“This season, Phillip created sunglasses with a hologram effect and I wanted to recreate the same iridescent texture – paired with translucent skin, it’s very ethereal. It’s a healthy glow in a futuristic way – like a ‘future perfect’ day at the beach,” explained lead makeup artist Francelle Daly for NARS Cosmetics.
