Backstage with NARS

SHOW: Hervé Léger
LEAD ARTIST: Diane Kendal for NARS Cosmetics

TREND: Strong brow, dewy skin

Inspiration: For Fall 2009, Hervé Léger drums to the beat of an urban tribe with a gradient palette of earth tones polished by rich shades of deep ebony. Makeup artist Diane Kendal drew inspiration from Helmut Newton photographs, using the concept of a brave warrior - strong and fierce. “The collection is very hard and sculpted so we wanted to keep the skin neutral and show strength through the eyebrows,” said Diane.

Look: The focus was a very strong eyebrow with glowy skin, communicating strength without being too bold. “We created very fresh, dewy skin by using the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation. It really allowed the skin’s natural highlights to shine through,” said Diane.
Here's a look that I like for every day. Slightly dewy skin, light eyes and a vaguely pink cheek. Instead of the nude lip, I would use a pink or taupe gloss. To get this natural look, here's what you need:
Use NARSskin Hydrating Moisture Cream to moisturize
Apply NARS Concealer as needed, to cover any imperfections
Use a minimal amount of NARS Sheer Glow Foundation (NEW for Fall 2009) to even skin tone

Brush brows to define natural shape
With NARS Single Eyeshadow in Bali, fill in brows
Brush again for even, natural look
Apply gentle dusting of NARS Single Eyeshadow in Sophia to entire lid, blending up towards brows for natural shading
Curl lashes with NARS Eyelash Curler

Apply NARS Lip Therapy Treatment in Rain to entire lip
Use NARS Concealer over Rain to mute color
