NARS Fall 09

NARS Fall 09

We’re all excited about the great beauty ranges coming out this fall, and are still trying to decided if we are going to embrace the 80’s with fluro lips or take a trip to the dark side with gothic damson and port shades.

Here to help us out is NARS, we spoke to their top Make-up Artist, Jane Richardson who has given us a little preview of their hottest A/W trends, along with top tips on how to make the looks wearable.

Give us a quick summary of your key looks…
‘Eyeing it’
as seen at Marc Jacobs. 60 different looks were created using black as a base for colour to be applied. The message? Have fun!

‘Skin deep’ as seen at Marchesa and 3.1 Philip Lim. Skin was made to look flawless with us using the brand new Sheer Matte, and Sheer Glow foundations. Weightless formulas that went on effortlessly, allowing the skin’s natural beauty to shine through.

‘Strong Arches’ as seen at Hervé Léger. Strong brows complemented the soft smoky eye (Mekong single eyeshadow).

What catwalk styles relates the most to your A/W 09 looks?
NARS is about embracing individuality whilst encouraging energy and creativity, and I think that the styles seen at the Marc Jacobs and Hervé Léger shows showed this off beautifully. Classic styling with strong shapes, femininity with a distinct edge, were seen at both shows and of course, at Marc Jacobs he got playful with colour.

What are your top must have products from the A/W line?
Fast Ride lipstick, a stunning sheer mulberry is at first intimidating, but when swiped across the lips reveals itself to be anything from an intense wine stain to a moody, deep violet. Perfect for updating your look for the season.
Tokaido Express Nail Polish is also another favourite, and a cult classic in the making. It is an opulent blackened amethyst doused with ultra fine gold particles, and a more current option for long time devotees of black nail polish.

For you which celebrity do you feel embodies the NARS A/W 09 look?
Francois used the model Heather Marks, as he was very much influenced by Lolita this season. He was looking for a model who could represent the modern, independent woman, but also had a girlish, innocence about her. Audrey Tatou also has this quality.
