Spring Makeup Looks, Tutorials and Appplication Tips

At the 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring 2010 show, Lisa Butler for NARS Cosmetics created a look that is clean and textural, giving a sense that makeup is there but not detectable from the plain eye. “The idea is not to be harsh. The look is part sheer with shades of green, brown and lilac fading into each other” said lead artist Lisa Butler. The key points include highlights of iridescence and gold to the cheekbones, light liner (almost invisible) and peach lips. “There is some shimmer so when the face moves around, the light really captures it. But there are no lines – no eye lines, no lip lines.”
