At Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2016, the beauty look is all about downtown chic. “It’s the East Village girl who’s been out all night,” explained François Nars. “Marc wanted them to look a little worn, so we created a look with too much mascara, just the right amount of color, no foundation, and dark circles under the eyes. There’s a lot of shine on the cheeks and eyes – they almost look greasy and a bit tired, but still so beautiful.”
At Creatures of the Wind Spring/Summer 2016, models rocked a Siouxsie Sioux inspired glam rock look. “She always had a very strong eye look – it had the same spirit, but was applied differently each time. The look is very eclectic with a lot of layering, which plays off the layering in the collection. It’s punk, tough looking. I loved the richness of the gold against the toughness of the black. It’s an updated, modernized take on eyeliner,” explained de Mey.
NARS Cosmetics and Scottish designer Christopher Kane have been collaborating at Fashion Week since 2012 and their mutual passion for vivid colors amplified by unconventional creativity have now led to the Christopher Kane for NARS Collection – Neon Natural. The limited-edition collection includes 10 pieces for the eyes, lip and cheeks in unexpected shades and formulas inspired by the nature of neon and the nude shades that complement them. Eyes are enhanced with iridescent rose gold, pink lilac, and violet; cheeks flushed with soft beige or hot pink; and lips saturated in high-shine shades of neon pink and coral that subtly stain after the gloss is gone.
