While we love experimenting with new looks and styles, we also love being utilitarian and using something that works more than once. That’s why we were excited to see Fall’s bold lip and brow trend translated for Naeem Khan’s spring collection on tuesday. Lead makeup artist James Boehmer, the Director of Global Artistry at NARS, created gorgeous, powerful makeup to pair with Khan’s bright spring patterns. We loved the contrast and unexpected pop of intense color.
To create this Wallis Simpson-inspired style, Boehmer gave models’ skin a matte finish using NARS Sheer Matte Foundation and their Light Reflecting Setting Powder (to be released this coming January). Boehmer then filled in girls’ brows with Bali or Coconut Grove Single Eyeshadow before giving their eyes a sweep of mascara. To create the prominent lips, Boehmer used a mixture of four colors—Jungle Red lipstick, Damned Velvet matte lip pencil, Never Say Never Velvet Matte lip pencil and Place Vendôme Larger Than Life lip gloss. The colors combined to create a deep berry hue with an edgy vinyl-like finish—it’s a look we can’t wait to try ourselves.
Another gorgeous deep berry lip color to try—Lipstick Queen’s Sinner Matte.
