The high point of my day yesterday was watching the Marc Jacobs Spring 2013 livestream. I’m delighted to report that NARS created the look for the show. Nars emphasized glowing skin.  “She’s a typical Marc girl,” said Nars of the beauty look. “Very New York City, very chic, very interesting.”
Below are the key products used to create the exclusive look:
·         Sheer Glow Foundation
·         Radiant Creamy Concealer (New for Spring 2013!) Available: US – Feb. 15 2013 / Global – Mar. 1 2013 For a similar effect, try Concealer
·         Light Reflecting Setting Powder – Pressed (New for Spring 2013!) Available: US/Global – Feb. 2013 For a similar effect, try Pressed Powder
·         Pandora Duo Eyeshadow
·         Portobello Duo Eyeshadow
·         Key Largo Duo Eyeshadow
·         Mambo Eyeliner Pencil
·         Bali or Bengali Eyeshadow (on brows)
·         Floralies Satin Lip Pencil – Pressed (New for Spring 2013!) Available: US – Mar. 15 2013 / Global – Apr. 1 2013. This looks amazing in this image:
The eyes look sophisticated and interesting. The skin is soft and matte, with a very subtle light . There is no artificial “sheen” from a highlighter. Unlike some of the contoured looks we saw this week, the skin looks quite natural. I’m picking up a late 1960’s-gone-21st-century vibe. A few more:
Here are some looks from the Marc Jacobs show to give you the context:

  1. Wow! This is one of the few Spring makeup looks that I find appealing and that I think will translate well to real life. Amy, do you have any idea what “Satin Lip Pencil – Pressed” actually refers to as far as the formula or texture? Thank you for your beautifully edited posts!

    • I am sorry I do not– but I am excited to see!! I wonder if pressed is the application method, not a feature of the pencil.

  2. That pressed lip pencil sounds very interesting, I wonder how the formula will be, I am tempted to use bali for my brows now, looks perfect in those pics.

  3. Love that they’re all so fair!!
    Amy, btw, can’t wait to find out how you like Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion…and what shade you are. I’ve ordered one shade, not sure it’s right….but I plan on figuring it out- (more difficult, I think, since I have never tried an armani foundation before and there are so many numbers!). I really like this one. x

    • I cannot wait either! My box arrived- just waitingg to clear off some time to try it!

      • Which color did you order, if you don’t mind me asking? I am usually pretty close to the same shade as you in foundations. I started with 4.4 but then ordered 5 and 2- based on Nordstrom online swatches- which is usually not a very good idea…

        • I ordered 5, but I haven’t tried it yet.

        • Hi Katie,

          I’m NC15 most of the time and NC20 during the summer. I have Fusion in #4 and it works well for me. This is one of those formulas that works with your skin tone so there is quite a bit of latitude.

          • Thank you Eileen! I finally figured out that I am No.2 even though the counter manager swore up and down that I was not. I ended up ordering online and when I went back to return the other even she said the No.2 looked perfect on. Perhaps I was wearing bronzer – or too-dark foundation (!) the day I went in. Anyway, I like it for its natural look and feel. When I want to look really polished, though, I will go for the new Burberry foundation which I am loving!! I always look for your comments and so appreciate your opinions! xx

  4. Bold, graphic eye makeup? Check! Barely there nude cheeks and lips? Check! Short, edgy haircut in extreme color? Check! Black and white clothes with geometric patterns? Check! 1960’s? Check! LOL That raven haired model in the picture with Nars reminds me of the black Sassoon cut and the heavily made up eyes that I sported back in the mid-sixties. Needless to say, this is a look to which I can relate 🙂

    • Eileen, I wish we could go to the Design Museum in Paris to see the Marc Jacobs show–they have a video wall of his influences. So much bold late 1960’s eye makeup, all film clips of the icons of the era. Those influences really come out in this show! I must say I was surprised to see so many Vuitton-shaped bags in yesterdays Marc by Marc Jacobs show (the Tuesday one for the younger set).Since Jacobs designs for both some spillovers were bound to happen. At any rate, they looked really good in the Marc by Marc Jacobs brights and much lighter constructions.
