Runway Beauty: Mandy Coon S/S 2012 Makeup

Inspired by a mixture of coolness and femininity in the Mandy Coon Spring 2012 collection, NARS National Makeup Artist Francelle created a look with cool, lavender eyes and dewy skin.

“It’s girly because of the eye color, but it’s tough since there’s no eyeliner,” said Francelle. “The skin is dewy for a really whimsical, effortless affect. I also took a cue from Mark Rothko’s color-blocking and created a modern version on the eye with purple and pink.”
