NARS Beauty Report: Thakoon, Creatures of the Wind and Noon by Noor SS17

Thakoon Fall 2016 Ready-to-Wear

Thakoon really wanted the girls to look healthy, confident, optimistic. It's the return to the American beauty – really looking to that Peter Lindbergh iconic New York mood. The look is inspired by the late 80's American glamour girls like Cindy, Christie, Linda, and Tatjana Patitz. Skin is gorgeous, makeup is fresh and beautifully groomed, with a hint of glamour.” -Diane Kendal

Creatures of the Wind AW16

SHOW: Creatures of the Wind AW16 

“I was inspired by a young Hispanic girl in New York. She's really confident and likes herself - she doesn't entertain all the makeup tricks "contour, foundation & powder” she goes straight for a strong lip. This is a sophisticated update on the heavily-lined lip from the 90’s. I played with the color and application on the lips, kept the rest of the face clean and bare, and brushed gloss through her brows to keep it young. It’s beauty with attitude.”  -Mark Carrasquillo for NARS Cosmetics

NARS Beauty Report Creatures of the Wind SS16

BACKSTAGE AT CREATURES OF THE WIND SPRING/SUMMER 2016


LEAD ARTIST: Aaron de Mey for NARS Cosmetics

LOOK: “The look was inspired by singer, Siouxsie Sioux. She always had a very strong eye look - it had the same spirit, but was applied differently each time. The look is very eclectic with a lot of layering, which plays off the layering in the collection. It's punk, tough looking. I loved the richness of the gold against the toughness of the black. It’s an updated, modernized take on eyeliner.”

Backstage at Creatures Of The Wind Autumn/Winter 2015



SHOW: CREATURES OF THE WIND AW’15

LEAD ARTIST: James Boehmer, NARS Director of Global Artistry

LOOK: "The collection is inspired by "Americana"- a mash up of the 1920's, 60's and 70's - more specifically the 1970's looking at the 1920's. The silhouettes reference psychedelic and progressive rock, with icons such as Anjelica Huston and Sissy Spacek informing the makeup look.


Clean, perfected matte skin with no shine. Loads of mascara was applied like it would have looked in this era - pasty, a bit dry, and deliberate - applied only to the outer half of the top and bottom lashes. Eyelids were left their natural color and texture to contrast the rest of the face. A brushed up glossy brow finishes the look."

FACE  
  • All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

EYES   
  • Audacious Mascara (New for Fall 2015, for now try Larger Than Life® Volumizing Mascara)

LEAD ARTIST: James Boehmer, NARS Director of Global Artistry

LOOK: “Skater boys were the inspiration for this look, it’s raw, a little undone and effortlessly cool.  The models looked great when they showed up for the casting—great skin, lots of freckles and a left over summer-vacation look to them, so we groomed the brows and gave the cheeks a flushed, overheated look.”

Creatures of the Wind Autumn/Winter 2014


For the Creatures of the Wind A/W 2014 show, the collection was focused on transcendence for which lead makeup artist James Boehmer, NARS Director of Global Artistry, drew his inspiration. “We wanted the makeup to reflect a sense of purity and illumination, so we focused on gleaming, luminous skin and a metallic blue liner on the inside of the eye to light the eyes from within,” said Boehmer.
