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
