NARS @ Marc Jacobs S/S 2011

INSPIRATION: “The look is very reminiscent of Angelica Houston in the 70s-the bleached brows and the deep eyes,” said François Nars. “I wanted them to look like iconic models from the 70s with a modern approach. Marc had images of what he wanted the makeup to look like – mimicking the colors of the clothing but not matching exactly.”

  • NARS Orgasm Blush

Eyes

  • NARS Night Porter Eyeshadow
  • NARS Nouveau Monde Duo Eyeshadow (Spring 2011)
