NY Fashion Week Spring 2011: NARS Creates Makeup Look at Honor

at the Honor fashion show for spring/summer 2011, NARS international lead makeup artist, James Boehmer, led a team of makeup artists to create a look that accentuated eyes and kept lips nude.

up-and-coming Honor designer Giovanna Randall shared that the inspiration for the look came from an "elegant femininity inspired by Catherine Deneuve and Grace Kelly with an edge of rebellion like Cyndi Lauper."

with the venue set up like a parisian apartment, the idea was to communicate a merge of innocent femininity and bold sexuality.

for the look James and his team created round-shaped eye combined with a nude matte lip and an overall blended effect. he says, "we wanted the look to be clean and simple so not to distract from the clothes."

to keep the face soft, features were kept streamlined by not using mascara. below are some key products and steps for recreating the look (all products by NARS):

-Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer (new for february 2011). For now – try a light application of Sheer Glow Foundation
-Zen Blush
-Bombshell Eyeshadow (to highlight cheekbones)
-Alhambra Duo Eyeshadow
-Ashes To Ashes Eyeshadow
-Madere Pure Matte Lipstick (new for spring 2011) dabbed on the lip (try Bangkok Pure Matte Lipstick for now)
