At the Naeem Kahn runway Spring 2012 show, James Boehmer, NARS Cosmetics Director of Global Artistry, created silver metallic eyes and muted lip while CND’s Wanda Ruiz gave models dark, urbane nails.
“The starting point for the makeup was the Ava Gardner inspired eyebrow. With the bold, graphic eye, but not-so-bold lip, the makeup is reminiscent of Ursula Andress,” said James. “I wanted to create contrasts between the eye and lip. The skin is very cool – there’s no warmth to it, and the eyes are a wash of metallic silver.”
