NARS teamed up with John Frieda to create the gorgeous look at Rodarte A/W 2013. While hairstylist Odile Gilbert went for a rocker princess look with a cool, “undone” texture, lead makeup artist James Kaliardos described the look as “the idea of makeup that had been applied on the beach – a bit messy, as if the mascara fell onto their faces. Speckled – like stars in the sky.”
The look at Helmut Lang A/W 2013 is all about creamy, polished, gorgeous skin, with the strength coming from the eyebrows. “The girls with dark hair have bold brows, while the blonde girls have muted ones. It’s monochromatic, but I wanted the girls to feel real and beautiful.” said lead artist Hannah Murray for NARS Cosmetics.
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.
A nod to the 20s was the inspiration behind the look at Tia Cibani Fall 2013 Show. “I wanted a look that celebrated the beauty standard of that era but still keep things fresh and modern by pairing the bold lip with healthy, luminous skin.” said Uzo, NARS International Lead Makeup Stylist.
