MAC at Badgley Mischka:

The eyes were created by first using Orpheus Kohl Power Pencil (available AW13) to draw through the lashline and wing at the outer corner to elongate and lift eyes. Then, Damson Pressed Pigment (available AW13) was pressed into Orpheus Kohl Power Pencil to set.

Fascinating Eye Kohl was then applied through the waterline of lower lashes to brighten and open the eyes. Clearwater Paint Pot (available AW13) was used as liner through the lower lashline. Next, 7 LASH were cut and double-stacked on the outer corners of the lashline before being curled and perfectly adjusted to the natural lash. Lastly, Haute & Naughty Mascara was applied over lashes to define and finish. Lips are Runway Hit.

NARS-Naeem-Khan-AW15-Artist-In-Action

James Boehmer for NARS created the look for the Naeem Khan AW ‘15. “Naeem is celebrating his 10th anniversary this season. He wanted the makeup to be dark, sensual and incredibly glamorous. I thought about the artwork of Tamara de Lempicka. The women depicted in her paintings still seem so modern, and I borrowed colors from her signature palette. The eye is architectural yet soft- a smoky eye without any hard edges or strong definition- and without mascara or brows. The lip is a deep matte chocolate red that is classic Naeem. Skin is glossed and shiny on the cheekbones to add dimension without color or depth.”
