Spring 2012 Makeup Look Ideas From The Nars Beauty Team

March 28, 2012

Have you made your way to your favorite makeup counter yet in preparation for your personal spring beauty look? I can openly admit that I’m a make-up junkie. There are a range of brands that can be found in my make-up bag, even though I am loyal to one brand when it comes to my concealer and foundation. But, for eye shadow, one of the main brands that I love turning to…NARS!!

Are you a Nars gal?  Interested in trying NARS Cosmetics for a new look this Spring?  Here’s a glance of the Spring 2012 runway looks created by the esteemed team of professional Nars make-up artists.

Designer Inspiration: The feeling of the 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring 2012 collection was influenced by the geometry of kite tails.

Lead Artist: Francelle, NARS National Makeup Artist

 

 

 

 

Trend: Metallic eyes and pink lips

The Makeup Direction: “It’s inner rebel mixed with sophisticated youth and the idea of geometry combined with light and air,” said Francelle, NARS National Makeup Artist.

Trend: Pastel eyes with glowing skin

The Makeup Direction: “We didn’t want to see the makeup before seeing the clothes but still wanted a strong look,” said James Boehmer, NARS Director of Global Artistry. “It’s very chalky and very 90’s. To balance the chalkiness in the eyes, we gave a luminosity to the cheekbones.”
