Runway Beauty: Punk Inspired Eyeliner and Red Lip at Carmen Marc Valvo Fall 2013

At Carmen Marc Valvo A/W 2013, NARS Director of Global Artistry James Boehmer created a punk-inspired look with imperfect eyeliner, luminous skin and a red lip.

“The collection is baroque with a punk edge, so we wanted the makeup to have that same feeling,” says Boehmer. “The eyeliner is a reference to a classic eyeline, but with a punk spirit, so it’s not perfect, not delicate. The skin is very luminous; we talked about the girls looking slightly haunted, but in a pretty way.”
