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."

Tilda Swinton On The Town


Event Photo Credit: Kristina Bumphrey/Starpix 

NARS Spring 2015 campaign model Tilda Swinton attended the 2014 RADiUS Holiday Party hosted by NARS on Tuesday Dec. 2. The event celebrated Tilda for her recent film, “Snowpiercer”.

On the previous evening, the British beauty attended the 2014 Gotham Independent Film Awards, where she received the Actor Tribute Award for her body of work including “Snowpiercer,” “Only Lovers Left Alive” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” -- all of which opened this year -- as well as “Michael Clayton,” the 2007 feature for which she won an Oscar. For both events, Tilda’s beauty look was created by makeup artist James Kaliardos using NARS.


The 2014 RADiUS Holiday Party Beauty Inspiration: “Tilda’s look featured a bold red lip, so I pulled back on the eye and shaded it with soft hues to give depth and luster without looking like shadow.  It’s a tougher, cooler way to wear lipstick. The faint hint of blush complements her skin tone but doesn’t overpower, giving her cheeks a healthy glow. Strong, modern, elegant but cool.”


Key NARS products used:
  • All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation (New for Spring 2015; for now try Sheer Matte Foundation)
  • Sex Appeal Blush
  • Annabella Audacious Lipstick


The 2014 Gotham Independent Film Awards Beauty Inspiration: “We went tone-on-tone with Tilda’s look to complement her Haider Ackermann satin and matte sheath. It was fun working the subtleties of her skin while highlighting the slight depth of her eyes and cheeks. Tilda is an icon of style and a wondrous creature – individual in every way.”


Key NARS products used:
  • All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation (New for Spring 2015; for now try Sheer Matte Foundation)
  • Madrague Duo Eyeshadow
  • Bangkok Pure Matte Lipstick
