NARS Trend Report : MANDY COON SPRING 2012

NARS created the look for the Mandy Coon Spring 2012 runway show.

SHOW: Mandy Coon

LEAD ARTIST: Francelle, NARS National Makeup Artist

TREND: Cool, lavender eyes and dewy skin

DESIGNER INSPIRATION: “This collection is a graduation, of sorts, for me. I was inspired by these rocks and crystals that I’ve loved since I was a child – the texture, the metallics,” said designer Mandy Coon. “There is something so cool, and tough, about them but then the pleats in the collection add a touch of femininity.”

LOOK: “It’s girly because of the eye color, but it’s tough since there’s no eyeliner,” said Francelle, NARS National Makeup Artist. “The skin is dewy for a really whimsical, effortless affect. I also took a cue from Mark Rothko’s color-blocking and created a modern version on the eye with purple and pink.”

Below are the key products used to create the exclusive look:
·         Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizers – new for Spring 2012! For now, try a light application of Sheer Glow Foundation
·         Laguna Bronzing Powder
·         Lhasa Single Eyeshadow – new for Spring 2012! For now, try the smoky lilac side of Egea Duo Eyeshadow
