At The Blonds A/W 2015, over-the-top 3D nails were paired with a relatively stripped down makeup look of white eyeliner and nude, contoured faces.
With vague references to mythology and Indian culture, the Libertine A/W 2015 collection centered around a beauty look that consisted of a dramatic cat eye and heavily adorned nails.
Inspired by the feminine villains of classic comic books, the look at The Blonds A/W ’14 was all about dramatic lips, bold brows and out-there nails.
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.
At Alexander Wang Fall 2013, NARS Cosmetics created an “almost hooded… matte look, with a gradation of grey color brushed up into brows” while CND created a time worn sand stone manicure on an androgynous length providing an urban vibe.
Modern Medieval was the inspiration behind the sleek hair, nude makeup and nails at the Rodarte Spring/Summer 2013 show.
