Jumpsuit check, jewelled gladiators check, oversized safari jacket, check…yes we are well on our way to decking out our spring summer wardrobe, but our beauty cabinets need an update. When it comes to summer beauty we check the catwalks for inspiration. We went straight to NARS’s international make-up director Ayako for first hand advice. Having created the looks for 3.1 Phillip Lim, Marchesa and Max Azria, she has developed step by step guides on how to get that runway look.

For this show the look was set to resemble ‘the modern gypsies’ with bronzed skin, bitten lips and a sultry Arabian eye. To get the look, start by applying NARS Concealer and Firming Foundation to the face. To achieve that sun-kissed glow dust NARS Multiple Bronzer in Cap Vert over the face then sweep on NARS Multiple in Orgasm on the apples of the cheeks. Try layering this up with NARS Blush in Zen for an added impact, then set it all with a dusting of loose powder.

Onto the eyes, cover the lid with NARS Multiple in South Beach and then blend and smudge Kitty eyeliner around the whole eye, for added impact layer it up with Black Moon liner. Finish off the eyes by sweeping Grenadines shadow all over the lid and under lashed then layer with lashings of Black Orchid Mascara. Finish off the look by smudging NARS Lipstick in Shriagar all over your lips.
