shades of brown to create depth in the eyes. The blush is lower on the face rather than on the cheekbone, like a painting.” Kendal even emphasized on the strong influence of minimalism which led in a compilation of a flapper-meets-90s-chic thus creating a fun inspiration.
Thakoon Panichgul was quoted while describing the inspiration for his collection as “Everything is light and transparent for the purpose of combining structure and transparency,” which was reflected powerfully on both the collection as well as makeup.
Some of the key products used for the look are – Luminous Moisture Cream and Optimal Brightening Concentrate for the skin; Radiant Creamy Concealer (available from February and march in USA and Globally respectively) Light Reflecting Setting Powder – Pressed (available by February to USA and Global markets) and Seduction Blush (Available from January in USA and February globally) for the face; for the highlighted brows, Jodhpur Eyebrow Pencil and the Mambo Eyeliner Pencil were used. Bali Single Eyeshadow, Blondie Single Eyeshadow and Santa Monica Blvd Larger Than Life® Long-Wear Eyeliner were used for the intricate eye work. The products used for the exclusive look are new and are or will be available on their official website NarsCosmetics.com.
