Backstage at NYFW with NARS Cosmetics

One of our favourite beauty brands, NARS was backstage during numerous runway shows at New York Fashion Week. The NARS cosmetics team created looks for major collections including Alexander Wang, Thakoon and Rodarte.

ALEXANDER WANG

Lead Artist
Diane Kendal for NARS Cosmetics
 

The Look
“For this collection, Alex wanted to go back to the feeling and style of when he started, which was quite street.  The beauty is raw, the girls are meant to kind of look as they are, with a little bit of grooming but nothing ‘done’.”

3.1 PHILLIP LIM 

Lead Artist
Francelle Daly for NARS Cosmetics
 

The Look
“The skin is organic, clean, simple, earthy and real.  Look at the environment of the set, mounds of organic earth and the smell overwhelms you of nature, I wanted that to read in the makeup. The girls have a light wash of matte foundation and stick concealer, so the skin reads naked and natural. There is a boldness of color coming from the eye, a reference of new romanticism and new wave with the bright blue and black lines.”

MARC JACOBS

Lead Artist
François Nars, Founder & Creative Director

The Look
“The look is very downtown – it’s the East Village girl who’s been out all night. Marc wanted them to look a little worn, so we created a look with too much mascara, just the right amount of color, no foundation, and dark circles under the eyes. There’s a lot of shine on the cheeks and eyes – they almost look greasy and a bit tired, but still so beautiful.”
