Runway Beauty: 20s Makeup at Naeem Khan Fall 2013

Yet another 20s inspired look emerged on the runway of Naeem Khan A/W 2013 collection. “The reference for the beauty look was Lady Mary from Downton Abbey. It’s a decadent 1920’s, lived in feel that’s all about the eyebrow. The skin we kept a natural finish to make the brows feel less costume-y”, said James Boehmer, NARS Director of Global Artistry.
