Backstage at Thakoon for Spring 2012!

NARS created the look for the Thakoon Spring 2012 runway show.

SHOW: Thakoon

LEAD ARTIST: Diane Kendal for NARS Cosmetics

TREND: Strong brows and luminous skin

DESIGNER INSPIRATION: “It’s the ideal of the iconic American cowboy gone multi-cultural. The color story came from India, inspired by the spice market — but with a cowboy flair,” said designer Thakoon Panichgul.

LOOK: “Because the collection is so colorful, I wanted to focus on a classic, strong brow. I kept the face natural, with a little pink on the cheek for healthy color. On the eyes, I focused on contouring to show strength and attitude, a cowboy attitude that is,” said makeup artist Diane Kendal for NARS Cosmetics.
