NARS Trend Report: Alexander Wang & Thakoon Spring 2013!

BACKSTAGE AT ALEXANDER WANG FOR SPRING 2013!

NARS created the look for the Alexander Wang runway show.

SHOW: Alexander Wang

LEAD ARTIST: Diane Kendal for NARS Cosmetics

TREND: Flawless skin and natural brows

LOOK: “It’s a minimal look that we achieved using skincare and complexion products,” said Kendal. “Because the collection boasts minimal tones, we did the same thing for the makeup and focused on flawless, matte skin. For the models wearing the amazing glow in the dark looks, we gave them a more luminous face, with powder applied to the high points of the cheek.”

· NARSskin Optimal Brightening Concentrate

FACE

BACKSTAGE AT THAKOON FOR SPRING 2013!

NARS created the look for the Thakoon runway show.

SHOW: Thakoon

LEAD ARTIST: Diane Kendal for NARS Cosmetics

TREND: Strong brows

DESIGNER INSPIRATION: “Everything is light and transparent for the purpose of combining structure and transparency,” said designer Thakoon Panichgul.

LOOK: “There were ‘20s-era vintage images on Thakoon’s mood board,” said Kendal. “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.”
