Runway Beauty: Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 Makeup Breakdown

François Nars, founder & Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics, painted the faces at the Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 Show and this time, the look is all about blushed cheeks and defined upper eyes.

“The look started with a picture that Marc had of Christy Turlington with really fresh skin and rosy cheeks,” said François. “Marc wanted ‘icy cold cheeks’ and so the blush is drawn down in such a way that’s unusual…unusual, but decadent. Like a Renaissance painting.”
