the Alexander Wang spring 2015 show was received with high praise thanks to its strong yet feminine pieces that were expertly structured, cool and definitely wearable. the collection was complimented by beautifully simple and modern looks created by artists from NARS and essie. 

Diane Kendal for NARS Cosmetics used the spring '15 collection as her inspiration to create a makeup look that highlighted and contoured to bring out the strength of each model's features.

Via Appia Larger Than Life® Long-wear Eyeliner
Iskandar Eye Paint
Cappadoce Matte Multiple layered with South Beach Multiple

on nails, Michelle Saunders for essie created a short, rounded length nail look for both the hands and feet. she layered the neutral tone of ridge filling base coat over au natural to complement the modern, active collection.

to create the look {hands and feet}:
1. apply two coats of au natural to clean, filed nails
2. next, apply one coat of ridge filling base coat in order to create the perfect modern,
neutral nail color
3. follow with good to go top coat
