NARS Backstage Beauty Report Naeem Khan and Rodarte AW15


SHOW: Naeem Khan Autumn/Winter 2015

LEAD ARTIST: James Boehmer for NARS Cosmetics

LOOK: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."

NARS Backstage Beauty Report at TOME AW15



SHOW: TOME AW’15

LEAD ARTIST: James Boehmer, NARS Director of Global Artistry

LOOK: “The collection this season was inspired by dance and choreography, so you see a lot of movement in the fabrics and silhouettes. There was a strong element of geometry and asymmetry that we wanted to play against in the makeup look - we didn't want anything decidedly "graphic" in the makeup, especially the eye. A defined, natural, slightly glossed masculine brow seemed to inform the character perfectly. We defined the eye itself with a lot of mascara, and finished with a glossy lid. Skin was kept clean and bare, with just a subtle highlight in the outer edges of the face to create dimension. It's almost like a dancer's makeup stripped down to its barest elements."

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."

Create the exclusive look:

FACE  
  • All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation
  • Soft Velvet Loose Powder
  • Radiant Creamy Concealer

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

The skin is very matte, with a clean, liquid eyeliner on the top eyelid, no mascara. Some girls will have a pale, chalky-pink lip.”

Backstage At Creatures Of The Wind Spring/Summer 2015. NARS created the look for the Creatures of the Wind SS’15 runway show.




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.”

  • Stick Concealer
  • Loose Powder

CHEEKS
  • Ligueria Lipstick on cheeks (New for Spring 2015; for now try Belle Du Jour Sheer Lipstick)
