I’ve been waiting for this one. New York Fashion week has been taking over media for the past several days. I’m delighted to see some of the major shows disclosing their makeup. I’ve noticed that several of the MAC tweets have heavily favored the MAC Face and Body Collection (now online), especially the Pro Sculpting Creams. The MAC shows have featured ulta-clean and natural contouring, such as these images from Alexander Wang. I must admit I’m intrigued by this you-but-better natural spin.
NARS is doing its own take on a modern face(featuring its new skincare line to add glow and improve skin tone), clean lines and emphasis on beautifully structured faces. For Thakoon, NARS lead artist Diane Kendal emphasized strong brows. The clothes were “light and transparent” to combine “structure and transparency,” said designer Thakoon Panichgul.
For makeup, “There were ‘20s-era vintage images on Thakoon’s mood board,” said Kendal. “While there was something very fragile about them, the eyes were deep and cheeks were blushed. We made the look modern, and more off-beat, with shades of brown to create depth in the eyes. The blush is lower on the face rather than on the cheekbone, like a painting.”
As with the Alexander Wang beauty, there seems to be a strong trend with a very natural, contoured cheek and emphasis on bone structure. Products used:
