I still have a lot of great Spring 2013 NYFW looks that I want to share (and come to think of it, I didn’t really share anything from Fall 2012), so I’ve decided to keep showing a few a week that I think are pretty looks. I’ll look back through my Fall 2012 email folder sometime soon as well and feature some of those.
Francelle Daly created the Phillip Lim 3.1 look for NARS Cosmetics. This is a little bit of glowy skin (what I really loved) with a bit of “sophisticated girl rocker” mixed in. The contrast was inspired by the runway looks. “Fabrics are cut-up and folded-in, creating a push and pull between street and polish,” said designer Phillip Lim. “Plaids are mixed with florals and animal motifs offering interesting juxtapositions of texture and silhouette.”
Skin was prepped with NARSskin Luminous Moisture Cream and PRO-PRIME Pore Refining Primer before a light layer of Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer was applied for light coverage. Radiant Creamy Concealer (new for spring 2013) was used to create a perfect finish. For a similar effect, try Concealer. Casino Bronzing Powder was used to create a glowy finish.
Eyes were kept very simple, the shadow was the lighter shade from the Bouthan Duo Eyeshadow (new for spring 2013), for a similar effect try Fathom Eyeshadow. Eyes were lined with Black Moon Eyeliner Pencil and lashes were coated with Larger Than Life Lengthening Mascara. To complete the look, NARSskin Aqua Gel Luminous Oil-Free Moisturizer was used as brow gel.
To keep a neutral lip, Biscayne Park Satin Lip Pencil (new for spring 2013, try Cruising Lipstick for a similar effect) was used to line and fill in the lips. Light Reflecting Setting Powder – Pressed (new for spring 2013, for a similar effect, try Pressed Powder) was used to set the lips and provide a matte look.
