NARS @ Honor S/S 2011

NARS @ Honor S/S 2011

TREND: Accentuated Eyes & Nude Lips

INSPIRATION: “Elegant femininity inspired by Catherine Deneuve and Grace Kelly with an edge of rebellion like Cyndi Lauper,” said Honor designer Giovanna Randall about the look and inspiration. With the venue set up like a Parisian apartment, the idea was to communicate a merge of innocent femininity and bold sexuality.

LOOK: A round-shaped eye combined with a nude matte lip and an overall blended effect. “We wanted the look to be clean and simple so not to distract from the clothes,” said James Boehmer. To keep the face soft, features were kept streamlined by not using mascara.

  • NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer (NEW for February 2011!)
  • NARS Zen Blush
  • NARS Bombshell Eyeshadow (to highlight cheekbones)
  • NARS Alhambra Duo Eyeshadow
  • NARS Ashes To Ashes Eyeshadow
  • NARS Madere Pure Matte Lipstick (NEW for Spring 2011!) dabbed on the lip

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.
