Helmut Lang Spring 2013: Just… Naturally Pretty

Helmut Lang Spring 2013So yeah. Just… pretty. In my head, this is what the models look like on their “off” time. Fresh skin, natural lips and slightly accentuated eyes. She spent maybe 5 minutes on her look and then ran out of the house. And she looks like this.

“The clothes had a lightness to them with lots of color and print and layering so we wanted to toughen the girls up a little but do it in a fresh, believable way,” said Hannah Murray for NARS Cosmetics. “The focus is really on the skin, which is fresh, sporty and scrubbed clean.”

First, the skin was prepped with NARSskin Luminous Moisture Cream. Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer was used for light coverage. Radiant Creamy Concealer (available in 2013, use Concealer for now) and Light Reflecting Setting Powder – Pressed (new for Spring 2013. For a similar effect, try Albatross Highlighting Blush) were used to create perfect skin. Hyde Park Satin Lip Pencil was used on the cheek as blush (new for Spring 2013, for a similar effect, try Maldives The Multiple).

Eyes were kept simple with Aigle Noir Soft Touch Shadow Pencil, Via Veneto Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner, Cythère Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil (used on eyes, new for spring 2013, for a similar effect, try Hollywoodland Soft Touch Shadow Pencil) and Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara.

Lips were kept neutral with Concealer on the lips and a light layer of Bianca Pure Sheer SPF Lip Treatment.

    The lip colour on the model is gorgeous. There is no way my lips would look like that with those products 🙁
