Tilda Swinton On The Town

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

All products, except where noted, are available at NARS!

NARS Cosmetics Announces Tilda Swinton As The Face For Spring 2015 Campaign



NARS Cosmetics announced today, Oct. 17, that Scottish actress Tilda Swinton, 53, will be the face of its Spring 2015 campaigns. The campaign imagery features the iconic actress in a series of four portraits photographed by Founder and Creative Director, François Nars.

Nars, known for his ingenious and rule-breaking approach to makeup, chose Tilda Swinton for her signature beauty and unparalleled character. This is not the first time that François Nars had chosen a less then convention face for the brand. Tapping 68-year-old British actress, Charlotte Rampling in February of this year, Nars proves that beauty -- true beauty -- is timeless.

“As a photographer, working with an actress like Tilda is very enjoyable,” said Nars.  “She is a living legend. I love her bold style and really admire her work. As an actress, she brings such strong personality to the camera. And as a woman, she lives the experience of transformation and expression. She was the perfect choice for NARS.”


Additional information regarding the Spring 2015 launches will be released in the coming months.
