NARS Cosmetics for Thakoon Fall 2011. Create the Look

I am sure that you know that it’s time of Fashion Weeks and while many people are interested in the designer clothes and accessories I am really interested in the beauty/hair/nails at the shows. Don’t get me wrong, I like the clothes/shoes/bags etc but I love looking at the creative and often extravagant looks.

I’ve got the details about quite a few  looks so I will publish some of my favourites. I really like this look by NARS so here are the details on how you can create it yourself!

SHOW: Thakoon

LEAD ARTIST: Diane Kendal for NARS Cosmetics

TREND: Tribal eyes and muted lips

INSPIRATION: “The collection draws inspiration from the opulence of the Rococo period and the style of the Masai tribe in Africa,” said designer Thakoon Panichgul. “There are a lot of primary colors, but also gorgeous marabou feathers, so we wanted to create a balance to everything to ensure it was really believable. We’ve always done fresh, pretty, natural, and it was time for a strong makeup look.”

LOOK: “With Thakoon’s references to this idea of tribal opulence, I felt that if we were going to do “color” it would have to be focused on the eye with one central color theme, and nothing else. There was a lot of youth in the group of models, so we wanted to keep the look very fresh. Red was a natural choice, complimenting the use of color throughout the collection”

Below are the key products used to create the exclusive look:

FACE

  • Brightening Serum £44
  • Concealer (NEWLY formulated for Fall 2011) for now, try the

New Lip Products: NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil and Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color SPF 12

There are several new lip products that launched recently and 2 of them caught my attention.

NARS Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil ($24)

“Seduce with gorgeously glossy color while outing the pout with moisture-rich hyaluronic spheres. Take lips to new heights in six beautifully buttery born-to-shimmer shades, from seashell pink to raspberry sorbet. It doesn’t get glossier than this.”

NARS Cosmetics Tainted Love Set for Valentines Day

Valentines Day is almost a month away but, like it or not, some shops already have the hearts and flowers all over and some brands release their Valentines collections.  And it’s the same when it comes to makeup brands. And if I am obviously not a fan of the first I am happy to see an extra makeup collection. I believe you won’t mind an extra makeup collection, too, right?!

We already saw the hot (and red) collection by Illamasqua and now it’s time to look at the feminine (and pink) collection by NARS.

The set includes:

  • Angelika lip gloss
  • Multiple Stick in cotton-candy pink with flecks of shimmering silver and gold.

I LOVE it!
