NARS for Thakoon Fall 2009

model: Agnete Hegelund

Soft, smoky eyes and disheveled asymmetric buns

The clothes at the Fall 2009 Thakoon fashion show were a mix of fanciful and sophisticated, words that also perfectly describe the hair and makeup backstage.

NARS makeup artist Diane Kendal created a look "that felt of ease but that also was a little bit rock 'n roll." Eyes were done using a reddish-brown pencil (NARS Pencil in Mambo) all around that was then smudged out. Black liner was applied close to the upper and lower lashline and no mascara was used. Brows were dark and thick (enhanced with NARS Bali Shadow) and skin was made dewy with a light foundation and a coral powder blush on the apples of cheeks. Two new for Fall 2009 NARS products were used for the look, NARS Sheer Glow Foundation and NARS Eyeliner Stylo in Black (yet to be released).

Kendal wanted to keep the focus on the eyes, so lips were muted with lip balm (NARS Lip Therapy Treatment in Rain) and concealer. Topping off the look were dreamy and slightly disheveled asymmetric buns. They had a deep, slicked-over side part and a flurry of baby's breath frizzies surrounding the actual bun in back.
