NARS @ 3.1 Phillip Lim S/S 2011

NARS @ 3.1 Phillip Lim S/S 2011

TREND: Flushed cheeks and dewy skin

INSPIRATION: “The boys are part bourgeoisie, part rugged. They have swagger, but they are beautiful,” said designer Phillip Lim. Naïve, fresh and with an affluence for dressing, they carry confidence like it’s second nature. Ruling the streets and proving that class is effortless, the Spring/Summer 2011 Phillip Lim man is gorgeous, and flawless-their innate beauty is best expressed through Lim saying, “Put a bow on this gift!”

LOOK: Athletic skin – dewy with flushed cheeks. “They are like school boys – preppy and athletic but post-game they’re heading to dinner,” said lead artist Francelle Daly. The key point is the beautiful skin and the rosy glow of the cheeks.

NARS @ 3.1 Phillip Lim

The Look

Phillip Lim’s first men’s presentation revolved around a combination of intellect and rebellion – reminiscent of 1950’s beatniks. After war, groups of American poets, artists and writers (think: Jack Kerouac and Allen Gingsberg) came together in prominence with the cultural phenomena that was the essence of their writings. They stood for anti-consumerism, they fought the economic downturn and they demanded liberation… all, ironically, in style.”I wanted the boys to look natural, come as you are, with a sensitive look, but still a bit masculine” explained designer Phillip Lim.

Boyishly handsome. Itsuki focused on defining a man’s most striking features, the jaw, eyes and cheek bones, while leaving the skin with a natural glow. “I wanted to make the eyes a bit stronger… sexy, but delicately masculine,” said Itsuki.

Get the Look

  • Face: Cover imperfections and dark circles with NARS Concealer. Blend NARS Sheer Glow Foundation with fingers into skin. Lightly pat a small amount of Orgasm Illuminator (NEW for Spring 2010) on the cheekbones and forehead. Dust the jaw line with NARS Single Eyeshadow in Blondie, Bengali, or Bali (depending on skin tone) to accentuate a strong jaw
  • Eyes: Lightly dust eyebrows in upward strokes with NARS Bali Single Eyeshadow. Use NARS Single Eyeshadow in Blondie, Bali, or Bengali (depending on skin tone) to lightly contour from the inner corner toward the outer corner

of the eye and along the bottom of the brow bone to create a deep-set effect. Subtly rim the lower lash line with the same NARS Single Eyeshadow
