NARS @ Creatures of the Wind NYFW Fall 2012

NARS was backstage creating the look at Creatures of the Wind this past week. “We were inspired by a book from the 17th century called, The Secret Commonwealth: Of Elves, Fauns and Faires,” said designer Chris Peters. “The clothes all have an element of parallel existences – the real world versus the fairy world – manifesting itself in the combinations of fabrics and the idea of transformation and transition.”

“The look is about ethereal, forest-wet skin,” said James Boehmer, NARS Director of Global Artistry. “You can’t use enough moisturizer – it’s dewy and really radiant. The eye should be defined in its shape but worn-in with its effect. As if you can see the eyelid through it, which we get from the gloss.”

How-to for Hair

  1. Prep damp hair with Kérastase Mousse Substantive for texture, Kérastase Lotion Densitive for added thickness and rough dry with fingers
  2. Spray sections of hair with Kérastase Double Force Control Ultime, create curls with fingers and pin
  3. Once sections have set, take out the pins and gather hair, keeping the front right section loose
  4. At the back of the head, take random sections, creating three small braids and loosening them with fingers
  5. Twist and pin the remaining back section haphazardly, then wind the braids over the twists and pin into place
  6. Lightly tease the remaining front section, and begin loosely pinning and twisting the hair starting at the ear, wrapping the ends and securing underneath the style
