Runway Beauty: Rodart S/S 2012 Makeup

Light, natural makeup have always dominated the Spring runways at Fashion Week. Which is why it’s so refreshing to see artist James Kaliardos working for NARS Cosmetics switch things up at the Rodart show with a gorgeous, dramatic navy-blue smoky eye and lavender lip.

“It’s a really beautiful, round, smoky eye with gradations of blue,” said James. “It’s like ‘Starry Night’ and then there’s this beautiful lavender lip, complemented by warm skin.”
