new york fashion week fall 2010...nars at thakoon

Nars Cosmetics was behind the makeup look at the Thakoon Fall 2010 show.  I am so in love with the makeup that I've been seeing at these shows fyi...it's totally wearable and something that I could totally see myself sporting.

Read on for more info on the inspiration behind the look, how-tos, what was used, and a face chart.

Inspiration...Chopinot and Gaultier’s Le Défilé.

I was inspired by the costumes used in this show and wanted to create a collection that reflected that same era but without the goth element. 
-designer Thakoon Panichgul.

The makeup look...The look is fresh, beautiful, luminous and quite confident said lead NARS artist Diane Kendal about the look.  We focused on a strong brow and highlighted the eyes to show depth and boldness in a way that wouldn’t fight with the various textures, layers and colors of the collection.

Here's what was used...


Douceur Blush (NEW for Fall 2010); try Lovejoy or Madly Blush for a similar effect.


Coconut Grove Single Eyeshadow (NEW for Fall 2010); try Bali Single Eyeshadow for a similar effect.

Tzarine Duo Eyeshadow (NEW for Fall 2010); try the Orgasm Illuminator on brow bones for a similar effect.

Portobello Duo Eyeshadow


Tashkent Pure Matte Lipstick (NEW for Fall 2010); try Belle de Jour Velvet Matte Lip Pencil for a similar effect.
