Naeem Khan featured one of my favorite backstage beauty looks of the SS13 season. During a week when many shows featured straight, slicked back hair, and (in my opinion) boring “natural” makeup, the dark eye-catching makeup, and unique take on a traditional bun/ponytail was a revelation.
NARS Director of Global Artistry James Boehmer created a look featuring matte skin, heavy brows, that was punctuated by dark, glossy lips. The inspiration for the look: the former Duchess of Windsor, Wallis Simpson.
The idea was to have the models look “chic, elegant, and beautiful” with ultra matte powdered skin, with no shine. Brows were very defined, and elongated to drams the face. Only mascara was used on eyes. According to Boehmer this look was “all about the lips”, an effect created by layering multiple red lip liners, pencils, and gloss.
