Runway Beauty: Creature of the Wind Fall 2013

At Creatures of the Wind A/W 2013, NARS Director of Global Artistry James Boehmer created a makeup look that complements the collection by adding a new element. “You see the pearl on their cheeks, and an angular line that almost makes the look hard and not so feminine, like a Teddy girl in the UK after World War II. I also wanted to balance Chris and Shane’s inspiration of artificiality, and candy, by creating a look that had a combination of matte and pearl but no real sense of contour, depth or color.” said James.
