Backstage at Marc Jacobs

NARS was backstage at the Marc Jacobs show and Francois Nars himself was doing the makeup.  The look was smoky green eyes and deep lips, which was pretty enough to work in real life too!

Inspiration?

“The look is very reminiscent of Angelica Houston in the 70s-the bleached brows and the deep eyes,” said François Nars. “I wanted them to look like iconic models from the 70s with a modern approach. Marc had images of what he wanted the makeup to look like – mimicking the colors of the clothing but not matching exactly.”

Products used for creating the look:

Face:
-NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer (NEW for Spring 2011 – for now: try NARS Sheer Glow Foundation)
-NARS Orgasm Blush

Eyes:
-NARS Night Porter Eyeshadow
