Skater boys and mirage served as inspiration behind the beauty look at Creatures Of The Wind Spring/Summer 2015. This translated to makeup that was “raw, a little undone and effortlessly cool” with flushed, overheated cheeks and ombre faded nails that were equally as chic.

“The models looked great when they showed up for the casting—great skin, lots of freckles and a left over summer-vacation look to them, so we groomed the brows and gave the cheeks a ” explained James. He evened out skin with NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and NARS Stick Concealer only where needed and traded in bronzer for a new Lipstick for Spring, Ligueria, on the cheeks for the overheated effect. Eyes were given a slick of Vent Salé Lip Gloss, again new for Spring 2015 while brows were brushed up with NARS Oural Brow Gel.
On the nails, Katie Jane started off with butter LONDON Nail 999 Rescue Basecoat . Next, she applied the new butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Full Steam Ahead (available November 2014) to the tips before adding butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Diamond Geezer with finger to create an ombre fade. This allowed the darker shade to come through softly for added dimension and an ultra-modern effect. To finish, she topped off the look with butter LONDON Nail 999 Topcoat.
